Accelerant (Abiassa's Fire book #2) by Ronie Kendig

About the book:

He'll destroy the world. But first he has to save it.

The Nine Kingdoms bleed. Leaderless, ravaged, the land awaits deliverance from Poired Dyrth's devastating campaign. But what if one blight can only be cleansed by another?

The promised Fierian is known by many names. Judge. Destroyer. Scourge. And now one other: Haegan, Prince of Seultrie. Once a cripple, now a gifted Accelerant, Haegan can no longer run from the truth. But neither can he be reconciled to it. He knows only one thing for certain: as the only able-bodied heir to the Fire Throne, he must return to the Nine and fight for his people.

But there are insidious forces at work. When reality itself falls into question, Haegan struggles to know where to fight, who to trust. Caught between duty to his country and duty to the world, Haegan must see clearly enough to choose the right path to save his devastated world.

My Thoughts:

WOW! Just WOW!!! Ronie's world building, characters, and good vs. evil in her second book, Accelerant captured me from the first word and held me captive until the last one. The action is one that I have come to love in Ronie's books and it was upfront and present in this book. I literally felt like I was in the Kingdom of the Nine experiencing life with Haegan and his band of characters. 
I did have to read a little slower than normal to keep everything and everyone straight. Once immersed the story took off and I couldn't put it down. I was so immersed I was dreaming about Haegan. This is a perfect series for your pre-teen/teen and fantasy lover. 

First Line Friday - The Mistress of Tall Acre

Since I am celebrating my 10 year anniversary and featuring Laura Feagan Frantz on my blog this week, I thought I'd feature her book The Mistress of Tall Acre.

About the book:

The American Revolution is finally over, and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her nearest neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy, finally comes home to Tall Acre, she hopes it is a sign of better days to come. But the general is now a widower with a small daughter in desperate need of a mother. Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement. But when a woman from the general's past returns without warning, the ties that bind this fledgling family together will be strained to the utmost. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?

First line:

On this day, 8 August, 1778, a child was safely delivered. . . .Nay, not safely. Anything but safely.
