Wynn Hygeort is stunned when Magiere and Leesil, along with the elven wolf Chap, show up at the Guild of Sagecraft. But Wynn cannot leave with her friends - she still must access the texts within the Guild's archives which may help her divine the locations of the last two Orbs sought by the Ancient Enemy. To complete her task - and protect the Orbs - Wynn must remain sequestered from her friends. But she's essentially a prisoner. One of the Guild's superiors is just as eager for Wynn to translate the ancient texts, but she knows the others will not permit her to share that knowledge - knowledge Magiere and Leesil desperately need if they're going to stop the Ancient Enemy from unleashing war on the land . . . Includes a preview for the first book in a brand-new series by Barb Hendee, The Mist-Torn Witches, from Roc. 'The Noble Dead Saga . . . is no simple myth, but rather a true epic, which stands at the highest levels of fantasy lore.'

Devoured this one as quickly as the first Noble Dead series. Leesil, Magiere and other familiar characters and the "voice" of the series finally back! What the last 3 books of this Noble Dead Second series should have been. Is it me or were the villains (wraith, "the children") kinda missing? When characters meet up, a new form of undead was mentioned and Wynn reminds herself to tell them about the wraith -- then nothing (guess maybe foreshadowing next book?).

Good and bad guys after Wynn, a lot of plot turns on getting her free, a lot on politics (city, elven, guild, etc.) and who is/isn't on their side--all disappointingly unresolved so will likely still be wading thru in the next book(s)...not going to say too much and have spoilers. Overall I did enjoy the read but was dissatisfied at how much was same-old-stuff and unresolved. Mixed feelings about recycled same-old-stuff because I did want what made the Noble Dead a favorite series back; could have used a lot more "new" stuff but it is book 10 of a series and it does seem to be back on track.

Now like everyone else am waiting to see if next book keeps me interested in this series. It would be disappointing to have them turn Leanalham character into another innocent-to-be-protected Wynn clone being dragged along on the journey but there was some foreshadowing of that (and maybe publisher, marketing or authors are listening to the readers having gotten way, way too much Wynn in the last 3 books but I really hope that's not how the next book handles the issue).

The first three in second Noble Dead series lacked the main characters and action/plot and just overall the very voice of the original series. Wynn character was too introspective, too clueless most of the time, and so little happened that if you wanna read the first series from [b:Dhampir|413814|Dhampir (Noble Dead, Series 1, #1)|Barb Hendee|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1309201291s/413814.jpg|1195018] thru [b:Child of a Dead God|1145177|Child of a Dead God (Noble Dead, Series 1, #6)|Barb Hendee|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1216403622s/1145177.jpg|1132624] then just a synopsis of the next three -- you should be just fine or skim thru and pay attention to stuff with orbs and other races. If publisher is smart, the first three of the second Noble Dead series should be appearing as a bundle deal. ( )

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

Between Their Worlds is Book #1 of Series #3 of the NOBLE DEAD SAGA and reunites the characters from the first two series after they had broken off to take care of their respective pieces of the puzzle.

It was so nice to have my favorites back in one place - for better or worse - and now that the baseline has been reestablished for what needs to be done and they've split up yet again, the mystery and action to come promises to be incredible!

Between Their Worlds allows the reader into the minds of Wynn, Chane, Magiere, Leesil, Chap and Shade as they meet up again after their long separation and continue on with some unlikely allies and the reappearance of some old friends.

Not all Noble Dead fans will love this book, and some may feel like it was an unnecessary filler novel. I personally feel that it was necessary for the continuation of the saga, and was a beautifully emotional read. To me, it was like coming home again...

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Between Their Worlds 4 Skulls. ( )
