Publisher's Summary

Kara Magari ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea and found the Grimoire: a powerful artifact filled with secrets. To protect the one person she has left, she strikes a deal that compromises everything she believes in...and things don't go as planned.

Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who - and what - he is. He has to face the facts. He's a prince. He's a murderer. He's a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he's out for blood.

To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.

    Story
    "Quite an adventure"
    What made the experience of listening to Treason the most enjoyable?

    The story was quite an adventure. You never knew who you could trust and who would stab you in the back, definitely kept you guessing. The narrator had such a smooth and expressive voice. How she made all the different voices distinctive, was quite expressive.


    What other book might you compare Treason to and why?

    I would compare the Grimoire Saga with the Harry Potter series. So many different creatures and magic, with a young one being trained in all their power. With an evil force after him.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent series, with so many twists and turns that kept you guessing until the end. The surprises were unending. With a great narrator and amazing story was really enjoyable to experience.

    "Can't wait for the next book."

    This is a truly enjoyable story. Complex, yet easy to follow with rich characters. The voice narration is astounding with so many rich accents. Kudos to Kara Kovacich Stewart. Never have I enjoyed narration so much. I highly recommend this audio book.

    Story
    "Review: Treason, by S.M. Boyce"

    I don’t think I’ve had as great of a reaction to any book as I have this one; well not since I read Lichgates. S.M. Boyce comes back with book two of the Grimoire saga, and comes back STRONG! I honestly didn’t think Lichgates could be topped on my all-time favorites list. Treason surpassed it with flying colors.

    For those readers who have read Lichgates already, they know how talented Boyce is in creating the world of Ourea. For those who don’t know, let me tell you. Boyce’s world-building skills haven’t diminished since book one. They may even have gotten better. Ourea, all of its kingdoms, hidden nooks and crannies, the glimpses of the real world that the reader gets, they all show such beauty while having constant danger everywhere. Ourea is a dangerous place. It goes with the territory. Despite the danger it’s a place I’d love to visit if it were to be real.

    What I also enjoyed were the new characters in Treason. All the old favorites from Lichgates are back as well, don’t worry about missing them. They come back even better this time! The complexities of all S.M.’s characters allow for plot twists, extensive and unfolding histories, hope and fear for the future. Each character has an agenda and each character influences others whether they know it or not.

    It’s this complex world and character system that makes Treason, and The Grimoire Saga in general, what it really is. It’s an epic movie unfolding before the reader’s eyes. I don’t know if I was really reading the words on a page, as much as I was watching vivid images play in my head. I couldn’t not turn the page even when a chapter was over. I wanted to keep reading in order to find out what was in store for Kara, Braeden, and the rest of my favorite characters (especially the adorable fur-ball Flick).

    I could go on for hours pointing out what I loved about this book. I also am confident in saying I have nothing negative to say…nothing at all…about this book. There are plot twists galore. There’s also one MAJOR twist that even after reading it a few times to make sure I read it correctly I still didn’t see coming. I can’t believe it really. It was so seamlessly and stealthily thrown in there, it was like “*POW* I’m a ninja.” If I had the space to do so, I would have been flipping and bouncing off the walls of my room. No lie.

    "Even better than the first book!"

    In this second book, Kara has come to terms with the fact that she's the Vagabond and she's decided to jump into her task of uniting the people of Ourea wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, not everyone in Ourea is on board. Most people simply want to use Kara, and the betrayals in this book just keep coming. To make things more complicated, she's falling in love with Braeden, and these feeling can be used against her. Even the original Vagabond isn't above threatening Braeden and he does everything he can to keep Kara and Braeden apart. The stakes are way higher in this second installment of the series, and both Kara and Braeden are put through some pretty horrible things. The pacing is fantastic in this book, and I often found myself wanting to listen just a little bit extra so that I could find out what was going to happen next. I loved the characters in the first book, but Braeden captured my heart even more in this second installment. And then there's Kara - I love that every time I thought there was going to be a cliché plot point or Kara was going to agree to something way out of character, Boyce surprised me. Kara is intelligent and strong-willed, but that doesn't mean she never makes a mistake - she falls prey to trusting people occasionally who she shouldn't and she gave into demands once or twice - but it all felt very within her character. Toward the end of the book, there's a major twist that I didn't see coming at all - it completely changes a LOT of things! Loved this book - 5/5 Stars.

    NARRATION: I thought that Kara Kovacich Stewart did a fantastic job with the narration of these books. I especially loved her accents for many of the Oureans.

    "what a whirlwind of a story"
    Any additional comments?

    Book 2 is quite entertaining. It's full of action, and there's continually new things to learn about Ourea.

    It was great to get to know Stone, Cedric, and Deidre better. They are really great, complex characters that helped me to stay engaged in the story.

    In this installment, however, there were quite a few times where I felt the alternate world/fantasy elements were abused a little bit. Does this character need a mount? Oh! Lets add a new species we haven't talked about yet and have it appear magically at just the right moment!! I don't think I minded as much in book 1, because we were still getting to know the world... but every time something like this happened (which did feel pretty frequent) I cared just a little less about the book.

    The other thing that irked me a bit was that there were some pretty simple could-be solutions to some of the problems presented and there wasn't any explanation given as to why it couldn't happen like that. It made some of the main characters feel dumb to me.

    I really enjoyed the narration. Whenever I read a first book and then listen to a second, I'm either thrilled with how much the narration adds to the story or disappointed that it adds almost nothing. In this instance, it was quite the former. There were a variety of accents for the many characters and their personalities really were brought to life in this installment. She did a much better job than my imagination did the first time around!!!

    I received this book free for review.

    "WOW!"

    I am typically not a fan of books like the Grimoire Sagas. I decided to do the audio books to help me read them. I am so very happy with my decision! Listening to Kara Kovacich Stewart read these novels is such a delight! Kara has a way of bringing the characters to life and the different voices Kara uses is fabulous! I cannot wait to hear the next book!
