Heart of Tyr by Susan Faw is book two in The Heart of the Citadel series. In this book we are reunited with characters we were introduced to Heart of Destiny. We will see Emperor Madrid taking strides to acquire what it is he seeks the most – the control of all magic and the death or subjugation of those who control it. He is determined to succeed at any cost. Ellas makes an appearance as he hunts his sister down. He has become a powerful wizard, but he blindly follows the Emperor. We are also introduced to a variety of other characters as well. There are some who support the witches quietly, helping to funnel the gems and other items to various outposts. The balance of magic is shifting, and in this process creatures that were once kept in check are now beginning to roam free.
Heart of Tyr is engaging from start to finish. Each of the characters play their roles so well. Elissa is the main focus of the story, but we get to see other characters as well each with their own path to take. Elissa, with the help of her dragon and Djinn, is on the path that will take her straight to the Citadel itself. Her journey is full of danger from the very beginning when she crosses paths with the boundary that if she had pushed through, would have absorbed and killed her. The story touches back on familiar parts from book one as well which I like. Elissa, and other characters, do annoy me from time to time, but it just makes the characters more real and believable.
The story leaves you with questions and with some answers as well. I wouldn’t say that this book ends on a major cliffhanger, but it does end on a cliffhanger. The author ends the story with a teaser for the next story which only makes me more eager to read the next book in the series. I will say that there are a couple of moments in this story that literally had my jaw drop in shock and surprise. So, I think that this will be an enjoyable story for many who enjoyed the first book in this series.
I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. This story is a real page-turner with quite a few surprises, twists and shocking moments. This is a good fantasy novel that will engage from start to finish. Full of unique characters and elements that make this story an enjoyable read.
Charectorization and plotting are excellent.
Traveling with her dragon and her djinn - the conversations between these three were so great - they infiltrate the Emperor's magical shields on the land. This was a very quick read, but it still had a good dose of adventure, and I was able to meet some characters that I'm pretty sure will have some major actions to play in series as we move forward.
The magic of the land and the emperor's control over it were also detailed a little more, and his plans and schemes are starting to be revealed to the reader. There are some very interesting ideas here, but I can't say much more without giving some big things away.
This is definitely a series of books that need to be read in order! I hope it continues to show as the adventures of each heart-bearer as they make their way back into the world to fight the emperor and his evil plan. I am thoroughly enjoying this unique land and the creatures within it.
At the beginning of the book there is a lot going on, and it was hard to keep it all straight. One night I went to sleep after reading a bit and the next day when I started reading again I had to check to make sure I was still in the same book. As things started coming together it was easier to follow, and became much more enjoyable, but after finishing the book I still have some unanswered questions. For example, if only a year passed in Jintessa, how is Elissa not still a child rather than a young adult? Or was she not actually in Jintessa? Also, if each book is standalone, will I be able to find out what happened to everyone featured in this story, or will future books focus on different characters?
Then there were the errors. Not major ones, but issues like leaving out small words, transposing words, or just leaving a letter off the end of the word. The mistakes were fairly intermittent at the beginning, but they started to become much more frequent at the end and therefore more distracting.
