Book two of The Seeker’s Burden Series continues the story of two men forced into separate attempts to seek the truth and save all they know. The enemy has succeeded in gaining a foothold in the north and there are whispers of an internal threat in the capital of Astar Terrace. In the aftermath of the northern battle, Prince Ethan and his comrades have been forced apart, left to piece together remnants of hope from unlikely sources. Oliver continues to wrestle with a lack of guidance as he and the Goblin brothers make their way out of the Shadowmyst Mountains towards the only place that can give them the next sign. Hope struggles to grow within the young man, but what waits for them may crush it completely.
I’m glad to say that the second installment in ‘The Seeker’s Burden’ series by Mark E. Lein is as good as the first one.
We’re immediately drawn back to the story. There’s action from chapter one to the very end of the book and once again it ends in a moment that leaves me wanting more and more. Bonus points for a short summary of what happened previously at the beginning, it really helped remembering the details.
I’m enjoying every page of this series and I really hope that it won’t change in book 3!
