The Jode: Part 2: Awakenings Reckoning
PJ Selarom, author
War looms... Gen. Ygl of the Lorel Elves and a few allies suffer through various forms of awakening as he attempts to forewarn more Zaendaran estates about the Jode’s impending danger, from the Giants’ scented plantations to the Ogres’ stony empire. He suffers more than the rest struggling with his identity. Will they rise above their revelations or drown in the deluge? The awakenings’ reckoning will astonish all—and leave many wishing for an end as Xurchon's evil influence grows and grows. And, war looms...

Assessment:

Plot: A character-driven fantasy adventure sequel. The novel moves quickly through a quirky adventure, while a larger world menace looms. The plotting is exciting and well crafted.

Prose: The novel features some creative descriptive writing that effectively illustrates a storybook setting. The dialogue is full of banter that enhances the characterization, while the novel utilizes and identifies, to good effect, vocabulary unique to the fictional universe.

Originality: The fictional universe is detailed and consistently realized. The play between plotlines is clever and engaging. The novel’s established world is comfortable alongside fantasy contemporaries and inspirations, but stands on its own as an original concept.

Character/Execution: The novel features many characters whose stories began in a previous installment. The book is centered around a band of adventures, and their camaraderie is a strength of the novel.
