The Mage-Lord's Legacy, Consellation Saga book 2
Why did I start reading it?
Because I liked the first one.
What is it?
After a confusing encounter at the end of the first book, the consolations not only have to look for their last two members but the rest of the urns. More adventure, more drama, more battle.
What are the characters like?
So best girl River appeared. Helping pick up the team in both combat and emotion. Maybe not the sharpest tool in the shed at times but she brought some well needed light heartedness that the team was missing.
What's the bad news?
To anyone else, this probably isn't a complaint but a compliment but I seriously considered putting this book down at times because the heroes couldn't catch a break and the despair was making me too sad to want to read on. These heroes just don't catch a break and the wins are few and far between. I get heroes are supposed to face trouble but I am a soft baby with high empathy and it was a bit much at times.
And the good news?
I'm on this ride and I don't want to get off. I like these characters. I'm terrified for them and I need to see where this goes and ends. I can't think of what I specifically like about this series and that makes this 'good news' section kinda hard to write. It's written very well, flows well and is just easy to pick up and put down. That's good feedback, right?
Would you recommend?
If you looking for a cool fantasy adventure with an awesome female protag then this series continues to impress. Highly recommend.
