Snow Jewel is the second fascinating addition to the Jewel Chronicles by Natalina Reis. There is so much happening in this brilliant fantasy- from action, adventure, drama, danger, interracial romance, prejudices, intolerances, superstitions, intrigue, suspense, Gods/Goddesses, and intriguing twists and turns.
This is the second book in the series and does follow on from the story in book one, so it would be advisable to read the first book before embarking on this journey. The foundations of the storyline, character information and world development/building all begin in Desert Jewel- so having all that information will enhance your reading experience of this story, and allow you a more immersive encounter with the characters and their interesting world.
I really enjoyed Desert Jewel, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the second book had been released. I wasn’t sure where Ms. Reis was going to take us with this story, but I was excited to find out and I have to say that I enjoyed it just as much as the first one.
Ms. Reis writes beautifully, and her talent is very apparent throughout the book. The characters are charming and endearing, and the world in which the book is set is vibrant, with exquisitely detailed imagery- I think the characters and wonderful world building are what really sets this story apart from others.
I was captivated by what I was reading, following along to discover how everything would play out. The concept is quite unique, interesting and has been executed beautifully. The author did a great job of infusing quite a lot of emotion, tension and romance into the story.
I can’t wait to see where the story goes in the next book- the third and final instalment of this wonderful series!
Thank you, Ms. Reis!
