This is the second book of The Riven Wyrde Saga. Review for the first book
Disclaimer: I have received a review copy in exchange of an honest review and I have recently signed with the same publisher. However I read book 1 and started reading this book before I signed with Realmwalker.
This is the second book of the Riven Wyrde Saga series by Graham Austin-King. See the review for the first book, Fae: The Wild Hunt:
This book continues the momentum of action where the first book ended, in a different part of the world. If you have read The Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist and loved the thieves guild setting there, you are definitely going to enjoy the opening chapters of The Realm of Twilight featuring the thieves.
Female characters play a large part in this book. Ylsriss and Selena are awesome and I really enjoyed reading their adventures, struggles and character development. The parts set in the Fae realm are the best and the most exciting to read for me. The Fae realm is very magical, alien and creepy to the core. I actually liked it far better than the Fae realm in Rothfuss books. The worldbuilding is phenomenal and the magic is outstanding. If you are a lover of magic systems interesting artifacts, you will definitely love these chapters. I am not easily impressed with the magic in modern fantasy books and I can say the magic in this book is as exciting as the Harry Potter in some parts. The Fae are dark and scary, the horrible things they do makes this book even darker than the first.
