I loved this book. I love Emma! She is a sweet and relate-able character. I can see myself getting involved in the ways she does, minus the magic of course. Amy Hopkins writes this so well, in the first person, that I often feel as if Emma is sitting by me telling me the story herself. It makes me want to close my eyes and jump into her world, joining her in her adventures. Alas, all I can do is wait for the next book!
If you haven't read book one, Dream Stalker, then I highly recommend you pick up a copy of that also. Though they will stand alone once you meet Emma you will want to know more about her and it just makes sense to read it in order. They are both excellent reads that pull you in and keep you wanting more. I can hardly wait to read book three in the series, Truth Taker due to be out in June 2016.
Barrow Fiend: Talented, Book 2 By Amy Hopkins
In this second installment Emma is not only fighting against the things that go bump in the night, but also delving deeper into the class system that has been oppressing her kind for ages. Being a half blood leaves her being treated as a second class citizen in respect to the Talented community, even though so many of them benefit from skills. The undercurrent of the social conflicts in this fantasy setting is captivating as it keeps reminding me of all the things that are happening and have happened in our own word. I find myself faithfully rooting for Emma to discover an amazing and heart breaking secret of her own existence that will enable her to save her whole world and the being from the Other as well. I of course have questions that I realize may never be answered because Amy Hopkins is as amazing as she is infuriating when it comes to giving up information (just kidding hehe). I am rooting for Emma to take the Talented world by storm and succeed in ways that I can't even fathom. In ways that will surprise her and show her just how capable she is, even though she doesn't give herself enough credit. Maybe that is why I find her such an easy character to care about. I look forward to discovering what else will happen in this enchanting and thrilling world.
Emma (Emmeline) has a hidden destiny and while she frets over the issues facing her as a half blood with lesser 'talent' (aka magics) she knows that doing the right thing is a necessity. She loves her life creating magicked teas to help others but she is driven to help the right things happen.
Inspiring, important lessons for all readers about how to be part of hope and change. With wicked humor and incredible imagination this series is a delight. It does not preach, it just leads by example with a diverse cast of fully realized heroes and villians.
Thankfully there is more to come!
