Publisher's Summary

“The Grays—they’re monsters. I don’t know if we can stop them. But we have to try. Monsters can’t be left alone.”

Nearly a year has passed since Tavi Malin split the earth and healed it, escaping from the Grays. She’s settled back into small-town life. But the Grays have been quietly growing stronger, and when they attack someone close to Tavi, grief threatens to destroy her.

Tavi and the Golds resume their battle against gray magic.  But the Grays are still pursuing Tavi—and that means anyone with her is in danger. She’s determined to protect her friends by fighting alone.
Battered by sorrow and fear, Tavi grows reckless, risking her friendships and her life. As the Grays produce weapons and plot to crown one of their own as king, Tavi considers what was once unthinkable: she may need to embrace gray magic in order to defeat it.

Such a fun series!

Here we are, back where I started a while back. The shock at the beginning was almost enough to turn me off this series before I even started...But I'm so glad I kept reading! The events in the beginning of this one now make sense, and it really does serve a purpose, so I'm happy.

As the second book in a series, I'm not to say too much, since this one continues where the first book left off. Tavi and the Golds (her friends) have gotten themselves tangled up with the Grays (a band of mostly older magics users with a corrupted form of magic.) This one has a little more action and the characters have to make some difficult decisions.

Gray vs Gold, whose on top

I loved the twist and turns of Tavina and Tulan's relationship and the crescendo of the grays being on top. you must read this book to continue the adventure. I loved that Tavi finally matured and went back to where she belonged. I can't wait for the last chapter

Standing up for What is True

Many thanks to Carol Beth Anderson for the complimentary copy of this audio book for my honest review. Anderson's narration in this book is excellent, even better than in the first novel. Facing the Gray is the second installment of the Sun Blessed Trilogy and I very much appreciate not having to wait a year between the installments of this series. This book thickens the plot that was begun in the first novel and deepens the development of the characters maturity both personally and in life experience while driving the plot forward. One element of this series that I think Anderson shows mastery of is the depth of reflection entertained by the characters. Her language eloquently expresses the deep thinking of Tavi and her friends as they assess their personal and interpersonal decisions, passions and interactions. Anderson weaves together a historical background in which the characters participate in and address both big picture/world political elements and struggle with personal temptation to give into passions coupled with the will to identify and stand up for what is true and good. I think this is striking to me because this depth in my experience is not found in many novels that I've read for young adults and I think it's a critical component to their personal and social growth. I highly recommend this book and look forward to listening to the final installment of the trilogy.
