I don't think I have ever read a historical fiction fantasy novel before! I really enjoyed this book. It is the second of a trilogy. Even though I have not read the first one, I had no problem getting into the story and the wonderful setting.

Rhuna is a grand master in the council of Atlán, a place where there is little to no violence and people treat each other with respect. People have inner wisdom and live together in peace and harmony, quite a utopian society. Atlán also presides over numerou

Because this is my wife’s book, and I did some of the proofing on it, those reading the review will no doubt weigh that in regard to the review.

That being said, however, for those who enjoy the genre of fantasy based on ancient history and events, I believe this is a great read. There is suspense, and a narrative of fairly fast-flowing events in exotic places. The locations mirror real places that students of ancient lands and peoples, or those with a background in such, will no doubt recognize,

In this second instalment in the Rhuna series, we revisit Rhuna many years later. She is living in Atlan as a Healer and as an Atlan Master with her husband, Tozar, and their teenage daughter, Lozira. From the onset, I was so happy to reunite with the characters; to see how they evolved. The first thing that struck me was the mother/daughter relationship and the struggles Rhuna faces to keep her daughter in line, to follow Atlan principles and to learn as she had. Lozira would rather study the C ...more

When the leader falls, the followers seek to finish what their master failed to complete. We were left in a sea of victory in the first installment in the Rhuna series. Rhuna captures our attention once again by bringing us along with her daughter to stop the next generation of possible Dark Masters. 

Rhuna is no longer the girl we knew from the first book. She's a mother, mature, grounded, but her foundation is shaken to learn of the past coming back to attack a foreign place. We see the growth

This - the second book of the Rhuna Fantasy Book Series - is as amazing as the first book. Barabara Underwood does an awesome job of vividly describing her characters and describing the fast-paced plot of the story.

The contrast between the ascetic lifestyles of Rhuna's adopted home country of Atlan being compared with the fun loving people she meets on her trip to distant Egypt, will keep you interest throughout the story. I do not write spoilers -- but you will find that this is definitely one

Rhuna, what shall I say? Keeper of Wisdom, representative of Atlán, healer and mother of Lozira (Melody of Dawn), wife of Tozar who is one of the most powerful twelve high council member of Atlán, Kagu-Hina (Star Child). The story started with a steady flow, not a fast read just a very steady pace. The mystic of it all caused a reaction to my third eye, I got a vibe that captured my attention slowly and build from there on. Why? Really did not know where I was being guided to, just the vibes tel ...more

The author’s writing style is often more lyrical and poetic than it is dramatic, but it suits the dream-like fantasy realm in which her story is couched. A lot of New Age ideas find a home in this fantasy world and are easily accepted as part of the rules of this world, as entirely apart from our own. But for those holding New Age beliefs, this book might well also serve as a primer or initiation into one path of spiritual unfolding. Definitely this is as much metaphysical and spiritual fantasy ...more

After reading the first book in this series but having some reservations, I enjoyed the second installment much more thoroughly. The main character, Rhuna, undergoes many formative experiences in this faster-paced sequel which draws us rapidly into an ancient civilisation far from her adopted home of Atlan, far from those she loves and far from her husband Tozer. The transformation in Rhuna and her initially naive worldview is almost dazzling, yet shaded with dark events, as the plot makes clear ...more

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Rhuna: Crossroads is book two in the Rhuna Fantasy series. In this portion, it's several years later. Rhuna now has a teenage daughter and has grown into her powers and has become a valuable asset to the Atlan council. She however has a false sense of security believing that with the Dark One gone, that all is well. When rumors of the Atlan colony Safu's council members mistreatment of the natives come to light, Rhuna is selec

This is the second book in the Rhuna series. We jump ahead in time from Rhuna being a young married woman in Book #1 to her as the mother of a teenager. Because of her power and involvement in the death of the Dark Master, Rhuna has been appointed to the Atlan High Council. There are troubling reports from one of their colonies about followers of the Dark Master at work. Rhuna is asked to travel to the colony and investigate. Although she and her daughter don't see eye to eye, it becomes a mothe ...more

The more I read the series, the less interested I was in the story or characters. I had little sympathy or liking for any of the characters. I found the men patronizing, preachy, and unrealistic. The women were no better and mostly weak followers. The writing style was stiff and overly formal as were conversations between characters.

When the lead female decided to be independent, she immediately, with little cause, rejected everything she stated she believed and her husband. I just didn't buy it

Sometimes a little difficult to follow, especially with the unusual titles of the characters.
Mandy Walkden-Brown
The story of Rhuna continues in this second book of the trilogy and centres on her visit to the land of Safu (the equivalent of ancient Egypt). This time she travels with her daughter, leaving her husband at home. It's intriguing to watch how she blossoms away from the insular Atlan capital, because she has to follow her own path through some complicated and unfamiliar territories, emotional, physical and political.

Her Atlan powers expand, much to the detriment of the sinister creepy guys still

Great Series

This is book two of GeoRgina Series and it is great. It is well written and held my interest to the last word. I'm ready to read book three as soon as I can find it. If you like good magic, love, surprises and of course a touch of evil then you will like this book. You will need to read book one to fully understand what is happening. It can be read on it's own but you will be depriving yourself of another great read.

I tried twice to read "Crossroads," and I found it to be stiff, stilted, and the conversation forced and unbelievable. I abandoned reading this.

As an only child of older migrant parents, I was exposed to a different culture and outlook as I growing up in the suburbs of Sydney. At the age of 10 I became interested in history and travel, and in sixth grade my teacher commented on my flair for writing.

After a lot of travel and reading about history - I started with Thor Heyerdahl's adventures which led me to other books about unexplained my
