My Thoughts:
Like book 1 this is also a slow starter, but knowing Allyson James I persevered. It picked up quicker than book 1 did and it was a great ride from there until the end. Allyson James' voice is very compelling even though she does have moments of dullness. The world building started in book 1 is enhanced in my opinion in this book. It's like wine, it gets better with age. Or it could be that this series has grown on me. Allyson James's books tends to do that to me. A quality which I attribute to her marvellous story telling abilities!

Final verdict: Book 1 was good, this one is even better!

My recommendation: Wait for book 3 to come out and read this series all in one go, one right after the other and you're in for one heck of a reading treat!!


Story telling quality = 4
Character development = 4
Story itself = 4
Ending = 5
World building = 5
Cover art = 5
Pace = 4

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5 cherries
