Ý The King Commands (Tales of the Borderlands, #2) ò Download by Ý Meg Burden The first book in this series, Northlander, was such a pleasant surprise, and I was very happy to continue on with the second book The cast of characters continues to be complex and intriguing, and the theme of cultural conflict and reconciliation is certainly a timely and timeless one Ellin Fisher is a narrator who is very easy to relate to, and her developing powers create tension within herself as well as with others This series would appeal, I think, both to fans of traditional fantasy and fans of paranormal fiction And there s clearly at least one book to come, which makes me happy.
Initial thoughts on finishing this book YES There is going to be a sequelNo nononono I HAVE TO WAIT FOR A SEQUEL I really don t like Alaric that much What is the big deal about him Gareth is so sweet Finn is ADORABLE I cannot believe that Ellin did not try to heal you know who.
But I understand why she didn t.
Thalia rocks Review This book was just as good as the first one in the series This is definitely not going to be a series that everyone enjoys, sometimes the pacing is a little slow at times and rushed in others, but I love these books Ellin Fisher has been welcomed back by the royal family of the Northlands with open arms Alaric has been crowned king and abolished the cruel segregation between Southlings and Northlanders Though this is a very good thing morally it is also a very unpopular move Ellin is still treated with bare civility in town and there In This Eagerly Awaited Sequel To NORTHLANDER, THE KING COMMANDS Tales Of The Borderlands Book Two, Ellin Fisher, Now A Healer, Must Choose Between Her Love For The Young Northlander King And Her Duty To Her Own People, The Southlings, Who Are Feared And Hated In The North For this second book in the series, I did a read along with my friend Chachic I loved the first book and this book but I am pretty upset with the author Who writes two books, this one with lots of questions unanswered, and then doesn t write a 3rd book This book has been out since 08 and in 9 years she hasn t written a 3rd book Maybe she couldn t but it is the most frustrating thing to not have a finished story This story comes no where near to being done The bad guys are not brought to justice the love story is not even close to completion Our characters story s are not done I fell in love with all the brothers and Ellin and this is a continuation of book one, they are all getting older and the kingdom is in turmoil in the North and the South As they all try to help there people in both places they go threw some interesting growth experiences This is a fun YA series but I can t recommend it because you will Reviewed by Kira M for TeensReadToo.
comAfter healing a Southling traitor s mind, Ellin Fisher is exiled to the Southlands by the Northland royalty Seen as a member of the royal family, however, the king sends the youngest brother, Garreth, to protect her.
While in the Southlands, she discovers a plot by the Guardians, the overseers of the Southlands, to destroy the Northlands and the Southlings who have magical abilities Torn between her homeland and the Northlands she s come to call home, Ellin must find a way to save her Southling friends and the Northland kingdom before it s too late.
This fantasy adventure story is well developed and has lots of action, mystery, and suspense The characters are entertaining and make the story easily addicting Altho After racing through the previous book, Northlander, I finally got my hands on this one Plot wise, this was so much than I was expecting Ms Burden covers in this book then some authors do in an entire fantasy saga I did think the plot felt as though it was spinning slightly out of her control with a few too many characters, and I found the POV shifts slightly jarring maybe they could have been flagged a bit with different headers or typesetting Still though, some beautiful sentences paragraphs that left me somewhat breathless at times A bit rough around the edges and some further polishing and evening out wouldn t go amiss, but a good read.
In spite of the absolutely DREADFUL cover art, I found this book to be pretty entertaining I wish that there weren t so many things left hanging, especially since the third book may be a long time coming, but it was still worth it I think Meg Burden has a very creative world here with the main problems being that the books are too short and too much is left hanging for the next one The heroine is awesome though I really don t understand the whole love sick for Alaric business The other brothers are far better, in my opinion, but I guess that can be chalked up to character development I am looking forward to seeing how this all plays out in the third book which will hopefully be a bit longer than the first two.
Meh I wasn t very excited by the first book in this series, but I did find it to be moderately enjoyable, if not wholly engaging This one was even less enchanting I think the problem is mainly that Ellin gets separated from the princes early on in the story, and their relationship dynamic is pretty much the only thing I found compelling So, take that away, and we have a very mediocre book Add a bizarre major character death which could have been prevented but, for some reason, wasn t and extremely muddled mythology, and we have this bland book There was an obvious, desperate pathetic ploy to extend the story to a third installment, but all that happened is that this book had pretty much no story of its own And I don t know if she was able to negotiate a third book contract, so maybe we re all losers this time view spoiler And apparently Finn is I absolutely loved The king Commands I hope there will be another book added to this series I think the cover art for this book is cheesy and the book deserves better Hopefully there will be another book in the series to tie up some of those loose ends.
