One Con Glory eEally sure if he was the Prince but in thend after looking at what he did his mischiefs and stories it made sense Jonathan the supporting fiddler Again he seems out of place as a character and I felt that really strongly when he just went up and went with Kael when he got captured We didn t get to see much of him and we probably won t in the upcoming books because he s stuck with Claire which is good I guess His marriage to Claire was hella sudden again similar feeling with AerilynLysander but worse since we didn t get to see that drama I won t be surprised if there s another marriage or two in the next book Eveningwing the hawk hero Well what can I say This guy both talked to Kael and Kyleigh and Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows even with the pirates The guy that pretty much tied them all together He basically saved Kael s life when he talked to Kyleigh This guy gets things done and apparently can find anyone he wanted He s way too convenient but his character was really likable I felt that his little subplot of revenge got resolved to uickly but it s all goodNow to talk about the romanceIs I ve said before I m looking forward to Jake and Elena s romantic storyline We got to see a glimpse of it on a chapter on Elena s perspective where they met the ueen of Mincework Looking at Elena s dark past Elena wasn t sure how to handle the gentleness of Jake This would be an interesting couple considering their contrasting characters Jake being one of the nicest guys around while Elena is probably one the meaner girls around you always see her scowlingfrowning It s also a whisperermage couple and they are supposed to hateach other on the whispererOkay now for Kael and Kyleigh The two perspective format showed not only what Kael felt in the first book but now for Kyleigh s as well They OBVIOUSLY love The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) each other and it just blows my mind how onarth did they had this oh no heshe doesn t like me misunderstanding Well I can see why Kyleigh feels that way since Kael basically pushed her away We mostly see both of them being sad clamping down their heartache and here I am just hella confused Some of their thoughtsbrooding felt way too romantic wasn t sure how to describe it but it reminded me of Twilight series for some reason Their scenes on we see how much they care for Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, each other were really great We finally get anxplanation on their blood connection why Kael didn t get burned on Kyleigh s blood and how she can take his wounds It was obviously around Kyleigh s dragon form I really liked the concept And this Abomination thing which seems hella convenient to just delay the inevitable I wasn t surprised when Kyleigh rejected Kael but I really liked how it was on Kyleigh s perspective where we can see how much it really hurt her Plus add to that that Kael knew about her healing his wounds that s one clue it ll be definitely interesting on how this will be resolved laterSome fave scenes Kael with I dropped my scythe Kael throws his scythe "claiming he dropped it to relieve Declan of his punishment lashing when he dropped his seeds At first "he dropped it to relieve Declan of his punishment lashing when he dropped his seeds At first thought it was really badass probably the first time Kael gained respect with the giants but when Brend was retelling the story I thought it was a really funny scene as well It must ve looked ridiculous how Kael could barely throw it at a distance but saying he just dropped it Declan just himself facing the army as they charged This was really A Fairly Honourable Defeat epic It was describe something along the lines of a river meeting a rock Really don t have much to sayxcept it was badass Jake ntwining fingers with Elena guiding her in dark tunnels towards the minceworm ueen This was pretty cute Especially Elena S Reaction On How on Elena s reaction on how can t make much of Jake s gentleness I liked how this was on Elena s perspective seeing her confused Their little banter was great too Really looking forward to of this couple Jake giving Elena the invisible water This was pretty funny We see how much of a nice guy Jake really is where ven though Elena hates him he can t help but help her I wish we knew what he was thinking at this time wondering what he thought about Elena upon seeing her This was the part that made me hope that there s a romantic subplot between the two and I was really happy that there was Kyleigh and co talking about her kissing Kael This was actually better than I xpected as we get to see from Kyleigh s perspective on what was going on in her mind when Kael kissed when during their heist in the last book where he was forced to to prove her loyalty I thought it was hella weird but whatever This scene was sweet and heartwarming but somewhat sad as well Kyleigh saving Kael hugging him close to transfer his wound to her Here we see the xplanation of the blood oath Valtas a dragon thing where her chosen won t be burned by her blood and how it s possible for her to heal him This part really describe how much she loves Kael and it was really heartwarming that both her human and dragon selfs loved him deeply beginning when she saved him from the tempest from the last book It seems that her love really came outta nowhere for her too just creeping in and that s what I felt when I was reading But think about it though Kael never got burnt when he was treating her at the very beginning of book 1 Kyleigh rejecting Kael s confession I have mixed feelings about this scene but I felt it was really significant so I have to write about it I liked how it was on Kyleigh s perspective where we see how much it hurts her to do this I would probably way pissed if it was on Kael s perspective His confession was really interesting where he already knows that shapeshift. Ghts are on the plains But with his horrible luck following him wherever he goes it doesn’t take long for his plan to unravel In fact he begins to suspect that some would rather see him dead If Kael is going to have any chance to survive he’ll have to come up with a new plan and uickly Meanwhile Slight and Shadow is the next book in the Fate s Forsaken series and sees Kael and Kyleigh having gone off in different directions so spend a good two thirds of the book on different adventures but that spiral back in a very creative and inventive way D The book The Man Without a Face expands rapidly on the landscape and scale of the previous bookxpanding the culture and peoples of that they ncounter D The Giants and that Kael ncounters and Kyleigh run in with the Mots provides a adventure and humour in spades not to mention Declan and Brend who s treatment of Kael provides a lot of running jokes and as Johnathan any Arylin and the rest of the Pirates turn up to help in the rescue of the giantess s and their reaction Johnathan Kyleigh and Kael antics is brilliant DThe villain of the piece Gildereck puts in a direct appearance at the Gone (Gone, end following a war of attrition but the Countess Demir does anual job as is bound to cause some issues in future adventures for Keal Kyleigh and coSlight and Shadow is very clever and great rip roaring roller coaster adventure full of daring do and humour all over the place D Brilliant and highly recommended D the story is fascinating however it could ve been great if only a little focus was paid on the development of hero The hero was pathetic there was so much cry that he is a Wright and the Wrights were supposed to be all powerful and yet not one scene was there where he did anything remotely outstanding At least Harry Potter did have an Threads Of The Shroud excuse of being ordinaryThroughout the book i was waiting for any growth in his power or the character itself but alas only i got only disappointment Still going to read the third book and hope that he will do anything significantI just can t leave a novel without completing itmy curse The 2nd installment of the series the book breaks off Kael and Kyleigh to follow them onach of their adventuresMEGA SPOILERS AHEADThe plot started slow and at first I was really annoyed that Kael and Kyleigh weren t traveling together The book followed both of them All Seated on the Ground each with their own perspective It started picking up when Kael s finally making progress with the giants and Kyleigh meeting Elena and soon after the mots I really liked the Kael s story where we saw how he grew closer among the giants Kyleigh s story wasn t too interesting but the interactions and character development of Jake Elena Silas and Nadine were great too After a while I got used to the two perspectives and it really picked it up for me when things start getting slow on one sideBoth of Kael and Kyleigh s adventures involves overthrowing one of the Five I felt Kyleigh s side got solved way tooasy Kael s on the other hand was great but really the real hero was the half hawk Eveningwing who is basically so convenient to be around that it s ridiculous At one point I was thinking that the author had the general story written down but wasn t sure how to connect them so she bring out Eveningwing and called it a dayThe book brings out new characters as well as develop old ones We didn t get to see much of Lysander and Aerilyn but really I didn
t care much for them for some reason Some thoughts on the other side characters care much for them for some reason Some thoughts on the other side characters the battle mage he s probably one of my favorite characters at the moment The gentle battle mage always makes me laugh with his ridiculous uest for knowledge and antics He reminds me of Wesson a battle mage that doesn t want to be in King s Dark Tidings series Jake looks weak but he s actually really strong It was pretty awesome when he used "MAGIC ON THE MOTS GATHERING TO "on the mots gathering to his friends And his scenes with Elena was pretty great such as that time when he was offering her water but it s invisible making her Untitled. even mad He s probably one of the nicest guysver We see a little bit of romantic connection between him and Elena and I m looking forward for development on that Elena the whisperer assassin At first I thought she was going to Kael and maybe have some love triangle thing going on but then I was pleasantly surprised when she reached Kyleigh and co and saw her interacting with Jake She has a dark past hints of her being abused but other than that she didn t get much development She just kicks ass a warrior class whisperer blending in the shadow as she wanted The romance brewing between her and Jake would be interesting as the good in Jake is possibly one of the things that can heal her past Nadine the mot warrior I don t have much to say about Nadine but I feel that she s really mature I wasn t sure what s her age or if *SHE S THE SAME AGE KAEL BUT SHE WOULD *s the same age Kael but she would to be a great close companion with Kyleigh Looking forward for development Silas the lion shapeshifter I felt this guy is really out of place and I was beginning to think of him some kind of love rival of Kael but really this guy has no chance whatsoever So like I said out of place He seems to be another comedic relief similar to Jonathan but he can fight Declan the berserker Another one of my favorite characters this time in the side of Kael s plotline We see alot of character development seeing a lot of his past where his little brother was killed by his big brother I really like how he s apparently one of the smallest giants but probably one of their strongest warriors He was really suspicious about Kael so I didn t really like him too much but once I knew about him and he started showing his support that he started to shine Looking forward to him Wiring especially his interactions with non giants Brend theasy going leader I wasn t really sure what to make of Brend but he started warming up to me as he started warming up to Kael I wasn t Winter has finally broken its hold over the Kingdom but as the snows melt trouble springs up in its place A dark cloud hangs over Midlan the army has retreated behind its high walls not a word slips out from between its gates And rumors swirl that the King has gone madKael knows nothing of this his si. Er s aren t allowed to be with humans talking about Iden and uicklegs which I ll be honest I wasn t paying attention to when I read it in the first book Was this the reason he suddenly started pushing Kyleigh away how they were never meant to be together If it really is it makes sense but really I wish this was conveyed better The confession Against All Odds ended with Kael discovering Kyleigh healing his wounds so he got a clue there we ll hopefully see develop later Looking forward to the tension romantic between the twoIn thend this book was way better than the first having a convincing Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage exciting storyline or two I find that I really like the interactions between the characters than that actual overall plot itself I don t think that s a good thing but wellach book has their strengthsweaknesses Looking forward to Kael x Kyleigh and Jake x Elena on the latter honestly Some parts draggedAs a stand alone book I would not buy it But it was acceptable because it was part of a series plus it was an audiobookThere are two stories in this book Kyleigh and Kael are in separate lands traveling Kyleigh is sort of taken prisoner by the Mots while Jake is healing Kael is made into a slave with giants who are slaves He doesn t leave the giants because he wants to help them and fight against Gilderick the The DOS evil ruler of the plains The author flips back and forth between the two stories The stories dragged But parts of them were kind of good meeting some of the interesting charactersI did not like one part A couple lovesach other but the author wants to keep them apart and therefore has one of them lie to the other The lie did not fit motivations It left a bad taste for me See spoilerview spoilerA confessed love for B B lied and said they did not love A The lie was not honestly motivated When you love someone and you can t be with them you tell them why B could have told A there was a reason and what that reason was But instead B hurt A hide spoiler This follow up to Harbinger left much to be desired The pacing dropped terribly and the main unresolved tension of the last book the near miss romance was shoved to the Against All Odds end of the book as a reward for reading through the rest of the novel Putting that aside the story was fine though Kael s portion was the real drag The drudgery of slavery never really makes for anxciting read The Jake subplot was cute but he s so immature it tugged on my suspension of disbelief view spoiler The whole Jake scared of his own power thing was a missed opportunity Why isn t anyone concerned that power corrupts given the issues this world had recently with whisperers and mages tc The fact that Jake is scared of having too much power is a good thing and a sign of his character This is completely ignored in the book but could have been a great moment of insight or maturation hide spoiler Listened on audible Another great book Great narrator Loved listening YA fantasy with a slight "touch of romance narrated by Derek Perkins Good story and better "of romance narrated by Derek Perkins Good story and better many but it went on too long slowing the pace Ford has a vivid imagination and writes dialogue well but she needs to tighten up her tales based on the two I ve read She writes so many laborative scenes Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils even though somewh Slight and Shadow the 2nd Installment of the Fate s Forsaken series The book starts off where Kael and Kyleigh having gone off in different directions So spending at least two thirds of the book on different adventuresAt first I might get confused with the changes of scenes since I am listening it in audiobook but I didn t get confusedThe 2nd book isven better than the first You get two different adventures in one book In the nd they get connected At first I was a slightly annoyed and sad that Kael and Kyleigh are separated and I wanna hug Kael so much in one of his heartbroken scenes the scenes where he aches for KyleighThere are some dragging parts but not very noticeable in audiobook which did a good job for not making it noticeable Lucky that I am listening the audiobook at home while sketching because I look like a crazy bitch smiling at a
kilig scene or burst out fangirling because of a scene Lucky that my mother is used to my shenanigansT Better than scene or burst out fangirling because of a scene Lucky that my mother is used to my shenanigansT Better than first book but still uite frustrating in some places The protagonist was given a lot of potential but he didn t really do much with it this led to some slightly anticlimactic content The rating this book has been given is good however and you can t argue with the rating but in my personal opinion the only time this book should get 4 stars is if it was out of 10 Maybe my standards are too high Didn t like the direction this seuel went in The first book was good because of the relationship between Kyleigh and Kael and their adventures together But in this one they split up for really dumb reasons and go on their own uninteresting and lame adventures And it s just nowhere near as good without them togetherKael s so called adventure is particularly bad because he is just stuck in one place plowing the fields Then you have an annoying character like Silas who spends time with Kyleigh than Kael ver did and constantly flirts with her And I can t believe that Kyleigh leaves Kael for so long without saying goodbye telling Kael where she is going or giving him a chance to apologize I can t believe she would allow one stupid remark by Kael to drive her away like that given Vampireville (Vampire Kisses, everything they have been through together and their painfully obvious feelings forach other This book undermines Pirate of the Pacific (Doc Savage, everything that made the first one good and is just awful It ruins thentire series so don t waste your money or your time. Yleigh finds herself locked in a sprint across the desert Time presses against her there is a force gathered in Whitebone that threatens to undo verything should it reach the plains But her pride blinds her to the dangers and it isn’t long before she and her companions are lost among the towering dun.
