Once she finds herself back in Arah Byen, the adventure continues with many plot twists and turns and some really suspenseful moments. It is easy to re-immerse yourself back into the story with The Subverter, although it isn’t quite as captivating as the first book in the series.
Throughout the story, it is impossible to know if the ending will be a happy one, and I found myself anxiously turning the pages to see if everything turned out the way I was hoping it would.
Perhaps because Down a Lost Road set such a high standard, I found myself a little disappointed with this book. It wasn’t bad at all, and is still leaps and bounds ahead of similar free Kindle books I have read, but it just didn’t captivate me quite as much as the first book.
All in all, I would rate this book at four stars, and I would definitely recommend it as an easy read for anyone interested in fantasy novels. Despite its slightly weaker finish, I would look forward to reading a third installment, which could be an option based on how this one ended.
