Freed (Phoebe Meadows #2) by Amanda Carlson is even better than Struck

Freed (Phoebe Meadows #2)

Finally, the second book is out and I will probably start the next review with the same sentence. Amanda Carlson has a way of writing that draws you in and you never want to get out. Same as Jessica McClain series. I will not lie to you, there is a sort of cliffhanger, but I hate that word, so let’s call them loose ends. I think it is the author’s style to tie up some loose ends, and right before the end, she creates some new ones for the next episode. Because that is exactly like her books feel, like chapters of a larger story. And obviously, now, it is a bit frustrating waiting for the next book but the plus is if you are one of the readers coming later, you will have all of them at your disposal. This is not a collection of a standalone novels set in the same world, this is a series of stories about Phoebe Meadows, her adventures, and her friends and family.
The book itself is even better than the first one. Phoebe is getting stronger and more skilled and we get to know her better. She embarks on an adventure with Junnal we briefly met in the first book. Along the way she meets several new and very interesting characters. She is wonderfully victorious against all odds and she becomes more sure of herself and more independent. We see less of Fen in this book but he is still here and still wonderful.
Again, I loved this book and I can’t wait for the next one and I hope there will be a lot more after that. I wholeheartedly suggest this series, starting with Struck. The characters are strong and well developed, the world is interesting and it draws you in, and the story is gripping and it keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last page.
