Like I said in a previous post with the review for book one, I’m joining a blog tour for this book, so here is my review. Hope you find this book interesting.
“A Noble’s Path“, written by I. L. Cruz, is the second book in the Enchanted Isles Series, a Fantasy novel published on January 31st 2020 by Bosky Flame Press.
I received a complimentary copy of this book thanks to Rachel Poli and I. L. Cruz. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Divided loyalties test Inez Garza.
The infamous incident at the Academy of Natural Studies has forced her to work for the King’s Men while continuing to serve the hidden market.
Supporting Birthright furthers the cause of Magical Return, but the cost may be the fall of the royal house and losing Zavier forever.
And the strongest pull of all is her growing and erratic magic, which demands everything and offers only destruction in return.
Inez must decide where her loyalties lie—saving Canto or saving herself.
About the Author
I.L. Cruz decided to make writing her full-time career during the economic downturn in 2008. Since then she’s used her BA in International Relations to sow political intrigue in her fantasy worlds and her MA in history to strive for the perfect prologue. When she’s not engaged in this mad profession she indulges her wanderlust as often as possible, watches too much sci-fi and reads until her eyes cross. She lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter and a sun-seeking supermutt named Dipper.
If you follow my reviews you know I have read the first book in this series, and I have to say that I jumped immediately to “A Noble’s Path”, since I already had it and my mind was in that world. Best thing I did…
We keep following the main character, Inez, in this novel and I liked that the obstacle keep appearing (that’s life for you!), making things hard and leading the characters to choose their path, to choose their new action and response.
With each choice we make we are learning, no matter if we have magic or not, it’s all the same, but imagine we did have magic… there would be an extra thing to take in count when choosing. And seeing Inez having to deal with all of that was quite interesting. I can’t imagine being in her position, despite that, I still felt empathy for her.
Inez, despite her magic, has emotions, wants and needs, and definitely fears. And I could relate to that. She did develop as a character because of the circumstances she was in, and her relationships developed as well, which is to be expected.
Overall, it was one of those books I have quite enjoyed reading. It kind of took me back to my teenager self, when I was reading this kind of fantasy related to magic and fantasy worlds, and I loved that. I will keep an eye out for more books written by I.L. Cruz, and if you enjoy fantasy, you may want to check this book out.
