THAT was one hell of a plot twist at the end. Can I briefly gloat and say that I knew somehow the boy was connected to (SPOILER!)?

Anyway, the point is - yet again, Andrijeski excels at the world building, writing, and characters. Great pacing, wonderful tension, high-stakes, and incredible complxity. The relationship between Allie and Revik is crazy - crazy well-done. I'm not sure how she's able to create that much tension, that much misunderstanding as human and seer culture collide (badly, I might add), and not alienate her readers. I'm hooked. Enthralled.

Overall I enjoyed the series of books, that being said....I have one very large issue and that would be pacing, the author will be humming along and you will extremely engrossed in what is happening when, she changes to a completely different story line and all of your forward momentum just stops and I mean it stops because she is suddenly going on and on about what is in side someone's head and your wondering at this point why do I care......further she can spend 5-10 pages describing what the characters are seeing and at some point you wish she would just get on with it, I found myself skimming whole pages maybe reading a sentence here one there just to get to a point where there is some forward momentum. Another problem I found that was less bothersome was editing, there are numerous mistakes. Finally, the main love interest for Allie, well you really just want to kick his ass....a lot. I found myself actually screaming at the book. So it's a good story found the premise good with some interesting characters but be prepared to be frustrated.

I am so into this story line I find it hard to put these books down. I am so happy I am late getting into these books and I have many more ahead to read because I can't put it down. The only down side I had to this book was that I had a hard time keeping track of some of the characters, and sometimes the same characters had different names.. also the readers point of view switches time to time so it's hard to follow that as well. I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book.

Shield. Allie's War, Book Two. JC Andrijeski
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Many years ago, spurred by the you too can be a writer ads I gave it a try. They lied, I can't write! Even I was bored by what I produced, rejection letters came as no surprise, so I've long admired those who Can write. I accept my brain Can't :)Most writers pull a story we love to read out of their imagination, sparked maybe by something they've heard or read. Then there's a special breed of writers, the fantasy ones, who can produce such a riveting and imaginative world that's nothing like the one we know. JC has done all that and more to produce a fascinating series that's kept me, a non sci fi reader, gripped in it's clutches
I enjoyed book one, though struggled to get my head around some of the complexities, read the Allie's early years novella that's currently free on Amazon, and that helped me to get things a bit more into context. Even though I was struggling with the world setting, and the way people were more than they seemed I was still transfixed, hooked, unable to let go of the developing romance between Allie and Revik. I love them both and yet they seem to be so full of misunderstandings, the way Revik's world works is so different to Allie's. For example - thinking with human concepts she caused a huge problem inadvertently in book one, when she thought she was simply offering the human gesture of letting Kat see Revik after he'd been injured, thinking they were friends and he'd want to see her, and yet in Seer terms it was something totally different and she was offering something very sexual.

Incredibly, this book is even better than the first one. I like how Allie gets right down to business when it is time for her to get some answers from Revik about their relationship. It is important, because she didn't insist on being given the necessary seer cultural information in the first book, and it would have seemed false if she hadn't finally asked for clear answers to her questions. This book dealt a lot with the relationship between Allie and Revik, which I really enjoyed. An unexpected but believable twist at the end will continue the tension between them, which almost seems unbearable because I am so invested in the characters. Kudos to the author for skillfull storytelling. Very rewarding~can't wait to read number three. This series is one of my better kindle finds!

Shield: Allie's War did not disappoint. The breakneck pace of the action kept me finding extra time to read and staying up later than I needed to. The main character, Allie, is gradually learning about her background, her strengths and her place in the Seer culture. Unfortunately, she doesn't ask the right questions and continues to cut off opportunities to learn more to her detriment. The cultural conflict between humans and seers is more complicated than ever and when one problem is solved, two more become prominent. Just when you think you can predict who is a "good guy" and what will happen next, a new development adds a twist. I am looking forward to the rest of the series to find out what happens to these characters who have worked their way into my heart.
