Reviews of Eidolon by Grace Draven

Anna Lyall reviewed on June 24, 2018

I just realized that I have neglected to write a review for this book! (This may have something to do with finishing it during the wee hours of the morning away from my computer...). I think I may have loved this better than "Radiance," and I did go back and re-read "Radiance" almost immediately after finishing this its sequel (I purchased the first through Kobo).
Unlike the first tale which follows one story line, this tale follows two parallel stories. The intensity of the relationship development was gut wrenching and very believable given the stress and strain our main hero and heroine were under. The subtle political intrigue was handled quite nicely and Ms. Draven takes a very sober look on the realities of the pressures, responsibilities, and demands of cross cultural relationships and neither sugar coats nor idealizes them.
While the first novel ended on a cliff hanger, this novel ends with the feeling that the story is "finished." But I hope that we see some more of Brishen and Ildiko, as well as some of the supporting characters (perhaps as heroes / heroines of their own stories?), in a future book or two.

Loved it! Beautifully written, unforgettable characters, emotional & suspenseful. I admit that I shed a tear (or two) reading this. So beautifully told and touching.

This is the perfect sequel to Radiance. Grace is a refreshing author to read and manages to write excellent fantasy whilst avoiding the common plot ruts that some fantasy storys end up following.

Brilliant. I look forward to reading more of her books.

It's a Grace Draven - do I need to write more? Don't start with this one if you haven't read "Radiance" but if you already love that one you'll adore this book too.
Buy - read - enjoy.
