Karen’s Magic Review
This is the second book in the Protectors of the Elemental Magic series. My review of the first book, Remember is here.
This was a truly magically story and in so many different ways. But first, let me go through the picture at the top. The tree is the entry point to a secret underground world. A kingdom of snow covered land ruled by the evil Snowystra. To the left are the two main characters. When Cole is taken by Snowsystra, Mara pledges to go after him and bring him home.
With help, she enters via the tree and is welcomed by the guardians who want to eat her. Luckily she escapes into the winter wonderland.
The castle is the home that Cole has waiting for her so they can begin their new life. Being the Protector of the Elemental Magic, Mara has to use it to rescue her beloved, who thinks it is where they truly belong and he wants her to join him.
Can she bring him safely home? Well, you will just have to see. The evil is everywhere, hidden behind the beauty. And Mara’s first port of call is to address the terrible conditions where the people are forced to live in the underground caves. A contrast to those who live above.
Magic and fantasy is something I didn’t think I would enjoy, but I loved this. The author creates such a wonderful world that addresses good and evil, people, creatures, and places are brought alive with superb descriptions. The story has everything to keep a reader mesmerised and absorbed right to the very last page.
An enchanting, and often dark tale, that is part of this majestically series.
THE WINTER IS UNLEASHED
There is a world around us that most people don’t take the time to see.
Mara Stone’s world was shaken, but she is a fighter. As she starts to rebuild her life, the web of her family’s secrets continues to unravel. Facing new adversaries while forced to confront her fear of losing everything she holds dear, Mara learns what it truly means to Protect the Magic. But is it worth the cost?
Finding themselves trapped in the cold world of Snowstrum, Mara and Cole are faced with a choice. Will they choose to be true to their promises and protect the magic, or fall prey to their greed, following their own desires instead? Will magic be enough to free them from the icy fortress imprisoning them?
The second book in the Protectors of the Elemental Magic series, Exigency, is a compelling, magical coming of age fantasy tale.
