Magic, dragons, griffins..oh my!! This author continues to entertain his readers with fantastical creatures, humerous heros, and of course, the evil villian.
Bakkian Chronicles, Book II will definitely appeal to fans of fantasy.

I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to the third book when it comes out...I'm hoping Sarah will realize that if she can teleport herself like she does objects, and she can move objects without making them dissapear....then she can essentially fly herself, would be really neat. :)

Review by: crpgnut on Aug. 10, 2012 :
I was a little disappointed with book two. In book one we got to experience people from our world discovering their powers and meeting lots of new friends. Book two is basically a rehash of book one, but with a differently named enemy. While Steve and Sarah's powers grew a bit, it was still the same powers and almost completely the same cast. We did learn more about the magic system in book two, but I felt it didn't make up for all the parts that were nearly the same.

Another huge missing element was the lack of story connecting the time between visits. No explanation about what Steve and Sarah are doing for income on Earth, a hard to accept romance between a medieval soldier and a modern woman, little said about the vast differences between living in the US and Lentari, etc.

The free book was much better than the cheap book, but it was still an okay story. Perhaps because the author wants to target a young audience, the story didn't have the depth that I, as an adult reader, would expect.

The only thing wrong with having read the first two books is having to wait for book three. I thoroughly enjoyed both books, reading late into the night until I finished. Will definitely be watching for the next one.

Bakkian Chronicles, Book II - Insurrection by Jeffrey Poole is the second book taking place in the world of Lentari. When Steve gets a message from the world of Lentari he and Sarah know something is drastically wrong. The Queen has been kidnapped! They decide to head back to lend their powerful jhorun's to the chase. Leaving Mikal with Sarah's sister Annie and Trisan, his bodyguard from Lentari they hop through the portal and return to the magical land.

The action in this book picks up much faster than it did in the first of the series. Since almost of the characters have been introduced you are dumped straight into an exciting chase as Steve and Sarah try to stop the kidnappers before they reach the border. The second in the series keeps all the strengths of the first and Jeffrey has grown a bit as a writer leading to a more polished book.

This book appeals to the same audience as book I although I believe there was a little bit more profanity this time. No f-bombs or anything just a few more swear words used. I am going to be looking forward to the third book in the series with a great deal of interest. Jeffrey has created a truly wonderful world populated with interesting and believable characters. If you have even the smallest interest in fantasy pick up the first book in the series and you will get sucked in.
