Second, I enjoyed the characters very much, even the ones I love to hate! And we got to learn a good deal more about the characters in this second book of the series.
Thirdly, I totally appreciate knowing what’s going on the minds of the characters, because then I know things that even the characters themselves don’t know about each other! There were a few moments where some of the inner monologues felt a little redundant to me, but at least you really knew where the characters stood.
This book ends on some big cliffhangers which are frankly, really bothering me. But it’s good... that’s the author’s job, but I want to know what’s going to happen!!! So if you struggle with cliffhangers you may want to read right before the third book comes out, not several months before 😐
All in all, wonderful read! I was so intrigued by the last several chapters that I read them while my toddler crawled all over me and didn’t care. 😉
I know a lot of people like the political intricacy type plots. I typically I do not, but I have to say it grew on me towards the end. Also, there are a lot of characters to keep track of, aside from the main ones. R.J. Metcalf has included a register to make it easier to look up if you find yourself wondering who is who.
There is more of the forbidden romance between Jade and her bodyguard, which now has the possibility of going wrong in several different ways and I cannot wait to find out where it ends.
I believe this second installment of Stones of Terrene was better than the first one. It is more fast-paced with lots of twists and turns. The world building continues as we discover more of the feared and hated Elph, and what is at stake if they succeed in completing their mission.
I really enjoyed this second book and the way the characters are developing. I look forward (impatiently) to discovering what becomes of them and whether Ben finds what he has been searching for.
It took me about 50 pages to get super sucked into the story but once I hit that point I was hooked. If you want to read this you really need to pick up Renegade Skyfarer first. This is a series enjoyed best if you read the books in order.
There are some points where the story is a little slow, and drags, but that never lasts for more than a few pages and that might just be my personal taste because this is not a genre I read as often as others.
There are also a lot of characters to try to keep track of but there is a handy list in the back of the book and you should be fine if you can follow other books by Tolkien and those like him.
Violence: Those sensitive to violence may be a little cautious with this book. I think the, sometimes rough, fight scenes added to the story greatly but I could see where those who disliked them would get a little squeamish but it is not too bad. Appropriate for most teens.
Sexual Themes: A brothel is mentioned and a character is described as running several. There is mention of a sexual assault. Mentions of sex, paramours, rape but no sex scenes. It is done pretty clean and tastefully.
The characters quickly suck you in and have you rooting for them. Each storyline gripped me so tightly I was disappointed when I chapter would switch to someone else until I remembered what was going on in their story and I needed to know what would happen next.
There is a constant state of mystery with the plot but enough questions are answered along the way you do not get frustrated. The perfect balance of suspense and relief.
Once you get to the end you’ll wish Traitor’s Crown was coming out sooner so you could find out what is going to happen next.
I am giving the story 4 stars. if you could do half stars I might give it a 3.5. The book is a really good read. Not perfect but very good for an author’s first series and you should definitely give R J Metcalf a chance if you like Sci-fi/fantasy books.
I was given an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
