Ily wide coalition as the last defense against an enemy that will stop at nothing to undo Ancient’s influence on Earth before there is no longer an Earth to fight forDarkness death and the ancient powers that shape the world will collide as our heroes discover that some children collapse under their dark inheritance and those that don’t are haunted by blood 35 starsDon't get me wrong this is an excellent follow up to Scion of the Fox and I am definitely psyched to read The Brilliant Dark when it comes out later this year It is slightly weaker than the first installment howeverPart of what made Scion of the Fox so great was the very real teenage characters who did normal teenage things in between all of the freaky fantasy things happening to them it grounded the series and made it a lot relatable than 95% of the YA series out there Another part was the terrific cast of diverse characters and their natural chemistry together which led to some great dialogueThe problem with this series was that the teenagers were no longer doing normal teenage things Roan is now in Scotland working as a waitress while searching for clues about the evil she might have unwillingly unleashed on the world in banishing Zabor the big bad from book one The rest of the characters are flying around the world to global summits and going off on spirit uests with enchanted polar bears The characters also spent most of the book apart from one another which kind of suckedThe plot was interesting if somewhat scattered and difficult to follow in places and the pacing was great Its still one of the most uniue and well written YA series out there right now and has a bonus of being indie and Canadian I highly recommend checking the series out if YA fantasy is your thing but don't be surprised by the modest dip in uality in book 2 I have high hopes that book 3 will be a return to form

Children of the BloodlandsThe dazzling second book in SM Beiko’s Realms of Ancient seriesThree months after the battle of Zabor the five friends that came together to defeat her have been separated Burdened with the Calamity Stone she acuired in Scion of the Fox Roan has gone to Scotland to retrace her grandmother’s steps in an attempt to stop further evil from entering the worldMeanw This was FANTASTIC I will have a full review up soonEdit Full review hereChildren of the Bloodlands is the second installment in The Realms of Ancient Trilogy by SM Beiko ECW Press was kind enough to send me a beautiful copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I read Scion of the Fox #1 back in February and while it was a bit of a whirlwind I thoroughly enjoyed the urban fantasy I was super excited to receive this book from ECW Press and dived right into it as soon as it arrivedI’m not going to lie one of the main reasons I was anticipating this book was because I really wanted to see what else would happen between Roan and Eli and not just if something were to happen romantically – some of my favourite scenes from Scion of the Fox were to do with both of them but especially because the ending of the first book left them on such a cliffhanger Enter this book – still a fair bit muddled between the two of them but there is MORE and that’s what I wantedThe character development grew deeper in this expansion which was something I really appreciated and definitely enhanced the story line Most of the main characters were in high school when this adventure began but now they are out on their own – becoming adults while trying to figure out everything else that was thrust upon them  I felt like Natti was a bit of thrown in character in the 1st book and kind of again in the 2nd book but she wasn’t a character I felt a deeper connection with to be honest Roan is very pigheaded and wants zero help with anything – another character I don’t always feel a connection to but still enjoy reading Barton has small but very important parts to play out in each novel and I admire his determination and love his feelings for Phae Eli has always been an interesting character to me and his lack of trust in anyone else other than himself makes him so lonely until he’s Part Of The Gang and he would totally cringe knowing that but probably also feel a little warm on the inside because of it and I love that Phae was just the best friend to Roan – the main character in Scion but in Bloodlands – she is EVERYTHING I just love where SM Beiko went with Phae’s story and really enjoyed the different perspective she has to everything that’s happening to her and how she genuinely feels about it all – I felt of a connection with her in this book for sure Phae was my number one in this bookAlso – new character alert – I LOVE Saskia the little girl who is hero?villain? – You’ll find out One of my favourite scenes was with her Eli and Roan driving in the car and the feeling it createdMoving away from character growth the enormous expansion of the story was phenomenal Building on the Realms of Ancient and how the Paramounts and their stones greatly affect each other while all being connected in some way was really really cool I was really fascinated by how the story played out and SM Beiko really nails it in the world building departmentThe story itself was well written and fleshed out I feel Beiko did a really good job of “showing” rather than “telling” for her books It kept my mind actively participating and reading word for word rather than just skimmingI think maybe the only thing that I stumbled over from time to time was remembering that Roan's voice was in 1st person while all the other characters voices are written from 3rd personYES I would definitely recommend Although I definitely recommend you read Scion of the Fox before Children of the Bloodlands otherwise you won't have any idea what's going on I would rate this series as a PG 13 between the two of them so far There are a few crude words used but not near enough to flag itHappy Reading
