Pros: This is book 2 of the Red King Trilogy. I recommend reading book 1 first before starting on this one, and please do! This is a touching tale of magic, family, and love where Abby, Rory, and Finlay travel across Scotland solving magical puzzles and running from danger. It’s very interesting the way the magic plays out that Rory manipulates with his sword and I’m dying to find out why Mallena called Abby a Manta. Perhaps we’ll get to find out in book 3!
Cons: Just some very small ones. At the very beginning, Abby and Rory say each other’s names in almost every sentence, which seemed a little weird. Also, giggling was mentioned a lot, which sometimes stole from the gravity of some situations.
Please pick up book 1 if you’re a young adult fantasy fan. I guarantee you’ll be picking up the second one in no time flat!
