Trine Fallacy, The Kinderra Saga: Book 2


Must read 🏆

A thrilling story that will leave a deep impression on the reader and have them wanting so much more.

Before I start the actual review, I highly suggest you read the first book before you start book 2 as there is so much history that should be absorbed first. I found it very valuable. Plus you get more familiar with the characters.

Now on to this review....

This is more than a story of fate and fantasy. It is about deep emotions and how we deal with them. I have to admit that when I first started reading this epic story I was just enjoying the story itself. Toward the end of book two, I began to feel something deeper than just enjoyment. I began to analyze what I had read on a much deeper and psychological level. Is the bad guy all that bad? Why do I feel connected to him in some level? Why are the good and bad guys not so clearly good and bad anymore? Why does this feel so real? Why do I feel like i know these characters?

The story is developed in a manner that keeps the reader engaged and holding their breath to discover what will happen next. There is a mission as every epic story needs to have. There is a antagonist and a protagonist and everyone in between. Then the lines blur in a way that signifies good writing. Most people aren't only one role or the other. Real people cross lines and have baggage of their own that changes those lines. So do these characters. Because of that, these characters are some of the most "real" I have read in a long time.

The writing is very well done in that there is not excessive amount of descriptions of the scenes or characters. There is just enough to give the reader the necessary information to get the scene right in their head. Excessive descriptions turn me off and have me quickly putting the book down. This one did not do that. I got exactly what my imagination needed to see it all in my head.

I was very upset to know book three wasn't done yet. I need it now! I hope you enjoy this story as much as I have. Great read. Check it out.
