Having read Jennifer s first book I suppose I expected great things from the second, and some levels it was great and on some it wasn't so, firstly I wasn't enamoured with the change in author, I got used to the previous one and this one didn't really cut the mustard, but what would have saved it was to use a male narrator for the male character as I did get slightly confused between the changing POV and this would have helped with two narrators. But I do want to read more, the author leaves you wanting more, the need to know what happens to her characters hangs with you when you have finished the book - I think I may have to go back and read this one again.
I was provided this book book for free in exchange for an honest review.
I started this audio so many times over the last few months but always ended up putting it aside, to tell the truth, I'm not even sure what it was that didn't grab me this time. I think maybe it was a case of the narrator and the fact that I found Bree to be different than she was in book 1, but I eventually decided that I would finish it no matter what, and I'm glad I did!!
Anyway, the plot, for the most part, was kind of fast paced. By that I mean that Caden's POV was fast paced but Bree just plodded along. Bree is finally free of the evil king, but at a steep price, her father didn't make it and was killed by Kat, not before sharing some vital information with Bree. Bree along with Aleta and Tregle have to make their way to Nereidium and warn them of the King coming. Meanwhile Caden is on his own journey of trying to find an army to go against his father. Can he do it before it's too late?
As I said, I found Bree's story a little boring. I know she was mourning her father and trying to digest the secrets he told her but I found her to be totally different than she was in book 1. In the first one she was kick ass but here she was second guessing herself all the time. I so wanted her to take control and do what she needed to, but she didn't.
Now Caden was as awesome as ever. He really is totally delicious!!! I loved seeing his POV and hope we see more of it in the next installment!
In all, this was a bit of a mixed bag for me. I found it hard to get into at first but about three quarters of the way through, the action really took off and I was engrossed in the end. I will definitely check out the next book in the series to see where the story goes and will still recommend the series to everyone.
Grace Glass took a while to get used to as well. She had a wide variety of accents but I found her female voices to be very similar. But yet, she really brought the book alive. She really understood the story and knew when to add urgency and when to slow down.

I just finished book one and then this one. The narrator is a million times better in this book than the last. But with all good things, the more you make the more diluted things become. I wasn't into this book as much as book one. I still enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone!
