Mini-Review: Beneath the Earth by Skye MacKinnon and Laura Greenwood

Who knows what awaits them underground…

The Staran has been healed, but that doesn’t mean that the world is safe yet. There are new problems to overcome, and new allies to be made.

The Seven Wardens’ time has come, but will they be able to fulfill their destiny without breaking under the pressure?

And will they get the waffles they crave?4

My thoughts

I had such a crush on Agent 99 on the Get Smart tv show.

I don’t usually start a review with the ending, but Skye MacKinnon and Laura Greenwood came this close to making me cry. Whew…it was close. I am an ugly crier. 

Beneath the Earth was a little all over the place, but I kind of think it had to be to end up where it did. There is a lot going on in Macey’s life and it looks like a lot more to come. MacKinnon and Greenwood added a fourth to Macey’s mix and I don’t know if he is permanent. There seems to be a big question mark about him, plus the marking on Macey’s back from the last book. This was one of my questions about Ronan and his connection to Macey. (Plus Nessie’s unfinished thought…things that make you go hmmm.)

There is another big battle scene and yet again there is a moment in the scene that had me thinking. Someone even describes the scene to Macey and that part is left out of it…things that make you go “hmmmm”. 

There is one grammar issue where the wrong name is inputted that makes you scratch your head and read the two sentences a couple of times, but it is not in a huge scene. One spelling issue on top of that one. Small issues.

MacKinnon and Greenwood manage to weave an intricate tale with buried treasures within each story. I wonder how some parts are going to affect the future. I don’t want to give anything away. This is why sometimes I wish I could read some series live and that a fan board was created so a discussion could be had. I have some questions.

Once again I am deeply involved in a story and I love it. The “Seven Wardens” series is totally worth investing time in. I really liked Beneath the Earth even though at times I was spread too thin wondering where everyone was.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
