'Kiera opened her eyes to view the colourless sky above. Everything seemed hazy. Her brain felt like a sponge, like it was too big for her head. Her body ached and was angry with her. Then she remembered.'

Firstly I’d like to thank Kristy Brown for sending me this eBook to read and review. I previously read, and really enjoyed, the first book in the Kiera’s Quest series Kiera’s Quest: Awakenings so I was looking forward to this one which is the second in the series.

Again this jumped straight into the action following Kiera and Zakk as they tried to save her friend, the addition of Jude and Alex made things very interesting with Kiera becoming a little bit jealous and territorial over Zakk. The won

This book starts off right where the first book ended. We must say Sacrifices is just as good or maybe a bit better than the first book Awakenings. This story is incredible and has an ending you do not see coming.Sacrifices is filled with action, a little romance, and wonderful adventures that combine the world of Vortex, which we wish really existed, and Earth. Kristy does a remarkable job ending each chapter with a cliffhanger that makes it difficult to put the book down. She also has a brill ...more

Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices is the wonderfully inventive sequel to the hugely enjoyable Awakenings, released last year.

Filled with action and adventure, Kiera’s quest to save her best friend is fraught with even more danger, more double crossing, and sewer tunnels filled with poo! The cast of characters remains as colourful as ever, with the introduction of new faces adding to the charm of Awakenings.

Alongside Kiera again is Zakk, Prince of Zantar, and newbie, Mouse, a cheeky little Nerakian who
Book Chatter-Cath
For a reasonably short read, Sacrifices has a lot going on.

Lots of new friends and some new foes; a few friendly faces re-appear, and some new twists and turns make for a non stop reading adventure.

However, lots of scene changes and different points of view did make it a slightly disjointed read, I mean 28 chapters in less than 80 pages? Overall I think it worked out okay, but it did take me a few of those chapters to get back into the fast paced world that author Kristy Brown has created.

Kiera's Quest: Sacrifices is the wonderful sequel to Kristy Brown's first book, Awakenings. The heady pace continues and I soon found myself being swept along by the story as Kiera's adventure twists and turns through a fantastical world. Kristy's characters jump from the page, are well rounded, with some great wise-cracking dialogue that had me frequently grinning as I read. If there was a scale for measuring the amount of creative energy vibrating within the pages of a book, out of ten this wo ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

This is the second book in a YA series for children aged 9 to 16. I really enjoyed it!

Kiera Matthews is a wonderful character. She is a typical young teen with hopes and dreams. I liked her very much. She is kind, caring and sensible. However, after meeting Zakk, a prince from Zantar, a parallel world, and battling the Witch Queen there, Kiera is now struggling to come to terms with the loss of her friends, Joe and Daz.

Kiera's Quest: Sacrifices picks up right where the first book leaves off; with Kiera and the charming Prince Zakk on a mission to rescue a friend.

Overall, I'd just like to generally state that the grammar/punctuation/spelling in this book was much better than in the first. I was literally SO HAPPY. Finally...real editing.

That being said, it does still have it's issues. And let's not kid ourselves, the most blatantly

Sacrifices is book two in Kiera's Quest . These books are aimed at tweens and up. I really loved book 1, Awakenings and could quite easily see it as a basis for a Disney movie.

Kristy has such fun with her characters and the Witch is always a hoot. These are deliberately short reads. Short quests that Kiera and crew go on.

Sacrifices is the second book in the fantasy series Kiera’s Quest targeted at the YA/tween audience.

You can read my review of the first book, Awakenings, here.

Sacrifices opens with Kiera’s friend Joe in the clutches of the Witch Queen. She is very weak after almost being defeated by Kiera although she has her way of replenishing her energy.

We’re introduced to new character Jude (aka Mouse). Jude is their guide through the sewer tunnels that will eventually lead them to the Dark Palace.

Sacrifices is another short, intense read from Brown. The story picks up right where Awakenings left off and we join Kiera and Zakk as they go back to his world to save her friend. We get introduced to new characters in Sacrifices that will make or break this quest to save Joe. Will they be able to save him before it is too late? Or was this quest doomed before it even began?

Brown is a wonderful story teller and seeing the worlds she has created for this series is truly fantastic. Not only do we

After their tangle with the Witch Queen, Kiera and Prince Zakk make it out alive but lose friends. When Prince Zakk asks Kiera to help him save Joe and Daz, she jumps at the chance. She can't imagine life without them. They know it won't be easy because the Witch Queen is sure to be watching for them, but with some help, they just might be able to rescue Joe and Daz and save themselves. They never expect life changing secrets to be revealed.

As we get into book 2, the writing just keeps getting better. I most definitely read this one in one sitting. There wasn’t a boring moment, and the author did a great job keeping you guessing as to what was coming next. I even had a hard time knowing who was on Kiera’s side and who was just pretending – it was hard to trust any character, and it was perfect.

As I mention in my review of the first book, this book is most definitely a “tween” read, so I wouldn’t recommend trying to read it from an

The pair must race against time and the Witch's minions to free their friends from the Witch's clutches and prevent her from taking over the Earth and the entire universe.

This book 2 in the series can be read as a stand alone, or in sequence.

Kiera is a gutsy young woman, who doesn't hesitate to jump in with both feet, especially when her good friend Zakk asks for help.

Kiera finds out that all is not what it seems as she works to rescue 9 members from another world.

this book has adventure, drama, typical teen antic's, that make it a great read for not just YA but any age group. Can't wait to see what happens next.

This is book 2 in the Kiera's Quest Series. In this installment, Kiera is on a quest with Price Zakk in his world to rescue her friend. Little did she know, she would actually have several lives to save. Will this quest be worth the sacrifices Kiera will have to make? And will she come closer to the truth of why or if she is the chosen one?

Sacrifices picks off right where Awakenings left off. Kiera and Zakk go back into the fantasy world, and right away we are swept away into a magical world. Kiera definitely has to find her way in this one, and she also had to find her confidence. I enjoyed watching that development.

A lot of different story lines are happening at the same time and each one is exciting. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. There was also different POV which I always enjoy.

Well I just finished reading this second book in Kiera's Quest, and again I'd give it a high recommendation for an exciting, in your face adventure. Following the pacey trend of the first book, this launches you straight into the continuing adventure and you will quickly become absorbed by it just like in the first. There is a clear development .. no spoilers of course but things you thought you knew may twist or change into something else. I really enjoyed the quirky descriptions and extended c ...more

I want to start off by saying that I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Overall I enjoyed the second book of Keiras quest, however it was pretty slow paced even for such a short book (in my opinion anyway). Once the action got going it was very intriguing. I want to know what will happen in the next book especially since the vortex is closed.

I would recommend this book to those who like fantasy books.
Prince Zakk needs Kiera's help again, with the Witch Queen intent on ruling. Kiera is only coming to terms with her friends death, she and Zakk begin a journey that ends up affecting everyone they are close to.

Another thrilling chapter to the Kiera's Quest series. There is a visual quality to the story, you can easily imagine the scenarios that Kiera and Zakk find themselves in. Great read.

A brilliant follow up that begins exactly were book 1 Awakenings finishes and once again Kristy leaves the reader wanting more.
Kiera is coming to terms with who she is, Maddy is missing her friend and there is an interesting twist with Captain Terrence.
And there are still books 3 & 4 to look forwarded to.
