twobrothersheritageAfter I read and reviewed Two Brothers: Origin, the first book in the Ramtalan Trilogy--I knew that the others would appear on my reading list the moment they were available.  I needed to tie up all of the loose ends from book one--so, I was pretty excited to read and review Two Brothers: Heritage by Sofia Diana Gabel.  What did I think of the second book of the Ramtalan Trilogy?

I received a complimentary copy of this ebook for use in my review.  All opinions and comments are my own.

Quick summary of Two Brothers:  Heritage.  In the second book in the Ramtalan Trilogy, Argus Dachel, a far-from-ordinary half-alien teen, finds himself mixed up in the battle between a hostile faction of Invaders and the peaceful Ramtalans he’s come to know as his friends. With his brother Tai held captive at the Citadel and disturbing news about his father, Argus has to come to grips with the truth about who he really is. Not only is the government agency, the Astronomical Urgent Recovery Administration, AURA, hot on his tail, but his relationship with his girlfriend Lola is in jeopardy. As his special abilities increase and become stronger, he risks exposure and capture. When the enemy closes in and the Citadel is attacked, it seems victory is impossible, but losing means certain death. He must find some way to protect everyone around him, but winning is impossible. Or is it?

Two Brothers:   Heritage offers the same fast paced action as book one.   Gabel continues to write from multiple points of view--moving quickly from scene to scene and keeping the action moving. There are just enough twists, turns and surprises to keep readers hooked through to the end.  She also creates just enough crumbs to lead readers toward book three as well.

The Ramtalan Trilogy is best read as a series.  While you could certainly dive into Two Brothers:  Heritage without reading the first book, I would begin at the beginning.  Book Two picks up where the first book trailed off.  I think reading the series in order is the best way to understand all of the characters and the complexity of their relationships--and better understand the significance of many of the scenes in book two.

Would I recommend Two Brothers:   Heritage by Sofia Diana Gabel?  This series is, so far, one of my favorite young adult science fiction series.  I enjoyed book two just as much as the first one--and I am still excited to read the last book in the series.  I would certainly recommend this series--but, I would read the books in order since the stories are not really stand alone segments.
