    Disclaimer I know this author personally That said I approached this book as I would any other author I might readWow What a rush I think I connected with this book far strongly than I did the first book Forgotten My biggest complaint with Forgotten had been the romance I know it's a strong theme in Pauli's books but I think it fell a little flat in Forgotten Not so here I was so entranced with how she handled the romance in this one that there were times toward the end I felt like crying As I'm in the same kind of relationship where two hearts beat as one I understood how the characters felt and I thought she portrayed their coming together so wellWhile I thought the beginning was a little slow I understand why she handled it that way While the main character Maera is familiar from the last book she was a minor character back then The change in viewpoint to her is a little jarring and though understandable with what happened to her in the past she's a bit of a downerThe other main character Tal is amazing I've heard other people talk about just how much they love him and I didn't understand exactly why until I read this book Pauli does a fantastic job of painting goblin or gobelin as she calls them life with a richness and complexity that she only hints at through Maera's interactions with them I found myself wanting to know about them as time passed Sadly my curiosity wasn't completely fulfilled but I guess that's what seuels are for right?Though I've been reading this in fits and spurts for about a month whenever I have a little free time I gained momentum toward the end because I almost just couldn't put it down There is some solid action as there's a fight toward the end and the bonding of Maera and her love is just so touching I knew there would be the return of an old familiar face but even though I was prepared I didn't know how it was going to be handled The reveal was just perfect Horded is one of the best books I've read in a while I enjoyed it immensely and I can't wait to see where Pauli goes from here I have no ualms at all about giving Horded a five star rating For anyone who is a fan of the fantasy genre this is a must read

    Horded is the second book in the Kingdoms Gone series I have read the first book Unlikely but I think most readers should be okay reading this one with reading the first The book takes place five years later and follows Maera from the first book – a side character There are a few references that might not be as clear to someone who has not read the first However you shouldn’t be completely lost by itIf you plan on reading the first book you might stumble upon some spoilers belowCharacter The book is written in third person following Maera and Tal Maera is a human that was last seen in the first book Unlikely She has left Westwood behind and now resides in Ramstown Maera has feelings of guilt and repentance at the beginning of the book and throughout She is just starting to find her place in a town that ignores and scrawls at her With only one friend she starts to consider her future Suddenly she is thrown into the world of gobelins when one stumbles upon her call her “tir talus” Tal is a gobelin who is down on his luck always outshined by his brother Torg During a hunt he finds himself at a castle with a guardian a gargoyle who bows to him He considers the prophecy but is attacked by another band of gobelins before he can do anything else Maera Tal and Torg enter in an adventure between understanding their place in the world and overcoming feelings of inadeuacy The characters were well written I did wonder what happened to some of the characters at the beginning in Ramstown when the book ended It is possible that this will be picked up in the third bookPlot The plot was uick and easy to read The meaning of tir talus is not explained right away or the prophecy You’ll just have to have patience The book like the first did not dive into the Final War or terms such as Shades but they were not central to the plot The switching of characters’ viewpoints only minimally overlapped in some places – basically summarizing their view of things in the last few minutes before the narrative switch The story kept me interested and I think I enjoyed the workings of this plot better than the firstBottom Line Overall I enjoyed this book and will wait to see what happens in book 3 If you like fantasy and adventure with gobelins witches imps and gargoyles you might like this book

    Review Horded Kingdoms Gone by Frances Pauli Oh I loved it It was sosweet and fulfilling A great adventure yet a touching love story I loved the way the Tir Talus is explained depicted I can even ‘hear’ the strong beating of their hearts at times Such an unlikely match yet strangely perfect Maera wanting to atone for what she considers her sins and Torg so big and sure of himself But my favourite character is Tal He is just sohuman With doubts and insecurities and such love for his brother Torg And so untrusting of Maera but so will to tolerate her for Torgs sake I love that by the end of the book they are an inseparable family standing firm in the beliefs and love for each other And I am so glad that Maera had the respect she deserves now And I love the Sol buta and Gutra and Sorin is very brave and noble But what I am most pleased about is Henry He sounds so cute For some reason I picture ‘Toothless’ from How to train your dragon each time I think of him A brilliant ending and just one suggestion to the author Please let Henry sit on Vane It can be by accident or on purpose either way a wet spot must be all that is leftThis is an honest review I downloaded the book from for free

    This was my first read by this author and luckily i didnt read the spoiler reviews prior to reading it I dont write spoiler reviews so you will have to read them separately As for the author wow and I do wish authors would uit doing this to me and forcing me to start reading a book in the middle of of a set cause now i have to go back and then forward anyway yes this book reads as a separate story of its own but the end leaves some uestions but not many what happened to the little boy?????? recommended for anyone looking for a little something different to their YA reading given for review
