THAT THE PLOT HAS BECOME Athe plot has become a darker then the first book I was not expecting those plot twists and my heart hurts so much for these characters I just want them to be happy I cannot wait for book 3 I m shaking in anticipation Though suffering a few minor plot conveniences CHAINBREAKER is a vast improvement over its predecessor with high stakes great cast epic action and a sizzling climactic ending Better writing developed characters and deepened lore all make this a fantastic readLooking forward to FIRESTARTER Received an eARC This one was missing the relationship element that made the first book so strong I ll probably read the third book when it drops in pric Okay first I love the adventureHoly sht the adventureNext I love the HUGE character developments And I can t say about that without my will power crumbling down sooo I ll stop there before I start screaming out pure smoldering spoilersBut Please Please Know that the feels were oh so very realI also need to mention how well this book builds A House Built out of Stone up the feeling ofrgency That s not easy to do and I have to acknowledge the fact that this writer had me right nder their thumb I can t tell you how many times I had to force myself to slow downAnd now of G with his father and exploring his relationship with Colton he'd have some time to settle into his new life Instead hes asked to investigate the attacksAfter inspecting some of the fallen Indian towers he. I have been waiting forever for this book and it was worth the wait Now I have to start waiting all over again for the next one I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves books with a little romance but mostly action Reasons to Love Colonial Indian setting Foreign clock towers Expansion of the time based magic system New romantic sub plot New friendships Characters Colton and Daphne are added to the list of main characters in this book and the multiple POVs are handled well We also get a whole host of new characters and the Indian representation is on point The new friendships and relationships add interesting angles and complexity to the overarching plot Plot The plot and world building are both expanded pon in wonderful new tangents in the seuel The story has a lot of elements and isn t as tight knit as that of Timekeeper s which disappointed me The setting of Colonial era India is presented with all its intricacies and the author does not shy away from showing the brewing tension and gliness of that time period Writing The writing does show improvement with the pacing issues from the first book fixed in this one Colonial India is a tricky setting because of the layers of nuance that is needed to accurately portray it but Tara Sim manages it ite well I found only one portion towards the end iffy when there was a British vs Indian conflict which could have been avoided by a few plot alterations Verdict CHAINBREAKER is a solid book in the exciting YA fantasy series TIMEKEEPER However the story suffers a little from poor plotting and wasn t as enjoyable as the first book I will definitely get to the third book soon to know how the series wraps No Gentleman for Georgina (The Notorious Flynns, up as the overarching plot isite promising I thought that Chainbreaker really built on the foundations laid out by Timebreaker taking its wonderful concept and layering on the mythology through Colton s increasingly relevant dreams The plot this
Time Feels A Lot Grander Ambitiously Widening The Scope Offeels a lot grander ambitiously widening the scope of tale The setting is no longer focused on a small English town but instead Thin Blue Smoke uickly relocates to India It is here that the terrorist acts take on a new scope as tensions rise between the Indian people and occupying British forcesThe most fascinating thing about Chainbreaker is that it is a novel about shades of grey While a character early on emphasises the importance of putting the needs of the many first Dannyickly realises that life is rarely this simple It s one of those stories where villains are not necessary evil people Sometimes they re just normal folks who are pressed to make difficult choices And I personally found this to be tterly compellingHowever the book still felt to be a little slow moving and simplistic on the whole While there were some twists in the tale I was disappointed to find that some of these were a little too well signposted to be fully surprising While the book was never boring and kept my attention throughout it did seem to be lacking in action at times It wasn t ntil the final 20% that the plot really picked Restoration up pace and becametterly compelling but then it ended on a rather abrupt cliffhanger that left many plot threads hangingIn terms of character the book is still really strong While it has a huge secondary cast it only really focused on a handful of core characters Danny and Colton s love is still central to the story and as sweet as ever While the two are separated for a large portion of this novel which could disappoint fans of their romance from last time this did give ample opportunity to explore each of them individually Personally I thought that this was a great idea as it particularly allowed Colton to stand on his own and revealed a lot of his backstoryI was also pleased that Daphne got a lot to do in this book Her plot is largely centred around discovering about her heritage as she builds a firm relationship with Indian pilot Akash I was really glad that she finally got fleshed out but I was disappointed. Clock mechanic Danny Hart knows hes being watched But by whom or what remains a mystery To make matters worse clock towers have begun falling in India though time hasnt Stopped yet He'd hoped after reunitin. Ourse I have to mention the FEELS once
