A Read & Review Club Review: Nightborn: Thrones and Bones Book 2 by Lou Anders

The CHB Read & Review Club is for educators and students who enjoy reading and would like to share the joy of reading with others through reviewing and recommending books. As a bookshop, we often receive special review copies of books in advance of their release dates so that we can review them. However, since we can only read so many books and we value the thoughts and opinions of other readers, CHB is recruiting educators and students to read and review advance reader copies (or arcs) of books that we receive, and we'll post their reviews on the Cavalier House Books website via the Read & Review Club Blog!

Caitlin G. (15) is a Read & Review Club member, and she has written a review of the second book in Lou Anders' Thrones and Bones series, Nightborn! Check out what she has to say about the book:

"Nightborn is the enjoyable, fast-paced second book in the Thrones and Bones series written by Lou Anders.  Once again I was able to lose myself in the words that Anders spun onto the page, words of friendship, betrayal, and of course adventure!  Throughout the novel the characters grow immensely through every event that they encounter and become closer to discovering who they are as people.  This novel teaches both the reader and the characters that anyone can become a friend.  People with different places of origin, people with different viewpoints, and people with different personalities all have one thing in common: no one wants to be alone.  Readers of the Magyk series by Angie Sage, and of the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull will enjoy this series not only because of the amazingly awesome magical beings but also because of the dangerous adventures that the characters venture into.  This novel is a wonderful adventure for readers of all age; it is not just for middle grade bookworms. Because of the adventures that friendship tends to bring in this series, I greatly enjoyed this book, and I am very excited to read more exciting novels that Anders has written."
