James: Book II in the Teumessian Trilogy

By Ana Elise Meyer

By Ana Elise Meyer

This review is long overdue. After taking a short break from book reviewing, I finally regained my passion with this book and it’s no surprise. James is the second book in the Teumessian Trilogy, I had the honor of reading and reviewing book one, Marie. It was very good and filled with action, twists and turns, and great characterization. Here comes the second book, following a character left in the wake of the destruction of the first book’s protagonist.

I would like to start off this review by saying that James was good. As a standalone book, it is well worth five stars but also as the second book in the Teumessian series. James is a different character from Marie, where Marie could be called ‘unstable’ James is somewhat sure of himself despite his questioning and wonders.

James has to face different struggles from Marie so readers have to judge him differently. I can’t make a direct comparison between the two characters because I don’t think that was the intentions of the author, to have this compare and contrast between these two. They are two different people, protagonists of two different books. But their stories intertwine.

James lost his parents and is raised by another family member, all is well with his grades and his social life until the drama begins. We are thrown into a mix of wonder and creativity as we watch James piece together the answers to his questions and ours.

Meyer presents us with yet another action packed thriller. This is a mix of psychological chill and sci-fi thrill. You will get goosebumps from vivid descriptions and heart-pounding scenes, your heart will stop with all the twists and turns, but you will find great stability on the dependable and well balanced characters. This is a ride that everyone should take, especially those fans of Marie. Well written and entertaining.

I would recommend this book to readers who enjoyed the first of the Teumessian Trilogy. Any fans of science fiction and action thrillers will love this, if you’re up for a bit of psychological thrill then you might enjoy this as well.
