The Paladins took me places I just didn't see coming. This fast-paced sequel to The Artisans features a dangerous trip through the Void, a between-worlds place filled with ghosts, monsters, nightmares, and truly horrific scenarios. The characters remain ground, real, and relatable. The dialogue is witty and engaging. My favorite part about these books is that the author doesn't shy away from the horror. This book is downright scary in places. It's good scary, bravery-inducing scary. I love seeing horrific situations treated as such in young adult novels because life can be scary and terror exists. The Paladins told us plainly: it’s okay to be afraid but that doesn’t have to mean you stop fighting. The horror was skillfully balanced in a beautiful world with wonderful characters through gorgeous writing. I'm looking forward to grabbing more of Julie Reece's work.

What a compelling read! This second installment in The Artisans duology finds our heroes, Raven, Gideon, and Cole, on a quest to save a girl trapped in the Void. Along the way they go through some trippy, scary, and violent experiences. (I wish I could use the monkey covering his eyes emoji right now.) :D

Anyway, the lovely writing and intense pace made this book a page-turner that I would have finished in less time had I not been traveling. The ending brought everything together nicely with all romantic entanglements taken care of. And so, of course, I was left with a smile on my face. Ah, Cole!

Great read!

I really enjoyed The Artisans, so even though it ended with a Happily Ever After, I was still excited to find out that there was going to be a sequel! I definitely still had a few questions left over, and even more about what would happen moving forward. The Paladins was a great continuation of Raven, Gideon, and Cole's story and I'm so glad I got the chance to read it!

While The Artisans is pretty obviously a new take on the classic "Beauty and the Beast" story, The Paladins is quite a bit different. I felt like there were several fairy tales and myths incorporated in this book, and I actually thought that was much more exciting than just retelling one specific story. There's a little Rapunzel, a little generic damsel in distress, and a lot of Greek mythology (especially centering around Pan and the Labyrinth). For me, everything meshed together well and it didn't feel like Reece was trying to do too much. I'm sure there were references to things that I didn't catch because I wasn't familiar with certain elements of the stories, but I did enjoy all of the things I did recognize. I think this would still be a fun read for someone who isn't familiar with much of the mythology or anything, because Reece establishes the rules of the world in her own way so that things still feel fresh and new.

The Paladins is written from Gideon, Cole, and Raven's perspectives, and I was so glad to be able to see what the boys were thinking. Don't get me wrong, I loved being in Raven's head for The Artisans, but I don't think this book would have been anywhere near as good if we had only seen things from Raven. The fresh viewpoints really added a depth to this story that helped move events along at a great pace, especially when everyone was split up.

Wow! And I thought The Artisan was good!! The Paladins was fantastic! The author jumped into excitement, eerie twists, dynamic relationships, anticipation and lots of energy from the get go. Its hard to describe, but it touched multiple aspects of my emotions/senses- happy, scared, intrigue, suspense, fright, love, hate, anxiety, creeped out etc. It has it all and it's a must read! I love this book and look forward to more!

Wow! I was totally blown away by this one. The second book was even better than the first. The adventure was epic. If you have ever seen the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie (please tell me you have!) you will LOVE this book. It was full of magic, mysteriousness, and puzzlement. This book was inventive, fun, and whimsical. This book had some darker moments than the first with a creep factor with cringe worthy moments. ! I loved the first book so much but this one just blew me away. It was impossible to put this book down, even for a second. Every couple pages something captivating would draw me in. It was brilliant, hilarious, and maybe even one of the most enjoyable books I have read this year.

In this book we get to know Cole quite a bit more. I absolutely loved his character. To be truthful, I loved all the characters. They are impossible not to fall in love with. I really enjoyed how this book alternated between three different narrators. The chapters switched between Cole, Gideon, and Raven. It flowed perfectly and it was written in a way that was never once confusing as to who was telling the story.

The world building was fantastic. I felt like the story had come alive while I was reading. Everything going on around me just vanished away. Nothing could distract from my reading. I could go on and on and on about this book but I don't want to give any of the fantastic surprises this book has in store for you. Trust me and pick up this book. If you want a good escape from reality this one is so worth it. You could easily pick up this book and not be confused if you didn't read the first one. I wouldn't recommend missing out on the first one though. Both stories had completely different things going on and they are both worth reading.

The story ended perfectly.
