Tears of War is the second book in the Dragon’s Call series. The first edition, Embers At Galdrilene, was so amazing I actually began counting down the days until the second installment would come out. I waited, and waited, and waited. It felt as though the book would never come out! When it did, I was not disappointed in the slightest. If possible, this book is even better than the first. What I so love about A.D. Trosper’s writing style is that her characters seem so alive it is as though they have been lifelong friends. The places in her books are so realistic I am sure I have been there. Her books play out like a movie screen inside my head. My heart sang with happiness at parts, and in others my very soul mourned. Exaggeration? Hardly. It’s hard to NOT be sucked straight into the world created in this series. I dare you to try and stay in the real world while reading it. Go ahead and try. Without giving too much away, I will say that there is a part in the book that killed me. It ripped out my very soul. Seriously. I cried, and I cried, and I cried. It was the kind of crying jag that leaves you nauseous and breathless, with your face aching and your eyes refusing to see clearly. That’s all I can say, however. Now, do I recommend this book? I would think the answer would obviously be yes. I believe everyone should read this awe-inspiring, thrilling read. I simply can not praise it enough. Just be prepared for an attachment to the story and the characters. Be prepared for plenty of raw emotion and vivid detailing. Be prepared to be swept away into the world which A.D. Trosper has created for us.
