This book was very interesting. What I like about this one is that I don't know what's going to happen. When Nikka first goes into the new tribe, I'm not sure what she's going to find. What exactly are the elders going to do with Zyan? Can't be sure. Hints are dropped later, but I like that I can't completely road-map out the story from the outset. Random surprises pop up, too. That kept me reading--I read the book just about straight through.

I found Luka's storyline the least interesting, though, because he doesn't do ANYTHING for most of the story. Lots of action is happening in Zyan's and Nikka's storylines, but I felt that for the longest time, Luka's story was standing still. I know his story/relationship thing was setting up an arc for something else, but for this current novel, I didn't see how his perspective had much to contribute.

I was very pleased to see that there weren't that many grammatical or word choice errors. They WERE there, though, so the proofreader needs to step it up. However, it was VASTLY improved over the last book.

Also, we begin to find out more about the relationship of this world to our world, towards the end. However, still, some elements just don't make sense. Many things are given English names, or names with latin roots. I was willing to forgive that, just imagining that it would be something equivalent in whatever language the people in the story are really speaking. However, when the word Scientia pops out, I thought that was cheating a bit much, and that concept, and the reaction to it, seemed kind of awkward in the story. The talk regarding the Phasma and what they are like also seems forced and awkward.

Finally, I feel that while Luka's storyline had a definite ending point, that Zyan's and Nikka's didn't.

Well Kate has done it again. I sit down to read her book and all of a sudden it's evening. I really like how she sucks you into her books and makes you care about the characters.

Nikka is really a character that has a lot to do in her world and my sympathies are with her. She cares about her role in her world and doesn't mind using her powers to make it better. Now that Zyander is not sulking about his life and has purpose he's really beginning to grow on me. He's really looking at the bigger picture of his tribes magic. I'm glad he's learning how much of his magic is instinctive. Luka, I think has grown the most because he's finally stepped away from his background and embraced his circumstances. A big step for him.

The secondary characters all have stories that are just as fascinating as the main ones. They all make you wonder what will happen next. There are some stories I would like to see in others books by themselves.

I can hardly wait to see how the rest of the stories develop. These are books the I would recommend you read in order as the story line continues from book to book and Compis makes clear what's happening in Aeris.

It's a good read and I enjoyed it thoroughly!!!

First, let me say I plan to read Terris when it comes out. So why 3 stars? I felt this book a bit more rushed. There is so much action but one keeps changing POVs and it can cause a slight loss of thread even tho' each one is interesting.
*SPOILERS* There are more sexual references in this, moving the reading age group up from book 1, in my view, to at least 14, ESP because of the near rape scene and infanticide. More violence, with a mini massacre near the end.
It is a well thought- out book without too many typos. It keeps the reader in suspense all the time. I do hope Zyan is less grumpy in the next book, though.

The new Compis is learning her world is not the perfect world she thought. I have enjoyed these books very much but wish the next one was ready. With so many choices of books I am afraid I will forget all of it by the time the next one comes out.

I enjoyed the sequel to Compis quite a bit. It was nice to see Nikka growing into her role and frankly growing up a bit and beginning to see that the people she knew and grew up with aren't as noble as she was taught. Zyander's story works well, although I am unclear on whether the Ignis have NO magic or just nothing beyond the "common" magic of all tribes. Luka's storyline was probably the most interesting.

One reason I'm taking off one star though is that, like in Compis, Luka's story seems shoved into the narrative. Zyander and Nikka, I understand the flipping between them, they are friends/star crossed lovers/intertwined and I liked how they drew together in this novel. And then there's Luka, out in Terrisville, doing his thing with his griffin, which for two books now has been entirely unrelated to the rest of the story. I have some hope that since Nikka is heading to Terris in the next book that the story line up because his story *is* interesting - the contact with the non magical slaves is particularly intriguing.

In fact there's several story threads that I hope to see more of - Nikka's growing awareness that the role of the female Compis is not only potentially dangerous but highly politicized, the growing suggestion that the Divinaris are possibly working their own agenda, the male Compis and his differences to Nikka, and yes, the intriguing notion that Nikka's little sister is a game changer.

What I'd like to less of, or perhaps more subtly presented, is the blatant "every head of the tribe has an EVIL secret" plotline. I had the Aeris secret figured out as soon as there was a mysterious missing boy (and the Aegis secret in the last book was hardly difficult to spot) and implicating Nikka's parents so harshly seemed like overkill.

Overall though, I admit, I want to see where this is going and so far the series is a lot better than some of the more popular YA series I've looked at.
