Publication. Date: November 13, 2018
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, Audiobook
Synopsis: I should probably start at the beginning, Zed wrote, when things first went wrong?
Zed, Brock, and their friends may have saved Freestone from destruction, but the fight against the Dangers is far from over. No one knows what to expect next from the dark power that forced the elves to abandon their city. And the influx of elf refugees in Freestone strains resources and brews resentment among the townspeople. Things have shifted between best friends Zed and Brock, as well, with their friendship crumbling under the weight of the secrets they’re keeping from each other.
When tensions reach an all-time high, Queen Me’Shala, leader of the elves, approaches the Adventurers Guild with a mission. She wants a small group of adventurers to go behind the king’s back on a covert mission to save her city, and Zed, Brock, Liza, Jett, Micah, and their elven friend Fel join the quest. To face a powerful form of magic thought to be extinct, the adventurers will have to learn how to rely on each other and fight harder than ever before.
Don’t miss this second installment of Zack Loran Clark and Nicholas Eliopulos’s Adventurers Guild trilogy, where the stakes are raised, the action is breathless, and the dangers will stop even the bravest of hearts.
Last year I read the first book in The Adventurer’s Guild series, and I thought it was a really great read. It was the kind of book that I want my kids to read when they are a bit older, and I can read it along with them.
When I heard about Twilight of the Elves, the second book in The Adventurer’s Guild series, I was excited to see what the authors would do with it. I loved how the book continued where the last one left off, with all the same characters that I loved from the first book.
The cover, like the first book, is visually stunning and I loved the different colors, textures, and how the characters are on it. It pretty much told me that I was in for a wild ride way before I even opened the book. It was definitely a great cover to get the excitement going!
The settings in this book were described in such great detail, and it was magical how the story came to life. I absolutely loved reading this, and the authors had so much talent talking about what was going on that I actually felt like I was there with the characters. I LOVE book with amazing world building and this one fit the bill!
The characters – ah, the characters. The beloved main character and supporting characters from the previous novel return for a brand new adventure – and they’re just as amazingly written as the first time around. They have so much personality and are so much fun to read about. I kind of wish I would have had awesome friends like that when I was that age!
The plot was fast paced and kept you moving right along. It was perfect to keep readers of all ages interested. I think that this series would be absolutely perfect for reluctant readers, because it’s impossible to lose interest in something that has so much going on!
I loved this book as much as I loved the first one. It was fun, it was magical, and it was full of the strong bond of friendship!
Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
