    Oh my Gods this was SO good The endingOh my Gods I have to wait for the next installment While the first in the series had a slow start this installment didn t disappoint from the first page There is so much movement in the story and you could see the characters growing up in front of your eyes Some happy moments but dear gods the sorrow Do yourself a favor and get this book and if you have not read the first installment then read it before you read this one as they need to be read in sequence.

    off to buy the next oneI both like and dislike the length of the books I feel like, on the one hand, it s a great chunk of story to swallow, not lighthearted and it s content but seeming like it would be so because of the length I feel like that makes it a little hard to get properly attached to the characters, but I am attached to their stories Not sure if that made sense, but I m definitely getting the next.

    THE FEAR AND THE SOLACE by Arie Farnam Book Two of The Kyrennei series I received a free copy of this eBook in exchange for a fair and honest review What if the forces of hatred could steal your soul From Goodreads Despair has always dogged the heels of those who defy Addin mind control Now Aranka Miko, the girl who could shield the resistance against infiltration, has gone down in a rain of bullets Twenty two year old Cho is the temporary commander of the J Company compound in Montana when disaster strikes The scouting team with Aranka was ambushed and the first spark of hope in a thousand years is lost If the rest are captured, their wills and minds will be usurped by the Addin cult Then Cho will be on her own in a secret war that cannot be won Two of her closest friends are already dead and the man she loves is at the epicenter of the peril Hope is a fragile thing and fear is a constant companion It s the twenty first century, right now, in America and everything looks just fine on the surface But a clandestine force controls the highest seats of power and will stop at nothing to stamp out resistance The ancient Meikan people, like Cho, have lived in terror of the Addin for generations, and those who dared to stand up to its power were shunned as outlaws by their own people Then a mere girl fulfilled an almost forgotten prophecy and hope briefly flowered in unlikely places But does a giant even notice the crushing of a single flower One girl is easy enough to kill My Review This book picks up immediately where Book One ends The main problem that I see with this fact is that readers will not easily be able to follow the story if they have not read the first book This is not a stand alone novel Jace, Aranka, Kenyen and a few other J Company members had gone out scouting for potential Kyrennei Unfortunately, the scouting mission went awry and two team members were killed Aranka narrowly escaped capture by jumping off a bridge She is presumed dead, but in fact, she survived the fall and is searching for Meikans to assist her in contacting and returning to J Company The rest of Aranka s group were searching everywhere for her and had just about given up hope that she survived when Tranh stumbles across her They narrowly escape the Addin and return to the hidden compound The winter snows in the group and they start to notice that the teenagers and even some of the younger Meikan children that Aranka had identified as being Kyrennei were falling ill They complained of joint pain and fatigue.It soon became clear that they were changing They were becoming Kyrennei, just like Aranka When the opportunity arises to raid an Addin facility that has imprisoned dozens of Kyrennei children, J Company must decide whether to raid the facility and rescue them or sacrifice the children and wait until there were Kyrennei imprisoned and rescue them at a future date When discussing their options and what Jace thought of the issue, the author writes He thought of it as a game of numbers and the numbers could be better Should J Company rescue the current prisoners and therefore lose the element of surprise making future raids difficult Or should they wait and let the children prisoners die in hopes of saving lives in the future Basically it is a question of whether the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many This is an age old debate Governments face this problem on a daily basis when deciding where to allocate funding Do they put money into cancer research or do they use that money to fund research on Aids or heart disease It may not be exactly the same as the situation outlined in this book, but it does give readers genuine food for thought The dilemma faced by J Company will make readers think about things in a way they may not have before reading this book I LOVE THAT It would be an interesting topic for a book club discussion The story continues on by outlining the ongoing struggles of J Company and the Kyrennei children they rescued.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and thought it was a terrific continuation of the series The author skillfully uses teasers throughout the book that foreshadow events to come, enticing the reader I also love the way the author has introduced the concept of standing up for what is right even when taking a stand could potentially cause problems It is an interesting dilemma and I found the various ways different people responded to the same situation both interesting and very realistic I rate this book as 4.5 out of 5 stars and I am looking forward to reading Book Three which is already available.The Kyrennei will enchant readers and many will wish they could join J Company in their fight against the Addin This is s great read and well worth buying To learn about this author and this book series, visit her on the web at www.ariefarnam.comTo read of my reviews, please visit my blog at

    I had high expectations for The Fear and the Solace, and I m happy to say that it met them in resounding fashion The second book in Arie Farnam s Kyrennei Series delivers the same exciting mix of interesting characters, honest characterizations, and emotional impact that made the first one so much fun to read Once again, the characters in the novel stood out to me as impressively drawn and real Their thoughts, actions, and relationships come alive on the pages in a way that doesn t feel forced Much like its predecessor, this is a novel that struggles with questions of identity, myth, community, power, injustice, and many other concerns that are relevant to our world set in a fantasy world that s almost indistinguishable from our reality There are moments of wonder and joy, but what makes this series shine is its ability to render the dark and painful happenings of our world, and present them to us in an unflinching manner If you re willing to feel the hurt that these characters carry with them, there s an abundance of their struggles to be found throughout the course of The Fear and the Solace I m sort of downplaying the fantasy elements of the novel, but not because I didn t like them There s the return of an ancient race once believed to be extinct, characters that can see auras, and the power of the Addin, which allows them to bend others to their will I find it interesting to note that the Kyrennei Series is not primarily focused on the fact that it s a fantasy In other words, it s a character driven series, which also happens to be set in a well crafted fantasy world Fantasy novels can sometimes fall into the trap of overdoing the fantastical elements of the work, while inadvertently neglecting to develop the characters that are supposed to act as the reader s companions along the way There s none of that in these books I wanted to read because I cared about the protagonists, not only because I was fascinated by their abilities and all the crazy situations they get into Strong characters leave an impression on the reader, and there are plenty of those here Writing in the first person perspective is a lot of work, and I appreciated the ways that Farnam wrote each character By the end of the book, I probably could have picked a passage at random, without looking, and figured out which character was narrating it They all have a voice, and by reading their stories through those voices, the reader learns a great deal about each character There s plenty of action in the novel, even though it s full of strong character development and delves deeply into the inner lives of its denizens The end of the first book left me with a ton of questions, and this one didn t make me wait too long to start getting answers Some new characters are introduced early in the narrative, but not in a way that slows it down There were a couple of chapters in the middle where the pace slowed, though mostly they mirror the way that the characters live during these times of being isolated and hiding for long periods At times, this also added to the tension, because often the reader is left waiting for answers I didn t find myself getting bored during these sections, because they re all grounded in the developing plot.There s also of the Meikans, whose history and practices are developed further Farnam s story relies heavily on the importance of the Meikans, whose treaty with the Addin is what keeps them silent and forces them to live a life of exile, practicing their religion and culture in secret I don t want to give anything away, but I will say this one of my favorite scenes in the novel involved a meeting of a Meikan Council The politics behind the modern continuation of the war between Kyrennei and Addin come up often in conversations between characters, but in this part of the novel, we get a closer look at it for the first time Because of everything that led up to it, I understood the gravity of this important plot moment Only one thing bothered me about this book the plot was occasionally predictable, especially in the case of certain characters I wasn t always surprised by what happened next Still, this didn t lessen the emotional impact of the novel The ending powerfully reinforces the lessons that Farnam s characters are still struggling to learn They lament what happens, not only because of what it means for their cause, but because their fear of what could happen has tricked them into allowing it to happen There s no neatly packaged resolution to the story, but the stage is set for what promises to be another compelling addition to the Kyrennei Series.

    The Fear and The Solace is book two in The Kyrennei series, suitable for young adults and above It is a thriller The series is about the discrimination of a lesser people, a theme which the world has seen over and over.This book continues the story of the emergence of an ancient people called the Kyrennei and their treaty with the Meikan nation The Addin are a group of power seekers who control money and authority They have mind controlling techniques which they use on people In the first book they were rounding up children and seriously experimenting on them Aranka was rescued by an out law team and taken to a Montana hide out where her true identity evolved.Book two begins with Aranka on the run after an attempt by the Addin to recapture her Befriended by children she is once again whisked to safety The Addin are taking and children and experimenting on them and the out laws go on another mission to save them.With constant precautions needed it s not long before the Montana safe house is compromised and once again the out laws are on the run, this time crossing mountains to reach Canada The need to be heard and voice their oppression to the world urges them to come out in the open and ask for support May you always be free, a Meikan phrase really can be echoed in our own world.This fictional series speaks volumes about many minor nations I recommend reading book one first and following this important series.

    The first instalment in the series, The Soul and the Seed, explored the pain of growing into individuation, in a world that favours conformity but was wrapped in a fantastical narrative of the Kyrennei mystical beings whose secrets are embedded in the DNA of youngsters throughout the world with no idea of the revolutionary potential of their genes The second instalment, The Fear and the Solace explores the cost of truth Aranka and her fellow Meikan outlaws choose a life without comfort and fraught with danger, where they are relentlessly pursued by the Addin a secret society that rules the world Fear is the by word of outlaws existence love and living are a luxury sacrificed in their mission to save the evolving human species born with the power to resist the Addins far reaching power hungry tentacles The outlaws only solace is the hope for change, but will the truth become a call for freedom or a prison of their own making

    This is the second in the Kyrennei series and it is just as good as the first It picks up where the last book left off, with Aranka separated from her friends and being hunted by the Addin who control the world behind the scenes I personally recommend reading the first book before this one as it helps to understand the complexities of the world that the author has created I enjoyed the way that the different chapters switched perspectives between some of the major characters which offered different insights into the issues being faced I also liked the way that this book really focused on the struggle the freedom fighters were going through The ending was heart wrenching and definitely makes me anxious to see the third one released its just that kind of series where you get so involved in the characters lives and struggles that its hard to let go when the book is over.

    Finally It was painful waiting for this one but it doesn t disappoint A breathtaking continuation of the story of Aranka and J Company It s absolutely gripping, often terrifying but always engrossing I can live in this world and I am obsessed with the characters, so that I can t stop thinking about them when I m not reading Aranka continues to be a well developed and complex character Thanh is still my favorite character A specific villain emerges Without giving specific details away I can say that you ll be happy to find that you get to know the premise and the world of the story in greater depth, particularly the Meikan culture Finished the book in record time Now I m jealous of all those who haven t read it yet but I will get to read it again.
