A good read. Moves just as quickly as book 1. Not quite as can't put it down as book 1, but still one of the better reads so far this year. Thank you!

Just finished reading "Astra: Synchronicity and Astra: The Reckoning". Both are enjoyable reading with the exceptions that Ms. Eskra needs to learn the difference in "lie and lay" and how to use the two words properly. She also needs to divest herself of the propensity to use large, obscure words where a simple familiar word would suffice.

Enjoyed reading Astra: The Reckoning" very much. At one point in the book I actually found myself cursing aloud at Magnius and my views of him changed a bit after that point. Highly recommend it to others out there to read, although you MUST read Astra: Synchronicity first to be able to follow character dynamics. I enjoyed the unique take on Psions and their abilities.

This is the second book in the Astra trilogy. The story picks up where the last book left off and immediately launches you into the action. The plot is fast-paced and exciting, with many twists and turns. There were some twists in this book that left me breathless with surprise but at the same time made me go "ah ha! that all makes sense now!" I think it's great when an author can throw a twist into a story that is utterly unexpected and yet makes complete sense. It's even better when you didn't realize you were missing a part of the picture until the picture has become complete. It shows great finesse and shows that Eskra's plots are well-designed and her writing absolutely solid.

The characters, who were first introduced in Astra: Synchronicity, become even more real and grow in various ways. No one is static in this book and the characters are clearly being put to the test through this entire book. Each of the main characters has their own story arc that is connected to the main story, yet separate and individual at the same time. And don't think these changes are simple nor easy. There are many "growing pains" through this book and still obviously more to come. The main story arc is not complete and neither are the character arcs.

I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series! I can't wait to see where she takes these characters and this story next.
