    Amusing characters and magic

    Second instalment of the stories about Raine who finds herself in Tandara a land of magic, legends and Gods. Raine might not have known much about magic but discovering that she’s a Wizard with powers of her own has been a steep learning curve. Luckily Raine has made what I can only describe as ‘interesting ‘ friends and as she arrives in Finlara seeking sanctuary she’s going to need to listen because life at Court can be a dangerous place. Hmm this is a little tricky to review because much as I loved the assorted supporting characters at times the world building didn’t quite work for me. Perhaps it was too many foreign sounding words as I did frequently stop to try to work out what the characters were trying to express which sadly took me out of the story. I did however enjoy the supporting cast with its Trolls, Giants, Dragons and even a most pretentious and garrulous Unicorn so clearly the author has a sense of humour. The crux of the story with a curse at its heart unfortunately took a while to really start to move the story along but I can honestly say that I didn’t want to put the last third down until I’d finished it. I know that Raine is the heroine, our protagonist if you will but it just felt like she was a simple cog at times and part of the ensemble cast so hopefully Raine will actually do more in the next book. If you enjoy fantasy that’s not terribly adult with amusing characters ( I’m undecided if I prefer Gertie or Flame ) and can put up with characters making googlie eyes at each other whilst being heroic then this series might well be entertaining to you. The cover art has gone from bad to worse but finally the overall plot has got very interesting. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    Again...

    I loved the first book, and I will admit I was a bit worried about a sophomore slump since this book takes place in one nation and was not a journey. I am happy to say I was very wrong. There were tons of adventure, magic, and huge reveals. Some I guessed easily, some took me by surprise, and all have sparked some theories about who what really happened and who is really who. Not only was there character growth emotionally, but there was physical growth as well. Raine is still bumbling into trouble and at times it is annoying, but I have to remember to give her a pass because while she is a adult her sickness left her so sheltered that she is basically making all the adolescent mistakes now that she should’ve made ten years prior. All the old gang is around and some new friends and foes have been introduced. There was love blooming all around, and enemies declaring war. Although the ending was not a cliffhanger, the next adventure is about to begin and I can’t wait for the third book.
