Allie is starting to adjust to life at Nerissette...sort of.
Being Queen is still really hard when rumors of the Fate
Maker being back start to come up, and it seems like a civil
war might be brewing in her land. To top that off, she can't
even seem to get any alone time with her newfound boyfriend.
Things look like they might be getting a lot worse before
they get better.
This second installment to The Chronicles of
series, EVANESCENT, is a superb follow up to the first.
While I liked Allie in the first book, I love her in this
one. She faces so many obstacles in this sequel, and her
continual development is exciting and full of depth. I
especially love how she starts discovering more about
herself even though so many people are expecting her to do
only what they expect of her. It is an absolute beautiful
progression of her character and maturity.
The action and plot twists Andria Buchanan puts in keep the
story moving very quickly. I particularly like the one at
the end, because I never saw it coming. Most of the action
and twists are also used nicely to give more insight into
the world of Nerissette. It's amazing how unique and
extraordinary different fairy tale worlds can become, and
Nerissette is a wonderful example of that.
Overall, I am highly enjoying this series. I like this
sequel even more than first, and I can't wait for the next
book to come out. The storyline is gripping, and I love the
depth this one reaches and the potential for even more depth
that it puts in by the end. It will be very interesting to
see what happens next to these characters.
Trapped in the deadly land of Nerissette, Allie has all but
given up on any return
to the mortal realm. Unless she can find the two elusive
artifacts that have the
power to get her and her friends back home.
But sheâ€™s got even bigger problems as the newly crowned
queen of Nerissette:
she must unite her people in the midst of a civil war and
capture the Fate Maker
â€”the evil puppet master responsible for the conflictâ€”before
he can find
another army willing to return him to power.
On top of it all, Allie is just a normal teenager. Her
feelings are growing for the
guy sheâ€™s certain is her true love, and balancing her
personal life while being
the queen isnâ€™t as easy as it sounds. Allie must learn the
true meaning of
bravery, love, and kinship, regardless of the worldâ€”and
