Please read the full Red Headed Book Lover 5-Star Review by Aimee Ann
—A couple of months ago I read and reviewed a marvelous book called Nila: Water, which is written by the equally remarkable author Daniel G. Linsteadt. The story is a bewitching one full of breathtaking events that will have the readers mind full of wonder. The story was so radiant that upon finishing it, I immediately wanted to read book two Nila: Air and wow what a sequel book lovers!
... The story laced throughout Nila: Air is pure fantasy and will send fantasy fans wild because the fantasy laced throughout the book is mesmerizing. The journey the reader encounters in Nila: Air is just as brilliant, if not more brilliant than the journey in book one Nila: Water and I will explain why. I loved the story in Nila: Water, so much so that I awarded it five stars! But Nila: Water is the first book in the series so of course, it features heavily on plot and world development which I must add was dazzling! My point is that in Nila: Air the world is already established by the incredible author Daniel G. Linsteadt, so now Linsteadt has free reign, he can expand on the book even more and go crazy with plot ideas, characters and beings and that is why I feel that I loved Nila: Air just that bit more because the world is established and the journey thrilling!
Daniel G. Linsteadt is seriously an insanely good fantasy writer because he knows what to write to entertain and keep his readers thrilled until the very end. Linsteadt has many strong writing abilities, but his core talent has to be that of world development. The development of the story in Nila: Air is breathtaking because the world the reader encounters in the first book is expanded on even more. I admit I was shocked by this because I did not believe it could be because the world was so flawlessly and immaculately developed in book one, but Linsteadt surprised me and expanded on the story even more, and that deserves a round of applause.
As Nila: Air is a fascinating, mesmerizing and riveting story that should not be missed, I, of course, have to award the stellar read a magical five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below and check out the first book in the series; you won’t regret it!
"Thanks to Seth, the Nila have found a new home, but once they start exploring they realize their new world might not be the paradise they hope for. There is minimal plant life, very few aquatic animals, and fleas, Zerths, constantly nipping at them. To complicate matters, Seth learns the swimming Nila aren't they only Nila on the planet. On a nearby island, flying Nila prepare to migrate north to avoid an oncoming threat. When Seth learns that this threat will also affect his swimming family, he must convince them to leave the planet, while discovering his true purpose as Nila.
Nila: Air is the sequel to Nila: Water, and the second book in the Nila Trilogy. It is full of imaginative waterscapes and new creatures. Linsteadt has crafted another science fiction masterpiece. But the real brilliance behind it is the characters. The book is full of complicated characters with unique motivations, clouding their judgement. Some harbor grudges against Seth's dad, Sam, while other's want to protect their families at all cost. The combination makes for a spellbinding tale full of wonder. Highly recommended." – Ben Adams
