Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor.

Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.

He doesn’t know that Zo is very much

I have GOT to own these books. They were awesome. And DO NOT let goodreads fool you I tweeted to the author asking if there was going to be a third book and she said YES and it comes out May/June of 2017 WHEW!

This book starts off exactly where we left off from book one Nameless. Which I of course greatly appreciate. I loved the pacing, the world building, character development, the story. All very well done and worth it. I loved meeting and getting involved with the other clans and even being in

Actual rating: Undecided whether it leave to it 3/5 stars, or add a half star to 3.5/5 because I still love the characters and world a lot. Hmm.

A year ago, I happened to come across the first book in this series, Nameless, and after deciding to give it a try - with zero expectations - the book turned out to be everything I was looking for! It had intriguing world building, incredible development of layered characters, unlikely love (both romantic and familial) between enemies, spies and a g

Zo last saw Gryphon before he gave himself up to the Ram to protect their little family. Unsure what his fate is has left her to take charge of being the caretaker while also worrying about him. One thing is for sure, no matter what they live their life for the other.

Nameless ended and I wasn't sure what to do with myself. I needed more Gryphon and Zo. Finishing Clanless was the exact same. It has left a hole in me, if not bigger than it was before. Gryphon and Zo need to start openly talking to

Clanless the "middle child" second book in the trilogy. The Nameless series is a continuous story and you need to start with book one (Nameless).

Zo and Gryphon are back, but unfortunately only together for a short while. Clanless is the journey book. In this one, both characters have doubts that the other is alive. They have to navigate their way around the different clans to find peace in their decisions. Zo is trying to return to the wolf clan, while Gryphon is trying to make his betrayal to

Last year, Jennifer Jenkins’ Nameless utterly enchanted me with its solid characters, swoony romance and riveting world building. With the way the book ended, I was more than excited to get to Clanless. There’s always a little part of me that’s worried that a sequel won’t live up to its predecessor, but this was a second book that was superior to the exceptional Nameless in so many ways. Jennifer Jenkins has a real gem with this series and with Clanless in particular, she proves just how clever,

Quick & Dirty: Amazing sequel full of action, adventure and romance! If you are a YA fantasy lover you need to pick this one up!

Opening Sentence: Gryphon never thought he’d die at the hands of the Ram.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Having escaped from the treacherous Ram clan, Zo and a group of nameless are racing to join the allied camp but their journey is long and full of unknown enemies! She has been separated from Gryphon, a Ram solider, she has grown to care deep
It could just be from the aftermath of reading a really bad book, but this one was absolutely stellar. I don't think I ever thought about a rating for this book until the very end. So like right now.

I've never wanted sailing ship to land so badly. I cannot put into words my appreciation for the beautiful relationship that Jenkins built between her characters.

This novel is a little weird in that it focuses on two big aspects, the clans and the romance, as the two characters spend their time on

4.5 stars

Fast paced and emotionally charged. CLANLESS picks up right were NAMELESS leaves off. Thrusting readers right back into an exciting, highly addicting fantasy world where the stakes are much higher, betrayal cuts deep, and nothing is as it's seemed. NAMELESS was a book I couldn't devour fast enough, and CLANLESS was a book I needed more of!

Rating: 4.5/5

Review coming soon!
War, strategy, and sacrifices all forming the back-drop to a beautiful coming-of-age story sprinkled with romance - the second in this series does not disappoint!

Gryphon is being hunted for treachery by his old unit, as he attempts to save the Raven clan from a Ram onslaught in the memory of Zo (whom he believes has been murdered). Zo is guiding a swarm of Nameless towards the refugee camp, while attempting to evade the Clanless, wild men of no allegiance, that stand between them and the camp. W

I expected quite a lot from this book because I adored the first book Nameless(review here) so very much; suffice it to say, my expectations were certainly met, and more! Jenkins continues this epic story at a nonstop pace and unlimited action, while still taking the time to highlight character introspection and growth. It was refreshing to be back with Zo and Gryphon and the rest of the Nameless crew as they navigated the dangerous world, while meeting new clans. The introduction of new charact ...more

*More a series/joint review of both Nameless and Clanless*

Rating: 2.5 Stars

Clanless was a mixed read for me. Nameless seemed like a promising start to a new fantasy series--fast-paced, slow-burn romance, and plenty of plot twists to keep readers guessing. I loved the world Jenkins had created and, more than that, I enjoyed the secondary characters and the originality of failing to fall for typical YA tropes. But, Clanless was a far cry from the sequel I was expecting after the cliffhanger ending

Nameless was a book that didn't quite wow me when I read it. With Clanless though, I enjoyed it more than I did Nameless. Aside from the characters sometimes getting to be a little too forlorn, the amount of action significantly upped my excitement level.

There was a fair bit of travelling around in Clanless and I found that stimulating. A whole world of possibilities awaited the characters outside the Ram's Gate. I never knew what would come next for Gryphon, Zo and the rest of the Nameless grou

*Note* CLANLESS is not a standalone so I'm going to presume you've already read NAMELESS.

The action in CLANLESS begins right after the dramatic cliffy in NAMELESS - we're thrown right back into the drama with Zo, Gryphon and the gang.

Gryphon is left in the hands of the Ram facing the potentially deadly consequences of his actions. With his future in doubt Zo has no choice but to carry on with the plan.

With so much hatred and distrust between the clans, people are being forced apart when they
*sigh* I need a Gryphon in my life, I don't think I've ever admitted to having a book bf, Gryphon is my first. I absolutely loved this book and cant wait for book 3! Both Zo and Gryphon are separated for majority of the book, but in their individual POV, you see both of them grow as characters. I don't know how it's possible, but I love those two even more. I love that Zo is such a strong heroine willing to do whatever necessary to protect the captured people of the Nameless. The cliffhanger at ...more

I fell in love with NAMELESS and eagerly read this second novel. The ending in particular had me entrapped! Looking forward to reading more about these characters.

Where can I begin? To sum up my feelings for Clanless in as few words as possible, READ IT. READ IT NOW, AND THANK ME LATER. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY READITNOW. Ahem. Or, you know, tomorrow. When its released.

Adding to that, Clanless was everything I have been waiting for since finishing Nameless last year. And that was a long, hard, painful wait, but was so worth it. We have more of Zo and Gryphon, and Zo and Gryphon together of course, but they earn

CLANLESS by Jennifer Jenkins is everything I expected and more! It's filled with so much action, I could hardly catch my breath! I was completely lost in the pages. The romance will leave you with tons of butterflies in your stomach. Loved it!

It is no secret that NAMELESS (book one) is one of my ALL TIME favorite reads EVER! When I was asked to read and review CLANLESS (book two), my poor heart skipped a beat.

CLANLESS kicks off pretty much where NAMELESS left off. And let me tell you, when NAMEL

Just when I thought this series couldn't get any better, it did. I loved this one even more than the first, and I didn't think that would be possible. Clanless picks up right where Nameless left off. We are introduced to a new group of vicious people called the Clanless.

I fell in love with the characters of this series even more in this book. The characters become even more developed and their personalities come out even more. The struggles and challenges for these characters become even greater

I really wish now that I had waited for the last book. THAT ENDING! Anyway, Nameless was such a special book, and I worried that Clanless might not live up to it, but I shouldn't have worried. Jennifer Jenkins knows exactly what she is doing. She knows how to write a wonderful story!

Clanless begins right after the ending of Nameless, and it is one heck of a beginning. From almost the second I started reading my heart started pounding, and it didn't let up very often. Gryphon and Zo are truly ama

I received a copy of Clanless from Month9Books in return for an honest review. Thanks!
All I can say is - fantastic! I loved it! I did read Nameless first and would advise reading it before Clanless. You'll be much more invested in the characters and their relationships. I liked Clanless even more than Nameless because we venture outside Ram's Gate, meet new characters, and learn about the different tribes and dynamics of this world. There is a lot of action and I like the alternating viewpoints

Oh sweet Jennifer Jenkins, I need the next one in this series NOW!!! THIS series is a series that has blown me away. It keeps getting better with each book. I will resort to bribery if need be for the third book.
So so good. Just like the first, I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the conclusion!

This book was slower than the first one. I usually enjoyed Gryphon's part more than Zo's, because it was more action packed.
The two main characters didn't meet until almost the end of the book and it also might be the reason the book felt slow. I don't know. :)
Gabe was an idiot and his lie felt in contrast with his character. It was like the author wanted some angst and there was no other reason to it.
Sani is a great new character. I can't wait for him to meet Joshua. :D

Clanless is the second in the series. I really enjoyed the first book, Nameless and dove right in to this one. I finished it in two days. I couldn't set this book down. Ms. Jenkins does a great job with her characters, plots, and storyline. This book moves at a fast pace. Gryphon is definitely my favorite character. I anxiously await the third in the series due out in Oct of 2017.
