Two Excellent YA Fantasy Sequels

The second book in a series faces a lot of pressure; here are two YA fantasy sequels that satisfy.

Starsight by Brandon Sanderson, Delacorte Press, 2019. 480 pages.

Reading Level: YA, ages 15-18

Recommended For: Ages 15 and up

A new mission and more danger threaten Spensa and her home. While Spensa isn’t spewing quite as much sass in this sequel, the action and drama are high. Also, the alien world expands, with an array of interesting species and cultures though the gender fluidity of some of these species may be a consideration for some readers. Perfect for fans of sci-fi or futuristic fantasy such as the Lunar Chronicles. Sequel to *Skyward.

*Nomad by R. J. Anderson, Enclave Escape, 2020.  288 pages.

Reading Level: YA, ages 15-18

Recommended For: Ages 15 and up

Just out this month, Nomad is book two in the Flight and Flame trilogy. Danger continues to threaten the piskeys of the Delve, and Ivy is determined to find a solution. As Ivy and her unexpected (and dubious) friend Martin roam Cornwall, Ivy’s dreams are haunted by the memories of a spriggan boy from Cornwall’s past. With a touch of romance, and more than enough adventure and excitement, readers will be ready for the trilogy’s conclusion coming early next year. (And it is a good one!) Sequel to *Swift.

Note: This reviewer received an advance reader copy of the book in exchange for a fair review.
