Blanchard does such a great job of placing and weaving sub-plots together that you will find yourself drawn in but not sure who to root for. Jump on and ride along as friend turns against friend and kingdoms rise and fall, but beware Blanchard delights in making you fall in love with a character just so she can snatch them out of your heart. Don't worry, she'll make more for you.
Meanwhile, the kingdoms are at war. The tensions between Jechoram and Cuskelom have risen too far, and now it's technology versus magic in the battle of a lifetime. Countess Veddra is still occupying the nation of Nirrorm, and it seems she has bigger, loftier goals in mind. And Vixen has gotten herself involved with a plot which may restore the very humanity of some non-citizens of Jechoram...
As tensions come to a boil, an epic battle looms on the horizon.
As with the last book, I was much more entranced by the events that took place in Jechoram than the rest of the continent. The storyline with the guardians could have been an entire book, in its own right. It's brilliant: so creatively crafted and woven into the larger plot, it let the reader ponder what it truly is to be human. This plot line borders on science-fantasy, a growing genre which combines technology and fantasy into one brilliant story.
There are so many different plots going on at once, it might get tricky to keep track of! But this means every reader will find a story they like - or many - and fall in love with the characters. But here's a fair warning - don't get too attached. It's a war, after all, and wars have fatalities. So you have been warned!
I found that Lorrek was a bit of a... jerk, to put it mildly, without his memories. I mean, it's understandable, seeing as how he can't remember who's friend or foe, who he can trust and who needs to be killed. But the result was that he wasn't as relatable as he was in the first novel. No matter, because with everyone else, there's so many other characters to relate to. I still hold Vixen as being one of the best female assassins I've ever read, and I desperately need to know what happens to her next.
The worldbuilding in this series remains phenomenal. The carefully crafted political tension between kingdoms, making the reader keenly aware of the motivations of their respective leaders, is just further evidence of the author's skill at creating a complex narrative. The author's strength really lies in the creation of these realms.
It is an exciting sequel, so if you like Someday I'll be Redeemed, you'll love I Still Have a Soul. It's a must read for fans of... Vixen! The ending leaves me excited for more, as I can't wait to see what direction the series will go.
