Justice picks up right where Surrender ended. It's also a much darker novel than Surrender. Krishani is completely heart-broken after the events in Surrender. He feels he has no reason to live. The people of Avristar are blaming Krishani for the attack on their lands. He still doesn't understand the terms of being the Ferryman. He only knows that he doesn't want the job. I liked that we learned more about the Flames, and what they can do. There's still a lot I don't understand, but I'm hoping will be touched upon later in the series. Tiki is my favorite flame. She's strong-willed, and doesn't spill all of her information to anyone. Kla scared the mess out of me. He's just so unyielding and rude. We also finally meet Krishani's ancestors, and find out why they left him in Avristar. I have to say I'm not too impressed with them. You'll see why as you read the book. Mallorn proves to be an invaluable resource. He is full of so much knowledge. He's a great mentor to all of the younger characters. Now on to Pux. I thought it was a fun free spirit in Surrender. It took me a while to appreciate his character in Justice. He's a hot mess, but you can't help but respect him by the end of the book.You have plenty of action/battle scenes, but the most fascinating battle is the one Krishani has with himself. He wants to give up, but doesn't want to. He's constantly trying to justify his actions. That proves to be the most intense battle throughout the book.And my goodness, the way it ends!!!! I'm not sure what to expect now. I can't wait to see how the story unfolds from the events that take place!
