The publisher was so generous and gave me a finished copy because I enjoyed book 1

I definitely want to read this again in 2020 but right after reading The Call of the Rift: Flight because so much of it comes back into play either in plot or character conflicts or character growth. I think something I am really growing to appreciate is having main female characters who have a past before they meet their OTP.

I really enjoyed this book. Although the hardships that the characters endured on Flight only escalate in the sequel, it is very fun to read because the characters are so likable, and the settings are so captivating. We get to see much more of Eremur in this volume, as lead character Kako travels to what seems like the ends of the earth. I am not sure how much to say about the places in this book for fear of giving out spoilers, but there is a lot more to the world than we got to see in Flight, ...more
