Clanless (Nameless #2) by Jennifer Jenkins

Publication Date: October 4, 2016

Publisher: Month9Books

 

Blurb:

Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor.

Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.

He doesn’t know that Zo is very much alive and in another part of the region assisting Nameless refugees over a mountain swarming with wild men known as “Clanless.”

As each struggle to make sense of what their lives have become, they fight and claw to reach the Allied Camp, their last hope in bringing peace to the region.

But the road back to one another is treacherous and uncertain. And freedom will come with a price.

MY REVIEW

Hey everybody,

I had the distinct honor of reading an early draft of CLANLESS. I loved its predecessor NAMELESS and happily jumped at the chance to read the second book. In some cases, a sequel can be a let down, but not this time. I had complete confidence that Jennifer Jenkins could write a book equal to her first, and (yay!) my trust was not misplaced. CLANLESS is very simply put—awesome. Book two picks up right where book one left off—and thank goodness—because when we last heard from Gryphon, he was running for his life and convinced that Zo (the girl he cares for) was killed. The truth is, though Zo isn’t dead, she’s far from okay, or safe, or anything that’s remotely good. I kept turning pages wondering what was going to happen next … and to who … and when? I got all the plot twists, betrayal, surprises and drama in this action-packed fantasy that I hoped for. In fact, I may or may not have screamed at my computer waiting for answers the author cruelly kept from me, and/or shouted at the words typed on my screen that a certain character would get a clue! Ahhh! The anticipation was torture. And I kind of liked that.

What can I say? I’m a reading masochist. Ha ha!

If you haven’t read NAMELESS yet, I highly recommend that you read it first. So yes, do that. Then read CLANLESS (as if anyone could stop you) and come back here and give me bookish-thank you hugs for the story recommendation. Because? Trust me. You’re going to love this series. The books are flipping fantastic. 🙂

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:

Nameless (Nameless, #1)

Blurb:

Four clans have been at war for centuries: the Kodiak, the Raven, the Wolf and the Ram. Through brutal war tactics, the Ram have dominated the region, inflicting death and destruction on their neighbors.

 

Seventeen-year-old Zo is a Wolf and a Healer who volunteers to infiltrate the Ram as a spy on behalf of the allied clans. She offers herself as a Ram slave, joining the people who are called the “nameless.” Hers is a suicide mission – Zo’s despair after losing her parents in a Ram raid has left her seeking both revenge and an end to her own misery. But after her younger sister follows her into Rams Gate, Zo must find a way to survive her dangerous mission and keep her sister safe.

 

What she doesn’t expect to find is the friendship of a young Ram whose life she saves, the confusing feelings she develops for a Ram soldier, and an underground nameless insurrection. Zo learns that revenge, loyalty and love are more complicated than she ever imagined in the first installment of this two-book series.

With her degree in History and Secondary Education, Jennifer had every intention of teaching teens to love George Washington and appreciate the finer points of ancient battle stratagem. (Seriously, she’s obsessed with ancient warfare.) However, life had different plans in store when the writing began. As a proud member of Writers Cubed, and a co-founder of the Teen Author Boot Camp, she feels blessed to be able to fulfill both her ambition to work with teens as well as write Young Adult fiction.

Jennifer has three children who are experts at naming her characters, one loving, supportive husband, a dog with little-man syndrome, and three chickens (of whom she is secretly afraid).
