Empire of Shadows Reviews
This is really a 3.5 star review. It is a solidly written book, its well edited and I liked the characters and story. But the story took a while to build, and I felt dragged on too long. I liked Mara, and Emil very much. I also enjoyed several of the secondary characters, but I am just not sure I will pick this up and read it again. I am glad I read it, but I needed more to be happening, or more world building, something was just lacking in the overall book that made it hard for me to feel like I was there.
Fantastic world building, strong characters, and fast moving plot make this book a much stronger work than Forster's City of a Thousand Dolls. I love that this is a companion book and that each book stands alone. In this book Forster really shows her skill at character development. It is unusual for a plot driven novel to have such strong characters, but Forster manages to really make her characters feel real. Other reviewers have described the plot, so I won't bother. I just want to say that if you like books with complete story arcs you will enjoy this book.
An excellent story and perfect prequel for City of a Thousand Dolls. I recommend this saga to my grandchildren, your children and all parents/grandparents who enjoy reading beautifully written young persons story.
This was a great read! I was happy to read the story of Nisha's parents! You'll love the story and the beautiful world Miriam Forester created!
My sister loved this....shipped as described.
I love the cover. That’s the only positive thing that I can think of about Empire of Shadows. Although it’s already the second book of the Bhinian Empire Series, it’s actually a prequel of book 1, A City of A Thousand Dolls. It tells the story of Mara and Emil Arvi, the deceased parents of our protagonist in book 1, Nisha Arvi. While I don’t have any issues with that, I still can’t understand why it was necessary for this book to exist other than vex the readers maybe or milk the cow some more.
