Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley

     Book two of the Angelaeon Circle series follows Trevin. Now a supporter and servant of King Laetham, Trevin is on a quest to find the king’s missing comains. He is also searching for the harps Melaia needs to help her rebuild the stairway to heaven. Villains lurk at every turn with traps and plots. Trevin is running out of time to complete his mission, and prove himself in the process.

I enjoyed the first book of the series, Breath of Angel, but this one is better. While Melaia’s story was interesting and made for an excellent start to the series, Trevin’s past makes him a much deeper character. Character-driven stories, in my opinion, are always the best. They keep the reader interested. They make us care. Mission accomplished here. Trevin is a character you truly pull for. New characters are also introduced. Ollena is a personal favorite. We also learn a lot more about the Angelaeon: who’s who, what they can do.

If the rest of the series continues on this level, it will be a great series. I can’t wait for the third one.

I give this one 5 out of 5.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from WaterBrook Multnomah.
