Trust: The Hero Chronicles (Volume 2) - by Tim Mettey
Trust: The Hero Chronicles is the second entry in this YA series and is every bit as good as the first, Secrets: The Hero Chronicles.
It's been three months since Nicholas learned he was a part of the Thusians, an ancient group of secret guardians of mankind, destined to sacrifice their lives at any given time, to save those around them.
Book two, further develops the mythos of the Thusians, their mission and those that would stand in their way. At the same time it's about relationships, the importance of trust in those relationships and learning who to trust.
Tim Mettey does a very nice job of weaving life lesson's into his storyline. Without being heavy-handed, there are teaching moments which many YA readers can benefit from. The story itself is rather simple, with Nicholas meeting a number of challenges while dealing with the normal ups and downs of life as a teenager.
The climax of book two has several nice twists and some big surprises. One thing, I'm still trying to figure out is the Tic Tac effect. If you read the book 1 or 2, you'll understand what I mean.
If you're a younger reader, or know someone who is in middle school and up, I can strongly recommend Trust: The Hero Chronicles (volume 2), but I would consider reading book 1, Secrets: The Hero Chronicles first and, as of the posting of this review, it is available for FREE for the kindle at Amazon.com.
