To author C. Aubrey Hall's credit, this is not the relentlessly downbeat grimfest the first book was. Oh, bad things continue to happen of course, but now there's the sense of lessons being learned, progress being made, and the fellowship, especially the twins, being forged into something that will shake their world. When greeted with rejection and betrayal by the true Fae of Embarthi, the twins eschew feeling sorry for themselves and concentrate on improving their ever growing magical abilities, protecting the rest of the fellowship, and plotting against...
For the sake of their imprisoned baby sister, they'll take on their world in the upcoming Mage Fire.
Their world is in trouble.
Note: Those who (justifiably IMHO) complained about the lack of a map in the first book are rewarded with a two-pager, not to mention a helpful three page Cast of Characters in this volume.
The tale picks up where "Crystal Bones" left off, with the twins heading toward the world of the fae in order to deal with a powerful sword and rescue their baby sister. Despite a rather slow beginning to this particular novel the tale soon gets to what the reader expects: excellent telling of a creative story. Old foes appear, but the new location means new friends, foes, and plot twists.
Ms. Hall has made a story she clearly loves, as the storytelling demonstrates, and this pure good will makes its way into the writing. It's a tale of how good fantasies should be: great characters, proper world building, and a simple but intriguing tale.
Readers will not be disappointed, and I look forward to the next book.
Amalina is kidnapped, and there are no clues until very late in the novel about who kidnapped her. However, it is clear that the kidnapper did it to take possession of the Sword of Eiran. It also has much to do with who will rise to the throne in the Fae country of Embarthi. When Cynthe and Diello travel to Embarthi, they have little idea whom they can trust during their journey or when they arrive in Embarthi.
This book is second in a series, but I had no problem catching up without having readThis novel does an excellent job of picking up where The Faelin Chronicles: Crystal Bones left off. Cynthe and Diello are thirteen-year-old fraternal twins. They and their three-year-old sister Amalina are on their own because a horde of goblins have killed their parents. They discover many secrets about their parents and learn that they would have trouble being welcomed anywhere because their father Stephel was human and their mother Lwyneth was Fae.Read more ›
I'm ambivalent about this book because it held such promise and many good ideas, but failed in some areas. My actual stars would be a 3 1/2, but I rounded up to a 4 because Amazon doesn't have half stars and I don't believe in penalizing an author for that. Some spoilers, but hopefully nothing too bad.
-- Lots of action.
-- Interesting roles of brother and sister; Queen of the Fae and wizard. I love the nontraditional roles women take in this book. It's refreshing to see women as the hunters and warriors as well as the men.
-- Interesting intrigue with the Fae.
-- Eirian as an entity.
-- No description of anything. I've written some pretty description-free pieces that needed more pumping up. This book has no real description. I don't know what anything looks like or what the characters look like. I'm not looking for narrative description, but I do need to have a clue.
-- Characters seem a bit more cardboard than they should be -- or their motivations seem less apparent. The Fae seem to just be a nasty lot who have no sympathies for the Faelin children.
-- Their parents being called "Mamee" and "Da." I know this is a pet peeve of mine, but even the words sound childish. I can't imagine young adults finding this anything but insulting to their intellect.
-- Annoying dialogue that repeats something over and over, and then contradicts itself in a few paragraphs.
I've read other YA fantasies and while I think this isn't too bad, it's not the best out there, which is a shame, because it held a lot of promise. Still, I'm giving it the rating for the interesting brother/sister roles.

A wonderful, fast-paced tale that would capture even the biggest action lover's heart!
It would be advised to read the first book, Crystal Bones.

This is a rollicking piece of YA (Young Adult) fiction. Although the developments are predictable, the range of interesting characters more than make up for it. Read morePublished on January 17, 2013 by nekko1
