By B. Kristin McMichael
I received a free copy of Chrysoprase from the author for my honest opinion.
Chrysoprase is the second book in the Chalcedony Chronicles. Click here for my review of the first book, Carnelian.
Chrysoprase picks off basically where Carnelian ended. The prologue is very handy to catch you up to speed if you cannot fully remember the events of Carnelian (like myself).
The first few chapters of Chrysoprase deal with the consequences of time-travel, specifically with what happened at the end of Carnelian.
Normally I am not a great fan of romance sub-plots, but McMichael managed to not make it too in-your-face to get annoying as the often tend to. As well as this romance, we are unaware of what some peoples motives are, and I suspect (and hope) that we will find out what they are in the next book, Aventurine.
I ended up enjoying this second book more than the first, mainly due to the fact that we got to see more time travel, and spend way more time in ancient Egypt. I have always been fascinated with Egypt since I was a young girl and I loved hearing a new take on what others thought that the time was like, as we will never truly know unless we can also time travel and experience it for ourselves.
