"Boyce has killer talent and a writing voice that rivals any New York Times megastar. The Grimoire Saga, quite simply, is awesome." --Nikki Jefford, author of the Spellbound Trilogy
From the Author
The Grimoire Saga has been a work in progress since 2006, and is by no means small. After you finish the book, you can continue your journey into Ourea with the tons of extras I offer on the book's website, The Grimoire Online (GrimoireSaga.com).

~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review
The flow from the first book into this second book is totally seamless. I wish I had been able to start it sooner. It really is like still reading the first book and since I'm reading on my tablet, I don't even have to physically grab the second book. I love technology. I love good authors even more, and Ms. Boyce is wonderful!
When I completed Lichgates, I went to Kindle Books on Amazon and bought the three books that complete the series. No hesitation, I knew I was going to love the whole thing. Halfway through and I'm still loving it! I chose it for the COYER Can You Read A Series In A Month Challenge because I knew I'd enjoy it and fly right through it!
Kara and Braedon have had a rough time of it in Ourea. Neither of them is making a lot of friends it seems. The Bloods are all in favor of getting some use out of them and getting rid of them.
The Bloods are having a rough time, too, though. Well, at least Aislynn is. Things just aren't going her way anymore. She thought she had control, but like all such things in Ourea, things aren't what they seem. No one is who they seem to be. Especially those who can take on another's form. And too many beings in Ourea have revenge in mind.
Braedon and his father have a "chat" and there's just too much communication going on there. But Braedon gets one important bit to take away that changes things completely. Whereas the first Vagabond isn't communicating with Kara enough. If she knew more, maybe she wouldn't be making quite so many social and political faux pas.
Gavin isn't getting along with anyone. He's definitely on a power trip and Richard and Twin are keeping low profiles. A trip to the Vagabond's Village seems like a good idea to them.
Kara learns something about herself in this book that changes everything for her and the way others will deal with her in the future. She has a hard time accepting it. So do some others. Braedon's decision turns on a blade, literally.
I hope you're keeping up with your reading. I'm already halfway through book #3, Heritage.
For those readers who have read Lichgates already, they know how talented Boyce is in creating the world of Ourea. For those who don't know, let me tell you. Boyce's world-building skills haven't diminished since book one. They may even have gotten better. Ourea, all of its kingdoms, hidden nooks and crannies, the glimpses of the real world that the reader gets, they all show such beauty while having constant danger everywhere. Ourea is a dangerous place. It goes with the territory. Despite the danger it's a place I'd love to visit if it were to be real.
What I also enjoyed were the new characters in Treason. All the old favorites from Lichgates are back as well, don't worry about missing them. They come back even better this time! The complexities of all S.M.'s characters allow for plot twists, extensive and unfolding histories, hope and fear for the future. Each character has an agenda and each character influences others whether they know it or not.
It's this complex world and character system that makes Treason, and The Grimoire Trilogy in general, what it really is. It's an epic movie unfolding before the reader's eyes. I don't know if I was really reading the words on a page, as much as I was watching vivid images play in my head. I couldn't not turn the page even when a chapter was over. I wanted to keep reading in order to find out what was in store for Kara, Braeden, and the rest of my favorite characters (especially the adorable fur-ball Flick).
I could go on for hours pointing out what I loved about this book. I also am confident in saying I have nothing negative to say...nothing at all...about this book. There are plot twists galore. There's also one MAJOR twist that even after reading it a few times to make sure I read it correctly I still didn't see coming. I can't believe it really. It was so seamlessly and stealthily thrown in there, it was like "*POW* I'm a ninja." If I had the space to do so, I would have been flipping and bouncing off the walls of my room. No lie.
I only have one last thing to say. Boyce, please for the love of all things bookily holy...please go write Heritage. I NEED to complete my journey through Ourea with Kara!!!!!
