Eyes of E'veria, Book 2
by Serena Chase
PURPOSED by birth. DESTINED by prophecy. REVEALED by Truth. Now, her time has come.
Having come to terms with her long-hidden identity, Princess Rynnaia E’veri is ready to take her rightful place. But before she can join her father at Castle Rynwyk, she must endeavor to fulfill a 200-year-old prophecy and defeat the Kingdom’s ancient enemy, the Cobelds. Joined by her faithful knight, Sir Julien de Gladiel, and a gifted group of friends, Rynnaia must trek a dangerous path through canyons, forests, and into the very depths of a mountain where, if the prophetic scrolls prove correct, she will face an unknown foe, alone. Treacheries will be discovered, sacrifices will be made, friends will be lost, and love will be tested, but if even one line of the riddled prophecy is misinterpreted, Rynnaia will fail . . . and the Kingdom will fall.
Beginning at the point THE RYN ended, THE REMEDY concludes an epic re-imagining of the classic Grimm fairy tale, SNOW WHITE & ROSE RED, but the Eyes of E'veria series is only beginning . . .
Boy, am I glad I had this book downloaded to read on my Kindle right after I finished the first book, The Ryn (my review HERE) but I'm a little upset that I have to WAIT for the next book! Serena, give us book 3...please? To quote the AT&T kids, "We want more. We want more. Like... you really like it, you want more!" Now, you may be wondering why I'm so desperate for the next story, it's not because this book has a huge cliff hanger ending, it didn't really for me, but because I love the characters so much and want to know just what is going to become of them! For example, roguish pirate Cazien and brave Erielle! I'm a little disappointed that Cazien didn't make much of an appearance in this book as I was hoping since he intrigued me so much in the first story. Oh well, a girl can't have it all. The Remedy did however seem to have everything else. It was an epic adventure that reminded me of a mash up of Disney's Mulan, Lord of the Rings, and Snow White and the Huntsman.
The Remedy picks up right where The Ryn left off so I definitely don't recommend reading these books out of order. That said, Rynnaia and Julien's relationship unfolds even more in this story than in the last. *Mild spoiler* I must say, that even though they didn't kiss until the very end of the book, there certainly wasn't a lack of romance (*cough cough* Chapter 20)! Serena can definitely write some romance/fantasy/allegory!
I recommend both books in the series to all readers, even those who don't' enjoy fantasy. Truth be told I wasn't the world's biggest fantasy/allegorical fan but I think I'm going to have to give more in this genre a chance if they are even half as good! This is a well written, well thought out series that I can't wait to read more of!
