I was lucky enough to win a copy of Second Chance: The Chronicles of Freylar in a local competition, and I’m so glad I did. I absolutely loved the book.

Before I get to the good bits, I must say, when I started reading it my first thought was “I think the author swallowed a thesaurus”. He doesn’t use normal, everyday language. As well as unusual vocabulary, he also uses unusual grammar, so it took me a while to get into the rhythm of his writing style. I soon got used to it though, and stopped noticing. Once you get to Freylar, the language style seems to fit very well, and I can understand why the author chose it.

I have got one gripe that almost had me giving up early on. He mostly referred to characters simply as ‘he’ or ‘she’ instead of giving their name, which in the first couple of chapters was frustrating to me. I’d sometimes get through a whole page or two before I knew who I was reading about. When I read a novel of any kind, I like to connect with/become the main character, and lose myself completely in the book. The lack of identity kept me distanced, and made me feel more like an observer instead of a participant in the story. Once I got to know the characters and the situations they were each in, I was able to get into it fully, and I’m glad I did.

The characters are well-rounded, intelligent, emotional and real. I could identify with all of them. The story is set in two worlds, an alternate version of our own, and Freylar. The new world, the people in it, and the challenges they face, were fascinating, inventive, enchanting, and had me gripped. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series to see how the characters develop and what other adventures they face.

I can imagine this appealing to men and women equally. There are various strong male and female characters, facing personal growth, quests, and battles – something for everyone.

I have found the author's first novel to start slowly for me. There is a good reason for that. He tries to introduce us to two new worlds at the same time, showing all intricate details: a cruel and unforgiving dystopia, and magical fantastic world. The author did not try to 'put on anyone else's hat', he is not copying successful, great writers, he has his own ideas, plots and characters. I have found the main character's straightforwardness and honesty, and unappeasable curiosity a really good mix of personality. I am looking forward to read the next episode, hoping that it will be even more captivating...

It is rare I find a new author where the world brings they create brings bright new ideas and ignites one's imagination, but here Second Chance achieves this with not one but two worlds. First couple of chapters are intense in their description, but once in, I struggled to put the book down as the story quickly gripped me with a wanting to find out more. I strongly hope this is the first of many books the author creates within these new worlds ripe for more adventure and intrigue!

This is a fast-paced book with plenty of plot twists and turns that had me hooked right until the end! I would recommend it to any scifi fans out there (and even those who aren't fans). I'm already looking forward to reading the next installment.

I very much enjoyed reading this. A good premise for a series while also being an entertaining tale in its own right

I found the characters to be interesting and we'll fleshed out while also leaving the reader wanting to know more about them and their motivations.

From the authors Facebook page I believe that a sequel is already in the works. Look forward to reading it!
