Wow! Accelerant was absolutely packed with action! Once again, it was exhilarating to return to the amazing lands that made up this fantasy world in the Abiassa’s Fire series. This story has so much to recommend it: action, danger, corruption, romance, guilt, despair…the list goes on and on.
I definitely recommend reading Embers, book one, first. There are many, many characters in these stories and in both books, it took me some time to make sure I understood who each person was as they were introduced. Accelerant builds immediately upon where Embers left off.
I loved the twists and turns that this story took. The author kept me guessing at how not only Haegan and Thiel’s stories would progress, but also Kaelyria and other characters who I grew to care for. It is hard to decide what I loved best about this book, but I am definitely partial to the story line that took place in Legier’s Heart. I am absolutely on pins and needles to find out what will happen in book three!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
He’ll destroy the world. But first he has to save it.
The Nine Kingdoms bleed. Leaderless, ravaged, the land awaits deliverance from Poired Dyrth’s devastating campaign. But what if one blight can only be cleansed by another?
The promised Fierian is known by many names. Judge. Destroyer. Scourge. And now one other: Haegan, Prince of Seultrie. Once a cripple, now a gifted Accelerant, Haegan can no longer run from the truth. But neither can he be reconciled to it. He knows only one thing for certain: as the only able-bodied heir to the Fire Throne, he must return to the Nine and fight for his people.
But there are insidious forces at work. When reality itself falls into question, Haegan struggles to know where to fight, who to trust. Caught between duty to his country and duty to the world, Haegan must see clearly enough to choose the right path to save his devastated world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
An Army brat, Ronie Kendig grew up in the classic military family, with her father often TDY and her mother holding down the proverbial fort. Their family moved often, which left Ronie attending six schools by the time she’d entered fourth grade. Her only respite and “friends” during this time were the characters she created.
It was no surprise when she married a military veteran—her real-life hero—in June 1990. Married more than twenty years, Ronie and her husband, Brian, homeschool their children, the first of whom graduated in 2011. Despite the craziness of life, Ronie finds balance and peace with her faith, family and their Maltese Menace in Northern Virginia.
Ronie has a deep love and passion for people, especially hurting people, which is why she pursued and obtained a B.S. in Psychology from Liberty University. Ronie speaks nationally, volunteers with writer’s organizations, including American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and My Book Therapy, and mentors other writers.
Excellent review, Brittany!
