review Emerald Glory Vikings of Honor #2.
Great ending of the second book The hero who we met in the first is great and the heroine has grown too I must say that I still don t understand what s so great about her but the book is really very well written that it aboundantly compensates for thatI m curious to find out what shall happen in the third book since it seems to me the story has ended with this book In this second installment to the Emerald Isle Trilogy the story takes place several ears after the first ended and we come to learn of the fate of our characters How did they overcome such seemingly insurmountable tragedy or have they Can time really heal all woundsAlthough D gan s people still mourn over events long past they have chosen to rise above and rebuild after the devastation that befell their lives Many still have trouble coming to terms with the past and obtaining the much needed and deserved peace that seems to be just on the horizon The next generation is being born and with it comes new roles titles and responsibilities for many of the people on Inis M r Although the Northmen and the Irish have mostly come to terms with their living arrangements there are still inner battles for power Tentative truces will now be tested as new threats emergeIn this story we learn of the man Breand n has grown to be since the fateful decisions he made in the first story Those decisions set into motion a cataclysm of events that no one could have predicted but one thing for Breand n that has never changed is his love for Mara His prayers for one final visit with her have been answered but at what price Before long he finds himself making another fateful decision with again no way of knowing how dire the conseuences will be Mara is struggling to be the parents her son needs her to be She looks for and finds assistance within her island family to help give Lochlann the guidance he needs but something is still missing Tait has a solution he tries to impose on her but Mara knows in her heart it would be a mistake and she uestions if she is ready or even capable of making the decision When news comes of the Connacht king s deadly illness and his invitation for her to come see him one last time she s apprehensive to accept Her soul can only take so much heartache but she is unable to refuse him Mara s growth throughout the story is tremendous considering where she started I have nothing but complete respect for herMuch of this story is about choices and remembering the simple pleasures in life that sometimes get taken for granted as well as resolving to learn from past mistakes and then do better I will admit to being skeptical that this story would capture me as much as the first had but I was blown away by the awesomeness that is Mac Liam Ms Vincent surpassed all of my expectations with her impressive writing abilities while offering incites and revelations that will keep readers coming back for Readers should be warned of the emotional turmoil they will face once again while reading this incredible story I eagerly anticipate the next story in this trilogy Search Marketing Strategies yet already mourn the finalityReview also posted Night Owl Reviews Book 2 Mac Liam 4 starsThis books takes places 7ears after the last It is hard not to give spoilers about book one I will try not toI like that we still follow Mara and the secondary characters from book 1 We also meet a few new ones as well My favorite being Aesa and I forgot his name Deagan s older brother I "Really Liked The Two Of Them Very " liked the two of them very and wished there was a little about them The 4th book which is actually 1 in a new series I believe is suppose to continue his story I am happy to say that this one has a HEA so no worries on that front Our hero in this book is now the sweet and wonderful Breadan Again the hero is far developed and 3 dimensional than Mara even after this being her second appearance in this series I still find her character lacking something that I just can t put my finger on Yes she is beautiful and smart and loving but I find her somewhat bland and flat I got a little irritated at her in this one as due to her lack of action at times and her lack of speaking up especially when Tait confronts Breadan in the longhouse for the first time She seems to always just stand back and watch never trying to intervene At least she does in the endThe story is still very good and I love Breadan he was just so perfect My problem is that I just don t see why Breadan or Deagan fell in love with Mara Maybe I am just used to heroines being active in the conflicts of the books I read Anyway I still liked it alot and cannot wait to jump into the third book of the books I read Anyway I still liked it alot and cannot wait to jump into the third
