Hi, hello, it’s me. Back again with this series. If you haven’t read my review of the first book, Savage Lands, definitely go give that a peak. Otherwise, let’s hang out for a few and talk about how I could not put this book down, so help me.
In “Wild Lands” the second installment of the Savage Lands series, Brexley finds herself in the company of the fae lord, Killian. Her loathing of Warwick Farkas only continues to grow the longer her incarceration continues. Some good, strangely enough, does come from her imprisonment. Chiefly a better understanding of the world around her. One that has her wondering if the Fae lord is really that bad. Peace is a tenuous thing at best, and Brexley’s life is thrown into another whirlwind putting her squarely between warring sides. Unsure of which way is up or which way is down, Brexley has to begin untangling the truth from the lies before the wild lands chew her up and spit her out.
First things first, I am absolutely in love with Brown’s writing style. I adore the structure, the voice, the cadence. It’s all very her. It seems to flow more organically in Wild Lands than it did in its predecessor, Savage Lands. I loved the dialogue, I loved the pacing, the flow. There was a good balance of hurt and elation. A lot of times, books will leave you suspended for (too long) in a state of distress and gut you. In those instances, I find it impossible to continue with the story. Brown has perfected the precarious balance that keeps you emotionally invested, and emboldened enough to carry on with the read.
I’m not going to lie to you, I sat down and read these two back to back. And as soon as I finished Wild Lands, I picked up Dead Lands and started to read that.
I’m incredibly excited about this series. It grabbed me from the first few pages in the first book and has held me hostage ever since.
Not for the first time, and certainly not for the last, congratulations Stacey Marie Brown on a job well done.
