Hello all! Hope you’re all doing well
It has been mere days in the world of Eon, where Rune Jenkins, her twin brother Ryker, and their friend Grey have been trapped, fighting for their lives. After discovering the truth of their ancestry, the three are far from home, and far from anything resembling their mundane lives of the past.
While Ryker is still held captive by the eerily beautiful Zio and her goblins, Grey falls into the clutches of Feena, the Fae queen. She begins to drain his soul bit by bit to feed her dark underground garden, and Grey has no hope of escaping on his own.
It is now up to Rune to save Grey, as his precious time slips away inexorably. But the Council has denied her permission to embark on a rescue mission, until she can harness her Venator gifts and prove herself capable of venturing into the Fae queen’s territory. As Rune discovers that promises in Eon are forged with life-or-death consequences, she realizes that she must act quickly, or else be swallowed and Grey along with her by the dangers of Eon.
I reviewed the first book in this series back in March when the world was a lot different. You can read this post here if you’re interested: https://buttercupreview.wordpress.com/2020/03/06/venators-by-devri-walls-ultimate-blog-tour/
I enjoyed the first book in this series and was looking forward to finding out what was going to happen next. This story starts very soon after the first one finishes so with this in mind I think it would definitely be best to read the first book before pursuing this one. I’m not sure how this one stands on its own if you don’t know the characters well and that in itself would put me off (luckily I read the first one!)
The characters are very well thought out and the second book expands on their characteristics in a steady but interesting way. It was great to find out more about the characters I grew to like in the first book. I do wish their pasts were explored a little more but that’s just me – I like to have a complete image of the charcters being portrayed and backstories are a sure but simple way of achieving that. Having said that, the character development meant for me personally this book is stronger than the first one.
I found the general storyline very entertaining and it held my attention well. I think this installment has lodged this series in my head as one to watch!
I’m excited to see what happens next!
