Kept me turning the pages

J. Thorn has accomplished something impressive. He got me from the beginning. Racing with Samuel to the top of the mountain only to escape to a new world. Looking forward to the finale

Absolute inspiring descriptive writing. The detailed scene pops into your mind so quickly and implants itself vividly. "Infused flame of liquid fuel, burning hot and fast in oranges and reds instead of the yellow and green hues." I saw those flames burning! Reversion, the cycle or infinite strands or a single strand? Need to reach that mountain peak. Dreams can't be distinguish sometimes, is it real? No...... a dream? A memory? Deva's cryptic language. Where exactly is here? Now I'm trying to ...more

*free ebook version received from author in exchange for an honest review*

I will say that the first part of this story worried me. It sounded a bit too much like the first book in the Portal Arcane trilogy. I found it quite annoying when the author would repeat whole bits of dialogue from one character, only having that character state it towards a new character. I also found it a bit formulaic in terms of number of characters and gender. I tend to get annoyed when authors have multiple books wi

There are times with this series where things are so tangled up that I don't know who to trust. In a good way, mind you. Everybody seems to have an agenda and figuring out whether they're truly there to help Samuel or hinder him is half the fun.

I'm not going to lie, I suspected every single character of being a bad guy at one point or another. INCLUDING SAMUEL. Not that he's bad, necessarily, but he definitely has his eye on the prize. Even if he's not quite sure what that prize is. The fact tha

I enjoyed reading this book, but not as much as the first. I had a harder time relating to the characters that were introduced in this book. The story felt a little too rushed. I wish there would have been more time to get to know the characters, beyond the major events. One of the things that define a strong book in this genre to me is how detailed and intricate the story is, and sadly this book left me wanting more.

I liked this book. As the second book in the series, it answered a lot of questions about the relationship between Deva, Samuel, and Kole, and Major. It also introduced Lindsey, a completely new character.It does not end in a cliffhanger, but I can't wait to find out what happens in the third book.

Once again J Thorn has written an excellent book following on from the end of the previous book. Samuel and Kole are still running from the cloud and the pack and trying to stay alive.

J thorn lent me this as a preview copy and I was once again enthralled. I can't wait until the next book.
