Rating: 4.5 STARS
Sadie Larcen and her family are slowly recovering from their life-altering trek to the Tethered World. That is until their aunt arrives clutching a mysterious letter and sporting a black eye. The letter that Aunt Jules shares with the family writhes with sinister implications. A new and menacing enemy has slunk from the shadows and is conspiring to seize the most powerful piece of weaponry in the land: The Flaming Sword of Cherubythe. The sword must—at all costs—be kept from the enemies who lust for its power.
The threat extends to Sadie’s autistic brother Brock. As High King in training, he now resides in the Tethered World, within close proximity to the sword. It’s apparent that drastic measures will be required by all in order to protect what’s most important. Can Sadie once again confront her disabling fear, stare evil in the face, and walk away whole—let alone alive? How can one teenage girl and her family save a sword with the potential to start a world war? Will lines be crossed even as Sadie’s faith is tested? Sadie knows it’s going to take a lot more than strength, grit, and courage to survive.
My life has become a roller coaster with no chance of getting off. And I hate roller coasters.
Sadie is back, along with her family. This book doesn’t suffer second book fill syndrome. It started out at a good pace and kept up with a fast pace. I believe I read this faster than the first book.
The Tethered World is back in trouble. This time not only with the trolls but a new enemy is introduced. We see many of the characters we were introduced to in the first book as well as being introduced to some new characters as well.
Once again, I would love to thank the author for writing a terrific heroine. I love that Sadie isn’t controlled by her feelings. When her, I guess you could call him love-interest, asks if he is misreading her, he asks if she has feelings for him. He’s a GENTLEMAN about it too. She is honest with him. She says she has feelings but she doesn’t want to enter into a relationship with him because she belongs topside and he belongs in the Tethered. Plus once he said his age, I am okay with her being single for the rest of the series.
I have the third book and will try to finish the series by next week.
