    In my experience, sophomore novels have a tendency to decrease in overall quality when compared to their predecessors. However, that was NOT the case with The Tides of Reckoning. Every aspect that I enjoyed in The Outlands only got better and the elements I had been less thrilled with were vastly improved upon.

However, that was NOT the case with The Tides of Reckoning. Every aspect that I enjoyed in The Outlands only got better and the elements I had been less thrilled with were vastly improved upon. Tyler Edwards' creativity is once again on display as he introduces us to new locations, characters, and other fun/horrifying surprises along the way. A large part of the world building in book 1 had been dedicated to the structure and culture within the city of Dios. Here, we finally get to explore what lies beyond the walls as Jett has been exiled into the Outlands. Even though the settings are quite different in comparison, they definitely feel like part of the same world. I particularly enjoyed how the slang used in the first book was carried over and expanded on in this one. Since I had really bonded with the characters in book 1, I had my doubts about whether I would feel a similar fondness for those we would meet here. Not only did I find some of the additional characters to be just as endearing, but my love soared for those that had been previously established. I never expected to adore these characters as much as I do. I was also pleased that my earlier issue about some of the side characters being glossed over was addressed here. While there is still more to uncover about them, I loved getting to see them shine a bit more while also learning about their backgrounds. For readers who prefer more reprehensible characters, the new villains are far more compelling than those featured in The Outlands and are without a doubt absolutely despicable. Also, as someone who felt the female characters and the roles they had been given in book 1 were rather lacking, I was incredibly delighted with the improvements made here. Even the romance element, which I didn't much care for initially, was revamped and made far more appealing. As far as the plot, I won't give anything away, but I feel confident that fans of the first book will be thrilled by all the twists and developments. While Dios had its fair share of dangers, the Outlands is just as terrifying as we had been led to believe. The action scenes continue to be a highlight as they were well-paced and described. One of the biggest surprises to me was the number of times I was impacted emotionally - whether due to excitement, shock, fear, or sadness. It's rare for me to cry when reading, but this one managed to push me to that point. That alone is an impressive feat. Overall, this was a fantastic continuation. It's clear that the author was aware of the issues raised with the last book and worked to ensure that this product was the best it could be. I absolutely enjoyed my time reading this and would recommend it without question. Even if you weren't crazy about The Outlands, I suggest you give this one a try.

    I thought I loved the first book. But, if this is what loving a book feels like, I guess I was wrong. Tides of Reckoning picks up the story of Jett Lasting and his friends as they find themselves trying to survive the hostile conditions of the Outlands filled with monsters, toxic rain, marauders, and the depraved. I had a hard time putting this one down. It was so good!

    4.5 Stars *Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy to beta-read in exchange for an honest review.* The Tides of Reckoning follows on from The Outlands. This book ramped up the intrigue and the action, and I loved it! Jett has been exiled to The Outlands alone, and he has to navigate himself around an area he’s never been to before, and only heard horror stories about.

This book ramped up the intrigue and the action, and I loved it! Jett has been exiled to The Outlands alone, and he has to navigate himself around an area he’s never been to before, and only heard horror stories about. Jett and his friends were exiled at different times, he feels incredibly guilty so decides he will find and unite them. He journeys to find his friends through these wastelands, and discovers new settlements, and maybe new friends. The world of Dios is so much more complex an interesting compared to book one. We discover more about who, and what, lives these. I loved how Jett put his friends before himself in this novel. A lot of what he does in this book is for his friends, and you can really admire his personality. There is a lot of character development over the course of Jett’s storyline. He seems to believe in himself and his ability to lead more. I loved the new characters. I thought Kali was an incredibly strong female character. Rowan is a great addition too, and I enjoyed finding out more about him. Jett’s relationship with these characters grew slowly but strongly. It was such a joy to read and follow their relationships, particularly Kali and Jett’s! Friendships from the previous book were in this and developed much stronger. Comparing this to the original version of the first book, it is so different! I enjoyed the first book, but really loved this one. The characters felt more real and it was easier to have an emotional connection with them. The storyline itself was intriguing and I couldn’t put it down. There were some unanswered questions that I think will be answered in the next instalment, and I can’t wait to read it and find out what happens to these characters!

    I thought The Outlands (book one) was a very good read. The Tides of Reckoning (book two) in the series is considerably better. Despite being betrayed, then separated from his friends, Jett Lasting must literally hit the ground running in the dreaded Outlands. Packed with monsters, environmental dangers and really bad bad guys, Jett faces a series of new nightmares with Jumanji-like pacing. Book two gets us deeper into the characters (favorites from the Dios exiles as well as new allies), and th I thought The Outlands (book one) was a very good read.

Book two gets us deeper into the characters (favorites from the Dios exiles as well as new allies), and the world building elements are wildly creative. If you liked book one, grab book two of this series. It’s a wild ride. (Already looking forward to book three).

    Hello again, I'm so glad you are interested in book 2. I put a lot more time into the characters and the pacing of the book. Overall I think the final product turned out much better. It's not perfect by any means as I'm not sure any book really is. I am in the process of writing book 3 and things are really starting to come together for that. My current plan is for the series to be 4 books. After that, who knows? The audiobook is in production now, which I am really excited about. Hello again, I'm so glad you are interested in book 2.

    This book started out pretty good, until the author decided to add in a very graphic description of some people getting eaten alive. I couldn't even finish the book after that. It was good, but that ended it for me. The sad thing is that I really liked this, and was invested in the characters. If you feel like you can handle that kind of stuff, then go ahead and read.
