 I met Lee French at the AFK I Heart Books event at the beginning of the year. Read about all the books I discovered here. In a world where most print books are $15 – $30, the first book in her “The Greatest Sin” Series was only $8. My favorite color used to be purple and is now blue. Most of her books feature blue in their covers and her Greatest Sin Series features quite a bit of purple. I was intrigued by the colors and the price tag and bought the book. I wasn’t sure if I’d like this book as it was a world-building type fantasy and I typically go for the low-fantasy could almost happen in our world type fantasy. But I fell in love with Chavali, the main character, and have since read every single book Lee French has currently published and am eagerly awaiting more books.

I like the way French weaves fantasy into her story and makes the reader wonder, what is the greatest sin? French has a way with words and phrases that is mesmerizing. Her writing style is elegant and captivating. You can tell she is a professional and knows what she’s doing. She gives Chavali a bite to her words. I love the quick wit Chavali exhibits and the way she talks back without trying to usurp anyone or prove she’s better.

Lee French continues to deliver good writing and great story with the second and third books in The Greatest Sin series. Just like The Fallen, Harbinger was full of great quotes, quippy dialogue, fun and larger than life characters, and a female kick-butt main character who took no nonsense from anyone.

Soon to be published by Lee French is “Al-Khabar”, of which I was honored to receive as a beta read book and will give it another read before posting a five-star review.

Summary:

Harbinger focuses on the mystery behind one of the Fallen agent’s disappearance in Ket, a small coastal city in this second book of the Greatest Sin series.

Along with a man she saved from death (Harris), a morally stringent man who upholds honor and truth above all else (Colby), and another woman (Portia), as well as Colby’s strange and large horse (Karias), Chavali will have to use her skills and the help of these companions to figure out what is really amiss in Ket.

My Review:

Lee French delivers again in the second book in this series, with Harbinger. Just like The Fallen, Harbinger was full of great quotes, quippy dialogue, fun and larger than life characters, and a female kick-butt main character who took no nonsense from anyone.

I like the way French weaves fantasy into her story and makes the reader wonder, what is the greatest sin?

French has a way with words and phrases that is mesmerizing. Her writing style is elegant and captivating. You can tell she is a professional and knows what she’s doing. She gives Chavali a bite to her words. I love the quick wit Chavali exhibits and the way she talks back without trying to usurp anyone or prove she’s better. Though anyone in her position would have an immense chip on their shoulder, Chavali is down to earth and confident in hereslf.

Chavali is more than just emotionally tough, she is shown to master the fight in Harbinger. She has been trained and now she uses these new skills to defend herself and other Fallen.

This novel was published by Tangled Sky Press on November 9th, 2014 and is available on Amazon here.

 

TL;DR Star Rating: 5.0
