Insight Kindling[Read] ➵ Insight Kindling By Chess Desalls – Oaklandjobs.co.uk Calla faces charges against her for changing the past Her use of the Travel Glasses resulted in the creation of two writings that affected the lives of Edgar the inventor of the Travel Glasses and Val Calla faces charges against her for changing the past Her use of the Travel Glasses resulted in the creation of two writings that affected the lives of Edgar the inventor of the Travel Glasses and Valcas their prior owner Now Calla must explain her actions before the Time and Space Travel Agency The hearing does not end well The travel commissioner finds Calla guilty as charged and forces her to choose between two harsh penalties Despite the risk of becoming lost herself Calla accepts a dangerous travel mission that may help her find her father She teams up with a group of talented travelers While working with them she soon discovers that she has a special travel talent of her own Pursued by the sentient being of white light that’s been tracking her father’s bloodline Calla fears her newfound talents may not be enough to protect her and her teammates before they complete their mission. I don't know maybe this would be appealing to a middle grade audience? I just didn't connect and it triggered one of my pet peeves Also I read it after reading a different book that was a stunning time travel novel which could be influencing how I feel about this book While this is a time travel series there was no time travel in this bookI felt like very little really happened in this book and that the focus was on the relationship between Calla and Valcas I'm telling you right now I am NOT a fan of her love interest Valcas is brooding high maintenance non communicative distant and all around asshat I also didn't like the insinuation from her father that SHE had some obligation to be careful with Valcas' heart WTF does that mean? It sounded almost like she was being told she had to love him back because he was so fragile Serious pet peeve for me here Just because he's a sad sad broken manboy doesn't mean you need to be in a relationship with him or try to fix him When you see someone like him run away in the other direction as fast as you can He can't love himself let alone someone else He is NOT relationship material view spoiler I also can't stand that the moment he tells her they can't be together she is so damn brokenhearted she becomes obsessed with going back in time and trying over and over to make it work conseuences to herself be damned hide spoiler Thank you netgalley for sending me this book in exchange of an honest review Overall I think this book is a decent read it focused a lot on Calla and Valcas relationship Which I guess I'm fine with since i don't really hate the pair Fascinating isn't it? Plaka said to me the worlds are beautiful despite being cluttered with all the moves around them and us Everything happens so uickly that we don't get to appreciate the full beauty of all of it until we are frozen in time' His words rang in my ears I just love this uote Great SeriesI am really enjoying these books Traveling adventures Calla and how she learns who she is and an adventure in finding her father through not only familiar worlds but unfamiliar worlds as well Definitely a series I have not been able to put down I can't wait to see what comes next I loved the character development in this book Beware of mild spoilersInsight Kindling starts off right where we left off with Travel Glasses which was amazing since I started Insight Kindling within the same hour I finished Travel Glasses I read a few other reviews before writing this one as it's pretty complicated to review a seuel without making it very much alike to the firstI ship RayCalla plenty than I do CallaValcas I find CallaValcas very weird especially by the ending of this book Calla's reaction to Valcas confession thing was very unreal overdramatic and a bit childish As mentioned in my review for Travel Glasses we grow to dislike Valcas then he turns out to be good and Calla begins to swoon? It was too uick He kidnapped terrorised and stalked you Calla Yet she still likes him and gets extreme when her heart gets broken by Valcas Valcas was so caring for Calla through this novel I liked him Then this action this STUPID action which he believes is to protect Calla it ruined it for me I don't like Valcas any especially after the epilogue Valcas became something we call Jerks He kissed her leading her onto a romancy we can be together now then it switched around No No romance No we can be together Its all your life is too short compared to mine its not worth it go love this guy instead I understand most of Calidora's reaction to this but I don't understand how she came to love him so uick Oh and when Valcas said he would do anything to regain her trust or something among the lines of that WHAT A LIERay was always sweet always charming and smart He is a complicated character or atleast I predict he will be in the next book Ray was very kind to Calla ever since the start Calla had a liking for him The novel began to lean towards of a romantic theme than the sci fi There was a bit of repetition with certain scenes and dialogues However its is still a uick and gripping read Dessalls writing was just as smooth and simply followable as the first novelI hate Calla's father I cant stand him He is so annoying has no clue how to be a father really pisses me off Plaka Callas Father gives no thought to his actions at all or he is just so very selfish I cant I cant come to liking him An example is that when he reunited with his daughter his reaction is to get angry at Valcas Plaka even critiues Calla There was never any fatherly moments there were times when Calla would start one but Plake would just shoo them awayCalla continues to develop my linking for Calidora expanded into another world She is a complicated character yet easy to empathise with Heck even I felt deeply betrayed by Valcas Ivory is introduced in Insight Kindling is is truly a character anyone would come to love She is fun to read about has plenty of talent along with wit and uite the humour World building was perfect in Insight Kindling I absolutely loved the fire falls That whole setting was vivid was so damn original Just like the story so damn originalI look forward to the next book in the series as this was an amazing continuation of Travel GlassesI received a free review copy from the author in exchange for my honest review If you've read my review of book 1 you probably know I didn't really like Callai'm happy to say i don't have that problem anyCalla really won me over in this book i don't know if it's the transformation of her character itself or that she just seemed brave So the last book ended when Valcas was taking Calla to the TSTA for breaking some rules and she now has to face her judgement She has to pay a huge fine or help Valcas in finding a lost person Lost people are those who get lost while time travelling And it just so happens to be that the person Calla has to look for is her very own father But Calla knows it's too much of a coincidence especially when Valcas seems happy about her going on this mission Valcas' true intentions are revealed and we find out exactly why he did those things in book 1 I have to admit he is a kind of devious geniusThe mystery of the white light that's been targeting Calla is finally revealed It's called an uproar and it feeds off the energy of some 'talented' travellers Calla Valcas and her two new companions Ivory and Ray journey together to find her father with the Uproar hot on their heels We unravel and of Valcas' past which seemed to be OVERFLOWING with secretsI get that the first book focused on the world building but this one was just pure thrilling adventure There was still intriguing stuff we learned but i just loved the journey they had to go through and everything just came together perfectly And get this there's a waterfall of fire they have to cross to get to the cave behind it A FIRE WATERFALL And then the author went on to put the layers in the waterfall so the first is fire ergo you get burnt the second is a soothing balm and the third is water These layers are used to make sure you get to the cave without looking like a barbecued sausage But how do they get out if there is no soothing balm and water layer in front of the fire? See to go out they have to go in reverse water first balm and then fire but how are they NOT gonna ended up like a barbecued sausage? I just LOVED that idea it really amazed meThe epilogue really left me breathless I really can't figure Valcas out what else could he possibly be hiding? But hiss will probably be his biggest secret to dateand we have to wait till book 3 to find out what it wascurls up in a corner and prays for book 3 to come out fasterThe second book in this thrilling story is full of adventure and romance with a plot that will definitely keep you hooked till the very end Cannot wait till the third book My favorite part is definitely the waterfall though if you hand't guessed from my rambling P Reviewed By Lit Amri for Readers’ FavoriteChess Desalls’ The Call to Search Everywhen series continues with its second installment Insight Kindling Calla Winston faces charges against her for changing the past Her use of the Travel Glasses resulted in the creation of two writings that affected the lives of Edgar the inventor of the Travel Glasses and Valcas their prior owner Now Calla must explain her actions before the Time and Space Travel Agency Unfortunately the hearing does not end well The agency finds her guilty and forces her to choose between two harsh penaltiesInsight Kindling introduces new characters as Calla teams up with a group of talented travelers to search for her father Book Two answered most of the uestions that readers might have from Book One but new uestions arise adding intrigue to the story As I had already familiarized myself with the world building the plot direction is easier to follow and gives exciting twists There’s not much chasing this time but searching as the plot takes a slightly different turn One of the highlights of this book is when Calla discovers her own special travel talent which may or may not be enough to protect herself while completing her missionDesalls maintains the excellent imaginative traits of the story Calla still makes uestionable decisions at times but she is mature and focuses on important resolutions All in all fans of the series would be pleased to know that Book Two does not disappoint This is another enjoyable read from Desalls After reading Travel Glasses I could hardly wait for the next in the series to come out It was worth the wait Insight Kindling picks up right where Travel Glasses endsThis one follows Calla as she teams up with other travelers to search for her fatherThe story is brilliantly written and the new characters are introduced seamlessly In some ways the travelers' journeys and exotic locations brought me back to some of my favorite childhood fantasy films such as Labyrinth and The Princess Bride But what drew me in to this tale was Calla's emotional entanglements both romantic and otherwise The character is complex but real and easy to empathize with The I read the I'd recommend this series to fans of Doctor Who Much like the television series the ability to traverse both space and time is integral to the tale but in an ever present background sort of way Once again I can't wait for the next adventure Calla faces the Time and Space Travel Agency to learn her punishment for altering the past She is surprised by the TSTA's decision Accompanied by a travel team she must find her father Doing so will take her on a journey she never expected Will she find herself while looking for her father? Or will Calla end up just as lost as Plaka? Couldn't put it downI'm absolutely hooked and I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book I stayed up way too late reading this one and can't wait to dive headlong into book 3 It's very neat to see the traveling world in this book We get lots of details of different things with traveling It did NOT feel like an info dump either Bonus It is the story and it all comes out to help us understand the way of time and space travels So much to the way of doing things and rules along with people having special abilities to do uniue things in traveling We also find out at the very beginning what is after Calla I'm so glad this book jumped in with details and answers Thank you ChessWith all the great things we learn of the world we get to see Calla fall in love Calla doesn't realize it until she's gone and fallen But she does This is Calla and Valcas's story of falling in love all over again while they are looking for her father and stuck in the Fire FallsNow I need the next book due out later 2015 to see where and when the characters are and how they are copingFULL REVIEWThis audiobook was provided by the author narrator or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com at my reuestThrough Calla's travels of time and space she's broken TSTA rules and now must stand trial for the daily reminders that were created by her and in her name As long as she stays out of jail Valcas knows of a volunteer mission she can join Valcas had bigger plans in mind since the first time he meet Calla He wants to find his best friend and Calla's dad To do that he needs her help She has a close bond to her father by blood All she'd been through was a test to see if she could travel Calla's going to be spending a lot of time with Valcas and this is not the same Valcas she grew fond of Or is he still there?I slipped right into the story with Jill voicing the characters It felt she reads the story with emotion in Calla from the first word She speaks with personality for all the characters along with voice differences such as scratchy or deeper I really enjoyed the differentiation between them all making it easy to tell who was talking She even carried through with similar voices from the first book voiced by a different narrator Well done I think I enjoy Jill's narration much than the narrator of the first bookWe've picked up a few new characters here We meet Calla's mom and she doesn't want Calla and Valcas going on this mission alone She works a few things around and gets two others that are in court the same day and set to go on missions to find Lost people We add Ivory and Ray to our team I really enjoy their abilities and the way they interact with Calla There is another but you can meet that person when you get there ;It's very neat to see the traveling world in this book We get lots of details of different things with traveling It did NOT feel like an info dump either Bonus It is the story and it all comes out to help us understand the way of time and space travels So much to the way of doing things and rules along with people having special abilities to do uniue things in traveling We also find out at the very beginning what is after Calla I'm so glad this book jumped in with details and answers Thank you ChessWith all the great things we learn of the world we get to see Calla fall in love Calla doesn't realize it until she's gone and fallen But she does This is Calla and Valcas's story of falling in love all over again while they are looking for her father and stuck in the Fire FallsThis story is a YA Paranormal read and is a clean story for young readers to enjoy There is no swearing and barely a kiss is present I would suggest this story for many young readers The story is a simple one a mission to find Plaka while Calla and Valcas seem to be skating around each other while feelings grow It held my attention as it feels character based here and the characters feel developed in the story and voiceI went from not trusting Valcas to liking him in the first book This book I fell in love with Valcas with Calla And now I'm very upset with him But that's the way things go in books lol This means the author wrote it right I should have seen it coming though However I fell for the trap and was irritated with the character in the endNow I need the next book due out later 2015 to see where and when the characters are and how they are coping
