Book 2 of The Thulukan Chronicles
Written by Maer WilsonGenre: Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy
While Maer Wilson gave enough information about the characters, and the events that happened in the previous installment of The Thulukan Chronicles, I couldn't help but feel that I was missing out on something. Probably because the author created likable characters, so likable that I wanted to know more about them.
Portals is a novel filled with Light Ones (or angels), Dark Ones (or daemons), Elves and many more magical races living in other worlds. Worlds that can be accessed through magical portals. The two main characters are humans/mortals, with various supernatural powers. LaFi is a medium, who can also see and hear ghosts. Her husband Thulu, who can only see ghosts, is a Finder. He can find anything or anyone anywhere. They are friends with a gay couple: Reo, a medium; and Sloane, an Elf.
While the style of writing is deliberately simple, the plot is rich in events, off-world travels, characters, and dialogues. The character development gives a good insight into the close bond between LaFi and Thulu, and the personalities of other recurring characters.
However, while I enjoyed their adventures, they felt a bit static to me. I would have liked to read more details about people and events. I would have liked to feel more on edge and worry more for the characters' safety. This said, I'm likely to catch another volume of the Thulukan Chronicles when I get the time.
