Of all the books in the Illyon Chronicles, this was my favorite by far!
In this new adventure, Jace is not only struggling with his past and identity as a half-ryrik, but the condition of his soul. His friends, including Kyrin and Rayad, want to help him, but Jace drifts further and further away in the darkness of guilt and shame. Then, while on a mission to investigate the emporer's plans for Samara, they learn a shocking discovery that changes Jace's life. (And that's just the tip of the iceberg!)
Soon, the adventure moves to the land of Samara, where "the battle in Jace's heart" and that for the freedom of the Samarians are about to rage on. Will Daican succeed? Will Jace finally turn to the One who is calling out to him?
I could go on about this book, but I don't want to spoil it! Therefore, I'll say that this book was both exciting and beautiful at the same time. Once more, Jaye L. Knight has woven faith, and the truth of God's eternal love in fantasy! There were scenes when I cringed, gasped, laughed, and nearly cried. One particular scene (I won't spoil it!) reminds me of a song, "This is How Love Wins" by Stephen Curtis Chapman. If you'd heard the song, you might figure it out when you get to the particular scene.
Overall, this was an amazing adventure worth waiting for and reading over and over again! Thanks, Jaye, for hanging in there through the craziness of an author's world and allowing God to help you through it!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader's Copy of this book!
Anyway. I shouldn't have worried. I really enjoyed this installment. There was some major plot development and quite a few "finally!!" moments. *cough-Jayrin-cough*
The redemption arc was good, but it did feel a little rush and kind of pushed into the story. But Jaye did a great job with it and I might have actually teared up a little with all the events surrounding it. Jace's struggles were a bit more "real" in this book compared to Book 1 and that really packed an extra punch especially in the second half. There was a lot of tension, especially in the second half. I loved all the new characters that were introduced. And I loved how we got to see some character development for Liam. He and Trev need more "screen" time, please!! :)
So many great things happened in this book. A ton of plot moving and, as always, I'm really looking forward to the next book.
