Bakkian Chronicles, Book II - Insurrection by Jeffrey Poole

5 stars

Bakkian Chronicles, Book II - Insurrection by Jeffrey Poole is the second book taking place in the world of Lentari.  When Steve gets a message from the world of Lentari he and Sarah know something is drastically wrong.  The Queen has been kidnapped!  They decide to head back to lend their powerful jhorun's to the chase.  Leaving Mikal with Sarah's sister Annie and Trisan, his bodyguard from Lentari they hop through the portal and return to the magical land.

The action in this book picks up much faster than it did in the first of the series.  Since almost of the characters have been introduced you are dumped straight into an exciting chase as Steve and Sarah try to stop the kidnappers before they reach the border.  The second in the series keeps all the strengths of the first and Jeffrey has grown a bit as a writer leading to a more polished book.

This book appeals to the same audience as book I although I believe there was a little bit more profanity this time.  No f-bombs or anything just a few more swear words used.  I am going to be looking forward to the third book in the series with a great deal of interest.  Jeffrey has created a truly wonderful world populated with interesting and believable characters.  If you have even the smallest interest in fantasy pick up the first book in the series and you will get sucked in.

  1. Imagine my surprise to see my own book looking back at me when I checked your blog this morning. Very nice! Thanks for the exposure!

    I had a blast writing it, and having an even better time (if you can believe that) working on the third book in the series!

  2. So the third should be out in the next week or two? I chased that little white box down and destroyed it too. Forgot about that lol.

  3. LOL! And a week or two for book III, huh? Ummmm, might be a smidge longer than that!
