The saga of Empress Heir-Apparent of Alaria, Jenanine Blackwater, and the imperial orb continues in PM Black’s The Solar Realm: Ascending Heir. Kora the Silver Slayer (the universe’s most deadly assassin) was been poisoned by demons and turned into a bloodthirsty, unpredictable, and animal-like being. Meanwhile, Julian and Ulinda Vi-land, children of the evil queen Bur-lea, were left with personal battles after their kingdom was overthrown by the enemy. Weapons Master Ilka discovers she not only has a new and unwanted telepathic talent but strange romantic feelings too. Armies, devastation, deaths, ruin, and, at last, love and a flicker of hope await readers.
The Solar Realm: Ascending Heir is the sequel to The Solar Realm, the first book in the series, and is gripping and enjoyable. PM Black plays off the emotional connections that readers have established with the characters since reading the first novel. A lot is going on in this story, and there are many characters. It is fast-paced and, at times, it can be a lot to keep up with, but Black combats this by providing detailed cover art, maps, character portraits, and helpful symbols. Unlike in the first book, the attention is distributed among several characters, namely Prince Cameron, Ilka, Jena, Julian, and Ulinda. Black’s ability to juggle the characters, plot the universe, and the events within it is truly admirable. Fans of Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone books would likely enjoy the Solar Realm series.
