5.0 out of 5 starsBook 2 in the Pharim War series was exciting!

Veilspeaker by Gama Ray Martinez was definitely a book that kept me wanting to listen (I did the audio). I love fantasy books with magic and this one follows suit from the first one in the series, Shadowguard. We get to see more from Jez and Osmond, and learn more about the royal court. These two kids definitely don't fit in at court, yet they seem to have way more street smarts than many of those there (kind of a similar thing like in Harry Potter). There were multiple twists in this book. I got frustrated with some of the adult characters for being so stubborn (although that's totally how we adults are sometimes). All in all, I think Gama Ray Martinez did a great job keeping the suspense going from beginning to end. I can't wait to see what else he does in the series. And, I hope he keeps the same narrator for the audio book, Adam Verner; he did an excellent job!

I enjoyed the first book, but the second one in the series arrived in an unreadable form - at chapter 8 the question marks became a series of weird characters - really messed up the read. I returned it.
The update appears to have fixed all but chapter 8 - enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe book was well written enough that it was like I was standing there watching it all

The book was well written enough that it was like I was standing there watching it all. The only problem I have with this book, I also have the same problem with all books. I have decided that the misuse of the words "I" and "me" must come from whomever converts the books to digital. I find it hard to believe that EVERY author does not know the correct way to use these two small words.
Well, book one and two go hand in hand. Also book two ended with everything fairly tidy. The battle was fought and won, but the war continues. The young kids are headed back to school, with the understanding that the war continues. Will old enemies return? The intertwining of mages, Warriors, gods and demons make for and interesting read.

Gama has a knack for writing books that you just can't put down. This second book in the series continues shortly after the first one. We are introduced to some new characters that I hope stick around and we are introduced to more of the world. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
