  • Review forthcoming on a-reader-lives-a-thousand-liveI receives a copy of Knight of Wands in exchange for my review as a part of this blog tour. This is book of the Devices of War trilogy, the first of which, Fall of Sky City was reviewed by me on this blog, as a part of the first ever blog tour I participated in!Having handed himself back to the Hands to save his friends, Synn finds himself back in the hands of the Queens. Though Nix wants him back, he is doing everything in his power to escape [...]


  • You know me. I love all of my books! Butis one? OMW! I love-love-LOVE this book. It can be written as a stand-alone. I'm just letting you know. I worked very hard to get that. OMW! SOOOOOOOOOO good! Some of my favorite scenes are in this book!


  • Knight of Wands is the second book in the Devices of War Trilogy. I loved the first book, Fall of Sky City, and I was so excited to get to read book two. It was amazing to see what was happening in this beautiful world and to all the interesting characters. While this book wasn’t all about showing their Marks, or abilities, it was more political, it didn’t lose any of its appeal. The action was still there, but now interspersed with trying to gain peace in an unstable world.The book centers [...]


  • I was given this book for my honest review….In the first book we get a look into this wonderful world that S.M Blooding has created. We get to see the history of the Great Families and The Hands also learn about the “marks” that some of the people have. In this book we get to see how Synn and the others are working to shape their future. This book had a more political aspect to it than the last. That aspect added more to it. S.M Blooding does a wonderful job at creating a beautiful world. [...]


  • I read the first book in this series a while ago (review: identitydiscovery/2013/05/bookreview-fall-of-sky-cityml) and fell in love with it. I loved the setting and the conflict that was occurring. Synn El'Asim escapes control of the Hands, four Queens that are destroying the world he loves, only to wind up being captured at the end of Book 2 by them again. However, this time he is being "trained" to withstand the bond that he accidentally forged with Queen Nix. Queen Dyna is determined to overt [...]


  • In the second volume of Devices of War, Synn Kadar El’Asim (not Primus, he insists) of the powerful Mark learns about politics. Nix Primus (Queen of Wands) would do anything, including killing and destroying, for Synn to be her knight. Dyna Domitius (Queen of Swords) claims she wants peace. Suddenly Nix offers a peace treaty with the remaining Great Families, and wants Synn to be the emissary.Are the adults forgetting that Synn is young, intelligent and an idealist? And that he has friends wat [...]


  • I had never read a steampunk fantasy novel before I read Fall of Sky City. I didn’t even know what it was. But I forged ahead and read it and was completely amazed. The author created such a fantastical world with unforgettable characters and I couldn’t wait to read this second installment.The characters are growing and developing. Synn is trying to figure out his role in the world. And with some powerful and strong-minded women in the mix, he is in for a bit of a time of it.He wants to do t [...]


  • Knight of Wands is the second book in the Devices of War trilogy. While it can be read as a stand alone, there are obvious spoilers if you want to read book one first. I go more in-depth on the world there, but here's the cliff note's version."What I really loved most of all were the creatures, and the idea of symbiosis that occurred with the Families. It didn’t matter if it was land, sea, or the air, they worked and developed relationships with these creatures. The Hands were the complete opp [...]


  • I'd like to thank the author and Promotional Book Tours for a chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.When I signed up for this review, I was a little leery, as it is the second book in a series, and I never do well with jumping into the middle of a series.However, the author promised that it could easily be a stand-alone. It sounded like an awesome book, so I jumped on the chance to read it.I got burned again. If you can get past all the back story that you're missing that's h [...]


  • I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. This is book two in The Devices of War series. The story begins with Synn El'Asim still imprisoned by Queen Nix. He repeatedly resists the draw she has on him. Her sister, Dyna, decides to use Priestess Aiyanna to get information on the location of Ino City. Queen Nix releases Synn after she sends out a notice stating that as her Knight, Synn would be drafting a peace treaty. Will Synn receive complete freedom? Will Nix's evi [...]


  • The world is still amazing, the writing brilliant, and my issues with the main character have softened slightly as he's become a bit more self aware. From the sneak peek at the next book, I suspect he regresses though, which will be annoying, because conflict due to being an arsehat is less interesting than working out how to manage yourself and interactions with other people. I recommend this series for the world building and depth of character creation. And if the author reads this review, you [...]


  • Synn has escaped Nix’s city, but not the Queen’s clutch. Desperate to rid himself of her influence and restore justice to his world, he launches a daring plan. But at what price?The second book in the Devices of War Trilogy continues the story of Synn and his band of friends. Tribal politics take a central role in the book, as does Synn’s rising role amongst his tribe. While I enjoyed the new creatures introduced, I wanted to shoot Nix at various points in the story – enough already! Thi [...]


  • two things: first, can't wait for a paper copy to add to my shelf next to the first book. second, I really wish the next book came out tomorrow


  • Overall I found this series interesting. It was a little hard for me to get into the first book, but as the series progressed each book got progressively better. Of the three, Whispers of the Skyborn was my favorite. The world the author has developed is well thought out. The people consist of different tribes, some who live on land, some who live on and in the sea, and some who live in the sky. By book three tribes of all types come together to form the League of Cities. If you enjoy science fi [...]



  • An awesome story to read!This is my first experience in reading a steampunk story that actually flows well from start to finish . Moving on to the next chapter!
