Traitor's Son by Hilari Bell My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When the girl at the Canadian border tosses Jase the medicine pouch he suspects she is giving him drugs, but little does Jase know that the little pouch he caught while trying to evade gunfire at the border would change is life forever.
When I read Trickster’s Girl last year I really enjoyed the story, but had my doubts when I heard the sequel would feature a new main character. Kelsa was a fun character, I liked her and had a hard time imagining the story without her. Jase surprised me though. Not only could I connect with Jase as a character, I really think I enjoyed his story so much more. Jase’s story is about family and the rift that has torn his family apart. While he resists learning to heal the leys, he also resists healing the rift in his family.
Raven is back, too, for this sequel, but instead of appearing as a handsome young man, he is now appearing as a beautiful Native American girl. I love Raven, the trickster, and it was fun to see what she would do next to try to get Jase on her side.
The conclusion to this series is stunning and one you don’t want to miss. As I neared the end of the book I couldn’t put it down because I was hooked.
Great characters, great story, nonstop action, and adventure, plus a family you could really care about make this a great read. Bell is a fabulous writer. Her writing style pulls in the reader and invests them in the story from the very beginning.
Overall, fans of Trickster’s Girl won’t want to miss this second installment, but if you haven’t read the first, I recommend you go out and read it now, because the second shouldn’t be missed.
