Well, this second book is so far from the bottom that I can't see it falling at all. We saw the first book from Sai's perspective most of the time. I wanted more Dom. KT delivers in the sequel. Seeing the world, and his stuggles, from his perspective gives more depth to this story overall. Like there is so much more that KT can do with it than in just 3 books. I am looking forward to the last book in the series, and hoping for more in this world. I love KT's brain and stories. She has a fan girl in me for life....more

By far one of my favorite YA SciFi novels of all time. KT Hanna has a way of getting into the head and the heart of both her characters and her readers. Her story. Her words. Her strong plot. Her strong and diverse characters. All leave the reader feeling all the emotions and craving more. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series...and more from KT Hanna!
Sai wasn't born a leader. It was thrust upon her and she is learning how to handle that on top of learning how to control her powers. Her interactions with Bastian and Dom are strong without the need to be saved by a guy. Sai is truly a model heroine. More girls need to strive to be like her, including me. ...more

I love being introduced to new authors and stories and love the opportunity to share my opinions.
While I love alternate universes and Arthurian legend, this was a bit hard for me to grasp. Some YA books are just not for me.
There were copy editing errors but even big publishing houses still miss on that every now and again.
The overall story was good.
The plot, a few issues. I understand this to be a series so I probably don't have everything I need to form a proper opinion. (view spoiler)[ But when someone takes your fire magic abilities away from you early in the book, and then you're practicing magic in your room only to have another person take your fire magic abilities away from you a little later...well, I scratch my head.
The flow of the story was good. However, the flow of sentences I found a bit redundant. I got really frustrated when I was told A then B then C happened. When C generally follows A, B is a given. Say for instance, "I was in the shower. Then after I dried off I got dressed." This type of telling bored me.
I read Ms. Lovejoy's CLAN and didn't find it that way. So I am wondering if this book was meant for a younger audience? (hide spoiler)]...more
