Snow Jewel is the second fascinating addition to the Jewel Chronicles by Natalina Reis. There is so much happening in this brilliant fantasy- from action, adventure, drama, danger, interracial romance, prejudices, intolerances, superstitions, intrigue, suspense, Gods/Goddesses, and intriguing twists and turns.
This is the second book in the series and does follow on from the story in book one, so it would be advisable to read the first book before embarking on this journey. The foundations

This is not my first book by this author, but it is the first I've read in this series, I'll start with I had no problem reading this although I could tell there was a lot I wanted to know about how Milenda and Jaali got to where they were at. There is a lot that happened in the first book I'm thinking and I will go back and read that to get the history especially now that I know there will be another book to follow

I will be the first to admit, dragons, made up languages, and sci-fi aren’t really my cup of tea. However, Natalina Reis is a one-click author for me. I often don’t even read the synopsis of the story before I dive into her books because a lot of the time, I am blown away with the intricate story between the covers, that I don’t want to get wrapped up in the shortened and brief explanations using words like dragons to describe the story.

The worlds that Natalina brings to life with her novels ar

Snow Jewel by Natalina Reis is the second book in her The Jewel Chronicle series. This series ideally needs to be read in order as these characters and their story start in book one. This book picks up after the events of the previous.
Milenda and Jaali return to his homeland, where his people are happy to see his safe return. Hoping that they will welcome his bride into their fold he is only disappointed when their prejudices colour their view. Given that she shares the same skin colour as their

SNOW JEWEL is book 2 in "The Jewel Chronicles" and I recommend reading this series in order. The author is a very detailed and descriptive writer and Book 1 had so much great world building that I think you would be doing the series a disservice by reading it out of order. I actually read DESERT JEWEL about 1.5 years ago and it had a different cover. I was surprised to see new covers and now I get to see what the author envisioned the characters to look like. We are not that far apart in our ima ...more

A great read about differences. When the Elders threaten her life, Princess Milenda must flee with her husband Jaali to the icy Isvald. Arriving back home after so long, the place isn't what Jaali imagined and faces a world of differences and prejudice towards Milenda. Will Jaali be able to make it work or will they end up in more trouble?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn't put down. Well developed characters like Jaali being brave for Milenda while strug

I have been so lucky to read some wonderful stories by this author and I really enjoy her writing style. When I first read the blurb for this book I wasn’t too sure what to expect but it really was a wonderful read. Different to anything that I have read before and it didn’t take me long at all to become completely captivated by what I was reading.

I give Snow Jewel: Fantasy Romance (The Jewel Chronicles Book 2) by Natalina Reis, 5 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from book 1.*

Princess Milenda and Jaali now are on their way to meet his people. They have to be welcomed, right? It has to be better than the way Jaali was treated by her people. Turns out, maybe not. All they see is her skin and what her people have done to them. Luckily, the gods are with them. Will they be able to escape this frozen place? Will they ever find peace?

Snow Jewel is the second book in the series. I did not read the first story Desert Jewel, but I will be reading it because I have enjoyed Snow Jewel so much. Natalina Reis has a deep connection with her characters. It seems as she draws from personal experience or very close relationship that Milenda goes through in the story. This world is a land of snow and ice. She is not accustomed to this world but she is willing to live there. This is Jaali (her husband’s world) and she is a Princess here. ...more

This is the second book in this series and I loved it just as much as the first one. I love the fantasy journey it takes me on with action and romance. In this book Milenda and Jaali's love is put to the test. This is a story of determination and fighting for what is yours. This book pulled me in right from the beginning and kept me engaged until the last word. The emotional roller coaster and twists and turns had me losing track of time. This is a must read.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book as I jumped in without reading the first in the series. But boy I wasn’t disappointed. I will definitely be going back to read book one for the details I missed. This book was well written and well developed. I really enjoyed this author’s writing style. Loved it and definitely recommend this!

They might be together but everyone seems to be against them. After all they have gone through will this be a even bigger test for them?

How can Jaali get them to change their minds about her and what her intentions are? Can they start the new part of their life together without living in fear? A great read of two lover ...more

Snow Jewel (Jewel Chronicles #2) by Natalina Reis was a unique, intriguing read that had me hooked.

Not my first read by this author, so I knew I was in for a original, otherworldly read. I was not disappointed, though I didn't read the first book, there was enough info given in this wonder, were I got what was going on, and the situation as to why they were on the run. The info was given at the right time, and this actually read like a stand-a-lone. But I will be checking out the first book, be

Snow Jewel: Fantasy Romance by Natalina Reis is the second installment of The Jewel Chronicles. I suggest to read the first book in the series to better understand the storyline and the characters in this story. This story is a fantasy interracial romance full of action and drama.

Snow Jewel is the second book in the Jewel Chronicles by Natalina Reis. Although you could probably read this book as a stand alone, I would recommend you read the first book in the series first. You will be better informed as to the back story while reading this book. Natalina has brought this story to life with the wonderful creatures, special powers and amazing world building. The story is full of fantasy, action, mystery, intrigue, suspense but also touc

If your looking for a book that will take you on an interesting ride this is it. The author created a world that was breathtakingly beautiful and complex. The characters faced many difficulties and did amazingly well with holding on to each other. I wasn’t expecting to be so entertained while reading this story. It was almost like watching a novella. Who can Milenda trust? Judged by the color of her skin. I was surprised with how the author handled the situa

I love coming across rare but interesting books. Books that grab my attention and won’t let go. This was the case with Snow Jewel by Natalina Reis. I was thorougly impressed with her writing style and the way in which she portrayed the characters

I was enthralled with the mere subjects of interracial couples and having them deal with everything that they have to deal with. It’s a hard world within itself, but to add that particular subject makes it even harder and more interesting. I was shocked

This book is different than any book that i have read in a long time. It's fantasy mixed with romance and a little bit of suspense thrown in. It had me from page one and i couldn't put it down.

The Jewel Chronicles Book 2: Snow Jewel written by Natalina Reis. I have not read book one in the series and after reading Snow Jewel I wish I had read it first. I want to read the back story of how Milenda and Jaali met and became where they are now. I had issues getting into this story at first but once I got into it I was good to go. This story was well written and the characters are so unique.
