Download Epub Format ✓ Runebreaker PDF by ☆ Alex R. Kahler Miniseries This is the second book in the Runebinder chronicles by Alex R Kahler I was excited when I received the ARC of this book as I loved the first book in the series, Runebinder I assumed that this story would be a continuation of the first book, but it wasn t at all Though it s set in the same world, Runebreaker follows a different main character named Aiden, and the story takes place in Scotland I have to admit that I was a tad disappointed as I was looking forward to readingabout Tenn s story, who was the hero in the first book This book does connect back to Runebinder briefly at the very end but not really in any satisfying sort of way.
So Aiden the protagonist in this book is a Hunter just like Tenn in the first book Hunters att Magic Is SinAidan Desires Only One Thing To Rule Arrogant, Headstrong And Driven By The Element Of Fire, He Will Stop At Nothing To Bring The Evil Howls That Destroyed Scotland To Their Knees But Fire Is A Treacherous Element, And The Very Magic That Brought Him To Power Could Burn His World To AshEspecially With The Blood Of His Fellow Hunters On His HandsDriven By A Bloodlust He Can T Control And Dark Whispers That May Not Be Entirely In His Head, He And His Magic Eschewing Friend Kianna Will Do Whatever It Takes To Liberate Their Broken World Even At The Risk Of Confronting The Church Even At The Risk Of Losing His HumanityBut Power Isn T The Only Thing On Aidan S Mind He S Falling For The Intoxicating Tomas, An Incubus Who Offers Everything Aidan Desires For A PriceAnd If That Price Burns The World Down, Well Aidan Is Used To Playing With Fire Well, at least Kahler s author s note at the end of the book directly addresses one thing that bothered me about reading this one how bloody unlikable our protagonist Aidan is Nowhere near as emotionally open as Tenn, or as loving, Aidan likely because he s open to Fire instead of Water is self absorbed, destructive, and manages to be evensusceptible to the sinister machinations of a certain incubus And he has a way of basically burning almost every bridge that he crosses, losing tons of friends and lovers in the process But then when he s really in over his head, it shows, and that s when I can t help but sympathize with him And luckily, this isn t the end of the road for this series yet, I d hope because the ending of this book promises, at long last, a combination and possibly conclusion of the stories begun in this book and in Runebinder.

I am on the fence here between not liking it and it was okI received a copy of this via NetGalley and the publisher Harlequin TEEN in exchange for an honest reviewI originally wanted to read this book because I had read the first in the series and I was hoping and praying for maybe some explanations or some sense to be made in this book that the first one lacked I will tell you right now you will get no answers from this book to questions from the first book You will only end up withquestions and an intense dislike for the MC, Aidan who is probably the most selfish, self absorbed, and just mental MC I ve ever had the displeasure of reading about Being in his head was disturbing Despite my dislike for him.
his sidekick Kianna was the bomb She w I couldn t I tried, but this is the first book I have DNF d in years Right form the start it felt forced with gratuitous tropes.
5 stars I didn t realize upon starting this book that it wasn t a direct continuation of the story That it could in theory be read as a stand alone I think that threw me quite a bit I knew the story followed Aiden from reading the description but I really thought it would jump between him and Tenn it does not Aiden is a basically brand new character in a whole other country Aiden is the opposite of Tenn Aiden is an asshole who wants power and has no regrets about anything He kills as he pleases and doesn t feel bad about it All he cares about is himself The story is okay Aiden definitely is It my favorite character ever I can see the appeal of a completely unapologetic character such as him, but it s not for me I really hope Lukas comes back in the next book I enjoyed his character for the short time he was in the book I m so glad Tenn i Kahler follows up Runebinder with a fiery sequel While Tenn has been fighting his battles, across the seas Aidan is fighting for power and there is little he won t do to gain itThere was no room in this world for sadness and regret There was only the flash, the burn, the energy and excitment Life was a flame, not a flood You lived and you burned and you burned out Drowning was not an optionRunebreaker has a completely different feel to Runebinder, Aidan is full of rage and the pull of Fire and the whispers of the Dark Lady are hard to ignore In some ways Aidan is unlikable he s egotistical, arrogant and there are times when he seems irredeemable However there is a reason for this and I think it s really important to read the author s note which explains why Aidan is the way he is And I think it s great that Kahler as given us something of a queer antihero, be

I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalleyI haven t read the first book in this series, but from what I understand this isof a standalone set in the same universe with a small cameo by characters from book one towards the end At any rate, I never felt confused while reading it and was sucked in right from the beginning I definitely thought the world building and magic system was very fun and unique, but what really made this book for me was the characters I think I can probably explain best with an excerpt from the author s note at the endAidan has been called difficulttimes than I can count Unlikable Narcissistic Anger driven Over a decade ago, when Runebinder first came to light, I poured a great deal of my own emotions onto the page As I struggled with what it meant to be gay, as I yearned for a world where I didn t have to constantly exp 2.
