    November 2019 I still absolutely adore this As with its predecessor, it just gets stronger upon rereading I love that Nora dedicated an entire volume of this trilogy to the childhood and growth and training of The One It s a great coming of age story that emphasizes how much hard work The One must put in before they are ready to lead the charge of light to save the world from the dark Community and family remain important building blocks in Nora s world, and I love that she shows how the id November 2019 I still absolutely adore this As with its predecessor, it just gets stronger upon rereading I love that Nora dedicated an entire volume of this trilogy to the childhood and growth and training of The One It s a great coming of age story that emphasizes how much hard work The One must put in before they are ready to lead the charge of light to save the world from the dark Community and family remain important building blocks in Nora s world, and I love that she shows how the idyllic doesn t come easy, but demands effort from every member of the community I love the magic here, and how light magic demands sacrifice and rewards those who put others before themselves I also really love how much this is inspired by Irish mythology while still maintaining its originality As with Year One, I m keeping my original review untouched in its original state Without further ado, here is what I thought of the book upon first reading it in December of 2018.Original review I am completely blown away by Nora s newest venture Chronicles of the One is a perfect blending of post apocalyptic dystopia and epic fantasy The fact that Nora, after decades of writing romance laced with tendrils of the supernatural, would take such a giant leap into writing a radically different story, is commendable The fact that she not only pulled it off by absolutely nailed it commands respect She has mine Of Blood and Bone picks up a few years after the end of Year One We see the One grow and learn and near their thirteenth year, when they must leave home and beginning their training in earnest The training sequences and quests that the One must complete are the elements that reminded me so strongly of epic fantasy Here, in the midst of rusting cars and cracked asphalt, we are shown a magic that is wild and mysterious and is somehow seamlessly joined to the broken world from which it sprang While magic is almost an entity in its own right, those that use it learn and grow in their knowledge, which I always loving seeing in a novel As with all of Nora s novels, the relationships are the backbone She excels at creating families of both blood and choosing I m not going to get into any relationship in particular, because honestly any name I list is going to be a spoiler for the first book That s why I refer to the One as they instead of assigning a gender, as even that is a bit of a spoiler What I will say is that beauty arose from the ashes of Doom in the forms of families and communities The bonds developed through shared trauma are oftentimes deeper and stronger andenduring than their sunnier counterparts, and that depth is well demonstrated here Besides the radical genre shift, there is also one other difference in this novel as compared to the rest of Nora s work there s not a single sex scene There are a couple of steamy kisses, but that s it From someone who built her career on romance, I thought this exclusion was a pretty shocking decision, but it absolutely works with the story This is due in part to the ages of the main characters, which was another kind of different narrative choice for Nora while adults are around and play important supporting roles, kids are undoubtedly the stars As with the first book, there was no central romance However, in this book we can see the foundation of what looks to be an explosive romance playing out in the final installment I have no negatives at all in regards to this novel, and found it to be even stronger than the first installment of the series My one and only complaint is that I have to wait until November 2019 to see how the story ends I feel like this is a trilogy that can both draw in new fans who prefer fantasy to romance, as well as pushing current Nora fans out of their comfort zone into new genres I can t recommend it highly enough, and will be counting down the days until I can get my hands on The Rise of Magicks You can find this review andat Novel Notions

    This series has a continuous story arc and the books cannot be read as standalones If you haven t read the first book, Year One, don t start here.The story resumes years after the last book where Lana s child was identified as being The One and she escaped after the attack on New Hope That child, Fallon Swift, is approaching her 13th birthday, the age when Mallick, the visitor, promised he d return to the farm and take her away from her family for training As that date looms closer, Fallon This series has a continuous story arc and the books cannot be read as standalones If you haven t read the first book, Year One, don t start here.The story resumes years after the last book where Lana s child was identified as being The One and she escaped after the attack on New Hope That child, Fallon Swift, is approaching her 13th birthday, the age when Mallick, the visitor, promised he d return to the farm and take her away from her family for training As that date looms closer, Fallon and her family make the most of their time together Meanwhile, the residents of New Hope have created a viable city and formed close relationships as the country has not emerged from the apocalyptic effects of The Doom Kate s twins, Duncan and Antonia are now teenagers who have mastered their gifts for the benefit of the town and beyond and are vital to their continued development When I learned that Roberts was creating this series, I worried that she might not be able to pull this off This story continues the excellence of the first, with minute attention to detail, lore and fantasy while keeping the focus in the realities of the present day What s also remarkable is how effectively the human condition is woven into the character development, clear lines between good and evil but also the acknowledgment that our natural human instincts don t necessarily have us fall definitively in one or the other It s a very complicated, dangerous world but hope sits beside despair Most of the story is Fallon s narrative but we do get others points of view exactly when I felt I needed them Julia Whelan delivers such an outstanding performance I had to remind myself that she was the only narrator She doesn t resort to attempts at baritone for male voices and yet I recognized the gender every time My decision to listen to this series was one of my better ones as she just makes a great story even better Fallon s maturation and honing of her gifts, skills and temperament wasinteresting than I d imagined I loved Mallick and how their relationship developed and shaped I don t want to divulge muchabout the story but rest assured there s plenty of excitement, intrigue, tension and even romance as she connects with New Hope There s one particular scene that can only be described as spectacular with a huge twist I was left in a good but uneasy place and am excited about the final chapter to come in this fascinating tale I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review
