Review Thank you for sending me a free ARC.The book starts out with Thea and her group tracking down Viv after the shadows captures her It is also told from Caden s point of view I thought this was cool so now I know what he s thinking when he s around Thea Their relationship develops in this book and I m glad, but I feel like the other characters in their group Rain, Ben, and Naomi were very underdeveloped I still didn t know anything about Naomi by the end of the book and Rain is mostly still drooling over her Why does Naomi do certain things and why was she MIA when facing the ancient one I feel like she will betray the group or have an agenda or something just because we don t really know anything about her The dialogue I found to be really cheesy, whenever Cade talked about the light Or Thea I did enjoy Captain Steele and Devon s relationship, and his reluctance to let her in but she wasn t one to back down Overall I found the book to be okay but not one that really stood out to me. This review originally appeared on Author alliance It s probably not any big secret that I m a fan of M Kircher s work Her first book, The War Inside stayed with me for quite some time after I d finished it Dream On outside of this series was one of the best books I ve read in several years So I was excited to read The Gray Horizon I wasn t disappointed There were parts of the first book that felt a little preachy to me This isn t a bad thing, and shouldn t be considered a fault of the first book, but there were times I felt the author was veering a little too heavily into the religious imagery While there was just as much of that imagery in this installment, I felt that it was lesspreachy Again, don t think that I m dinging the book for this Not at all Post apocalyptic books often have these components and there s a very good reason for it The book of Revelation lends itself to it As with the first book, I thought the characters were very well done Thea was a little disappointing She was so strong in the first book and she hadnot a supporting role here, but not a starring role It was necessitated because Caden gets a lotpage time in this book since we re in his head and while I missed Thea a bit, I loved getting to know Caden better The dynamics between the two were very well done and believable We also gotbackground about how the world got to the state it was in When the first book started, we found out a lot about the world and how it worked quickly, but we weren t privy to a lot of the whys and hows This book gave a lot of answers that we needed and wantedat least from my perspective about what landed the characters in this mess in the first place.There were parts of this book that were difficult to read That was intentional There were times I disliked what the characters did I had to shut the book a few times and go do something else But I cared about these characters that s why I had such an extreme reaction That s the mark of a good writer This is a quick read that you won t want to put down and I m very much looking forward to the conclusion. @FREE EPUB à The Gray Horizon (The Horizons Trilogy, #2) ë What Does It Mean To Be

CoverThe cover works with the story It s clean and simple which I like.Initial ThoughtsBook two started right where book one finished off It was a nice, smooth transition I really enjoyed the first book so my expectations were pretty high for this one.My New BFFThea used to be my BFF but I found she was less intense in this book I really admired her for her strength and how she could take care of herself but I found we didn t see as much of her in this book That made me sad I really missed her She was kind of just the pathetic girl who missed her new friend She was too sad for me in this book but I wanted to keep loving her so bad She disappointed me a little.My CrushCaden was easily my favourite in this book I thought it was hilarious how he never admitted that he liked Thea until it sort of hit him I thought it was great seeing into his mind a little bit because we got to know him a little better He definitely kept the book light I thought he was super funny and entertaining Whenever him and Rain got together I had a good laugh The only thing that bothered me about him was that he could get a little cheesy when talking about Thea Their relationship was really cute though.Writing StyleI think this book was fast paced with lots of action There was a lot of information thrown at us though but the author made it fairly easy to keep track of everything Most of the characters were all well developed, except Thea, who I was a little disappointed with.Closing ThoughtsI really enjoyed reading this book It was a little short for me, but the author made good use of all her words I think that it was typical for a second book First and last books are always great but the middle books have a lot of setting up to do for the final battle I could tell there was a lot of setting up in this book for an epic battle I liked the dystopian society that the author has created in this series I enjoyed that it was an adventure story as well as a dystopian, it made it a little different I d recommend this series to anyone who likes a fun and unique adventure. Wonderful sequel The Gray Horizon by M Kircher is a knockout sequel to The War Inside The story resumes with characters Thea, Caden, Rain, Vivto name a few I love the way it s lyrical and beautiful Ms Kircher writes about light and dark and how those elements effect her characters, the world they live in, and to a degree, her readers It s refreshing to read a book where those written words can make the reader stop, sit up and ponder about the musing in a book and how that can translate to real life The Ancient Oneoh my If things weren t challenging enough, wait until you stumble across this twist in the story I enjoyed the way weakness and strengths were executed in The Gray Horizon It was well balanced and reminded me that even the strongest person has weakness and even the weakest can emerge from nowhere and surprise you The characters were unique, individual and fleshed out well They each brought something different to the table making this a fast paced, diverse read where you find yourself flipping fast through the pages eager to find out what happens next This is an amazing Dystopian read, high on this readers radar waiting patiently for book 3 in this trilogy If you re a fan of Dystopian YA Fiction, you ll want to snatch this one up in a hurry and make sure to clear your schedule It was hard to pace myself once I started Hats off The first book is told from Thea s point of view and this book is told from Caden s point of view At the end of book one, Viv was taken by the shadows and Thea, Rain and Naomi made it to Maria s settlement In the beginning of this book, Thea, Rain, Naomi and Maria s son Ben set out to find Viv Ben is a tracker and his skills come in handy Caden realizes his attraction to Thea is deeper than he s used to He gets jealous of the attention she pays Ben and then Naomi helps stir the pot.Meanwhile, Captain Steele receives a visitor who brings him out of the darkness and helps him realize there s a better life in the light He s resistant to the help but decides to give it a try and is surprised by what he finds Towards the end, there s a betrayal which is painful for all involved and it sets off a devastating tragedy I was feeling devastated along with the rest of the group and then there was a twist that changes everything The ending set up the third and final book quite nicely and I m excited to see how this ends I loved this book The characters learnabout themselves and each other, some good and some bad There s a lot of traveling and I tend to lose interest in sections of books when this happens, but I didn t with this one Ms Kircher s writing held my attention and I kept reading to find out what would happen next This is a series that is worth reading and I m looking forward to book 3 Content Mild swearing some kissing Clean I received a copy of this book to review My opinion is 100% my own. Fantastic This sequel flowed from book one seamlessly Just perfect As Thea and her friends search for Viv, they encounter the roughest of conditions The characters have depth They re all very different, yet likeable in that they re so realistic Every one of them made me laugh Equally as outstanding is the detailed settings I could imagine being there with them every step of the way There is literally not one bad thing about this series It s marvelous This story is about choices, freedom, good, evil, and everything in between It is a strong reminder to go outside, look at the bright blue sky, appreciate the brilliant sun, feel the rain, and relax Leave the cell phones, I Pads, I Pods, laptops, etc inside Sit and read a paperback book Take a walk, alone or with someone Talk to each other without the gadgets Feel the grass beneath your bare feet Even if it s just a minute or two a day, leave it all behind That s what this series make me want to do Every single day This is book two and it is blindingly brilliant Just like book one.Can t wait for book 3 Love it.Highly recommended to everyone.I got this book from the group LOP for an honest review. I received this book from the author through Lovers of Paranormal in exchange for an honest review.The Gray Horizon is an excellent second installment of series The story picks up soon after the events at the end of the previous installment While the opening was somewhat slow, Kircher used this time to further develop her characters and the world they live in We got to seeinto the minds of these characters and how finding the goodness within themselves changed them for the better We also saw some progress on new and old characters finding the light within themselves as well as their darkness I liked the bits of detail that not only gives usinformation on how this world came to be, but also linked itself to the world that we live in now.It was an entertaining read that really picked up toward the middle I was sad to see some characters go, but I will be interested in seeing how this series will come to an end I will definitely be returning for the final book well I enjoyed the first book, but this book took a real long time to get going and really not much happens until the end Enjoyed it but not sure I am intrigued enough to read the next one 3.5 stars Full Review on Brianna s Bookish Confessions.I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review from the author It does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I really enjoyed the sequel, I finished this within a day This is a dystopian paranormal book in which the world the sky is covered in dark clouds from pollution The sun can t get through the clouds, which means nothing can grow and survive in this world Food is scarce and it s hard to survive Everyday your just trying to survive until the next day and try and find food, and do the same the next day Thea, our main character, sees a girl being beat up by 2 guys and runs to save her While bringing Viv back to a healthy state, Thea notices that her bandages need to be changed While changing, Thea sees this weird light coming off Viv s abdomen Whoever comes in contact with this light, will receive this light on them as well if they believe in the light.I am really excited that I got to review the 2nd book I definitely enjoyed this My biggest issue is connecting with the characters I really like all the characters, but I ve just had a hard time connecting with them As well as the action, I felt that it was building up to this one epic battle scene It comes, and within 3 pages, it s over with But when the action was there, holy cow These dark creatures are freaky They have human like qualities, but kind of remind me of ghosts.My favorite thing about this series, is the world that M Kircher has created Not only is this dystopian, which is one of my favorite genres, but it includes paranormal aspects which is my favorite genre I love that the romance isn t the biggest part of this which is nice to get away from for a while Yes, there is a couple scenes, which are adorable and sweet by the way Rain is definitely my favorite character, he is hilarious and is head over heels for Viv I love Viv and Rain s relationship I also really enjoy how this changes point of views every so often I think the majority of The Gray Horizon is told from Caden s point of view Who, I really like
