    As Danika Glynn and her crew of refugees Teddy Lukas Maisie and Clementine continued their journey to the Magnetic Valley they were still being pursued by the king’s hunters with Sharr Morrigan in the lead Sharr was a vicious and lethal hunter and determined to finish off the refugees who had bested her in the past Her proclivity was Flame one of the most dangerous of all When they finally arrived at the edge of the borderlands they realized the danger had just magnified – the alchemy magic was spread throughout the land and if they went the wrong way they would be lost Suddenly though Danika had to seek help from the smugglers whose land they had strayed onto; one of the crew was desperately injured and needed a healer uickly And when it seemed that Lukas was hiding secrets she wondered if her trust in this boy had been misplaced With the king’s hunters in hot pursuit the king’s soldiers multiplying ahead of them and the smugglers also behind – would Danika and her friends be able to continue? The race was on to beat the king before he began plan B – could they foil his plot once again? They could almost taste success – the Magnetic Valley was so close But what would it take to reach that longed for safety?This is the second in the Chasing the Valley trilogy by Aussie author Skye Melki Wegner and is just as action packed and thrilling as the first An excellent fantasy tale and I can’t wait to read the third and final of the series I have no hesitation in recommending Borderlands highly but do recommend Chasing the Valley be read first

    BORDERLANDS was the first book I read in 2014 and my first 5 star read; was an amazing thriller of a read When I discovered that it was the second in the Chasing the Valley series I was a bit worried because I hadn’t read the first Not a problem at all I was sucked into the story from the very first line and at no stage did I feel that I had missed anything Having said that I am going to go back and read the first one to catch up on the background in depth BORDERLANDS is a wonderful blend of adventure science fiction and magic set in a dystopian world In this world is the country of Taladia which is ruled over by a really nasty king who is set on conuering all the surrounding lands so he can make even people miserable Danika and her friends have escaped death and destruction and are heading for Magnetic Valley an almost mythical land where everything is beautiful and peaceful They have survived getting out of the city now they have to survive the borderlands They are being hunted by the king’s special troop of hunters who have everything to gain by capturing the group; on top of this little set back of being hunted there are smugglers with ulterior motives and a huge army between the group and their destinationIn Taladia everyone has a magical ability when they reach their late teens their ability becomes known and a little tattoo appears on the back of their neck that reveals the ability Danika is just learning hers – it is night She can create an illusion spell to hide herself and the others and she can melt into darkness and get through solid things Others in her group can control animals start fires and become one with birds BORDERLANDS is about friendship and working as a team despite personality clashes; it is about using your magical talent and it is about ethics; most of all though BORDERLANDS is about survival Fast paced full of drama and humor the story was action packed I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next The ending was great edge of the seat stuff and with some deaths but nothing graphic It is good to know that there is a third book to come due out in July 1914 and hasn’t been given a title yet but this knowledge means that possible the nasty old king is going to have another crack at conuering the world – or is he vanuished finally? Will the Magnetic Valley be the utopia Danika and her friends are hoping for? All will be revealed I’m sure and I plan to be front and center getting it when it comes out I HAVE TO KNOW what happens in the end

    'You can't have light without dark and you can't have stars without the night'Just as fast paced and action packed as the first book Borderlands was an entertaining read that managed to answer all the uestions I had from Chasing the Valley I really liked how there is a nice recap weaved into the first few chapters of Borderlands It'd been a while since I'd read the first book so a lot of the details had slipped from my mind and having that subtle recapping was really uite usefulWritten in first person present tense there's a very modern narrative voice which seems to suggest to me that it's targeted at younger readers Things are often also very overtly stated and the twists are sort of by which I mean very obvious Again I think this is probably because it's targeted at a slightly younger age groupA lot of the things that were left unexplained in the first book such as why the proclivity marks were covered up and where exactly charms come from are explored fully in this one definitely decreasing the issues I had with the world building The general world building was pretty good with of the magic system being explained Although I must say there was a sorrowful lack of foxaries these massive foxes that people ride around like horses omg gimme one now in this one hahaWhereas the first book was very centred on action and adventure and trying to reach the Magnetic Valley the seuel is focused on the development of Danika's character I mean obviously they're still trying to reach the Magnetic Valley in order to be safe from the King and the Hunters etc but the plot was also about Danika trying to get over the guilt of causing a character's death as well as her attempting to overcome her fear of using her proclivityEveryone who enjoyed the first book to some degree should be reading this seuel it's just as fabulous as the first Much like Chasing the Valley Borderlands ends on a slightly cliffhangery ending with the promise of adventure to comeRatingsOverall 910Plot 45Writing 45World Building 45Characters 45Cover 25

    Chasing the Valley The Borderlands is the second book in Skye Melki Wegner's Chasing the Valley series Danika and her crew are fleeing Shar Morrigan and her hunters after destroying the tyrannical King's airbase think Sadam Hussein As they enter the magical wetlands between the kingdom and the valley the only way to the free lands in the east they find new challenges and realise that they haven't stopped the King's invasion of the lands beyond the valley as the King has a plan B Danika must begin to trust her proclivity of Night and fight to stop the King escape the hunters and save her friends especially Lukas from disaster The Borderlands is fast paced action packed book It introduces new characters and plot twists I enjoyed the book though at times the pace was unrelenting the twists not all that surprising The smugglers introduce a new and interesting element to the story and the climax was suitably satisfying leaving room for the next book Overall I did enjoy reading this book though I think I would have liked a few lights in the picture to give weight to the constant darks I will be reading the next book to see how Danika Lukas and the others fare

    This review contains spoilers mainly because I’m terrible at writing one without them they are covered thoughIn the second book of the trilogy Danika and her crew have successfully destroyed King Morrigan’s stash of Curiefer and are now heading once again to the Magnetic ValleyHowever turns out what they destroyed was only PLAN A for the King has a PLAN B putting a damp once to the crews planAlong their journey to stop the King they encounter smugglers and a new acuaintance within them named Silver who will be of much help to the crew and holds the key to their success they are forced to leave friends behind run away from new and old enemies and will be surprised when an old friend makes a reappearanceOnto the reviewThe story was an improvement from the last book Undeniably uick paced the characters didn’t even get much time off before they had to once again run for their lives or deal with a new threat In fact I’d say that’s one of the things what made this book so frustrating I mean seriously give the kids a break dear godOverall though I’m happy with the story and the ending I’ll admit however the supposed ‘’twists’’ and ’’surprises’’ weren’t much of either I could pretty much guesssmell them from the get go view spoiler When they met Silver for example I KNEW the moment this happened Silver I whirl around to search for the old woman her voice still ringing in my ears She stands a metre away from me panting heavilyI force my tongue to work ‘Your proclivity is Night’She nods ‘Yes’ That she was Lukas’s grandmother Call me crazy but the fact that she was an old lady used to be a great alchemist and was the first to create alchemy bombs had this undeniable infatuation with Danika’s charms PLUS the whole Night proclivity thing it justclicked Then there was the whole ’’How alchemy charms are really created’’ordeal ‘Give it life?’ I say ‘What do you mean?’Silver gives a low chuckle but she sounds sad than amused ‘To create and alchemy charm someone must die In their last throes of life they may choose to pass a fragment of their dying proclivity into the metal’’ Wanna know what happened?She diesYes I’m not even kidding She gets stabbed by a piece of metal and before she does grabs Danika’s little star charm and gives it a piece of her proclivity Also we find out she was the granny all along like wow I can’t even totes didn’t expect this major twist wowowowo hide spoiler

    Sadly this second book in the trilogy seemed like a lot of filler a bit like the 7th Harry Potter movie It took forever for anything to happen and the death of a certain character came way too rapidly after their reappearance Finally they get to where they’ve been heading for the last 2 books Yay I’m going to read the final one just to see what happens
