Not too long ago I reviewed the first part of this series, and not too long before that I reviewed the original book as an entire piece. Today, thanks to the lovely folks at iRead Book Tours, I get to review the second book in the serialized version.
Honestly, this section of the book, known here as Hunter, contains some of my favorite parts of the whole story, specifically how this book ends, where you finally see all the appropriate pieces finally falling together, as they well should by this point in a story, and showing that there might be some hope, albeit small, for the titular duo, as well as those who are working in their interests.
In book 2, Melia brings this story into its element. Action really takes a forefront, making the more political aspects of the tale take something of a backseat. We get to learn more about Guy and how he just so happens to be as awesome as he is, while also learning a lot more about the mysterious Valvanchi family, a group that even after reading the whole tale, I can’t help but want to know more about.
All in all, book 2 is really the meat of this story, the selection where I really believe the Empire series takes off and shows it’s power. And of course, if you’re going to make it through book two, you’re going to need to read book three….
