The adventure continues. Gabrielle now questions her decisions. She didn’t think that there would be consequences that would touch too close to home.

What I liked –

Gabrielle is older once again. She gets to talk about her journey with Morrigan since the rules had changed. She’s also less held together and acts more like the child that she is. She lets two humans know about the gods and they get swarmed by evil creatures. She also gets to kill a man…not a monster like she got skilled at killing them. It was bound to happen. This story is more dark. So get ready for blood….and gruesome scenes.

Less typos than the previous book!

Nice choice of time in history.

I recommend to young adults who like paranormal fantasy, adventure, confused characters, and the past.

The adventure continues. Gabrielle chose to stay on the adventure and leaving her life with her mother behind. I don’t know if I would be able to do if I were in her place. Would I be able to leave my family to save souls? It makes me questions the decisions that are put before us and if we make the right choices.

 

What I liked –

I liked that Gabrielle was in an older girl’s body for this one. Since, Gabrielle chose to help Alexandra, it’s only natural for her to grow up along the way, though we were reminded at times that she was still a 13 year old young girl. Again, compliments to the author. Well Done!

Also, it was nice that Gabrielle was able to catch herself and not talk about her mission. It must have been really hard!

However, there were a couple of typos that made it confusing to read in one part of the novel.

I wonder how Zachary chose the people in history for this one? Intentional or spontaneous? ^_^

I recommend to young adults who like paranormal fantasy, adventure, and scary red eyes.

This is some great writing. At first, I wasn’t sure what to think. It was a bit confusing, the change, but the ending of the book brought things to light.

Gabrielle is a great character. She’s young and gets to see her own innocence wither away with her adventure. At first, I thought that the books fell under the middle grade genre but as those clicks kept increasing, I decided that it’s more for young adults though Gabrielle is only 13. I guess, I didn’t read the YA Paranormal Fantasy part of the title. 😉 I chose to read it because a lot of my fellow bloggers read and the cover looked interesting. 

What I liked –

I liked the emotions that Gabrielle felt. Zachary did a good job with it. He also introduced the characters in in interesting ways. Also, what’s impressive is that Zachary wasn’t scared to hurt his characters. Some authors are afraid of having their characters go through pain and hurt the smaller roles. Well done!

I recommend to young adults who like paranormal fantasy, adventure, and magical objects.
