Overall, I think it fared fairly well. I will say the book seemed a little slow to start. It’s a big world M. Gerrick has created, and there was a lot of information I needed to get my head around. There are several different lands with different kings (some with more than one) who have different heirs. There are different houses, different heads of houses, and some don’t get along with others. Ultimately it was a lot of information to take in, so I pretty much resigned myself to accept that a lot of these names and places were just that -- names and places that held no connection to me. I had to accept what I was told about them at face value, and that made the story a little flatter.
Now, that might sound bad, and I’ll admit it’s not optimal, but I still enjoyed the story. The characters and the events that unfolded in The Heir's Choice were interesting and entertaining. I cared about the characters, even though I didn’t completely understand why everyone seemed to be in love with Callan. But she’s likeable, so it didn’t irk me too much.
Mostly, though, I think I’m a little bit in awe of the world Gerrick has created. It’s big. It’s complicated, and jumping in on the second book doesn’t really do it justice. If you’re dead set on reading the second book first, then you should be able to get through it without too many problems. But I wouldn’t recommend it. I think this is a series that’s best enjoyed from start to finish.
**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
The Heir's Choice is the sequel to The Vanished Knight and starts with Callan's insistence on going to meet her grandfather, King Keill of the elves, despite everyone else's warnings and protests that she's making a really bad decision.
There's something of a love quartet going on here - actually kind of like 3 guys going after 1 girl, who really has too many things on her mind to even start worrying about who she might or might not eventually hook up with. Especially when she's being forced to marry the enemy in order to avert a war.
More is also told of James and Ward, Callan's new foster brothers, and their role in the unfolding drama, although it's not quite clear yet what they are capable of.
I do realise I tend to have rosier views of first books in a series and then get a reality check in the next book. But I will say this, I do like this series and hope to continue all the way to its expected end in book 6.
Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, it's somewhat difficult to keep track of all the kings and kingdoms, but it doesn't really matter. The story is more than interesting enough to make those details irrelevant. Secret doors leading to secret worlds? Check! Knights. castles, and sword fights? Check! Action and adventure? Oh yeah! And let's not forget the magic... both good and bad. Honor and sacrifice, underhandedness and evil...they're all in there. What's not to like? Oh yeah... we have to wait for the next installment... darn it.
Four and a half stars, rounded up to five.
