Spotlight & Review : Taliesin Ascendant (The Children and the Blood #2) by Megan Joel Peterson (YA)


Book Blurb

The war isn’t over.

And new enemies await.

Life on the run hasn’t been easy, but so far, Ashe has survived. But now Carter has ordered her away from the Hunters to find her family’s people – an order she can’t refuse, no matter how much she wants to stay.

Following his command will bring her into an unknown world, however – a world filled with new enemies and old prejudices that will demand more of her than she can imagine, at a cost higher than she’ll ever be willing to pay.

Toot's Review

Taliesin Ascendant Is the second book in The Children and The Blood YA trilogy. This book picks right up where the first book left off. The Children are still on the run and are hunting for answers as well as just trying to stay one step ahead of their enemies.

This book sees more introduction of new characters and gives us more insight into the politics behind what happened with the kids and where they fit into the whole scheme of things. I really don't want to give too much away because I really love this series. The first book is an absolute gem and this book is a great follow up. It answers a lot of questions that were left hanging and gives the reader more insight into this unique world that Megan Joel Peterson has created. It's very much a modern day Escape From Witch Mountain with a heavy fantasy and urban fantasy element.

What I love most about the series is that the author doesn't let the reader in on everything right up front. As the characters learn about themselves, you as the reader learn. Things unfold but you still know there's more to the story that you don't know. It's very unique writing and an absolute high speed, action packed adventure that you're traveling on with the main characters.

Definitely worth the read!!!
