Kael’s most trusted protector has been taken, and his home planet of Trinoor is still in the grips of the tech-virus unleashed by his brother Fyth. In the fourth installation of the Kael Jai series, Raef’s genetically enhanced wy’tche allies with Fyth to mastermind the capture of Kael Jai himself. With their technology crippled, Kael’s new army struggles to free him. If he survives Fyth’s prison and the beatings he receives daily, Kael’s only chance to save Sylph, and his world, may be to kill his own brother.
And the action continues. I was not disappointed with this second book in E.J. Deen’s Kael Jai Series. These characters are really growing on me. Book Two, The Keeper focuses on Sylph, Kael Jai’s Benagh priejst keeper, which is somewhat like having a really cool, highly technologically advanced, spiritual martial artis, personal guard that follows you everywhere. Only, in this book, Sylph leaves Kael and goes to Earth to protect Eva. And that’s when it gets shaky for Sylph because he is facing an unknown, unseen enemy that has tech even better than his. This book let’s Sylph grow quite nicely, while the reader falls more in love with the gorgeous alien. Sylph feels fear, shows a depth of emotion not seen in Book One, and fights for his life like nothing-doing. This story has depth, action, emotion, adventure, and…I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but the author definitely leaves us with a cliffhanger at the end. I can’t wait for book three. I hope the author continues this series for a very long time. I will definitely buy all of them, and will be a fan for life.
