Estes weaves a cautionary tale about the dangers of power, discrimination, and zealotry. I very much look forward to the next installment in the series.

This is the second book in the Sisters of the Storm series, but it is also regarded as a standalone novel. First things first, I LOVE the cover artwork. Fantastically detailed and without resorting to the good-ol model in front of a photoshopped background. I never was a fan of those. Secondly, it is important to see if the book does truly stand on its own. This is especially vital in my case since I have not read the first book. I’m pleased to say that “Reckoning” definitely does. The reader is immersed in a fantasy world that takes the time to let you in on the details bit by bit. Though at times a lot to absorb, the lore is developed properly and consistently. Now onto the leading lady.

This is Baezha Ambrose’s struggle and her journey is a page turner from start to finish. At first, I felt that Aleena Kurrin was a lot less developed in comparison, but I soon realized this was Baezha’s time to shine. Nonetheless, the duo is endlessly awesome. Guy E. Estes’ writing left me wanting more of the world he’s created. I will have to pick up the first installment.

Oh, did I forget to mention the action? If you’re looking for action-packed fantasy, this is it! The gory fights are entertaining and speak to the grittier fantasy fans such as myself. Estes weaves a cautionary tale about the dangers of power, discrimination, and zealotry. I very much look forward to the next installment in the series.
