In Jewel by TK Rising, the second book in the series, we find Blue Star triumphant over the mighty Godriel, but still left unfulfilled. She yearns for a Universe filled with lush, bountiful lands and blue skies but most of all, Blue Star longs for a daughter. Even though she was victorious over Godriel billions of years previously, her request is continually denied. But Blue Star is ingenious and quite creative when it comes to getting what she wants. Her wish is granted and her miracle daughter, Jewel, is born. What fate will befall Jewel? The epic adventure begins as Jewel becomes embroiled in the center of a battle for ultimate control. Blue Star must pay a hefty price for her actions and discovers her triumph over Godriel was simple in comparison. Blue Star faces her toughest battle yet; if she is unsuccessful, she may lose Jewel forever.
It is difficult to summarize the plot as it is as unique as it is compelling. I was certainly not at all disappointed. The tension and adventure throughout will keep your heart racing. The characters are rich, memorable, and their dialogue relays their personality perfectly. Although there are many characters within the plot, it is easy to follow and the conflict kept me continually engrossed in where the story would take me. The storytelling ability of the author is of an incredible standard. She has created a strong main plot supported by enthralling sub-plots that gel together effortlessly. I absolutely loved this tale of revenge, retribution, love, and betrayal. This flawless novel is a must for lovers of fantasy, science fiction or quality fiction.
