Jahrys Grent, now King of Astenpoole, is faced with restoring Astenpoole and cleaning up the Junkland. While King Jahrys reshapes the kingdom, dealing with lords and knights, word of another sorceress, Emilia Danell, reaches Astenpoole. Preparing for another fight, Jahrys worries that Emilia comes for the same reason as the previous sorceress, Nadia Danell.
Once Emilia reaches Astenpoole, Jahrys quickly realizes things are not as they seem. With nightmares plaguing him, and a power he doesn’t understand, The Lost Soul takes Jahrys on a quest beyond the Western Mountains and into his destiny.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a book review, and I am honestly honored to be part of this book tour. It was actually a bit challenging for to do reviews lately since my job could go insane and I literally don’t have time for everything, but joining in this tour made me more focused on reading again which I enjoyed. Reading the two books reminded me on how fun it is to have other things to do aside from work and I’ve got no regrets on stopping work just to read this.
This book have three (3) character point of view and a lot of other character names involved on each chapters. Readers will know each and everyone of them eventually as they go along and read the book *wink*. Each characters are interesting and they have a fair contribution in the story and the readers will love them, some will be hated but, that’s how books goes right? Focusing on the main characters: Jahrys, Emilia and Piller these three makes the book interesting and worth reading. Their stories makes the book alive, the flashback makes the book interesting, that makes you understand the characters more. Jahrys, being the new king of Astenpoole, a new role and responsibility for him, is he the sorcerer they expect him to be? Emilia being the Sorceress who wanted to revive a lover, will she be successful bringing Belvadere to life? and Piller, the captain of Knights of the Poolesguard, will his worries about Astenpoole fades away, will he turn his back?
This book has it’s big twist and it gave me chills! Like for real though! It makes me even more excited for the third book! Tell me there’s a third book… I can’t wait for this one. The return of one person from the previous book changes everything! This makes me want to reveal!!! But.. I can’t, I just can’t, LMAO.
I’ll end my review here now before I spill some more spoilers. Once again, I’m glad to be part of this book tour. I’d love to be part of the tours again and read more books on free time. I also want to congratulate the author for doing Junkland and Lost Souls, both books are amazing and I can’t wait to see those in a local bookstores specially here in the Philippines.
Readers, enjoy The Hoarding series! No regrets on this one *winks*
Patrick Johns is a wordsmith who grew up in Ramsey, New Jersey, where he would play for hours in his basement with his dino-saurs, and out back in the woods with his imaginary friends in imaginary worlds. He has been writing since he was young—creating worlds and drawing the made-up characters within them, but his imagination was put on hold while in college.
Patrick is a graduate from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and a second de-gree in Mathematics. While he is doing very well, he never forgot his imaginary friends, and always imagined bringing their world to life in a novel.
Upon graduation, Patrick’s wonderful parents took him to see Aladdin on Broadway, one of his favorite childhood stories. And yes, it is his dream to one day soar high into a diamond sky on a magic carpet, singing a beautiful duet with someone he just met and fell madly in love with! After the play, Patrick’s creativity sparked and he started writing again to make this dream come true—as well as his childhood dreams of imaginary worlds.
Junkland is his first novel, now available on Amazon. The sec-ond novel in The Hoarding series is underway, with the third soon to follow.
