Το δεύτερο βιβλίο είναι πολύ καλύτερο από το πρώτο. Ο κόσμος απέκτησε μεγαλύτερο βάθος, ειδικά οι χαρακτήρες, η αφήγηση είναι σαφώς ωριμότερη κ αυτό που μου άρεσε πολύ είναι ότι τα κεφάλαια εναλλάσσονται ανάμεσα στην περιπέτεια του Σεννάρ και στην περιπέτεια της Νιάλ.
Αυτό που δεν μου άρεσε και δεν μπορούσα να καταλάβω από το πρώτο βιβλίο ακόμα, είναι πως μια κοπέλα μπήκε στη διαδικασία να γράψει μια ολόκληρη τριλογία με έναν δικό της κόσμο (με χάρτες και με τα όλα του παρακαλώ) κ έβαλε εχθρούς π

Thanks to Netgalley and Open Road Integrated Media for giving me this book to review.

Sennar has been sent on a mission to the underworld to get aid for the war, but it is an almost impossible mission as nobody knows how to get there, and how they feel about the overworlders. Nihal is completing her training to become one of the Dragon Knights with the help of her mentor Ido, and she is getting more accepted and gaining more responsibilit

Non ci siamo. Mi è piaciuto meno del primo libro e già quello non mi aveva esaltata più tanto.
La storia procede lenta, soprattutto la prima metà del libro in cui Sennar va nel Mondo Sommerso. L'ho trovata scontata e banale, senza colpi di scena o azioni emozionanti. La seconda parte è più incentrata su Nihal, e anche qui non mi ha soddisfatta. Nihal è troppo diversa rispetto al primo libro, improvvisamente è diventata matura e responsabile, così, da un libro all'altro. Ma cosa ti ha fatta cresce

I didn't think this book was as good as the first one in the series. A lot more action was going on in both the beginning and end of this book, but the one thing that made me annoyed was tat between those two there were at least 100 FILLER PAGES! It was so boring and nothing happened at all around those pages. I rated Sennar's Mission 3 stars because near the end it does get a lot more exciting and I did like it. Just not as much as the first book, which I adored. I also feel like both book one ...more

More of 2.5. This book is way better than the first one. This series has a lot of potential. The storyline/plot is interesting and drawn together quite nicely. The writing could be better - it's very simple but that's not the issue. The issue is the main character. Nihal is annoying. Period. She is not the least bit likable and it's hard for me to get through the books without putting them down in frustration. The author tries to make us sympathize with her but her arrogant, childish behavior is ...more

Me da la sensación de que hay cuantas incongruencias en cuanto al tiempo y la historia del mundo. A veces parece que la subida al poder del Tirano fue hace tiempo (nadie recuerda su nombre y esas cosas) pero resulta que no, que no hace tanto (o que la gente allí vive mucho tiempo y tiene poca memoria). Y sobre la creación del mundo sumergido igual o peor.

Dejando eso aparte, el libro me ha gustado mucho, aunque creo que menos que el anterior. A ver si el siguiente vuelve a mejorar. Tienen que pa

Title: Sennar's Mission

Author: Licia Troisi

Age Group: Teen/Young Adult

Genre: High Fantasy

Series: Chronicles of the Overworld, book two

Star Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

This book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love high fantasy novels--recently, I've discovered that. The appeal of them, for me, is their scope, their ability to make it seem like a whole new world is being shown through them. And Sennar's Mission didn't disappoint me. It picks up

Sennar's Mission was a lot darker than the first book in this series, which is understandable given that the Tyrant is quickly gaining control of the Free Lands. We see Sennar's mission to the underworld, where he tries to gather reinforcements for the war.

Neste segundo volume d' As Crónicas do Mundo Emerso a acção do livro é dividida em diferentes frentes, ora acompanhamos Sennar na suas tentativas de encontrar o antigo mundo submerso, ora Nihal nas suas próprias aventuras, quer nas batalhas contra o Tirano, na sua luta para se tornar Cavaleiro do Dragão, ou nas suas batalhas interiores.

Somos invadidos por uma onde de aventura e acção neste volume, os locais são muito e variados e (como no primeiro volume) tudo acontece de um fôlego... São-nos ap

Devo ammettere che il secondo capitolo delle Cronache mi è piaciuto meno rispetto al primo.
La parte riguardante Nihal, in particolare, mi è sembrata un pò scialba, mentre più interessante quella riguardante Sennar.
Molto bella la ricostruzione del Mondo Sommerso, circondato dall'acqua, e soprattutto pregevole la mutazione degli abitanti (il colore della pelle, dei capelli), che li porta a veri e propri atti di razzismo verso "i nuovi", arrivati di recente, e di violenza verso "quelli di sopra".

Bel libro scorrevole! Riparte da dove era finito il precedente, ovvero la separazione di Sennar e Nihal, uno in missione per il mondo sommerso, cercando di ottenere la prezione alleanza di quel popolo e l'altra che assieme ad Ido prosegue l'addestramento per diventare Cavaliere.

La storia si sviluppa lungo i due punti di vista di Sennar e di Nihal per poi unificarsi in seguito. I personaggi vengono caratterizzati di più rispetto al primo libro e durante tutta la narrazione si assiste alla loro cr

The second book of the trilogy was exciting to read, although sometimes while you were reading what a character was doing you started to think what happened to the other. Every single chapeter there's something different happening. The book itself catches your attention but I truly reccommend you to read it with attention because ssome important things are hidden in this book.

Ho trovato questo libro buono quanto il precedente benchè alcune parti che riguardano la missione di Sennar sopprattutto all'inizio siano un pò lente.
la storia arriva al culmine in questo libro e sapietemente finisce lasciando il lettore bellamente sulle spine (meno male che ho già il terzo haha).

Uma excelente continuação para a saga de Nihal, agora guerreira cavaleiro do dragão. Este volume explora o pedido de ajuda que o seu amigo Sennar vai colocar ao povo do mundo Submerso e as dificuldades em conseguir distinguir em quem são as vítimas e quem os verdadeiros tiranos. Entretanto Nihal obtém revelações surpreendentes após um combate a um cavaleiro do inimigo e descobre que apenas ela terá o poder e a responsabilidade de encontrar 8 talismãs em cada uma das terras conquistadas de modo a ...more

La suite tient la route. On a parfois envie de secouer Nihal mais j'aime bien ce côté. Ça n'aurait pas de sens si elle savait ce qu'elle faisait : plus que la lutte contre le tyran, c'est ça la véritable histoire.
Par contre, autant j'avais adoré la couverture du premier tome, autant celle-là ne me plait vraiment pas : on peut m'expliquer pourquoi Nihal est à moitié à poil ? Je sais bien qu'avec une héroïne femme il faut essayer d'attirer les lecteurs masculins malgré tout mais... J'aurais préfé

Dopo il primo volume ho aspettato con ansia l'uscita de "la Missione di Sennar" che ho letteralmente divorato appena averci potuto mettere le mani sopra.
Appassionante e scorrevole tanto quanto il primo, denota dei miglioramenti stilistici da parte dell'autrice che bilanciano alcuni aspetti negativi come l'introduzione di alcuni espedienti artificiosi per la risoluzione di alcune situazioni o una lieve alcuni aspetti della caratterizzazione di Sennar.
Nonostante tutto si mantiene su un buon livell

Příběh Nihal a Sennara pokračuje. Každý se vydal svou cestou a střídání kapitol o ní a o něm děj příjemně oživuje. V závěru knihy se jednak odhalují strašlivá tajemství některých postav, a také se objevuje známé a možná lehce klišé téma - jen ty můžeš zachránit svět.

Druhý díl trilogie končí v opravdu bezvýchodné situaci a vzhledem k tomu, že se spisovatelčin um zjevně posunul k lepšímu, se těším, až si přečtu třetí díl. Navíc se mezi oběma hlavními postavami objevuje pouto ne pouze přátelské. Ze

Un 2e tome bien au dessus du 1er, que je n'avais que moyennement aimé à cause du côté immature et capricieux de Nihal (le personnage principal). Toutefois, la prise de place du personnage secondaire "Sennar", l'introduction de pas mal de rebondissements, ainsi que le rythme cette fois-ci très bien mené, font de ce second tome une bien meilleure lecture ! J'espère juste que le 3e sera dans la même veine !

Ho finito di leggere questo libro solo perché mi scocciavo ad avere un libro lasciato a metà. Più andavo avanti più era peggio, più il personaggio di Nihal mi diventava insopportabile, più le vicende mi sembravano prevedibili. Nessun colpo di scena, nessun momento di empatia. E mi chedo, riuscirò mai a leggere il terzo? Forse. Se prendo la cosa come una sfida.

I enjoyed reading this book although the ending wasn't what I suspected. The real battle has yet to come and since the third book isn't released yet in Belgium I have to wait... darn!
But I'm looking forward to read the next one ^^

Neste, temos um foco maior em Senar, mas a Nihal é tão importante quanto, eu seu treinamento para ser um cavalheiro. Os dois tem papéis importantes a serem cumpridos, revelados no final, surpreendendo os leitores.

Riconfermo il giudizio che ho dato al primo volume (vedi recensione precedente), e aggiungo che questo ha anche meno mordente: il filo della storia si perde un po’, e la guerra scompare in lontananza.
