Winter's Storm: Retribution by Karen Luellen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the second book in a fantasy series novel. Appropriate for all ages.
Meg was the star of the first book, "Winter's Awakening." In this book, "Winter's Storm," Meg's brothers, Alik and Evan are given a chance to shine.
"Through their words and actions the boys take life and the scenes come alive as they are forced to challenge a greater threat than the group met in the first novel, only this time, without the help of Meg. In this book we also meet Creed a new and interesting metahuman torn between what he has been taught and what he knows is right. Along with the tension of being stalked by the most relentless hunters in the world, we are left wondering which side Creed will be on when the final battle comes.
This story begins not to far from where we left off in the first book. Again I was sucked into this story from the first page. We are introduced to a new character, Creed, who is connected to someone from the first book who had an encounter with Meg.
Although he’s new, I sympathized with him from the beginning and rooted for him throughout almost feeling like I was betraying Cole in a way. You’ll just have to read the story to understand why.
The story didn’t follow any predictable patterns for the most part. In fact, I was so engrossed with the story, I wasn’t even trying to figure out where things were headed. I just let Karen Luellen lead me wherever she wanted to take me.
I love a good cliffhanger, but having been able to read the first two books back to back, I must say I am in the dumps not being able to move on. Nevertheless, I don’t regret reading and not waiting. The third book can’t be released soon enough.
Great job! Again I recommend to readers of all ages.
