âBelieveâ Oni Fighters Book 2 by Natalie Gayle was another surprising read by this author. Already the first novel âBraveâ came as a surprise to me several months ago. And the second one did not disappoint too.
While being basically standalone novels that could be read separate if needed â the author still managed to use a very interesting approach in the storyline. Basically both novels run within the same timeframe.
But if you did not read the first one – you would not necessarily notice this, which is a very intriguing plot. But given the fact that I read the first book, I even sometimes felt compelled to take a look in the other novel to check if the settings really fit or not . (In the end I did not give in to this temptation but still it was an intriguing idea)
Dane is a sweetheart â interesting enough when reading the first book I did not notice that so much â as my focus was totally on Xander. Now on the other side to see Xander again through Daneâs eyes â there was that temptation again to go back and check up on in âBraveâ how exactly Xander saw Dane at certain points of the book.
Ari on the other side I could not fully connect to â where Xanderâs Eden was a very intense and deep woman â Ari felt cool and sometimes detached to me. I guess the author wanted to transfer the âmathematicalâ feeling, but at certain points I wondered if there was really a fire from her for Dane. (the other way around it was obvious from the start)
In the End it was a well written and intriguing Novel and I can not wait to read more from this author.
