Publisher's Summary

In the second installment of the A Fire Beneath the Skin trilogy, Rina Veraiin has youth, beauty, and strength. She is a born warrior, able to outride any man, deal death with her fierce blade, and command awesome and mysterious forces granted to her by a set of magical tattoos. Now as the newly minted duchess of Klaar, Rina confronts a menace that threatens her world in a divine conflict that will push her newfound abilities to their limits.
As sinister and magical forces unite against her, Rina's only chance at stopping them is to gain new tattoos that will increase her powers beyond anything she has known before. United with her few trusted companions, she makes her desperate quest across a bloodshed-ravaged land while war brews among the gods.
With the enchanted world of Helva hanging in the balance, Rina must learn to wield extraordinary power to save herself and her people, before unimaginably powerful forces - and the savage fury of the gods - tear apart the land forever.

Incomplete Story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

First of all, Fiona did a great job with her narration. I enjoy this series and where it seems to be going, however, this particular book (Book 2), seemed as if it ended in the middle of the story. I'm sure that the last book will probably complete the story, but it seems like Victor wanted to maximize profits, so he split what should have been one book into two books, leaving the first book incomplete. Well, the last book will be out soon. Let's see how the story ends.

This is not a novel

First, I want to start off saying that the first book in this series (Ink Mage) is amazing. A great 5 star novel. Wonderful world building, interesting plot, great characters (for the most part), and chalked full of fulfilled promises. This...I don't know what this is. A lengthy unedited first quarter of an unfinished first draft? There is no real plot (at most we're only given a small portion), no character growth, and absolutely no fulfilled...anything. I really can't imagine why Mr. Gischler decided to release this in its current state or how an editor could sign off on this as a whole. Don't get me wrong, this isn't the stereotypical, "this book has a cliffhanger so I'm going to whine about it not having a proper ending" review. I'm fine with cliffhangers. The giant problem here is that there wasn't enough story to have a cliffhanger. This ending was more of a: "plateausitter." We barely made it to the second act. Honestly, the best word to describe how I feel after 10 hours devoted to this piece, of writing, is: unsatisfied. I don't know if I'll read the 3rd installment; maybe after reading a lot of reviews first.

PS. Fiona Hardingham did an amazing job narrating, as usual!
