My so-called family lied.
My friends lied.
The only guy I ever liked lied.
My mentor, the one I was supposed to trust lied.
My entire existence is built on lies and yet now they want my help. Scratch that, now
they need my help. I'll play the good soldier, but I am no longer the person I was before. This time it will be on my terms. I will trust no one.
I am a weapon. I am Jordyn.
“‘You never know, I could totally take advantage of you while you were drunk on my kisses.’ ‘That’s how you would decide to take advantage of me, by knocking me over the head?’”
Favorite Character: Jordyn. Duh.
“I couldn’t tell you what day of the week it was, and quite frankly, I didn’t care.”
My Musings: I have to start out by saying that Tiffany King is one of the most Indie-Credible authors around. And if you didn’t know that, then check out my Indie-Credible tour stop and say hi to Tiffany, Jordyn, and Emrys. I had a blast getting to know all three of them better.
Jordyn and the Caverns of Gloom pick up right where Jordyn left off. When Jordyn gets back from her five week hiatus, she is thrust right back into all of the action. Her and Emrys must venture into the Caverns of Gloom in order to save her best friend.
“‘You have to wrestle it to the ground. Once you get them on their backs, they are unable to right themselves, something to do with the size of their legs.’ ‘Let me get this straight. You want to pimp me out to distract this goat thing by flashing him my belly button, all so you can wrestle him to the ground so he can’t get back up?’”
Jordyn and the Caverns of Gloom was filled to the brim with action. For the most part, there was always something going on and when there wasn’t, it still wasn’t boring. Everything in this novel was necessary to the plot: there wasn’t any meaningless fluff. The plot line was perfectly concoted with the story climaxing at just the right moment. Tiffany King topped it off by leading into the third novel with a last line that will keep you gaping.
“I laughed harshly at his description. ‘Collector’ was one way to put it. I could think of a few other choice ways to describe it, like ‘backstabbing asshat leech.’”
Jordyn was just as strong, if not stronger, of a female heroine in this novel than the last. Even though she was feeling alone and betrayed, she still put her life on the line for those who betrayed her. This really showed how selfless of a character that she is. She’s also very sarcastic and snarky, which makes her a very fun character to read. And the thing that makes her the best is the fact that she is as tough as nails. Both physically and mentally. She could kick anyone’s butt anytime, anyday, and she could go through a ton and not break. And that’s what made her character so amamzing.
“That was why I loved her so much. She was everything I wasn’t.”
Emrys was a character that I couldn’t help biut love regardless of how sketchy he was for the duration of the novel. At one point, I’d be positive that he was on the good side, and the next, I wouldn’t be so sure. Regardless of his iffy decisions and actions, he was a great, well written character. He continued to maintain his mysterious charisma he had during book one, which pulled me in that much more.
Jordyn and the Caverns of Gloom was another fantastically written novel from Tiffany King, and it completely lived up to and surpassed my expectations. I can’t wait to see what beautiful work Tiffany brings to us next.
