To Be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles Book 2) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Erica Shoebridge

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The long-awaited sequel to the Fae Queen is here! I was happy to delve back into the world of Aubren in Middle Earth to see how Queen Tatiana is faring. She is a young, forward-thinking monarch, with strong opinions of unity that shock and irritate the ‘old guard’ of Fae. Though she is deeply committed to protecting her realm, not all of those in power support her views on how to accomplish this. When she is accused of treason, her power to save the realm is compromised, and she struggles to save the Fae even in the face of punishment. She is smart, driven, and brave, and with the help of her friends, hopefully she can save everyone in time.
I found this book a bit difficult to get into at the beginning, but I was glad that I stuck with it to get to all of the action and excitement later in the novel. This could also be because I have the plague so it was hard to concentrate! Regardless, Copeland is a good writer with a compelling story and set of characters, so anything written by her is a good bet to be interesting.

In this follow up to book one, it picks right where book one left off. You see Titania struggling mentally about the events in book one. Especially when you have your own people questioning your actions at every turn and speculating if what you said is true or not. With her power bound you see her try and live without the use of her magic and your heart goes out to this girl. But, she doesn’t let that stop her. She continues to grow into this amazing woman despite all odds and what everyone thinks of her. She shows that not only is she capable, she can do the hard things that no one wants to do, and that is what it takes to be a true ruler. I loved reading this book and cant wait to see what happens next!

The start of this book does start a little slow but at the same time does have some action scenes to move it along. Titania has experienced a lot of loss in her life. First her all of her brothers, and then other family members, and then the loss of her mother, even though she is still alive, she’s not the same as she was before. Titania does a lot of growing up in this book. At first she starts out as an angsty teen who cant leave her room without counting her crystals, but then she grows past that and learns that she can cope without having that safety blanket. With betrayals and more things happening around her instead of breaking her, it makes her into a great queen at just the young age of 15. This coming of age book is a wonderful first installment and makes me excited for the next book!

I love the way that this author proves that you can connect in so many ways with so many different people, able to care, and have a love and adoration for all of them in some way, shape or form. Even with this being the case, it’s easy to feel alone in the world, especially when things aren’t playing out the way you thought they would or should.

The way that Titania is so young, yet so wildly wise beyond her years, makes for a fantastic read. Of course, her age shines through on occasion, but that’s to be expected. I very much enjoyed the way the story is written in first person, and we get to see the world, responsibilities, and trials and tribulations through her eyes. Along with the love and strength emanating from our heroine, she exudes strength, power, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to protect her people and her kingdom. I haven’t read the first installment in this series yet but will be starting that as soon as possible. The depth of the world building this author puts into this novel is wonderful, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Well done!

I was so excited to be back in the Fae Realm again. Can you imagine being so young and so much resting on your shoulders? This story is filled with love, heartbreak, bravery and strength. All in the name of what’s best for the kingdom. I enjoyed the sequel just a as much if not more than the first. I cannot wait to see what’s Next for Titania. This author has easily become a favorite.

This was a really good book and a great sequel! I’ll admit it took me a little bit to get into this one, because it’s been so long since I have read the first installment and I had to play catch up and remember the events leading up to this one. But once I remembered and started getting into this one it was hard to put down. So many great characters were back, and the plot and storyline were just as good (if not better) than the first book. There were several twists and turns to me that I enjoyed. This series is absolutely enthralling and I have enjoyed them. It doesn’t allude to it at the end, but I really hope there’s another story to embark on in the future!

“To be a Fae Guardian” is so much better than the first book in the series, which I adored! This story is non-stop full of action. Once again, I was drawn in from page one! The character development and world building was as well done, if not better, than the first book. Another perfect installment and I cannot walt to see what’s in store next for our heroine!

This is the second story in the series. I have mixed feelings about this one. We follow Tatiana in her castle life and her personal one. Many times while reading I got the impression that much time had passed by then later in the book its only been six months since all that happened in book 1. Then her reign is always subject to scrutiny and she has family and personal struggles..not counting the major baddie. Just so tiring. I cant imagine being her. So much always going on.

Tatiana is becoming stronger and learning more about her abilities. She faces many issues that most adult people would struggle with. We do get a few more characters that add a bit to the story.

I was surprised and pleased with the story more than once. The world building is very well done too.

This is quite the ride! The story seems tedious at times with all the details. But it really draws the reader in. The characters are plentiful but I do have some favorites. I love Tatiana’s fiery spirit. She is young but really coming into her own as the story unfolds. She is a risk taker which can be good or bad. I am hoping she will continue to grow and become wiser.

While I enjoyed this story it did seem overlong. I enjoyed learning about Tatiana’s friendships but I can really see the youth in her at times. I look forward to the next.
