This is the second book in a fantastic Fantasy series that is getting better and better. I gave Frozen Prospects 4 out of 5 stars but Thawed Fortunes is definitely worth a 5!

The story continues where it left off and Va'del is still trying to find his niche. He has Javin, Mar'li and On'li in his corner but their hands are being increasingly tied by political manoeuvrings. Jain is still with him and their relationship is becoming stronger as they both accept each other, flaws and all. They think t

I read this and the first in the series back to back, so I'm going to combine their reviews.

I came across them from a Facebook ad that compared them to the Wheel of Time series... That's not really very accurate. Since the Wheel of Time comparison is what brought me to read the books, I want to address that first. There is a guy, of questionable parentage, with the inklings of unusual power and abilities.

Thawed Fortunes by Dean Murray begins right where Frozen Prospects (The Guadel Chronicles) left off. Va'del is still struggling to find acceptance with the Guadel and himself.

This book reveals a lot more of the political structure of the Gualdel and provides an insight into the lowlands. I personally enjoyed the story of Thawed For

Once again I enjoyed this author's work. The story continues from the first book Frozen Prospects and held my interest to the end. There was plenty of action and conflict to make the story interesting and satisfying resolutions. Hope there is more to the story

I'm frustrated that things are still so difficult for the protagonist. I hope things improve in the next book. I'm getting sick of how bad things keep going. There should be some good once in a while to balance it out. Too dark for my tastes.

I don't give a book 5 stars very often but I really thought this book was really interesting. I was reluctant to give the first book "Frozen Prospects (The Guadel Chronicles Volume 1)" 5 stars because I wasn't sure if the series was worth my time but I like how this book gave it closure and I found it very different and memorable from other books so I gave it 5 stars.
