Author- Donna Migliaccio
Fiskur is the second book in The Gemeta Stone Series by Donna Migliaccio. Skillful writing and elaborate descriptions of scenes and characters, makes it a very graphic read.
After acquiring the stone, Kristan Gemeta is ready to face Daazna and take his kingdom back but little does he know about the extent of Daazna's powers. Just when Heather and Kristan start getting romantically involved, Kristan is captured by Daazna. He faces a very hard time there but does not give up. Though he loses the lives of his guardians, Martin and Gabriel, the others manage to rescue him. The rescued Kristan is not soft and gentle as before. Daazna has made him devoid of his memories and emotions. Inspite of this, Kristan and his friends don't lose heart and finally manage to defeat Daazna and Kristan acquires the kingdoms of Hogia, Dyer and Norwinn, though with a fear. Now, his aim is to acquire Fandrall and make it the beautiful place that it once was. He leaves the three kingdoms with his trustworthy friends and moves ahead. Norwinn is with Melissa and Nigel, who are now married. Heather, Colin and Alister are left in Hogia and the rest go to Dyer. Torrin and Olaf go back to their own worlds.
The detailed descriptions of the executions and tortures makes you feel the dread that the characters must have felt. Though the scenes seemed dragged sometimes due to the details, the story and emotions of the characters kept me completely into it. The book beautifully highlights the friendship that the characters share. Kristan's horse, Malvo is written wonderfully to show its love and loyalty towards its master. I love how Donna introduces the name of the next book in the previous one. Fiskur was introduced in Kinglet when Olaf started addressing him as Fiskur. Stone King, the name of the third book is introduced in this one as the people in the kingdom address him by this name. The book is a recommended read for fantasy lovers and those who want to step out of their comfort genres.
