How do I even review this? Nearly everything that happens are spoilers of awesomesauce levels for anyone who’s read Sentinel, so it’s extremely hard to review this book. XD I will do my best to do so without spoilers, however! *tries to be vague*

Darien, Sorvashti, Aleah, and of course Jet are back for more epic shenanigans. *hugs them all* Jet is my FAVE as usual! :D He’s awesome. <3 I’d say this book is primarily about Jet. We still get a LOT about Darien, since Darien’s the hero of course, but

My foremost complaint about Arbiter is the difficulty in putting it down to engage in real life!

Arbiter picks up right where Sentinel left off, immediately diving in to Darien's decision and the consequences of it. The story maintains that fast pace throughout, all the way to the final page. There's intrigue, battles, fascinating backstories learnt, island adventures and delightful character development! The ending in this book sets up beautifully for the final book, Sage, and knowing Mrs. Fole

I had an opportunity to read an advance copy of this book, and it was awesome! So many trilogies fall a little flat in the second book, but that was certainly not the case with Arbiter. Foley ups the ante with higher stakes, more action, and new information and plot twists at every turn. The world-building continues to be superb, I enjoyed learning more about Serrans and Kai'lani. But my favorite aspect of this series so far is the complexity of the characters. Every character is a mix of good a ...more

This book continues the Sentinel series!
The story is action packed, and I couldn’t stop turning the pages to see what would happen next.

Jamie does a great job with the plot!
I feel like I’m never able to figure out what will happen next and I appreciate that in a book!

The characters continue to grow and develop and I feel like I’ve connected with them and look forward to seeing how they continue to grow in the third book.

I’m immediately picking up the next book!

Arbiter is the second book in the Sentinel Trilogy, picking up right where the first book left off. Darien is given a new perspective on the world after his decision at the end of Sentinel, which introduces an entirely new and exciting set of problems.

The quality of writing in Arbiter has improved from Sentinel. The settings are painted clearer and the characters actions and reactions are even more natural than before. There might not seem to be quite as much action as Sentinel, but that's not t

I finished Arbiter in record time. I could hardly put it down.

I liked Arbiter even better than Sentinel. The pacing was faster, there was more action, the characters were developed further, there were some fun surprises, and there was more intrigue. At times, I wasn't sure which end was up. :) I was very concerned with a certain anti-Joshua comment, which gnawed at me throughout the book. My questions were answered at the end. It was refreshing to see how Jet and Darien matured, and I found mys

I won this and the previous book in a goodreads giveaway quite some time ago, I put it in 'the safe place' that you can never find afterwards and when I found them again, decided it was time to read. I wasnt sure if it was for me at first as I had been told it was a young adult/christian novel, so didnt know what to expect.

What a surprise. I absolutely loved both books and couldnt put them down - excellent for an insomniac.

The writing was amazing and I felt like I could visualise everything as i

This book was a wild ride. I had to will myself to put it down to tend to responsibilities. The scenery draws me in, I can almost smell the surroundings. As a 50 something year old woman, I feel like I'm watching kids grow up, mess up and step up. I used a lot of adrenaline and emotion trying to help the good guys! Even if there are some times I wasn't sure who the good guys were. Can't hardly wait for the next episode!

I liked this book even better than Sentinel. The main characters who were at each others' throats in the first book have matured much. I very much enjoyed J. Foley's writing style and could hardly put the book down. I am looking forward to the next book!

Arbiter didn't miss a lick, picking up right where Sentinel left off. I did think it jumped around some and introduced more characters, but I'm a Huge Fan of Jamie Foley's and can't wait to read the 3rd book in this trilogy. Way to go Jamie!!
