Synopsis:

Having barely escaped the clutches of the Guard, Sefia and Archer are back on the run, slipping into the safety of the forest to tend to their wounds and plan their next move. Haunted by painful memories, Archer struggles to overcome the trauma of his past with the impressors, whose cruelty plagues him whenever he closes his eyes. But when Sefia and Archer happen upon a crew of impressors in the wilderness, Archer finally finds a way to combat his nightmares: by hunting impressors and freeing the boys they hold captive.

With Sefia’s help, Archer travels across the kingdom of Deliene rescuing boys while she continues to investigate the mysterious Book and secrets it contains. But the more battles they fight, the more fights Archer craves, until his thirst for violence threatens to transform him from the gentle boy Sefia knows to a grim warrior with a cruel destiny. As Sefia begins to unravel the threads that connect Archer’s fate to her parents’ betrayal of the Guard so long ago, she and Archer must figure out a way to subvert the Guard’s plans before they are ensnared in a war that will pit kingdom against kingdom, leaving their future and the safety of the entire world hanging in the balance.
 


Review:

Thank you Penguin Teen for sending me copies of The Reader and The Speaker for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

The Reader and The Speaker are so lyrically written. I loved the entire concept of the book and was drawn by that alone. Then I started though it was Traci world and character building that kept me intrigued all the way till the end of book 2. 

The Speaker was even better then the first. I am so in love with a good villain and this book had more action and dived more into Archer and I adore his character as well. There are a few new faces to the mix and I look forward to them tying in more to the final book.

Overall both these books are must reads for fantasy fans and for readers in general. There is power in reading and you just need to dive into Traci world to discover the power.
