The second book in the Her Instruments series by M.C.A Hogarth The story picks up about a year after the first book Reese goes to a remote colony in hopes of doing some business but gets caught up in their troubles and Hirianthial is kidnapped once again During this he discovers he has some powers he didn t know about and needs to seek counsel from his people Reese realizes this and contacts her benefactor I liked it for the most part but hated that it ended in a cliffhanger The good news is that the next book has already been published and I did not have to wait for it.

Overall, I think this was a much stronger book than Earthrise there s a stronger throughline for the story when a speculative trade trip to an out of the way planet lands the crew in the middle of a civil war, and then they go from the frying pan into the fire when they journey to the Eldritch home world to get Hirianthial some desperately needed tuition for his esper abilities and get caught up in politics that might just be another civil war on a far worse scale Big political changes near the end nicely set up for the next book.Besides the plot feeling less like a fixup of unrelated stories, the characterization feelssolid though most of the crew still doesn t feelthan sketched out to me I liked the slow changes in Reese s character, though I would have liked them better if there wasn t a neon sign pointing at look how much she s changed every fifty pages or so Hirianthial changed as well, but he didn t get that as much, and I m not sure how much was the book and how much was reviewers that seem to really dislike Reese for some reason but sometimes I felt like Reese s character was a problem to be solved in a way Hirianthial wasn t, despite their changes often mirroring each other.Big trigger warning for sexual assault about halfway through the first section the book isn t split into chapters to spoiler with a littledetail for those who need it, this is a male aggressor assaulting Hirianthial Also content note for incest between the Harat Shar siblings on the crew which is still present and normalized as well, and characters talk about their expected future children. This story picks up about a year after Earthrise Reese and the crew are hoping for a little less space pirates this time around and some peace and quiet Well, we know that s not going to happen This time, they end up on a mission to help their space elf friend, Hirianthial, who reminds me of this guy The crew ends up on the sexy space elf s home world because he has some issues he needs to work out with his mind mage mojo stuff The Eldritch planet is like a regency novel, with a ton and lords and ladies and no electricity They be riding horses like Except instead of the cute little doggy, they have these Because you know, aliens and sci fi and stuff Although these books feel a lot like high fantasy mixed with sci fi Sci hi fantasy But no electricity No indoor plumbing And they hate outsiders But the Queen is a forward thinker and has a special plan to bring her people into the modern world and it includes Reese Our slightly grumpy and people hating captain ok just most people, a woman after my own heart gets caught up in all the DRAMA There is a good spattering of it too So, anyway, here are the pros and cons Pros1 Reese has growth She was slightly irritating in the first book, but she realizes her flaws and begins to work on them So GOOD 2 Great world building 3 The author uses many words I had to look up Smart words Ohhhh I like.So smart.4 Supporting cast which makes up the Earthrise crew are just so darn lovable The tiger brother and sister are funny and loyal and let me just say I find it cool how the author chose to make them horny for each other since it s part of their culture and natural instincts to bang like bunnies, but it s also a little And the phoenix is cool He s aloof, but a badass And then there s the one I can t quite picture a cross between a centaur but with paws and has both feathers and fur She s cool 5 I liked the queen and the other cousin or sister or whoever she was the pregnant one.Cons 1 Pacing issues.2 Drama.3 The Eldritch are boring and act like this all the time 4 There was a LOT of talking talking talking and I just wanted a bitsomething, like, to happen 5 Then, it finally exploded and the villain was so villainy and predictable eh.6 Cliffhanger Not the worst one, but still.So, okay To wrap this up, not a bad book at all by any means I actually liked it I just didn t love it What can I say I ll still read the next one The MacHalos made me read it. 4 A buddy read with the wonderful MacHalo Freaks We love Elves in space This was different I am not even sure what category I should shelve it under, so I went with Sci fi Fantasy, since it is a space Opera with genetically engineered creatures, most of them derivative of Humans and Animals, and few from Humans and Fae folks from the fairytales One of those legendary races are the elusive and mysterious Eldridge They are so rare and their mythology so vague, that they have become a primary target for the Dragon Slavers who want to find, enslave and subjugate their world And they have targeted a specific Eldridge, the one who travels with the human Captain Reese and her crew of cat people, a Phenix and a centaur like feline scientist Let s not forget the pet sized plant like entity who switches color depending on mood and can act as a calming influence on everyone around I want a Flitzby so bad So, after visiting a horse raising Humans on a Faraway planet, a bad experience brings on some unexpected and unwanted telepathic abilities for the Eldridge and the whole crew heads up for the hidden Eldridge Planet Little do they know about the political machinations and powerplay going on in court and how they will be used as a spark to start a planetary revolution in which the planet and our crew will have to make alliances and embark on a flight for their livesThis series is very imaginative and the creatures absolutely stunning This being the second book, it reads much better andcohesively, the story building in layers and ending on a cliffhanger which is forcing me to start the next book right away Speaking of, what am I doing still writing I have volume 3 to read Now I wish you all Happy Reading and manywonderful books to come
