Hey Awesome Peeps!
This review is from the second book in “The Enslaved Chronicles” named Mage Strike and written by R.K. Thorne. If you have not read the first book, please do so. Now lets start by reading the description from goodreads.
The hard part should have been over. Former slave Miara and Crown Prince Aven have escaped with their freedom and their lives. From kidnapper and captive, they’ve grown into a powerful partnership. And they’ve returned to the mountain fortress of Estun, triumphant, to warn his people of the rising menace just across their border.
But escape was only the first step. War looms. Hundreds of mages still live in slavery. Neither the king nor the queen believes the people will support a foreign spy as crown princess, no matter how loyal Miara truly is. And enemy agents plot to keep Aven from the throne by any means necessary, be they mundane—or murderous.
On top of it all, the Dark Master has plans of his own: to enslave a vast mage army bound to his will alone. To obliterate all knowledge of the forbidden star magic, no matter the cost. And to get a little revenge too, while he’s at it.
Powerful new enemies, tenacious new allies, and earth-shaking magic join Aven and Miara in this second volume of the Enslaved Chronicles.
First off I need to say this. This book, the second of the series, is ten times better then the first. I could not stop reading and the story was amazing. I want Miara to marry me. Her character development was awesome, but of course I can’t because she likes Aven, and I don’t live in a fantasy world. This book as made my heart rate speed up so many times for different reasons. I can’t wait to read the third book of the series. I love the mixture between action, politics, and romance. There is really good balance in this book. Even if you might not have liked the first book, I would still recommend you read the second because it is ten times better. I have to give this book a gigantic 5/5.

Hey Awesome Peeps!
I chose this book for my first review since I just finished it a few nights ago. Please note that there might be spoilers in my review without me even noticing, but I will do my best to hide the obvious spoilers. Consider yourself warned, ha ha. Since this is the first review on my blog, I will explain how I will write my reviews. First, there will be a description of the book (from goodreads) to let you know the back story, and then my review will be at the bottom. Please criticize/comment my reviews, or any of my work by leaving a comment it helps a lot. You can also subscribe to future posts at the bottom left of my website page, and you can also see the book I am currently reading at the bottom right.
A warrior prince, a talented spy. A quest to free an enslaved people begins.
Crown Prince Aven Lanuken wants something more than a trophy for a future wife. He wants a woman who will be more friend than follower. A queen who will be more warrior than diplomat. He wants a partner he can trust… with a dangerous secret that’s kept him trapped in a dark mountain fortress his entire life.
Mage slave Miara wants something more, too—to find an enemy prince. And not to marry him. She’s just received orders for her very first kidnapping. She loathes the idea of it, and it’s probably a suicide mission. But she has never failed a mission before and doesn’t intend to start now.
Of all the women in the world, why does he have to fall for the one trying to kill him?
Magic, politics, love, and fate collide in the destinies of two people in this fantasy adventure from R. K. Thorne. For lovers of swords and sorcery with a side of romance, Mage Slave is the first novel in the Enslaved Chronicles trilogy.
I will say that this book impressed me a lot even though the name is really horrendous. The writing in this book is not that complex which would lend me to believe that the author’s target audience is for pg+ but I definitely wish that the author will pull more toward adult fantasy like game of thrones in future book.This book definitely had the mixture of criteria that I was looking for in a fantasy book. Sword fights, magic, love story, and good humor what more could you ask. You guys definitely have to read it, it is quick read but a sick one. I literely could not put the book down at the last 25%. Can’t wait for the next one! I will have to give a big fat rating of 4/5!
