This is the second book in a series and I loved it. I do have to qualify a few things. I started it when it came out and was totally lost so had to go back and re-read Son of Ereubus. I was so glad I did. I not only enjoyed it again but understood it far more than I did the first time. These books, for me, were not easy to follow and without the glossary I would probably not have ever been able to keep up. So why did I like them so well? I am not sure how the author did it, but she created chara ...more
Blood of Adoria by J.S. Chancellor I must first that I am completely excited that I was finally able to read it. The Guardians of Legend books are not in my normal reading range however, I still love them and this second book has only deepened my interest in the coming story. Without gushing too much the writing and story is so smooth and intriguing that it draws the reader in. The plot is constantly evolving and unfolding in a quiet unassuming manner that it happens organically for the reader. ...more
In Blood of Adoria, the natures of Garren, Ariana and Michael are further revealed. So too is the true connection between Garren and Ariana. Warring races in Middengard are mirrored by warring immortals in their own realm, and it is by no means a foregone conclusion who will win. In this sequel, I found that some of the confusing issues present in Son of Ereubus were clarified and so was able to connect on a deeper level with the main characters. Duncan and Sara, especially, begin to feel like f ...more
A great continuation of the series. I can't wait to read the last book. It'd been so long since I read the first it took me a bit to remember all the details, but I caught up. It's such a multi-layered story. So many things going on to so many different people. But it all compliments each other and comes together. My heart breaks for Michael and Duncan, I feel they have much sadness ahead for them. I'm very curious to see the progression of Tadraem's story. And more about Ciara. Mostly, I can't ...more
I've had a really hard time trying to decide how to rate this book. The writing was good, and the storyline was of a type that I usually really like. There is just something about the story that never engaged me, or made me care about the characters. I might've liked it more if I had read the previous book, as this is definitely not one where you can easily jump in in the middle of the story. One thing that did annoy me was the abundance of super short chapters, but mostly, the book just left me ...more
Too bad this book just didn't do it for me considering that Son of Ereubus is one of my favourite fantasy books. There's just so much telling with no showing, no action whatsoever. It feels like the story is dedicated to a back-story, which I normally had no problem with but it feels overdone in this book. I waited and waited for something to happen to the point I was forcing myself to continue reading and relieved when it was finally over.
