Review of Hanging Pawns by Emersyn Vallis

Four stars

Hanging pawns Cover


We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads to follow…. 
It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… “people we love” and given a new life… 
One that can change us… save us… 
What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way? 

*Author’s Note: This book is told from a different point of view and is said to be more like a prequel to Adjournment. This book will also answer a lot of questions you were left with from Adjournment. Sidney and Simon’s story continues in Sacrifice and End Game.

Hanging Pawns is the second book in the Fate series. It’s set before Adjournment (the first in the series) and is from Mea’s point of view.

When reading Adjournment I enjoyed Mea’s character and wondered more about her story so it was great to read Hanging Pawns and learn Mea and Josh’s story.

There are some fantastic moments, I love Morgan and Molly! They always put a smile on my face as I read with nervous anticipation, waiting on their next devious plan.

That being said, I felt this story was a little rushed, there seemed to be a big build up in Josh and Mea’s relationship and I was waiting for the explosion between them, but instead it was more of a fizzle. The ending seemed rushed and I would of liked to have read more of Josh and Mea as a couple than as friends, I was also hoping for a scene between Mea and her mother, so I could feel more connected with Mea and her painful past.

I was thrilled to read a little of Simon without Sidney, there is definitely more to the story there and I can’t wait to find out more!
