The second in the series didn't disappoint.Once again it was a fast read with the same four main characters. The action was pretty much nonstop until the end. I will be looking forward to the next installment.

This book had such good detail. I felt like I was running for my life in the underworld. Certainly never want to be there. Good book.
Highly complex fantasy tale of magical teens fighting for life, freedom and their people

Recommends it for: pre-teen, high schoolers, those who read book 1
Even better than the first book!

Overall Rating: 4 stars

A continuation from Fire Mage (Book 1 in the Blacklight Chronicles), this fantasy book picks up where the first ended. Talis Storm and his 3 companions are slaves on a ship bound for the island they so desperately need in order to find the temple of the goddess Nacrea, which will hopefully give them a way to save their native land of Naru. Throughout this novel, the focus is more on the battle for leadership between Talis and Rikar ,

Sun Mage is book 2 in the Blacklight Chronicles written by John Forrester and it was AWESOME! I had the pleasure of reading both books in the series pretty much back to back and everything that I was disappointed with (which wasnt much), in the first one was forgotten. The fast pace for this book, like the first one, makes it a great read for pre-teens, teens and adults. A classic high fantasy novel with gods, magic, friendship and deception. We start the novel with Talis, Mara, Nikulo and Rikar ...more

Wow another dazzling tale from John Forrester. Talis has the daunting task of finding the Temple of the Sun goddess Nacrea. Together with his friends he winds up as a slave sold into bondage by slave traders. After escaping unknowingly using Aurellia the Immortal Sorcerer the adventure turns more perilous with each step. A rousing page turner for MG and older. Must read if you read Fire Mage.
Shane Wilson
This is a great 2nd installment:

the characters are beleivable and flawed.

When the hard times come, the boy gives it all for his friends.

The girl loves the boy and he loves her back, niether as of yet admits this.

this is a series anyone can read and enjoy
Great book in the series never quite going the way you think it will but always exciting and full of action packed adventure of four friends sticking together until the end with one lost but hopefully soon to be found and rescued from his dark master over lord.

A Quest completed

A Quest completed

This is the second in a series of four. Interesting concepts of light and dark as well as life and death. A son's courageous love for his father, a daughter's refusal to accept the husband selected for her, a young man with knowledge of alchemy and our hero whose beliefs, love of family, home and hid Goddess make up the Questing youths. Lessons of history, worship and the vagaries of their Gods lead them along pathways which include betrayal, deception, bondage
loving it so far
was way good, just started the third one

I love how Sun Mage picks up right where Fire Mage left off. The journey these kids are on just keeps getting better in my opinion. The story still flowed and I really enjoyed book 2. Anxiously looking forward to book 3 now. I want to know what happens next.
Must read

I just started this series a few days ago and am starting the third one now. It is full of action and adventure. I just purchased books three and four, and can't wait to read them.

I enjoyed this second installment a little more than the 1st book. did the goddess give Talis the means for black and/or shadow magic? can he overcome the evil others see in the black crystal? just starting 3rd book.

Another amazing installment in this series. I can't wait to read the next one. A definite must read! Highly recommended.

Good pace in this next installment and some unexpected twists and turns...who is the enemy?
Chad Stewart
I thought this book was a little bit better than the first book, Fire Mage. It seemed as though the writer was trying hard to be descriptive using adjectives and adverbs, but not actually describing anything. I found myself having to re-read sentences just to figure out what was said through all of the adjectives. This book did have a better story to it though, and it actually had an event that was complete at the end of the book.
Donna Huber
This one was much darker. Felt there could have been a more detail about the world, especially who Aurellia is. See my full review at Girl Who Reads .
Not as good as the first book. Story is convoluted with lots of strange parts that are dreams or visions. Not everything is tied together at the end.
Not bad but pretty short
Review coming soon!
