Review by: Derek Knight on Oct. 11, 2013 :
I thoroughly enjoyed this imaginative sequel to Her Unwelcome Inheritance (I would strongly recommend reading that book first). The characters develop in interesting ways and Wootton continues to balance character and story development with good action and intrigue. This was a good read. I'm looking forward to more!

Check your mailbox for glyphs, look under your pillow for slit envelopes, construct some clever dream sequences, and get ready to counteract magic with some mischief―because the second book in the Fayborn series is here! There are characters we are getting to know, characters we are beginning to like, and characters we know we detest. And then there are the unexpected turns and plot twists. A highly satisfying read!

Review by: Lindsey Smith on Sep. 26, 2013 :
In J. Aleksandr Wooten's second installment of the Fayborn books, Petra continues in her journey from disbelief to acceptance of who she is and her unique role in Faerie's destiny. As soon as you begin reading, you won't want to stop. Exciting plot twists and creative character development capture your attention, and you find yourself fully immersed in the characters' lives. Mr. Wooten's artistry as a writer is especially amplified in this book, as he has molded his voice and style into something truly special. If you liked Her Unwelcome Inheritance, you're going to love The Eighth Square.

Review by: preludetorain on Sep. 25, 2013 :
As an avid reader, I reserve a special appreciation for books that make me want to stay up and keep reading, no matter how tired I am or how late it is. This, the second installment in the Fayborn trilogy, is one of these. The continuing narrative of Petra's adventures navigating a world she never knew existed, and still isn't quite sure whether to fully believe in, is engrossing, imaginative, whimsical, highly entertaining, and appropriately mind-boggling. The book's nightmare sequence in particular is a stand-out. The Eighth Square is a must-read!
