Heroes of Arcania: Fortune's Favor (HoA #2) by Liz Long Review

Hey readers! Ethan here on this very special Thursday with a review for you all. This past Thursday was release day for the second novel in an incredible new series that's taking Summer 2016 by storm. The latest release from one of my all time favorite authors. I'm so pumped to share my thoughts. On the chopping block today? Heroes of Arcania: Fortune's Favor by Liz Long! Before we get to my thoughts, here's a bit about the novel and out author:

Nova will learn it takes more than sheer strength to be a superhero. Her world implodes when Fortune strikes back for all the trouble she's caused. His dangerous games put everyone around her at risk, especially when he decides to turn Arcania against its precious Heroes. Nova wants to protect Arcania, but how does she save a city that doesn't want her help?

Cole has no idea how to deal with his sister Penelope, especially now that she's learned the truth about their family secret. Thanks to Fortune, she's headed down a dark path, one with no return. Torn between helping Nova and protecting his sister, Cole will be forced to make a choice. Tensions rise as Cole and Nova discover war will come to Arcania if they don't get Fortune off the streets...or preferably six feet under.

Nova and Cole might have each other, but will they lose everything else in their mission to save Arcania?

My Thoughts:

In a world full of turmoil, escaping away into the pages of a good series is an amazing way to escape reality, if even for a moment. While many books will whisk you away to a land of make-believe, many cannot depict our own world in positive light these days. Many cannot see that light. Few authors can deliver the emotional uplifting required to lift the spirits of readers today. Liz Long, however, is one of those authors. The world needs heroes. And Long delivers.

Last month, Long rocked the bookish community with the release of Heroes of Arcania: SuperNova, the first in a YA Superhero trilogy that is set to take Summer 2016 by storm. I, along with many other readers, absolutely devoured book one and couldn't wait to get my hands on the second installment of the series. Book could book two live up to the hype?

Yes. So. Much. Yes.

I'm one of those weird readers who actually finds second novels in a series (particularly a trilogy) to be the best. The second installment is always one full of emotional storybuilding and character development before the big showdowns in the finale. While some readers aren't always impressed by that, I know I sure am. On top of those points, Long goes even further and delivers some huge action-packed scenes in Fortune's Favor. If you were expecting a slow-paced feels-fest, you're looking in the wrong place.

From the very first page (which picks up immediately after book one), we're drawn back into the world of Nova Benson, Fortune, and the Heroes of Arcania. The stakes are higher than ever when not only are our hero's lives, but their identities, are at stake. Can Nova and the gang stop Fortune from his biggest heist yet? Will Nova avenge her sister's death and finally bring an end to Fortune's reign of terror?

Fans of Long and HoA will love what Long has done with this second installment in the series. I can't say much else for fear of spoilers, but trust me: you won't be able to set down this high-octane adventure full of thrills and suspense. Fortune's Favor may be Long's best work to-date! Expect the unexpected in this one folks, Long is here to surprise!

As you can see, I was clearly a huge fan of Heroes of Arcania: Fortune's Favor and I am so glad I have had the opportunity to share these thoughts with you all. I am so excited to be granting HoA: Fortune's Factor a well-deserved, near-perfect 5-star review. I highly recommend this series to all fans of sci-fi, paranormal, or superheros. Add this series to your TBR today!


Alright readers, that's all I have for you today on the topic of Heroes of Arcania: Fortune's Favor. This was just the second in an incredible that's being rapid released this summer so definitely be on the lookout for more info about the rest of the series. I've already read book three and can promise you that you're going to love this finale! Be sure to add this one to your TBR today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Reading!
