True rating: 9/10 Insight Kindling starts off right where we left off with Travel Glasses, which was amazing since I started Insight Kindling within the same hour I finished Travel Glasses.  I read a few other reviews before writing this one, as it's pretty complicated to review a sequel without making it very much alike to the first. I ship Ray/Calla plenty more than I do Calla/Valcas. I find Calla/Valcas very weird, especially by the ending of this book, Calla's reaction to Valcas confession thing was very unreal, overdramatic and a bit childish. As mentioned in my review for Travel Glasses, we grow to dislike Valcas, then he turns out to be good and Calla begins to swoon? It was too quick. He kidnapped, terrorised and stalked you Calla! Yet she still likes him, and gets extreme when her heart gets broken by Valcas. Valcas was so caring for Calla through this novel, I liked him. Then this action, this STUPID action which he believes is to protect Calla, it ruined it for me. I don't like Valcas anymore, especially after the epilogue. Valcas became something we call Jerks. He kissed her, leading her onto a romancy, we can be together now, then it switched around. No. No romance. No "we can be together". Its all, "your life is too short compared to mine, its not worth it, go love this guy instead." I understand most of Calidora's reaction to this, but I don't understand how she came to love him so quick. Oh, and when Valcas said he would do anything to regain her trust, or something among the lines of that, WHAT A LIE. Ray was always sweet, always charming and smart. He is a complicated character, or atleast I predict he will be in the next book. Ray was very kind to Calla ever since the start, Calla had a liking for him.  The novel began to lean towards more of a romantic theme than the sci-fi.  There was a bit of repetition with certain scenes and dialogues. However its is still a quick and gripping read. Dessalls writing was just as smooth and simply followable as the first novel. I hate Calla's father. I cant stand him. He is so annoying, has no clue how to be a father, really pisses me off. Plaka (Callas Father) gives no thought to his actions at all, or he is just so very selfish. I cant. I cant come to liking him. An example is that when he reunited with his daughter, his reaction is to get angry at Valcas. Plaka even critiques Calla! There was never any fatherly moments, there were times when Calla would start one, but Plake would just shoo them away. Calla continues to develop, my linking for Calidora expanded into another world. She is a complicated character yet easy to empathise with. Heck, even I felt deeply betrayed by Valcas. Ivory is introduced in Insight Kindling is is truly a character anyone would come to love. She is fun to read about, has plenty of talent, along with wit and quite the humour.  World building was perfect in Insight Kindling. I absolutely loved the fire falls. That whole setting was vivid, was so damn original. Just like the story, so damn original. I look forward to the next book in the series as this was an amazing continuation of Travel Glasses.

Insight Kindling, The Call to Search Everywhen 2, Chess Desalls Genre: Teens and YA, fantasy/paranormal. Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Some YA reads contain a story that appeals to all ages, the only difference from adult reads is that the plot is solid, but the text is easy to follow and this series is proving to be one of those. Like part one this episode is well written and intriguing, it caught and kept my attention right through, and was what so often appeals to me about YA, a great story and relaxing to read. I certainly want to know more... Poor Calla, she faces charges against her for changing the past, even though she had no idea what she was doing, and didn’t go there voluntarily at first but was forced in to it. The part that affected Edgar was deliberate, but the thing that changed Valcas past wasn’t even her fault, except that she was there and shouldn’t have been, and he saw and fell in love with her. That caused him to write her name on a photo, and so remember her even though at the time she knew nothing about it. Usually everything is lost from peoples memories at the end of the day, so permanent changes that affect history are very severely punished by the TSTA. She ends up on a dangerous mission to find her father, along with Valcas and two other travellers, Ray and Ivory. That gave an insight into different talents, as Ivory was a Chauffeur, and Ray had an incredible memory and could recall conversations, record scenes so that everything that happened he could voice, and even collect measurements and data....amazing Talent to have, but it caused him some horrendous trauma on these travels. Ivory was great, she seemed quite a cynic at first but as the group spent more time they became very supportive of each other. The romantic in me got its way, with Valcas trying to win Calla’s trust again, and of course the attraction between them is strong, she fell in love with the past version of him and now he seems to be getting closer to that more than the somewhat aggressive cynic he seemed in the last book. We learn too more about his actions and how they could be interpreted differently. The four have an amazing adventure, learn how to work together and Calla finds out she has a new Talent...of course they’re in danger all the while from the being that’s been pursing Calla, and will kill her if it catches up. The danger they faced felt very real, and while they were learning more about each other I was learning more about this strange world and how its created. I’m still puzzled by parts of course – it’s so very different from most paranormal/fantasy reads but great fun. Its a fabulous escape from reality. Stars: Five, a fun read. Not sure I’d reread, though I’m sure someone closer to the target market would read over and over. ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers

I liked this book even more than the first book Travel Glasses.  Almost right from the beginning you can see how much Calla is growing as a person.  She’s realizing the consequence of her actions.  Because she was having all of these realizations I felt much more of a connection to her.  We also got to know Valcas better though I was still left with tons of questions about him.  I’m still not entirely sure of his intentions.  A lot of his behavior from the first book isn’t explained all that well.  The new characters that make up the team for the dangerous mission Calla accepts are awesome.  In many ways I like them more than either Calla or Valcas.  The world building wasn’t as extensive in this part of the series but it was adequate.  I admit I was yearning for a bit more actual time travel but I don’t necessarily think it would have fit with the story.   The ending though, gosh, the ending.  I very nearly threw my tablet across the room.  I’m in very deep need to find out what’s happening next in this series.
