Review: Foretold

Foretold Foretold by R.J. Crayton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's more of a 3.5 read than a 4. This book read better for me than the previous one. Also it seems I was wrong in thinking this was going to be a trilogy, because based on the ending it very clearly is not.

Big pluses: more world building - with more attention given to building on previous work done in the series. More depth given to the characters, the introduction of a new character and Khady losing some of her whiny edge.

The alternating chapters between K and A helped the story pick up some much needed pace, and get the ball rolling. Getting more of the events that shaped some of the characters and their choices was great. Elements of the potential love connection felt a bit forced, but I appreciate that it's not at the top of the protagonists mind. It's amazing to have a female protagonist who focuses on what needs to be done, instead of just the guy.

The ending is slightly cliffhanger-ish, but there is enough resolution with other aspects of the story that it doesn't feel horrid not having the next book.
