It has been mere days in the world of Eon, where Rune Jenkins, her twin brother Ryker, and their friend Grey have been trapped, fighting for their lives. After discovering the truth of their ancestry, the three are far from home, and far from anything resembling their mundane lives of the past.
While Ryker is still held captive by the eerily beautiful Zio and her goblins, Grey falls into the clutches of Feena, the Fae queen. She begins to drain his soul bit by bit to feed her dark underground garden, and Grey has no hope of escaping on his own.
It is now up to Rune to save Grey, as his precious time slips away inexorably. But the Council has denied her permission to embark on a rescue mission, until she can harness her Venator gifts and prove herself capable of venturing into the Fae queen’s territory. As Rune discovers that promises in Eon are forged with life-or-death consequences, she realizes that she must act quickly, or else be swallowed – and Grey along with her – by the dangers of Eon.
Despite only reviewing early chapters for the tour of books one – Venators; Magic Unleashed, I finished book one just before I read this and my review will follow shortly. Finishing book one left me with a thirst to continue the story of Rune and Grey and I couldn’t wait to dive back into the world.
Where book one spent time building a fascinating world (where everything we have ever read about exists) and developing kick-ass characters and their back stories, book two gets deeper into the action and picks up right where Magic Unleashed left off.
I simply adore Devri’s writing style and as an occasional reader of fantasy I find that it flows so well and is easy to follow. Her description is vivid and creative and completely transports the reader into such a magical world that is so unique and full of wonder but still feels so familiar and relatable.
I love that the lead character is tough, strong but realistic in emotions and responses the events. She is , in many ways, a typical young lady of her age and I found her to be a totally believable character. I’m also a huge fan of the fiesty Verida too. I love a series where the characters do change and evolve and this certainly happens in this series.
With a great, intense plot, stunning world building and ever growing characters, The Venators series is an excellent fantasy series and I cannot wait for the third installment.
