This book took a while for me to get into, as I have loved all of this author's previous books. Once I figured this is different characters from the first book, it made more sense. Aiden wants to rule Scotland and he will do whatever it takes to make this happen, even destroying friends, lovers and foe.
His power of fire consumes him and eventually will destroy him.
This book just felt 'meh' to me. Between the grammatical mistakes and very linear plot (no surprises, no exciting side character motivation) this book was pretty cut and dry.
I feel like it had a small improvement to plot compared to the first novel, but not by much.
I liked how the author didn't stray from difficult topics such as murder and torture - I enjoyed that in a not weird way! But the protagonist? He was just an angsty teenager. I swear, I was waiting for the whole, "It's not a phase, mu ...more
I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley
I haven't read the first book in this series, but from what I understand this is more of a standalone set in the same universe with a small cameo by characters from book one towards the end. At any rate, I never felt confused while reading it and was sucked in right from the beginning. I definitely thought the world-building and magic system was very fun and unique, but what really made this book for me was the characters. I think I can probably ...more
Wait I’m confused do we not get any resolution on the ending of book one? Or is this book going to be a different character, but then in book three this character and Tenn will meet up and everything will come together. Cuz there were still some things that I want answers for 🤷🏼♀🤷🏼♀. ...more
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Unfortunately, I could not get into this book at all. I found the writing to be subpar, the plot to be a bit boring and the constant grammatical errors and ebook formatting issues to be distracting.
Aidan was not a very intriguing and relatable character to me. As much as I tried to like the story since I tend to gravitate towards this genre, it feel flat for me.
Miniseries: The Runebinder Chronicles
This is the second book in the Runebinder chronicles by Alex R. Kahler. I was excited when I received the ARC of this book as I loved the first book in the series, Runebinder. I assumed that this story would be a continuation of the first book, but it wasn't at all.
Though it's set in the same world, Runebreaker follows a different main character named Aiden, and the story takes place in Scotland. I have to admit that I was a tad disappointed as I was looking forward to reading more about Tenn's ...more
