Review

Praise for Paula Brandon’s The Traitor’s Daughter
 
“Rich world-building, relentless pacing . . . an impressively imaginative epic . . . While the revolutionary and romantic threads are engaging, it is [Paula] Brandon’s multilayered narrative that makes this novel such an immersive reading experience.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Compellingly complex motivations and character dynamics mark Paula Brandon’s welcome debut.”—Jacqueline Carey, New York Times bestselling author of Naamah’s Blessing

Okay but not great. Could be that I just wasn't in the right mood.Maybe I'll pick it up again later and try again.

I really enjoyed her writing. It was easy to read and kept me engaged. I found myself caring about all of the characters, and even rooting for the "bad" guy to get his girl. I think I might have to read this series again!

By Kassie's Book Thoughts on September 4, 2012
Format: Paperback
I have finally finished this great book! Although, I was expecting more romance between the characters, but it was still a good book. I loved how the author, Paula Brandon, provides the reader with different POV from the main/important characters in the book. To sum up, the whole book was a thrill full with adventure, magic, and suspense. The ending is a cliffhanger and I can not wait to read the third book in this trilogy. I recommend all readers to add Paula Brandon's, "The Veiled Isles Trilogy" to their to-read books shelve.

Format: Paperback
The abduction left pampered privileged Jianna Belandor, daughter of powerful Faerlonnish overlord the Magnifico Aureste Belandor, was shaken with what she learned about the Veiled Isles and her family as a prisoner of her Aunt Magnifico Onarto. She escapes with the help of rebel sympathizer Falaste Rione the physician while seeing her privileged lifestyle though the eyes of the lower classes (see The Traitor's Daughter).

She returns home to deadly chaos. Her father is missing, The City Ruined by disease and the amphibian slaves in open revolt, while those who die return from the dead. Arcane practitioners read these and believe they are the signs of a revelation switch as an enigmatic magical spring the Source has begun the shift of alignments that is leading to a pandemic catastrophe for the Veiled Islands.

The second Jianna Belandor escapades are a wonderfully complex romantic quest fantasy with multiple subplots linked by the doomsday countdown. The cast is fully developed whether they are the heroic lead couple, the zombie horde or the amphibian rebels, etc. Fans will appreciate the Brandon mythos as The Ruined City is a fabulous frenzied forerunner of what looks like the cataclysmic end of the Veiled Islands unless a magical miracle emerges.
