I read both books in about one day, as I said in my review of the first book, these are great stories, well written and with characters that you can care about, all in all a great read and I will definitely buy any and all sequels. In fact I liked them so much that after having read them for free with Kindle Unlimited, I went back and bought them to better reward the author, I hope doubly. Sorry I never comment on the stories themselves. I hate spoilers
This book is the second in the series about Devon Sanders, Private Investigator and student wizard. In general, it was an enjoyable read though it had several points of confusion and story flow difficulties as it tried to wrap together and develop several plots of varying length -- this book, or multi-book/series.
There is also some confusion with what Devon is actually learning, and how he learns it. As an example, in the first book Devon's assigned element was water, and he did spend some time with Undines who were presented as water elementals.He ended up becoming ill, and it was difficult to see just what lessons he was suppose to learn. In the second book, Devon's assigned element is earth. He has one brief meeting with a gnome (earth elemental) and a series of missed meetings with his mentor. In both books, he "learns his element", whatever that's suppose to mean...
As a character, Devon's not always likable, though he's slowly adding depth and growing beyond being an "angry young man". As a story (within this book), things were thrown together, confusing both reader and character. There was no real resolution of any of the plots within this book -- they remain open, though not quite in a "cliffhanger" manner.
I'll read the next book, but am not really happy with the way this book was written...
This book is just as good as the first one. The plot gets deeper and deeper without leaving things hanging in the story, and leaves you wanting more. (In the good way not the incomplete book way) I can't wait for the sequel
I've read two books in this series. The only reason is that I like the plots and the characters. The writing is maybe high-school level, the editing (if any) is terrible. I'd love to see the author develop a more mature style; I like her imagination.
