Overview

Get a degree, get a job, save adorable foster siblings from the clutches of the evil foster mom ... These are Jocylene Sanders' top priorities as she enters her sophomore year of college. The last thing she expects is to find herself the champion of an entire kingdom. However, that is just what happens when the mysterious Faerie, Rothatin Longspear, appears to her, tasking her with saving a parallel world full of creatures from her wildest dreams.

Jocylene journeys with him into the world of Fallada, hoping for answers about her birth parents and background. What she finds is a mystifying past, and an even more uncertain future, as her heart becomes entangled with the stoic, battle-hardened Rothatin, as well as Eli, the untroubled Panther Shifter with no loyalties and no home. With her heart and soul pulled in so many directions, can Jocylene find the strength needed to become the savior one nation so desperately needs?

This story was even better than Daughter of the Read Dawn! We are greeted by many old "friends" and meet some new ones on this new adventure. The story was a bit more emotional in feel than Daughter of the Red Dawn was. Here we not only have our found princess, but 3 small orphans she cares for as well. The under currents of this story are sad, but there's plenty of moments that will make the reader smile, a few that will make the reader sad, and a couple that will make the reader angry. Eranna is at it again, this time her target is the Dwarf city under the boarder of Mollac. Jocelyn, the younger daughter of Mollac gains some invaluable allies including our Damu princess friend Eladria and her husband Titus. Rothatin's attitude takes on some strange twists in this one that will surprise the reader. But nothing will surprise the reader more than Jocelyn's story which is splashed through the entire book with a twist so drastic the reader will be slack jawed for awhile. This is a great installment to this series, and I truly look forward to the third installment which if I'm not mistaken is where we'll meet our underwater princess from the Kingdom of Zenun. Keep up the amazing stories Alicia! I give this book 5 of 5 paws

Reviewer: Bex Rating 4 out of 5 Fairies I thoroughly enjoyed Alicia Michaels' latest installment in her The Lost Kingdom of Fallada series. It was a great read and was once again a book that was well-crafted and easy to absorb. The main character Jocylene was a character that I enjoyed from the start. I was able to empathize with her and readily wanted to follow her journey. Her journey, just as book one, is a pretty epic one. The author creates such a vivid fantasy world, it's impossible not to get caught up in it. Also like book one, there is a clear romance running through, yet remarkable and refreshingly, the author doesn't follow the same pattern. She really mixes it up with book two. We are introduced to the strong and determined Rothatin, who is a fierce and loyal warrior. We are also introduced to Eli, a complex, yet utterly gorgeous shifter. Cue fireworks and frustration! I was most definitely left wanting more, yet I was also a little frustrated with the development of the relationships between the characters. There's a major build up with an inconclusive ending. yes, this left me wanting more, but it also left me feeling a little disappointed. I eagerly await book three. Disclosure: This book was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

I have no idea why I kept putting the reading of this series off, I even went out & brought the books after reading book 1 the first time. What can I say about 'Child of the Sacred Earth'???.... hmmm well I'm kinda kicking myself from not reading it earlier as Alicia has done an amazing job continuing on her "The Lost Kingdom of Fallada" series. Please if you haven't read the prequel 'Beyond the Iron Gate' or book 1 'Daughter of the Red Dawn', do so immediately. The prequel gives you an amazingly beautiful story & more indepth history of Fallada & book 1 is the start of the prophecy. Jocylene is a sophomore in college, her life revolves around finishing her degree, getting a good job & legally getting her foster siblings away from their evil foster mother. Jocylene has known she is different from an early age & has practiced her powers for years. Then a boy she goes to college with attacks her, then attacks her home... but things are not what they seem to Jocylene, leaving Earth for Fallada with her foster siblings in tow, her life changes for ever. Alicia has weaved a compelling, enthralling tale, it had me at the prologue & gripped me until the last line of the epilogue. I love how each book in the series is another piece of the prophecy, each princess has her own book. The Kingdom of Fallada is described so vividly, so are all the characters... it takes me into the books completely when I'm reading. Bring on book 3, I can't wait to read it!
