Going to put this right out here. If you haven’t read Moon Chosen, then don’t read this review of Sun Warrior. I cannot review this book without giving away major spoilers for Moon Chosen. Now saying that….I was very excited when St. Martin’s Press approached me to review Sun Warrior. I had enjoyed reading Moon Chosen and I was hoping that I would be able to read Sun Warrior. I was glad that St. Martin’s Press did approach me because I liked Sun Warrior. I do want to warn people, this book is very long. It is 551 pages. But it was worth the 4 days that it took me to read. The character and world building were fantastic. The backstories to each character were rick. As was the descriptions of the world. Everything was multilayered and when one layer was peeled back, another one was there. I love reading books that I can get lost in. If I can picture a world, then the author is doing something right. Usually, I do a summary of the main plot of the book. If I was to outline each one, this blog post would be super long. No kidding. So I won’t be doing it. All I’ll say is that this book will surprise you. I know I was very surprised at the plot twists incorporated into each storyline. Mari came into her own in this book. She went from the shy girl in Moon Chosen to a woman who wasn’t going to let anything hold her back. She assumed the leadership role with an ease that did surprise me because of how she was in Moon Chosen. Nik also came into his own in the book. I do think that losing his father and then bonding with Laru, the Alpha male, was a huge part of that. Having that bond with a Shepherd was what was missing from his life. He was able to take the strength of that bond with Laru and use it to help him in certain parts of the book. He was also a great co-leader with Mari….once he got the trust of the Earth Walkers. Thaddeus scared me. I couldn’t put my finger on what drove him insane at the end of Moon Chosen. When it was revealed, I felt bad and then was a little disgusted. But my feeling bad for him went away when he refused help for Odysseus. Instead, he blamed Mari for what happened. When The Reaper started communicating with him, I wasn’t very surprised. I was surprised that he was willing to hurt his Clan, though. Very surprised. If Thaddeus scared me, then The Reaper terrified me. I was not expecting the author to go in the direction she did with Dead Eye’s storyline. But once I got used to it, I actually liked it. The Reaper was not a good deity. He was the God of Death and he loved it. I do feel bad that Dead Eye got absorbed into The Reaper’s personality. I do think that Dead Eye was not a bad person. He was doing what he thought was best for his people. Then, bam, he gets taken over by The Reaper. I do hope that he will be able to fight his way out of The Reaper’s control and become himself again. The end of Sun Warrior was intense. There was so much happening that I almost couldn’t keep it straight. Not all storylines were wrapped up. Actually, there were a couple of new ones that started right before the end. Sun Warrior also ended on a cliffhanger. I have made my feelings about cliffhangers very clear in other reviews. But this one, oh boy, it makes me want to read book 3!!

Sun Warrior by P. C. Cast is book two in her Tales of a New World series. Not a standalone, so if you haven't read the first book, Moon Chosen, I definitely recommend. Picking up right where Moon Chosen left off, Mari, an Earth Walker and a Moon Woman, and Nik, a Companion and from the Tribe of the Trees, are fleeing the fire that is destroying the forest and City in the Trees. Soon their journey leads them back to Earth Walker territory with Davis, Nik's cousin, and Antreas, a mercenary with a Lynx Companion named Bast. The group are reunited with Sora, another Moon Woman, and other characters whom we met in Book One. While elsewhere the villains of the novel are making their play to obtain the power they crave. Dead Eye and the Skin Stealers, as well as, Thaddeus, a Hunter from the Tree Tribe, who wants to be the leader of the tribe. No matter what. Then lastly, Death. P.C. Cast's Sun Warrior is an engrossing novel filled with detailed description, engaging characters, and a storyline that is building up for an epic third book. Overall, Sun Warrior is a fascinating book which I recommend and heartily await book three. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free from NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

Sun Warrior (Tales of a New World #2) by P.C. Cast I have been drooling over this title for months. It was a treat i was trying to figure out how to afford. I have read the prior book Moon Chosen on the preview site and was left with the need to see the conclusion or continuation of this dynamic apocalyptic dystopian story. Post apocalyptic survival has changed not only the face of the world but divided people in such a way they do not see anything but their differences. The nuclear fall out from the end of the world has caused so much dramatic and inevitable change to the world that survival has changed mankind. We are faced with disease and great abilities that are beyond human comprehension. The diversified world has mankind looking at divisions rather than similarities. Mari and Nik, in the prior book found that their Tribe and Clan are not that different. Not only can they find similarities, find love, and truth in their personal connections, in their personal tragedies, they find that they are beneficial to each other. Those benefits outweigh the cost of their separation. In Sun Warrior, these two characters are challenged to their core. Mari and Nik are tested to their limits, and they are the only ones that may be able to form a new world from the ashes of their old world. It is through their love, understanding, traditions, and acceptance that they can find a new path that will save both their people and maybe the world in its entirety. This book is only the next stepping stone on an adventure that will change lives, not only of the characters but the readers as well. This is a great young adult book, that shows that everyone has talents, and those things that separate people are only in our mind not even skin deep. P. C. Cast has challenged the youth of today to look at the divisions in our own society and question if they even matter. In today’s world it is great to hear a voice like this, and to know that i have a story that shows differences in a way that no one can label themselves one side or the other, but find champions in those who find acceptance, love and compassion.

Sun Warrior picks up right where it left off in book one. The Companions, the Earth Walkers and the Skin Stealers have all experienced changes in different ways. The references to some of the previous events are helpful to refresh the memory, but this is not a standalone. Mari is getting stronger in her new found abilities and now that she can show her true self, she is a lot more confident. She stands up for herself against the oppositions without losing sight of her compassion. First and foremost, she is the Moon Woman and the healer. Nik is still grieving, but his growing bond with Mari and Laru, his companion give him strength. His tribe is in terrible disarray and he would like to see better changes from the old ways. Unfortunately, there are those who take advantage of the situation to stir up trouble for their own gain. Together, Mari and Nik make a decision and for the first time they start something which nobody would have ever envisaged. It's only a start though, with a long way to go. Antreas and his lynx, Bast make a valuable contribution to the story. The background information about the make up of their "chain" is rather interesting. Sora, too has grown for the better. Dead Eye's "experiment" is paying off. For his gain and the tribe's detriment. His own new experience brings about some drastic and dangerous changes. Thaddeus is greedier, more cruel and intent on creating discord. He wants power! This installment starts at a good pace and slows down towards the middle. When it picks up again, it becomes a compulsive page turner. It's a great concept and the characters are very well portrayed. I found it to be more gruesome than the first installment, but still fascinating. It's full of suspense with more death and destruction. It seems to be going in the right direction and ends with the promise of more exciting times. I would recommend to fans of fantasy, paranormal and romance. I was kindly issued with an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
