Jon continues to learn balance as he struggles to help those in need and study for his college classes. His magician skills are increasing and he is learning how to control them. He works with his mentor to save a group of orphans. I liked seeing his interactions with other young people who are just like him. I think the author did a good job of continuing this story and developing the characters. I liked learning more about Jon and Jordan. I am wicked curious about Jon’s father, and I have a guess, but I suppose I will have to wait until the future. (insert me with my arms crossed stamping my foot in a toddler- like tantrum)
The new characters who were introduced in this tale were a nice addition to the cast. While I liked having such a strong focus on Jon when I first met him, meeting so many other magic users really fleshed out the world they all lived in. The number of people who has these abilities was so small that I was thrilled to see so many folks like Jon. It wasn’t something I was expecting to see happen, but it was a great way to push the plot forward.
There were pacing issues, and most of them were due to the plot getting off to such a slow start. As much as I liked the first novel in this series, I struggled to get into this one in the beginning because of how much time it took for anything exciting to happen to Jon or anyone else in his life. There were so many interesting conflicts in his previous adventure that I was expecting him to jump right into them in the sequel. When that didn’t happen, I was surprised and a little confused.
With that begin said, the storyline was solid once things began moving along more quickly. One of the things I enjoy the most about this universe is how much freedom it gives readers to come up with our own theories about how certain parts of it works. The basic explanations of magical society were there again this time, but I liked being able to test my ideas on how it all fit together against what the plot and characters eventually revealed to me. Whether I was wrong or right, it was fun to think logically and methodically about this stuff while I was reading.
This book is the second in a series. It can be read on its own or out of order.
Grimm Remains should be read by anyone who enjoys modern fantasy.
