I have been following The NecroSeam Chronicles since the beginning. It is no secret that I love this epic fantasy series. Ellie Raine never disappoints me with her unique characters and complex plots. This third offering in the series is as good as the first two, if not better. Pearl of Emerald takes up the story where the second book left off, but a few things have changed. Xavier is no longer sharing a body with his twin. But as much as everyone wanted this, it has created some complications. He is weak and the realms are at war. One of the things I like most about this book, and indeed this entire series, is that answers beget more questions and solutions only create more problems. Our heroes must constantly level up if they want to stay ahead of the game. And honestly, Ellie Raine must level up if she wants to keep readers interested in these characters and this complex feudal world of magic. I’m happy to report that she has done just that in Pearl of Emerald.
It is hard to say what I like best about Pearl of Emerald. My first instinct is to say it's the wonderful characters. But then I realized many of them are wonderful because of the excellent world building and complex systems of magic. So maybe this well thought out world and setting is the star. It is honestly very hard to choose when everything is done so well. So, to keep it simple, I’m going to say it is the fantastic writing of Ellie Raine that is the standout element in Pearl of Emerald. I think most readers will agree with that.
