Review of Advance Reader Copy
Ezekiola endures Emerald training but struggles to meet the expectations of the trainers. Igor Sanza, certain that his student has not actually tapped into the Fountain of Fire, questions why Ezekiola does not tap into Zeke’s warrior skills now that the two have merged.
Ezekiola returns to Cypress School only to discover his friends are wary, concerned that he might be a threat. And, making things more troublesome, Falco Rasspan, the new head of the Forest Stewardship Council, is making things difficult for everyone.
What lies ahead for Ezekiola?
Although this book is the second in the author’s Fountain of Fire series, readers will find sufficient backstory for the story to work as a standalone. With the expected characters in place, the unfolding narrative follows Ezekiola’s efforts to understand what has happened to him as a result of tapping into the Fountain of Fire and melding with Zeke.
Believable characters, a compelling plot, impressive world-building, and surprising revelations combine to keep readers turning the pages at breakneck speed; readers who enjoy science fiction and fantasy are sure to find much to appreciate in the evolving narrative that is both intriguing and unputdownable. Be warned, however; there’s a cliffhanger ending here.
I received a free copy of this book from The Book Whisperer, Leone Potere Press and NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
I became a huge fan of Lucy Kyan when I read the first book in this series: “Ezekiola and the Emerald Belt”. When the first book is so great it’s difficult to live up to the expectations with no 2, but Lucy Kyan does that – and in a splendid way in my opinion. She is a gifted writer.
This book is captivating and exciting. It is filled with spirituality for those who have eyes to see and at the same time it’s pure pleasure to follow the storyline. Let me warn you: Make sure you have some time when you pick up this book – you won’t be able to put it down.
And now I can’t wait for the next book in the series! It is highly recommended!
