[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Second Order

B.H Knudson - creator of worlds, designer of experiences.

The Second Order

Buy from Amazon / Amazon UK / Amazon Ca

Ander’s tribe faces extinction. A mysterious disease has taken hold of everyone Ander cares about and he alone remains unaffected. He’ll have to ride his houndsteed through the dangers of the jungle to the neighboring kingdom of Bresia to request assistance.

But Bresia has its own problems. The nation is engulfed in a war with the Second Order, a militant régime bent on conquest. When Ander meets Kiah, the young and beautiful military leader, he inadvertently volunteers to assist the Bresian army, only to be captured in a botched military strike.

Ander is ultimately freed from the Second Order prison by a woman claiming to be his mother. She believes he is the last living heir to that nation's former monarchy. Ander is desperate to save his tribe, but the more he learns of the Order's genocidal plans, the more he realizes that they must be stopped, and he is the only one who can stop them.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

The Second Order is the debut novel by author B.H Kudson and I was pleasantly surprised. :)

It's an intriguing fantasy full of subterfuge, alchemy, and mystery...

Ander finds himself emersed in a long-standing war between the realms, wherein a group of fanatics called the Second Order feels like they should have all the power. And the lengths that they are willing to go to gain that are shocking, to say the least.

The line between cultural differences is blurred as Ander joins forces with other allies and friends to fight the mystical tyranny of the Second Order's ruling body and restore the nation to its former glory while garnering peace between the different clans and peoples.

The Second Order was action-packed and suspenseful, but also had some deep seated messages that I think come across beautifully.

I think that readers of young adult, new adult, and adult fantasy will enjoy taking a walk through Mr. Knudson's imagination. Take a chance on The Second Order.
