Think positive thoughts, Leoros. Think about Atlantia. Don't let the fear, the hate, in.

The Soul of the World picks up two years after The Emerald Tablet left off. The action kicks into high gear as a race for knowledge and power leaves no time for catching of breath. Leoros must find a way to get back to Atlantia, and stop the Brotherhood of the Black Rose from destroying Potara -- but how?

The cast of characters returns to face the next challenges of fulfilling the prophecy. Leoros and Atlantia are reunited, bringing a few new faces into the mix; Kem and Shirin strive for godhood; Dio and Axios prepare for war. The internal battles these characters face are almost as devastating as the physical, and the development of each blossoms.

The writing is immediately different (3rd person past vs 3rd person present from the first book) and flows more smoothly than the previous book. The descriptions are vivid and rich, and there is much more going on with each character. That said, the ending seemed a bit rushed for all the build-up that took place.

Full of action, reunion, hardships, battle, and conflict, The Soul of the World is a brilliant sequel and promises great things to come from this series.
