    Wow I was totally blown away by this one The second book was even better than the first The adventure was epic If you have ever seen the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie please tell me you have you will LOVE this book It was full of magic mysteriousness and puzzlement This book was inventive fun and whimsical This book had some darker moments than the first with a creep factor with cringe worthy moments I loved the first book so much but this one just blew me away It was impossible to put this book down even for a second Every couple pages something captivating would draw me in It was brilliant hilarious and maybe even one of the most enjoyable books I have read this yearRead the rest of my review at wwwbookaholicbantercom I received an eARC of this book from the publisher in return for my honest review

    Oh wow Wowza WhoaAlice in Wonderland meets Southern goth meets Johnny Depp in his finest rolesHey film agents this book needs its own MOVIE Do you hear me? Do yourselves a favor and bring this brilliance to vibrant onscreen lifeReece's brain is a world unto itself and one in which I would willingly get lost The technicolor experience she has created is all encompassing her characters swoon y witty and delicious and the plot is a summertime somersault down a grassy hill Meaning one you start you're not stopping and you'll sueal inwardly and perhaps outwardly all the way down that bad boyIf you haven't read THE ARTISANS go forth and do so Then uickly like whiplash fast get your hands on THE PALADINS and dive into it Go uickly

    Just amazing Oh how I've missed these characters Raven is back with her usual sizzling stubborn streak and Gideon sucked me in with his dark broodinghotness ; Add to that an ambitious 3rd POV Reece has outdone herself yet againReece writes with magical prose that compliments this southern gothic novel where mystery abounds romance lingers and somethings reaches from the other sideI received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    This was a fast paced crazy inventive book that had me cheering for the main characters and seriously wondering if Happily Ever After was even a possibility at some points I'd compare it to the Labyrinth but with a captivating love story Hats off to Julie Reece on another success

    This review and can be found at The A P Book ClubI received an advanced copy of this book as a part of the blog tour in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed The Artisans so even though it ended with a Happily Ever After I was still excited to find out that there was going to be a seuel I definitely still had a few uestions left over and even about what would happen moving forward The Paladins was a great continuation of Raven Gideon and Cole's story and I'm so glad I got the chance to read itWhile The Artisans is pretty obviously a new take on the classic Beauty and the Beast story The Paladins is uite a bit different I felt like there were several fairy tales and myths incorporated in this book and I actually thought that was much exciting than just retelling one specific story There's a little Rapunzel a little generic damsel in distress and a lot of Greek mythology especially centering around Pan and the Labyrinth For me everything meshed together well and it didn't feel like Reece was trying to do too much I'm sure there were references to things that I didn't catch because I wasn't familiar with certain elements of the stories but I did enjoy all of the things I did recognize I think this would still be a fun read for someone who isn't familiar with much of the mythology or anything because Reece establishes the rules of the world in her own way so that things still feel fresh and newThe Paladins is written from Gideon Cole and Raven's perspectives and I was so glad to be able to see what the boys were thinking Don't get me wrong I loved being in Raven's head for The Artisans but I don't think this book would have been anywhere near as good if we had only seen things from Raven The fresh viewpoints really added a depth to this story that helped move events along at a great pace especially when everyone was split up There was also some relationship drama that wouldn't have worked nearly as well if we hadn't been able to see the explanations from both sidesI'm still a huge fan of Gideon and just when I thought he was stable and maturing nicely he grows into a completely different person over the course of this book Events and people change him for the better and I really enjoyed watching him turn into this incredible young man He learns uite a bit about himself and how he should be treating other people and it was just really refreshing that he was the one who really needed saving instead of having the hero being the one doing the savingJulie Reece has constructed such a fantastic world with characters that I felt were my own friends and just enough magic to keep everyone on their toes Even though The Artisans would be an excellent standalone novel I was so happy to be able to visit this world again in The Paladins If you've read and loved The Artisans you definitely want to get your hands on this book as soon as possible I would also recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of fairy talemythology reimaginings especially those with a Southern Gothic aura to them I can't wait to find out what Julie is going to be working on next 45

    Thank you Julie Reece for upping the creepiness in round two of The Artisans Creepiness is a favorite thing of mine and this book delivered As a matter of fact everything about The Paladins felt like it was upped a notch And I loved it so muchThe Paladins was a non stop thrill ride Magic abounds with a nice little gothic y vibe happening With multiple POV's Cole Raven and Gideon done perfectly we get to see things in so many different lights it brings the story to a whole new dimension Each POV is done well and the switch offs are smooth After the events of The Artisans even though things ended relatively well I still had a few uestions Mostly is it REALLY over? And I got my uestions answered and then some Raven is the same girl from book one with her self doubt but fierce stubborness Gideon is as dark and brooding as ever and incredibly aggravating I loved these two in book one and I love them even this time But things are definitely different And I adore Cole It was wonderful getting to know him and I loved having his voice as one of the POV's I couldn't have asked for a better story than the one this author delivered Julie Reece has such a strong voice and uite the wonderful imagination I knew when I read The Artisans that this would be an author to watch and she cemented that fact with this seuel Now that The Artisans series is complete I very much look forward to whatever she has coming for us next

    The Paladins took me places I just didn't see coming This fast paced seuel to The Artisans features a dangerous trip through the Void a between worlds place filled with ghosts monsters nightmares and truly horrific scenarios The characters remain ground real and relatable The dialogue is witty and engaging My favorite part about these books is that the author doesn't shy away from the horror This book is downright scary in places It's good scary bravery inducing scary I love seeing horrific situations treated as such in young adult novels because life can be scary and terror exists The Paladins told us plainly it’s okay to be afraid but that doesn’t have to mean you stop fighting The horror was skillfully balanced in a beautiful world with wonderful characters through gorgeous writing I'm looking forward to grabbing of Julie Reece's work
