Editorial Reviews

RT Reviews - Joan Hammond
“The second novel of the Mystic Isles series is pure Rice. With her whimsical and very subtle touches of humor along with memorable characters, she cleverly blends the paranormal with the historical events of the French Revolution in this passionate and very sensual romance. Her powerful voice and talent as a great storyteller makes her books keepers.”

    I received this book through Librarything early reviewers in exchange for an honest review I was also able to review the first book in the series as well which was really good. This second installment of the series is good but did not enthrall me as much as the first I felt that it dragged on a little. I can't quite put my finger on it but something was missing for me.
    But all in all it was a good book a cute YA/Fantasy/Historical romance. I like how the author incorporated historical events seamlessly into this world of her creation. But I did not find the lead characters in this book interesting. Ian and Chantal were missing some of the "umph" that Mariel and Trystan had in book 1, in comparison I just felt Mariel and Trystan were much more interesting and more likeable. I found Ian and Chantal a little boring.

    I also did not like the cover the cover on book one was much better.

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I was excited to receive this book, the description sounded interesting. The author has a great style and great descriptions. And while it was interesting in places, there were places it seemed to be drawn out. If this was condensed down to a novella I think the story would be more captivating. That being said - I am looking forward to more from the author and reading more in the series.

    an engaging romantic fantasy

    Due to his visions the Gods assign Sky Rider Ian Olympus to travel to the outer realm in order to find and return home with the sacred chalice of Aelynn. He also knows that French revolutionary musician Chantal Orateur Deveau, who possesses the chalice is his soulmate having seen her in a vision and kept that lovely sight in his dreams.------------------ Ian arrives in dangerous Paris where the Revolution has taken hold. He finds his woman who quickly reciprocates his attraction. However, before he can return home with the chalice and his soulmate, someone steals the cup as the streets turn deadly and bloody. Afraid for Chantal¿s safety Ian must choose between the quest and the woman he plans to marry although he fears his people will reject her as his 'amacara'-------------- The second Mystic Isles tales (see MYSTIC GUARDIAN) is an engaging romantic fantasy in which French Revolution plays a powerful perilous backdrop to the encounter between the lead couple. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Ian knows who Chantal is, but though she reciprocates struggles to persuade her they belong together. Readers will appreciate this entertaining quirky tale of love amidst the quest for the chalice while revolutionaries are shouting off with their heads.------------- Harriet Klausner
