The story really centres on Muna and Sakti, who find themselves on Janda Baik (the island where Mak Genggang is from), but they don’t remember anything about themselves.
The plot of Sorcerer to the Crown is mainly straightforward. It’s early 19th century (or so I guess because of the references to Bonaparte) and there is a noticeable decline in English Magic. Zacharias Wythe, the Sorcerer to the Crown needs to discover what that’s all about.
Like the two previous novels, the author takes elements of fantasy and mixes them in with the real word. In this case it’s Mayan gods alive in Mexico during the jazz age.
Phyllis reminded me of Reggie from The Rewind Files, though if anything more fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pantsness. But delightful, flawed, tough, sarcastic and with a deep sense of fairness and faith in her friends. Sarcastic lead characters win my heart every time.
Storm of Locusts is the sequel to the amazing Trail of Lightening by Rebecca Roanhorse. If anything, I think it’s better than the original, but that might be because I know the world and characters. It was a bit stressful in the middle, but has a thrilling conclusion.
Usually I am delighted and besotted by a story, but I think this story is being caught in a dizzying and compelling spell that won’t let you go.
The plot revolves around Ava, a young woman who can create and control fire. She has been forced to work for the Coterie, a magical mafia headed by a psychopath vampire named Venus. They have a flashy bar, ooOOOOOoo.
