Review: Second Sight by Sherry D. Ficklin

Second Sight: The Gods of Fate Book 2 by Sherry D. Ficklin

*** I was fortunate and received a digital ARC from Sherry in return for an honest review.  (She is also offering free e-books for my giveaway in May! Stop back for the giveaway - May 1-8, 2011 - it will be international!!!)

186 pages - available at both paperback and Kindle formats!

Amazon product description:
When the man Grace Archer loves is pulled into the Underworld, she will stop at nothing to get him back. Her quest is complicated by the fallen god Samael, who is on the loose with a dangerous relic that puts all the immortals in jeopardy. With her powers on the fritz, Grace must help track down Samael and retrieve the deadly Eye of Hera before any more gods fall victim to his madness. Daughter of the Greek Goddess Pandora and the Greek God Prometheus, Grace must dig deep to find the power she needs to infiltrate Hades and convince the God of the Dead to release Chris. But when you make a bargain with the devil, you pay with your soul. [Book II of the Gods of Fate Series (Young Adult Fantasy) released 2011 by Dragonfly Publishing, Inc.]

My thoughts:
I have to admit that for this one - I was not hooked from the start!  I thought I was, until Chapter 3!  When I thought, "NOOOOOOOOOOO, not that!" I put the book down for a good hour before I HAD to go pick it back up and finish it!  Of course, then I had to read through to the end! Great story - can't wait for the next one!!!!

Sherry Ficklin creates wonderful characters.  They are realistic enough to relate to and imaginative enough to inspire you.  She puts her fantastic characters into situations and settings that keep you turning the pages.

It was great to see all the characters I loved from the first book again.  It was interesting to see the relationships involved in this story - - - Hades...a loving husband!  

This installment of the Gods of Fate series is filled with questionable behavior, wonder, deceit, sacrifice, love, trials, sorrow, and mystery.  I can't wait for the next book - Hind Sight!

*****my favorite quote from Second Sight******
"It's like she's a part of me.  Like we're connected.  She breathes in, and I breathe out."
