From the title of the first chapter, Day Two, The Second Heart captured my imagination and swept me away. I literally could NOT put it down. EA Kafkalas created a feeling of mild confusion and tension in the beginning that catapulted me through to the end. The amazing part is she also develops a very beautiful love story in the midst of all this excitement. The characters are so well developed and the events, though fantastical, feel so real I felt I was running with them. This one is too good to give any plot points away, other than to say that you will be surprised at the twist and turn of events. Once you scratch the surface, you will realize that EA Kalfkalas has also just challenged your thoughts about love and parenthood, and asked you to really grapple with difficult issues of war, the use of military force, and the question of how we treat others we consider different from ourselves. Beautifully written with a language that flows like water from the page to your heart.
The Second Heart is E. A. Kafkalas' first foray at Science Fiction. And it's a good one! Self proclaimed as Lesbian Fiction one of the main characters, Kate, is in the military. The other main character, Alexia, has a very different kind of military background. Instantly we have tension! At the heart, no pun intended, of every Kafkalas novel there is always the importance of family. The Second Heart is no different. Family strife and familial love all play their parts. The situations and characters are so real I forgot I was reading science fiction. Dialogue and description are two of Kafkalas' fortes. I always find myself lost I. The world she creates while simultaneously rooting for the happy ending. Happy ending or not, she does not disappoint. I am an avid fan. Note: I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
