Alison Sinclair - Lightborn Review:
Lightborn is a solid sequel to Darkborn, picking up immediately after the first book ended.It continues the series with Sinclair's excellent wordcraft and dazzling world building undiminished.
The story is well paced, appreciably convoluted and unexpected, and is highly recommended.In contradiction to the editorial review I didn't find the book a particularly difficult read, just one targetted at a mature reader rather than the burgeoning young adult genre (which I personally appreciate); no need to understand whatever "stiff regency prose" is to understand the book.
The new characters shift the focus to court politics and intrigue and the book centers around unravelling the assassination of the previous Prince and searching for the elusive Shadowborn.
Sinclair is a solid writer with good pacing and storycrafting, so I'm confident these will be tied up well in Shadowborn (the final book of the trilogy) but the sudden, unsatisfying ending - signalled, it feels, only by a page count - is something a reader should be prepared for.
I felt Telmaine's struggle between her good-but-dull husband and exciting-but-scandalous new friend really helped define the evolution of her character in the first book, and the lack seems to leave her a bit diminished in this one.
This is really more of a personal gripe, but I love her position as a contrast to Telmaine - a rival for affection that could never be a mistress, a warrior rather than a lady, and so forth - and it was really disappointing not to learn much about her personality.
