This chapter in the saga delves more into teen heroine Skylee Porter’s past, and explores her father’s spell at a Primortus. The romantic tension between Skylee and Will is continued from the first book, but it’s Chrism and Airon’s relationship that will really give readers something to talk about. Let’s just say, well, it’s complicated. Ultimately, Skylee learns more about her own powers, how to use them and must push herself to the limits against an enemy set to destroy her fragile world that’s recovering from a recent apocalypse. Along the way, a few secrets are revealed while a few mysteries deepen. It’s clear that we (the reader) are just seeing the tip of the iceberg. So many of the glimpses of this world imply that there’s a lot more to come in the next segment.
Like the first book, the descriptions are vivid and engaging. The characters develop as the story unfolds. It’s fun getting to know these kids as individuals, and not just young adult tropes. The dialog is clever, providing character insight as well as a few laughs. Best of all, the plot balances a world with supernatural and sci-fi landscapes, that is both completely plausible and ultimately satisfying.
This was a fantastic addition journey and a must read for fantasy & dystopian genre-readers.
Skylee faces new challenges, both in her powers and interpersonal relationships, and the increase in complexity of her character was enjoyable to read and very believable. I anxiously await the next book in the series!
The character development in this novel is absolutely breathtaking. The characters are simultaneously larger than life and completely realistic. The authors make the supernatural elements seem not only plausible but also completely possible. The banter between the characters both makes you laugh and really lets you get to know them better. I appreciate that they are continuing to grow as individuals, and not just remaining stagnant. The dialogue is fantastic. The variety of different dialects really highlights the fact that this is a global story.
This was a fantastic addition to what is rapidly becoming my new go-to series for the genre. It’s a must read for fantasy & dystopian lovers alike.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
Hollowed Humusara picks up the story of Skylee Porter, a teenage girl who has just survived a deadly encounter with Brinfrost, a fellow magic user who seeks to destroy a world that has just begun to pick itself up from the apocalypse. Having met her enemy face to face, Skylee will have to push her powers to the limit and learn all she can about the mystical world of the Primortus if she is to survive for much longer.
The character development in this book is really terrific, for both the heroes and the villains. More of Skylee's family's past is explored including a look into her father's time as a Primortus. The romantic tension between Skylee and Will is still there, but it's the drama surrounding Chrism and Airon that makes me want to scream at both of them to get their acts together. It's some excellent writing that can evoke that kind of response in a reader. What I liked most is how all the characters, even the seemingly minor ones, are flushed out and not just treated as extras.
The actions scenes are fun to read, just like in the first book. I can imaging the battles in great detail without the author having to write down every little thing. There are plot twists galore which kept me interested and wanting to read just one more page before bed.
Val Richards and J. L. Bond have shared much of their world with us, but there's still so much to discover that's only been hinted at, leaving the reader wanting more. As in, a third book...ASAP!
