Whelp, that's it folks. I'm sunk. Buying book three...uhh...now!! This is book 2 of the River of Time series by Lisa Bergren. (Still haven't figured out the title...but who cares?!)
The sequel was packed with just as much danger and intrigue as the previous book, and actually drew me in even more! By now, I had a pretty solid grip on the senior MCs and was quickly adjusting to the juniors. Truly, I think I enjoyed this ride more than the first, but perhaps just because everything is already set in motion and I have a solid footing in the plot, the characters, and the world. I'm already dying for book 3. Of course, it doesn't help that I thought I had more chapters to read and then, nope fooled ya...extras. I swear, I don't think I've ever been more disappointed to see the extra content, which I normally love.
Just as before, the book was well-written (and nothing pulled me out of the groove this time. I didn't see any boo-boos at all), the characters positively charming (and some really sweet minor characters that have me hoping against hope that I'll see again!), the world fan-freaking-tastic (makes me want to go there! I loved the little bit of Italy I've seen and I definitely want more!), and the plot as engrossing as ever before. I'm hanging on a thread here! Two-day shipping better hurry up!
Minor violence, tactfully handled. Super-sweet romance, nothing worse than a few stolen kisses (medieval peeps were pretty chill XD). And no swearing. There was a scene where some...lustful implications were made, but it was brief and not detailed in any way whatsoever, again, very tactfully handled.
