Three ebook giveaways will be up for grabs so make sure to come on down here and get to know just who and what this author is all about.
For this first week, a review of Two Sides Of A Coin (Chronicles of an Earned, #2) from eXtasy Books.
Published July 22nd 2016 by eXtasy Books
Having never failed anyone’s expectations to him, Alex finds it difficult to deal with having lost a valuable artifact, lied to Pritchard, and falsified a report to Mr. Henry. A whole new life in the States lies ahead of him. But Alex doesn’t like changes. The only things that keep him somewhat grounded are the calloused hands of the sadist, Dominic, and the support of the young demigod, Kaleb.
He had never expected Pritchard to keep their secret, but he did, and the stay in Philadelphia turns out very different from what he expected. Learning more about Pritchard and his past tips Alex’s understanding of a man he has hated and feared more than anyone, but depended upon with his life.
But moving to another continent doesn’t mean they escape an adversary so invisible that not even the Earned see them coming.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Chronicles of the Earned Book #2 is another high fantasy work of art by author Meraki P. Lyhne. If follows the story of Alex and Pritchard, as well as the secondary cast of characters we met in the first book, Anchored in Stone, which was a roller coaster of a read. This second book took my breath away, for your information. Now, at this point, if you haven't read the first book, stop and turn around. This second installment continues where that first left off so coming in now would only leave you confused. If you've read the first book of this series, go ahead and continue reading.
In this particular installment, without going into too many details, Alex and Pritchard find themselves in a bit of bind. They'd been thrown out on their asses, so to speak, by their shadowy owner who'd trained and controlled Alex's life strings like a grand puppeteer. This is because the stone that Alex got in book one disappeared. Thankfully, the owner never found out (or at least I think he never found out) about the other complication: the Earned. As for the relationship between Alex and Pritchard, we see quite an improvement here, a softening of the two toward each other.
Another character I would like to mention is Kaleb and his increasing importance in this story. We get to meet his pack, or family, we get to experience his love for Mickey and we also see his powers growing. I know he's going to gain more importance in the third book, as I've read and got the surprise of my life after reading the ending.
Can I just glare at the author now...if looks could kill...laser beams going right at you...
Now I have to read the third book! This cannot be!
Oh, yes. I highly recommend this series...glares at the man called Meraki.
