Outstanding! Continuing on from Book 1, the plot thickens and the characters are fleshed out, along with a few more new ones. Mr Poole's writing style is simplistic and engaging, adding realism and empathy to the story. A few minor errors but nothing glaring, I highly recommend adding this to your "to read" list, along with the first.

Yes, I finished it in one sitting. Can't wait until the third book is out. Characters are well developed and interesting - the type of people I wouldn't mind having a beer with in real life. Jeffrey Poole has done an amazing job with this story and I can't believe it's his first.

As I said, can't wait for the third book.

See, this time I was smart. I went into it knowing what sort of book I was going to get, after that little expectation mishap in my review of the first book.

Although the book still straddles an odd line for me between being Young Adult or Breezy Grown-up, it's still a lot of fun. Reading too much dark fantasy makes me expect every "good guy" of being a turncoat, and it's a happy relief at the end of the book when they're actually genuinely good guys. Don't get me wrong, I love a twisty-turning b

Once again I was ushered into Lentari through the Portal of Jeffrey Poole's exceptional talent. I genuinely enjoyed this read equally as much as "The Prophecy" (Book I) Once again my only discontent was being sad that my adventure came to an end in just under 2 days of reading. Alas it could not be helped, as it was a real page turner and there was temptation to resist sleep to read into the wee morning hours. I was simply unwilling to put it down and simply using normal wake hours riding throug ...more

I really love these books. not sure what it is but they are fun in ways a lot of other fantasy books don't dare to try. l love the fact that other people ie Sarah's sister and Stevens parents are allowed to know about and even enter lentari. sounds silly but most books ive read don't let that happen. anyway.. great read and cant wait for the next one.. jack up the price Jeffrey... im buying

Next, I start on book three

I have a lot of good books on my Kindle. I guess I'll have to wait to read them because I am entranced by this series.
I really like this one too. The characters are realistic, the action is paced fairly well. The story is intriguing, and it ended with just a hint of what the third book will be about. I liked how everything tied together, but it seemed a little too easy. The only thing which had me wanting more was the danger. There was danger, but never to the point where a character you cared about was not going to make it. There was the potential for danger, but nothing that was edge of your seat, you didn't ...more

Another good read although shorter than I'd hoped and weaker than the first book (The Prophecy).
The plot was predictable and too obvious at times. There were occasions where I found myself asking 'Why didn't he just...?' or 'Why did he just...?'. There were one or two supposedly intuitive conclusions made by the characters that were anything but likely and obvious and were clearly there to move the plot along without any real effort.
The over-use of clichés was once again evident (everyones jaws

Read as part of the Bakkian Chronicles Omnibus edition.

I am truly enjoying the story and the writer's style. The characters are engaging and it is well written.

However, please get a good editor! There are simply too many grammar and typo errors in this (and the author's other books that I have read) for me to give the books 5 stars. As a couple of examples the town Myrn is spelled Mryn twice and a minor character named Harlen is spelled Harlan 3 times (25 mentions of Harlen).

Or consider this sen

Dragons and griffins and magic! Oh my!
Jeffrey Poole started the Bakkian Chronicles with an inviting blend of characters, added a juicy mix of magic, and seasoned all of this with fantastical creatures. His excellent world building skills, combined with that delightful brew, turned into a absolutely wonderful book you can sink your teeth into.

Book 2, of the Bakkian Chronicles does not disappoint. Fans of fantasy, dragons, and magic will be thrilled with this second installment in the trilogy. T

Just finished this and the first one on Kindle (free for the first one, $3 for the second), and I found both of them highly enjoyable. A popcorn novel for sure...don't go looking for the next War and Peace but it's not meant to be that. It pokes a little fun at fantasy novels along the way, and includes lots of current references. If you're looking for something easy, entertaining and fun I'd recommend this. Looking forward to the third installment!

Soo good! I fell in love with the world of Lentari with the first book but had a some troubled spots when it came to writing style. With the second book, I am completely hooked, and the writing has become much more fluid. This series of books are wonderful entertaining fun reads, I highly recommend them!

Almost as captivating as the first novel - the story is still absorbing and easy to fall into. My only complaint is that the writing style seems a little rushed - little bits could have been fleshed out here and there, and certain times some players step out of character. Not quite as good as the first entry in this series, but I still very much look forward to reading the third book!
I love these books!

I have read The Bakkian Chronicles and all of the author's writings about Lentari multiple times and with great joy. They are well written,with great characters and plots. I'm very excited to be awaiting the arrival of the second Lentari book, and have asked to be a beta reader for the next.

excellent is all i have to say!! that is, if you like the type of book with adventure, science fiction, and magic all rolled into one. had to get all three books to read. had me wanting more. couldn't put it down.

I love this series. I'm looking forward to the third and final book. This is what would happen if some people I know got sucked into a portal into a fantasy world. Fun adventure, funny and who doesn't like talking dragons and stuff?

I truly enjoyed this book, the characters are easy to love and care about, and the author made it believable ( even if I do want a reality a little more like it ). Can't wait to read the rest of the story...keep it up!!!

The second book in the Bakkian Chronicles does not disappoint. Characters have become more developed and the story moves along. Can't wait for book three!
