Follows award-winning Preteen/Teen Fantasy ARROW OF THE MIST
Can also be read on its own

Blood of body, blood of soul,
Entwined for life, then unfolds;
If blood still runs when magic binds,
Soul is never too far to find.

In ARMS OF ANU, Lia and Kelven battle through a land of tyrants, war and magic.

Can Lia escape the foes who ensnare her?
Will Kelven's love withstand the darkness taking root inside Lia?
Is freedom too high a crown to reach, or will they forever remain in the hollows?

First Impression:

I couldn’t pass up reading this one as soon as I was finished with the first. I really love the world and the characters. This is such a great fantasy and I couldn’t wait to see how it ended.

The Story & Characters:

The flow of the book is great, however, I felt it was a little slower than the other. This book is in two POVs Lia and Kelven. I actually liked having the two POVs and I thought it helped flow the story but at some points I wanted to see more of what was happening with Lia than Kelven. The story picks up where the last left off and you get more of a back story about the characters and what is going on but I was still feeling a little disconnected with some of them. I loved the struggle that Lia was having and I enjoyed the adventure both Kelven and Lia are on together. They have good chemistry and again the romance was a more set in the background but you still got enough of it to satisfy you because you want to see them together.

Final Thoughts:

Overall I really enjoyed this book, I loved the world build and even with little connection to the characters I still actually enjoyed them.This is a great fantasy read and both books are wonderful. I almost wished there would have been one more but I was very happy with how this ended.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!
