Summary: Things have changed in Reswyt since Sabine last came, and that's not a good thing. The Jager are stuck where they are, and hold on defensively. The Queen's army has not only adopted the use of guns, but the Artifex is behind the creation of more dangerous weapons for the Queen's use. And someone in the ranks of the Queen is able to track Sabine- on Earth. Sabine, Josh, and Dylan need to find the truth before it is too late to save Reswyt- and themselves- from destruction.
What I Liked: To me, Nekhet was different. The style and flow of writing was even better than it was in Reswyt. Nekhet was very long- but the events and scenery of the story fit the length of the book. Mr. Mayer's writing matured even more in Nekhet, his prose articulate yet compact throughout the book. The maturation of the characters progressed immensely. In many stories today, characters remain flat and faultless throughout the book. In Nekhet, readers see heroic qualities and devastating faults in almost all of the dynamic characters. Sabine especially undertakes a character transformation. She is brave, sensible, and intelligent, yet not without her faults. The plot was another part of the book that was satisfying to follow. Mr. Mayer doesn't just create a few fight scenes, wrap things up nicely, and leave an opening for another book to follow. No. He opens up the dream-world and delves into the complexity of story unlike any story I've read.Read more ›
The war in Reswyt rages on in the second installment of the Dreamline series. At the end of the first book, Sabine found the lead box that was meant to house the pendant that allows her to travel to Reswyt. When the pendant is not left in the box, it inhibits sleep. Sabine is finally able to sleep and dream. I don't want to give too much away about her new role in Reswyt, but she manifests as an animal. Dylan also returns to Reswyt as a horse and tries to rally the other horses to fight with the Jager. Sabine has been teaching Josh to use her pendant and how to do magic in Reswyt. There are several new characters in Nekhet and each one plays an important role in the story.
After a tragic death in the Jager camp, they formulate a plan to capture the Queen's Artifex, Moravin. Moravin has been building weapons and guns for the queen. They fear that he is searching for materials to make a larger, more threatening weapon that will destroy the Balance of Reswyt. The plan is to "awaken" him, but his situation on earth has complicated things.
Once again, I am left feeling like a bumbling idiot! I'm still amazed that a book can leave me speechless. I mean seriously, I can't even form a coherent sentence right now. Dave has produced another STUNNING work of art. The characters are extremely well written and you get to see them grow in this book. I wasn't used to Dave's writing style when I read Reswyt, but now I see the beauty in it. It was much easier now that I knew what kind of flow to expect. The story is told from several of the characters vantage points.Read more ›
I love how David creates his characters and brings them all together. His main character Sabine is a very strong and brave person. She really blames herself when things go wrong. She is a great leader and can hold herself against the Queen.
The fighting scenes were even better than the ones in Reswyt. The animals have became even more intelligent and you can tell by all the weapons that they are making. Which makes the fighting scenes more exciting and keeps you glued to the pages. The plot is so great that you just get drawn into the story even more and you can't wait to see what happens next.
You are wondering the whole time will there ever be peace between all the animals and will there ever be balance in the dream world. The story is so great that sometimes you wonder which is the real one and which one is the dream. I'm really hoping that a third one is in the works.
It was so great to meet the old characters again. All the new characters that you meet is just an added bonus to Nekhet. I enjoyed the adventure that I got to go on. Alot of questions that I had after reading Reswyt was answered in Nekhet. When you read the stories you get to find out how the author came up with the names of his books.
I was left not liking the Queen more and more. If you liked Reswyt then you will really love Nekhet even more. So just start reading to find out what is happening in Nekhet and you will learn fast because you won't want to put it down.
