In The Endless Shore, new and old characters come together in the continuing conflict between two malevolent forces. The way the story is unravelled gives the perfect amount of suspense and excitement, as well as gripping you with some darker scenes. Again Simon adds pieces that entice to read on, to find out what becomes of the mysterious entities showing up in Aona. I found The Endless Shore to be outstanding and cannot wait for the next instalment of the Aona series.
Secret Roads continues the battle of evil against evil, following the struggles of the people caught in the middle. It creates new plot turns and twists that keep you wanting to read on. When I finally got the time to sit down and read, my eyes didn't leave the pages for hours. Simon gives the readers just enough to keep them hook but not reveal too much until the time is right. If you liked Oblivion's Forge then you'll love Secret Road's.
Oblivion's Forge follows a varied cast of character's each plagued by tormented pasts and drawn by supernatural forces, struggling to survive in a dark world. The story starts off slowly, giving you small fragments that tug on your curiosity, making you want to read more, and it develops into a darker plot.
I enjoyed following following the characters in their journey to survive and would recommend this book. You won't be disappointed.
