Read this review and at FaerieFitsThis book was originally read and reviewed in April 2016As this is a uartet of books that I listened to back to back I'm keeping my reviews in a format designed to highlight developments in each of four categories plot pacing world and characters In each of these categories I'll only be discussing what's relevant to that specific book so as to keep these from being too redundant Plot I was simultaneously and less intrigued by the plot of this book than the previous one It's clear that the First Truth is something really important that was evident in the first installment This book is focused around learning why it's so important but mostly consists of character world development than major plot development The end packs one hell of a punch on the plot front but the development is relatively slow Pacing So I kind of already touched on this This book still feels like it's moving in general Whereas in the previous book Bailic was busy trying to figure out who the Keeper person who can actually do magic was in this book he thinks he already knows and is much less of a bother The movement here comes in trying to keep up the ruse with Strell pretending to be learning and Alissa actually learning There's also a sense of suspense driven by trying to figure out what Useless is obviously not telling Alissa it's not exactly a surprise or difficult to guess but it certainly does build up some tension World We learn a LOT about how magic works in this world through Alissa's lessons with Useless a Master of the Hold his name isn't really Useless but that's what Alissa somewhat affectionately calls him We learn about fields and tracings and the whole magic thing really does take shape as something that makes sense something that I love to see in fantasy novels It isn't left completely ambiguous for us to figure it out on our own Likewise it's not revealed to us as readers as if it's something important it's a rather natural revelation Characters Strell and Alissa are entertaining and somewhat adorable as usual but now we're introducing another male and forming a bit of a love triangle one that ought to prove interesting to follow I don't want to reveal too much than that Suffice to say that I love how the relationship is developing and it's been entertaining to get some of Strell's perspective that Alissa is completely oblivious to regarding this newcomerThis review was originally posted on FaerieFits

E learned magic from enigmatic Masters Under the tutelage of the last surviving Master Alissa discovered that she had inherited her father's magical abilityBut the Hold is ruled by Bailic the renegade Keeper who seized the First Truth a book of magic he will use to harness the might of the city of the dead and wre. I knew this would be the book where we settle down and learn some magic and though I don't follow at all anytime an author tries to explain the practice of magic like she does in these books I still like to see the inevitable mistakes and victories I liked the odd tension of Balic and winterforcing Alissa and Strell to stay basically as prisoners but they have some freedoms unlike Useless did in his cage While theoretically enemies it's company for Bailic who has been alone a long time and most of the time Alissa and Strell are safe and comfortable than they were in their respective poor households It's like the building of a very dysfunctional family though clearly it's building towards it's own demise When I finished this book I thought well that was good but do I need to read the next one Then I read the back of itshapeshifting time travel I thought for sure it would have too many gimmicks and would ruin the series but gave it a chance and ended up liking it even better

Summary Hidden Truth (Truth, #2)

Hidden Truth Truth #2Ak a war of total devastation The book has thwarted Bailic's every attempt to access it while it continually calls to Alissa who must summon all her will to resist it For if she gives in to the First Truth's ultimate power and knowledge she will be utterly changed and the man she loves could be lost to her forever. The second book of the Truth series picks up where the first one left off I did not like the pacing of this book at all and I got tired of Alissa being a special snowflake that can break all the rules It felt like the villain of this book should have been dealt with far earlier but instead it turns into a long drawn out affair that does not make any sense The magic training was good but the extra focus on the budding romance and perhaps even a love triangle was disappointing
