ON A REVIEW SITE:
To say I couldn’t wait to read the fourth installment of this amazing YA series would be the understatement of the year! The Land of Windemere is truly enchanting and each adventure brings it closer and closer to one of my all time favorite series. Right up there with the likes of Harry Potter.
As previously mentioned, this is the fourth installment and I have reviewed the previous three books. You can find those reviews here:
Family of the Tri-Rune starts where Allure of the Gypsies left off. I have to admit, I wasn’t certain what direction the series was going to take after what happened at Hero’s Gate in Allure of the Gypsies. I can’t say to much without giving away the whole series but I absolutely love how the author brings closure to things from previous books as well as create new and interesting story lines as well as introduce new characters.
This book has a lot of Nyx in it, and since she is one of my favorite characters I absolutely loved that. Of course Luke was also front and center and he finds himself in the middle of a complicated love triangle in this book.
The fight scenes are what I think sets this series apart from many others. They are written in a way that makes you feel like you are really watching in on television the writing is so vivid. I have never read another book that can pull it off so well.
Overall I very highly recommend this series, but I can only recommend it if you start from the beginning. There is too much character building and character growth to simply jump into the middle of the series. At least, that is my opinion. It is a free country after all 😛
The magical adventure continues after Luke Callindor and his friends recover from their battles in Haven.
Nyx still has nightmares about casting the genocide spell in Hero’s Gate. Every night her heart is gripped by the sensation of hundreds of goblins dying by her magic. By the request of Lord Highrider and Duke Solomon, she is returning to fix the damage she caused. With Luke Callindor and Sari by her side, Nyx is ready to face the vengeful goblins and opportunistic thieves that plague Hero’s Gate. Yet, there is a darker threat that was born from her violated magic: The Krypters.
It is another action-packed, character driven story that will reveal one of our heroes has been lied to for their entire life.
