3 out of 4 stars

Personally, I would recommend reading the first novel in the series before you read this one because you will get a better understanding of the characters and only then can you fully appreciate the character development that occurs in this book. However, you could probably still enjoy this novel by itself, especially considering the author includes a brief summary of the first book in the beginning of this one. I found the synopsis helpful even though I have read the first novel. It never hurts to be able to refresh your memory on the last book’s important events.
The plot of this novel was certainly engaging and it had everything anyone could ever wish for. There was action, romance, fights, getaways, and even magic. Every aspect of this book is masterfully connected, even the minor characters or events that you think only serve as a distraction, turn out to be some of the biggest game changers. My favorite thing about this book, is that all the female characters are strong and independent. Even when they fall in love with men, they are not reduced to stereotypical swooning maidens. This novel shows that women can be fierce and independent without having to also lead a solitary life. Additionally, the author is very realistic about the benefits and the faults of both sets of communities. In no way is either society perfect.
After careful reflection, I decided to give this book 3 out of 4 stars. The reason I did not give it the full four stars is because there were certain plot lines that I felt had little to no progression in this book. As a consequence, it felt like the author only introduced those plot lines for another novel.
This compelling book has a little bit of everything in it, therefore it would be an enjoyable read for anyone. I have previously compared the first novel of this series to The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin and The Eclipse of the Zon - First Tremors just solidifies my opinion about its resemblance. With the inclusion of magic and various so-called gods in this sequel, it is sure to appeal to fans of the famous series.
