and adventure but as a Christian have found that so many people blur the line between what is Christian fiction and
what is not clean fiction. Joan has found the perfect mark for fiction that is not preachy so a person who is a non believer could read
it and not be put off but also as a believer I can read it and not be sorry I did. It has nothing of questionable content in it, while
filling the pages with excellent development of the main characters and enough mystery and suspense to keep one turning the
pages until its finished. So happy to have found her books since they are not only excellent but something I can tell people about
and pass to my adult and younger kids without being afraid of questionable content. Well done Joan.
I wondered. How long must I wait to learn the fate of Shara, the woman-child seeking her identity and purpose? How will Nyla make sense of her disingenuous past, life-threatening present-day circumstances, and uncertain future? And what of Nicho who had discovered his mother’s faith to be true? How will he live his life now? These are a few of the questions that hovered in the space of my mind as I finished the Heirs of Tirragyl, the second book of Joan Campbell’s Poison Tree Path Chronicles. As I set this book down, I desired to pick the next one up immediately. To say that I cannot wait for the third installment is an understatement! Heirs of Tirragyl is a heart-and-soul-gripping, page-turner!
Heirs of Tirragyl continues the identity quest of Shara that began in Joan Campbell’s first book, Chains of Gwyndoor. As she hides away from her enemies, Shara’s impulsive and ultimately compulsive nature cause her to make some unfortunate and dangerous choices. She allows herself to become vulnerable to her nemesis, Lucian, who desires to master and control Shara for reasons not yet known to the reader. Meanwhile, Nyla, heiress to the throne of Tirragyl, becomes central to the story line. Nyla is confronted by the realities of deceit, dishonor, betrayal, and the ultimate sacrifice as she escapes a near-death experience. Again, it is Lucian who exploits both power and position to forge distrust and division between Nyla and her twin brother, Alexor. Lucian’s mastery over Alexor is a preliminary step to control Tirragyl, remove Nyla, and discover Shara’s hiding place.
Joan Campbell weaves a compelling, fantasy tale of, class struggle, loyalty, betrayal, suffering, heroism, sacrifice, survival and ultimately, good versus evil. One cannot help but admire Nicho’s courage, feel betrayed by, but understand Shara’s choices, be protective of Nyla, and desire freedom for the Parashi people. An exceptional author invokes her readers to love and care for her characters and desire the best for them. Heirs of Tirragyl hits that mark for me. I highly recommend Joan Campbell’s Heirs of Tirragyl.
From reading the first few pages, one would not think things could greatly turn very grave by the end.
The author proved me to be wrong (like really really wrong).
I totally didn't expect for things to go down like they did for Shara. I absolutely LOVED her in book one, but was so shocked and devastated by her choices in book two. It was alarming indeed as a reader and I hope she has a beautiful story of hope and redemption in book three.
Nyla and her lady-in-waiting were an interesting part of this book. (I actually wish we got more of Nyla's story which is why I didn't give Heirs a full five stars.) While you get magic in one story, you get a lot of court intrigue and deceit (plus a whole bunch of other things that won't be mentioned) in hers. She was such a compassionate person and I admire her desire to be strong and help her people.
Not only did this author prove me wrong in how bad things could really get, she also surprised me. I wasn't prepared for one "tribe" that had one of the most fascinating views concerning death I have ever read. Also, I wasn't prepared for _____ to __! I definitely cried at that part and so desperately didn't want her to __! (The blanks are placed so it won't be a spoiler.)
Overall, this was a very good fantasy read! I was a little disappointed with the ending because I wanted a little more closure from the women's perspective, but it ends on a big cliff hanger for all the characters. I'm definitely wanting to know what happens next, but I wouldn't say "eager" because I could imagine things are going to get much much worse than they have already gotten.
As a note, I would suggest reading book one, Chains of Gwyndorr, because it creates a much better understanding for certain characters.
If you enjoy reading fantasy with original characters and a unique story, I would highly suggest this book!
