Bakkian Chronicles, Book II - Insurrection by Jeffrey Poole is the second book taking place in the world of Lentari. When Steve gets a message from the world of Lentari he and Sarah know something is drastically wrong. The Queen has been kidnapped! They decide to head back to lend their powerful jhorun's to the chase. Leaving Mikal with Sarah's sister Annie and Trisan, his bodyguard from Lentari they hop through the portal and return to the magical land.

The action in this book picks up much faster than it did in the first of the series. Since almost of the characters have been introduced you are dumped straight into an exciting chase as Steve and Sarah try to stop the kidnappers before they reach the border. The second in the series keeps all the strengths of the first and Jeffrey has grown a bit as a writer leading to a more polished book.

This book appeals to the same audience as book I although I believe there was a little bit more profanity this time. No f-bombs or anything just a few more swear words used. I am going to be looking forward to the third book in the series with a great deal of interest. Jeffrey has created a truly wonderful world populated with interesting and believable characters. If you have even the smallest interest in fantasy pick up the first book in the series and you will get sucked in.

This book is a great read the action and story line seem to flow and I didn't notice any spots where the story was dragging. I again tip my hat to Mr. Poole for putting out a great book that I read pretty much in a single day which says a lot about how good the book is. I highly recommend this book and can hardly wait for book 3. Keep up the great work Mr. Poole you have and are earning many fans because of the quality of stories that you put out.

I was so glad when this book came out. It leads you along a wonderful adventure and adds a few surprises along the way. I couldn't put the book down, I stayed up until 2:00 am reading it. The best thing about the Bakkian Chronicles is that the characters are just plain entertaining, no dull moments. I fell in love with the little Corgi too especially when she touched noses with Pryllan. I'm so ready for the next book.
If you love wizards, dragons, griffins & such, you have got to read the Bakkian Chronicles I & II.

I was impressed by Poole's previous book in this series, but Insurrection blows it out of the water in my honest opinion. The characters become more fleshed out, the storyline is simply better over all, and there are some unewxpected twists.

While Insurrection was shorter than The Prophecy, it flows better and is easy to get into. It's easy to tell that The Prophecy was the first book in the series while Insurrection is the sequel. The way the stories flow makes that clear. So while you get acquainted with Poole's world in The Prophecy, you truly get to enjoy it in Insurrection.

I definitely would not recommend reading Insurrection without first reading The Prophecy, so I would definitely recommend getting them both and reading them back to back. The hours of entertainment they provide are definitely worth the price.

I look forward to reading your next story, Mr. Poole. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for writing it.

Some stories have the power to grab your attention and hold it until the end. The Bakkian Chronicles is one of those stories. I read the first because the title made me curious. And, I confess, it was free. I bought the second because I was already hooked.

However, I'm not quite sure what to make of the label "indie book". I know what an indie movie is. I don't know what an indie book is. The Bakkian Chronicles reads pretty much like any fantasy adventure. I'm not saying it's common. I'm just saying that, for me, it's a fantasy adventure story. It's fast-paced, easy to read, and humorous too, with likable characters. Quite obviously, Mr. Poole truly enjoyed writing the story. It almost seemed like he was writing with himself in mind, taking on the character of Steve.

I just felt that there were a few things that needed to be polished such as a more consistent use of the language and some foreshadowing. Lentarians speak with a kind of King James English or old English so it's rather odd to hear Lentarian characters say "Damn" or some other word or phrase commonly associated with 21st century English. Even Mikal saying "Cool!" feels a bit off even though this can be explained by his year-long stay in the kingdom of Idaho. Kids adapt quite easily after all. On the other hand, the characters do seem to talk in the same way (using the same expressions, same word patterns) so in cases where there were continuous conversations, it was a little difficult to distinguish each one based on speech patterns or use of language.

As to the foreshadowing, I refer to a scene where Steve referred to his taekwondo lessons. Nowhere previous to this scene was this established. It would have been nice if this was mentioned, even if only in passing.

Insurrection: Book 2 of the Bakkian Chronicles, follows on from Book 1, where readers were introduced to Steve and Sarah, a happily married couple from the US of A who find out their (now deceased) ancestors had the ability to travel to another world (Lentari) via a magical portal in their manor home. They find themselves knee-deep in a century-old prophecy, whereby they must protect the Prince of Lentari: the conclusion of Book 1 being that they return with him to their home in Idaho!

Enter Book 2. Steve and Sarah, who, by the way, have their own unique magical powers (Jhorun), hear of a kidnapping back on the world of Lentari, and return to the magical land, leaving behind the young Prince (Mikal) with Sarah's sister (Annie) and his tutor from Lentari (Tristan). What follows is a continuation of the plot hinted at in Book 1, whereby sinister forces are at bay, and seek to use the Prince's own Jhorun for their own nefarious means! Steve and Sarah, modern-day magical-swashbuckling partners in crime (so to speak) pull no punches as they seek to rescue the Queen and uncover the sinister plot behind the unfolding events. Filled with humour, adventure, magic and bravado, Insurrection is a finely-crafted work, which I am glad to say, seemed built upon the errors learned from Book 1, which is an indication that the author, Jeffrey Poole, is a craftsman as well as an artist. Readers will find themselves silently cheering for our heroes as they open a case of whoop-ass on any and every foe who steps in their path. With the plot being built upon nicely, readers also have a bit of a hint as to what to expect in the third (and final?) instalment.
