Cover Thoughts: I LOVE these covers. It offers so much. I like the half face, the fierce look, LOVE!
Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor.
Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.
He doesn’t know that Zo is very much alive and in another part of the region assisting Nameless refugees over a mountain swarming with wild men known as “Clanless.”
As each struggle to make sense of what their lives have become, they fight and claw to reach the Allied Camp, their last hope in bringing peace to the region.
But the road back to one another is treacherous and uncertain. And freedom will come with a price.
I have GOT to own these books. They were awesome. And DO NOT let goodreads fool you I tweeted to the author asking if there was going to be a third book and she said YES and it comes out May/June of 2017 WHEW!
This book starts off exactly where we left off from book one Nameless. Which I of course greatly appreciate. I loved the pacing, the world building, character development, the story. All very well done and worth it. I loved meeting and getting involved with the other clans and even being introduced to a sort-of new clan which was awesome and totally made sense. So we definitely see more of all that in this book, seeing why the clans are named the way they are and some of they tradition, superstitions, and history.
I was constantly on my toes with this book. What certain characters did and why left me with a sense of constant clutching of the book in anticipation for the next step in this adventure.
I love Gryphon. oh how I love him. He is all muscle, soldier and YET a good guy. He realized his physical strengths weaknesses which I liked seeing him struggle at times. I love that he is a great “role model” for young audiences. He is a GOOD guy and nothing about him is weak or those things that are perceived as weak are shown that those things are NOT weak. Plus he is completely swoon-worthy! AH!
I do like Zo, she is strong. This has taken her in a completely different direction than what she thought was going to happen. The emotional struggle she has with herself I appreciated seeing. I really do like he strengths which are not physical but more emotional and tries to do all she can to do what is right for her family. Really selfless.
There really isn’t any romance which is fine because it’s there but it doesn’t overwhelm the story which I appreciate. This book has everything that anybody would love in a good book and story. I can’t wait to read more by this author!
Overall: LOVED and MUST OWN!
