Following on from a hugely enjoyable debut novel, Rathbone follows it up with Inherited Danger (The Dawning of Power).
It is just as good as the first! Catrin ventures even further away from her home overcoming various challenges and getting closer and closer to her inevitable destiny.
I especially like the 'feeling' behind the characters in this book. Just like in the Tolkein books there is a feeling of great friendship and loyalty, honor, and determination to do the right 'thing' even at great personal cost. Friends die along the way for the 'cause' and you will find yourself eagerly turning the pages.
I was astonished to find that this e-book was also released for FREE as was the first in the series. I would happily have paid for this book and thoroughly recommend it you
I read the first in the series so wanted to continue the story. However, I realise it is written for older children/teenagers and allow for it as such. The story is written in such a way as to keep your interest though which is why I give it 4 stars. If it was written in a more adult style (doesn't have to have sex and bad language to be adult interest) I would give 5 stars.
these books are perfect for someone who like to read a bit of fantasy but still maintain a little bit of reality. the author has portrayed the heroine perfectly she is an average farm girl with the average problems of a girl her age, there is discrimination, fear, hope and deep friendships.
The story telling and cliff hangers are great and make you want to keep reading just to find out what happens in truth just a little slow to start but the action picks up pace and steadily increasing the number of times you want to read again.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward, with great expectation to the final book in the trilogy . Unlike some fantasy books I have read in the past, these books have been extremely well written
