Hostage Run by Andrew Klavan ~ Review

Hostage Run (Mindwar, #2)My Review:

Rick Dial is back in the second installment of the Mindwar Trilogy he returns to the realm, on a life threatening mission to bring down Kurodar,
and save Mariel and Favian. But Rick isn't the only one in danger, his whole family is, and anyone associated with him--like his friend Molly, who is taken by Kurodar's thugs. Will Rick be able to thwart Kurodar and save the ones dear to him, before time runs out?

The action-packed, non-stop follow up to Mindwar, picks up pretty much right after the previous book, making it very important to read the first book as much of this book is built on assuming knowledge of the previous events. Though it does recount a few things in passing, making it easy to dive right into if it's been a while since reading the first book.

Rick is weakened by his last foray into the Realm, but it has never been so important that he return, as the walls that separate the realm from reality are crumbling, and Kurodar sets his sights on the real world.

A terrific read, that reads as an essential part of the saga, and not like a filler at all, which is so often the case with second books. I loved Rick Dial, as he is a young man, who is brave and heroic, yet he struggles with his own temptations. He's admirable, yet also relate-ably human.

Overall, a terrific addition to the series, sure to thrill and entertain. Riveting to the last, Mr. Klavan's excellent world building skills bring the story to life, with his wonderful grasp of blending fantasy and reality.
