- The Armor of Light: Book 2 of The Wolfchild Saga
on Oct. 02, 2011
Karen Hoover has done a fantastic job of packing so much into this story, but it’s done in such a way that you just can’t stop reading. This is one of those un-put-down-able books that you keep thinking about for days after you finish it. I don’t know if I’ve said it before, but Karen has such a poetic, beautiful way with words. She draws you in until you love all the characters (even the bad guys), the beautiful world in which they live, the magic…oh, the magic. It’s just incredible.
You can’t help but identify with Ember, who has such a responsibility on her shoulders, who has endured such loss and confusion and heartache, and who is for the first time experiencing romantic feelings toward DeMunth, her protector. And Kayla, with her love for Brant, and her confusion over another man who is vying for her heart—love this dynamic. The romantic aspects just heighten the stakes in the story.
- The Key of Kilenya
on Oct. 02, 2011
When I was first asked to review The Key of Kilenya, I believed it a young adult story that was as much romance as adventure. To my delighted surprise, I realized that it is actually more of a middle grade adventure story which is appropriate for fans of books like Fablehaven and the Far World series. This is a good thing, IMO, because there just aren’t nearly enough fun adventure stories available for kids of this age. (And by this age, I mean too old for kid books, but not quite into dark, heavy YA that is so prominent in the market lately. Mainly the 10-14 age group.) And FYI, even though it contains a girl / boy relationship, it's not really a romance (a relief to my MG reader son).
It’s clean, well written, and packed with adventure in a way that makes the chapters fly by until you realize you’re almost at the end. And then you’re sad to realize the adventure is over, and relieved to discover it's the first of a series so there will be more adventures to come.
