Aventurine is the 3rd installment in The Chalcedony Chronicles. This book is such an amazing follow up to the first two beautiful novels, Carnelian (Book 1) and Chrysophrase (Book 2). Reviewing a book in a series can sometimes be hard, especially later in the series – because I just don't want to give away any plot lines! I will say that the fluidity of this series is astonishing and the imagery will have your mind reeling about the places and times that the characters meet. I've always been semi-interested in history, but these novels pique my interest to a whole new level. The fact that you can picture in your mind how things used to be, compared to what they are today is something you'll never forget. For instance, being able to go back in time and see something before it came to the ruins that it is presently is so thought provoking.
I absolutely loved this book and of course, I devoured it like all of BK's other masterpieces. This novel definitely packed quite a few punches and left my mind wandering in 20 different directions about theories that I think may come true. I adored the fact that there was a new character introduced to the story named Kye, and he is amazing in every aspect. There is so many things that I want to be able to say about Aventurine, but I just can't because I'm so completely against spoilers. I've definitely got some hunches on things though, and can't wait to see how they pan out. I really do urge you to read this series, its excellence is out of this world, and if I could buy everyone I know a copy just so that I could talk about B. Kristin McMichael's stories with, I totally would. If you're willing to give a new (to you) author a chance, I HIGHLY recommend this one. Hands down, one of the best writers I've read in a long time. All her books are a must read, and once you read them – come talk to me!!!
Narrator Hollie Jackson did another superb job with her performance of Aventurine. She breathed life into this story and left me feeling like I was inside the story. Hollie has no trouble with distinguishing each characters accents and voices. She kept me glued to this story from start to finish. A perfect 5 star rating!
Aventurine is the third book in the Chalcedony Chronicles and, in my thoughts, the second best in the series. We get to see more of Logan, which was a big plus for me. I wanted to know more about this antagonist. I wanted to see him work. McMichael does a fairly good representation of what our antagonist is like and I was able to see his motivations clearly.
Unfortunately, that made me want to smack around Mari. As a character, she has changed from the first book. Which is what you want in a series. However, I feel she is going downhill instead of up. Mari is too trusting to Logan. Even though she goes through Ky's plans, she doesn't recognize the dangers Logan poses.
I feel the book was a good attempt at strengthening the story, but at the cost of Mari's personality. She lost some of that spark she had before meeting Seth. I understand that she needed to play a part, but even she seemed to believe that part quickly. It didn't just piss me off, it annoyed Ky too. Who, I may add, is a very sound voice in the last two books.
All in all, it was an okay book. Not my favorite, but better than the first.
