Tellus

Queen Natylia has a responsibility. Araenna deserves to be ruled properly and to be led to greatness. However, she has found something that could bring an end to everything. She however has a few people she could count on. With their support she will hunt down the scepters and bring them to an end before everything goes awry. Will she make it before the four titans find freedom? Can she finally forgive and love again? What will become of Araenna?

Tyffany Hackett has done a wonderful job with Tellus, the second installment of the Thanatos trilogy. In Imber she introduced the readers to all these wonderful characters and the kingdom. In the second installment you get to dive even deeper into Queen Natylia’s kingdom. The author does a commendable job of gripping the reader right from the beginning. The cliffhanger at the end is both frustrating and simply delectable.

I recommend reading the first installment of the trilogy for a better experience. The first one sets the tone and prepares you for the intensity and action that is in this second one. You should brace yourself for delightfully surprising twists and turns. It almost seems like this author is orchestrating ordered chaos in the chronology of events. I felt deeply committed to the success of Queen Natylia’s mission.

A study of the cover art alone will leave you feeling a need to explore further. The character sculpting in this book is top notch. There is a wonderful sense of love and warmth despite the crisis that threatens existence. Queen Natylia, while faced with obstacles, remains steadfast and brave. The author details all of this characters emotions and inner turmoil throughout the entire process. The same multi-dimensional character build applies to other characters like Jyn and the others. The author gives readers a chance to get to know the characters and understand their journeys both as individuals and as members of a group.

You will be deeply content with everything from the plot to the characters to the masterful writing. The only down side is that you will be giddy with anticipation awaiting the third installment in the trilogy. Tellus sets the bar for the third book very high.
