share with you The Jade Bones by Lani Forbes
The Jade Bones
This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.
Based on ancient Mesoamerican legends and mythology, The Jade Bones picks up right where we left off in book one. So I went back and reread it the Seventh Sun to refresh my memory.
A fast paced compelling adventure that builds up and keeps you on the edge of your seat. That leads up to a to a heart stopping climax! If you enjoyed the first book than you are in for an stellar mythology.
Mayana and Akin have to travel the underworld to find the Lords of the Dead. They face many challenges as they take the journey meant for souls on there way finality.
Facing trials and near death escapes they find themselves not knowing if they should trust each other.
Can the Goddess be trusted, the tale weaves from above and below. Mayana’s royal blood controls the power of water, and Prince Ahkin wields the power of the sun itself. Together they tackle obstacles that bear down on them, and challenges standing in their way. Surviving her own test, Yemania becomes a high healer by the new empress of the Chicome Empire.
This was a riveting absorbing book, with great dual POV’s.The characters growth is exceptional and I found that I have switched my preference from one of the main characters from the previous book to another. The world building is wonderful and the authors writing insures the reader is fully invested in the storyline as it unfolds.
