Sequel Review: "The King's Scrolls"

I've tried to keep this review spoiler-free in regards to Book 1. I'll have a new series next week, so be sure to stop in again!

The Short:

The King’s Scrolls
Ilyon Chronicles, Book 2

By: Jaye L. Knight

5/5 Stars

What: The race is on to claim the last of the King’s Scrolls before the Emperor destroys them.

Recommended to those who like: Fantasy, Christian, and have read The Resistance.

The Long:           


The fledgling resistance has discovered that there is one remaining copy of the King’s Scrolls left in the empire. But can they locate it before the Emperor’s armies destroy them?

In this book, we rejoin all of our favorite characters from the start of the series—Kyrin, Rayad, Kaden, and Jace. We also draw in more characters who were on the periphery of the earlier books. Character development is still good, though not as deep as it was in The Resistance. The action continues to build and the stakes are higher than ever.

The Christian message is really strong in this book. Some may find it comforting and others may find it slightly preachy, but I thought it was well done overall. Although the story world generally reflects the set-up of Rome, there are some more traditional fantasy elements that are introduced in this book.

It isn’t necessary to have read Half-Blood to understand this book, but I would highly recommend reading The Resistance first. Samara’s Peril, Book 3, will be released on May 13th, so stay tuned for more!

Are you waiting for any new releases in a series? 

I'm also still looking for guest posters for Friday, April 29th and Tuesday, May 3rd.
