Miles and the Soldier is the second book in The Acre Series. This one starts off right after the end of the first book, so I would recommend reading book 1, Juno and the Lady before starting this one.
I have really come to enjoy this fantasy series! I’ve read book 1 as well as two novellas in the series, and what I am absolutely loving is the characters! I was so happy to have so many of the characters from book 1 being incorporated into the second book! In addition to having these old friends back in the story, there are also a great cast of new characters that are added, and I loved them to!
This book also introduces a new world, or acre, to explore, and I loved the descriptive writing that really brought it all to life! I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to more in the series in the future!
Where to Find This Book:
The front door swung open. The icy blast of air hit Miles full in the face.
For the first time in months, a smile played across his lips.
Miles knows his life changed when the Lady’s sword cut deep into his back. He knows he’ll never achieve his lifelong dream.
Then a stab of joyous pain slices down his leg. With renewed hope, Miles leaves behind the shackles of Dr Viktor’s house and travels east, to the training grounds of the Queen’s Guard.
Will Miles get the chance to compete for a place? And will they accept him in the warrior’s holy ground of Battleacre?
The Acre Story follows Miles’s journey through the eastern lands as our epic fantasy continues.
