I liked Escape from Avoria even more than The Pillar of Light. Although there were some typos and awkward spot, like in the first book, this book was somewhat better written and had fewer of each of those. The story line seemed to flow better than in the first novel, as well, and there were a lot of questions that were filled in, as the plot unfolded.
Things made more sense to both the reader and the characters of the Milana series as Nani slowly recovered more of her memory. The connection between her and her sar, Tai, increased, along with their ability to use their powers. We begin to see the effects of the Pillar of Light on Nani’s friend Alexi. And we can better understand the role of the Val Dinia to her people.
It was interesting to see the various reactions of people along their journey, as Nani and her friends encountered them in their effort to leave Avoria and the threat of the Hunters and the Tarn. The action comes to such a dramatic and suspenseful crescendo, I could hardly stand to put the book down. But then stops rather abruptly.
Nevertheless, I can’t wait to read the next novel in the series to see how things go for Nani and her friends with the Breathless ones!
