I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review. This is the second book in a YA series for children aged 9 to 16. I really enjoyed it! Kiera Matthews is a wonderful character. She is a typical young teen with hopes and dreams. I liked her very much. She is kind, caring and sensible. However, after meeting Zakk, a prince from Zantar, a parallel world, and battling the Witch Queen there, Kiera is now struggling to come to terms with the loss of her friends, Joe and Daz. This is a fantastic continuation of the series. I loved visiting these characters again. I was hooked from the first page of the story. It is told through several character's points of view, which made it interesting. I did miss the old version of the evil Witch Queen, though; she didn't seem so intimidating in this story. Maybe it is because she had been severely hurt and damaged by Kiera in their battle. She did terrible things, don't get me wrong, but her personality seemed more subdued. However, that being said, there are plenty of twists and turns in the story which took me by surprise. The scenes are all well described and I felt like I was there, watching it unfold. I was saddened when Joe was kidnapped in the first book, and angry at the Witch Queen for torturing and brainwashing him in this one. But I was totally shocked at one major revelation that I certainly didn't see coming regarding Kiera, and it completely floored me! I found myself on a roller coaster of emotion and even shed a few tears throughout this book; there is deceit and betrayal mixed in with loyalty and love in this tale. Unfortunately, I reached the end of the book all too soon, and I could have screamed in frustration; I groaned instead! I felt like I had only just started to read the story when it finished. I know this book is aimed for younger readers and I am an adult, but I thoroughly enjoyed journeying between Earth and Zantar. I am now looking forward to continuing the series by reading Perceptions as soon as possible! Kristy Brown has written a fast paced YA story that was entertaining and exciting. I loved her writing style, and the flow was wonderful. I highly recommend this book to middle grade children who love action, adventure and fantasy. I also recommend this book to adults who love to read younger YA fantasy novels. - Lynn Worton

On your mark, Get set, aaaaand WE’RE OFF! At a blistering pace of adventure, action and danger, Kiera and Prince Zakk are crossing realms to save Kiera’s friend from the villainous clutches of the Witch Queen. Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices by the wildly creative Kristy Brown continues Kiera’s quest to discover why she has been chosen above all others to be a hero. With the bravery and pace that only a youth could maintain, Kiera is learning that many lives are counting on her victory. What of Prince Zakk? Are his eyes wandering? Will jealousy cause Kiera to lose concentration on her “mission?” Filled with losses, discoveries and the ever present battle between good and evil, this fantasy read is sure to ignite the imaginations of young and old, alike, because really, doesn’t everyone wish they had the guts to traverse an active sewer? ;) Kristy Brown has, once again created a fascinating,Tween/Ya read that is filled with colorful scenes, a cast of original characters and a plot that spirals around just enough to keep answers just around the corner! Written with bite size chapters that create even more intrigue and make for a great starting and stopping point, Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices is the perfect answer to a wonderful summer read.

Kiera’s Quest Sacrifices By Kristy Brown Kiera had escaped the clutches of her enemy and thought she was safe again and home. Now she is told that she needs to go back and rescue her friend and in the process she will discover more about herself than she may even realize. . Returning once again to Zakk’s kingdom Kiera and Zakk must again face the enemy. This time the enemy has an even more diabolical plan and she needs Kiera and Zakk to complete it. I loved reading Kiera’s Quest Sacrifices and learning even more about Kiera and Zakk. Kiera stands strong in what she knows is right and through her belief in right despite what evil throws at her Kiera knows she has to win. You have to read Kiera’s Quest Sacrifices to see how she does it for yourself and while reading it you will join Kiera on an adventure you won’t want to end. Again a five star read from Kristy Brown.

 After their tangle with the Witch Queen, Kiera and Prince Zakk make it out alive but lose friends.  When Prince Zakk asks Kiera to help him save Joe and Daz, she jumps at the chance. She can't imagine life without them.  They know it won't be easy because the Witch Queen is sure to be watching for them, but with some help, they just might be able to rescue Joe and Daz and save themselves.  They never expect life changing secrets to be revealed.      Amazing! This book takes you on a journey you won't soon forget.  The characters are well developed and easily relate-able.  The story is so well written you'll be lost in the pages in a good way.  I recommend this book for all tweens/YA.  It will keep them interested in reading for sure!  Gift this one and book one, to the tween in your life!      I found no issues with this one.      I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 simply because it really isn't my cup of tea but the book is fantastic!  Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

Sacrifices is another short, intense read from Brown. The story picks up right where Awakenings left off and we join Kiera and Zakk as they go back to his world to save her friend. We get introduced to new characters in Sacrifices that will make or break this quest to save Joe. Will they be able to save him before it is too late? Or was this quest doomed before it even began? Brown is a wonderful story teller and seeing the worlds she has created for this series is truly fantastic. Not only do we have Earth and Zanter but other worlds as well are all connected through vortexes, making for a very interesting read. But that ending is what made the book. WHOA! Didn't see it it coming. This series really is a great read for any age reader. From MG to YA, readers will be drawn into this fantasy story thanks to its fresh story line and terrific characters. I do suggest you read both Awakening and Sacrifices back to back. Because with this being a short story…it doesn’t leave the author much room to do some replays you might see if longer books catching you up on what happened in the last book. But I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a fun, quick read. With it only being 70 some odd pages long...you won’t put it down until you are done.
