Beneath the Forsaken City – A Book Review

About the Book (from Amazon):

Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druid’s reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdiu’s plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival. But at what cost? Will they learn to depend on Comdiu completely? Or will they give up hope?

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Song of Seare series. I absolutely loved the first book and was extremely excited that I didn’t have to wait too long to read the next in the series. Sequels always seem to have a hard time living up to the first, and I had a hard time with this one at first. I wish that it had had a summary reviewing what had happened in the first book because I did have a hard time remembering all that had happened in the first book. Once I had read a few chapters and got back into the story, it didn’t quite grab my attention like the first one did. I feel that most of the book was just setting up the stage for the next one. It gave a lot of needed information, and I think it will be important in the overall story, but it just didn’t have much meat to it. It will be better when I reread this series after all of the books are released. The book ended well and had you wishing that you could read the next one already, but once again we must wait, but I imagine it will be well worth it. I give this book 4 out of 5 starts because it was good information, but it did not pull you into it or flow very well overall.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for my fair and honest review.
