Note: This review may contain spoilers for the previous book, The Tiger Catcher.
So in The Tiger Catcher, we met Julian Cruz, who is quite the interesting hero. An intellectual boxer and seemingly a desperate romantic. He's not my typical favored hero, but I am so wrapped up in his story that I can't help but love Julian. We follow Julian as he meets and falls in love with Josephine (a/k/a Mia), who was not a very likable heroine. Then we follow Julian through a terrible grief after losing Mia, before he meets a shaman who assists him with finding her earlier incarnations to try to save her soul before its too late.
Now in A Beggar's Kingdom, we see Julian try again and again to find and save his true love before its too late. Will he be successful with another version of Mia - Mary, Miri, Mirabelle, Mary-Margaret? What's the lucky year -1603, 1666, 1775, 1854, 1911? Or will Julian kill himself in the effort to save to save another... and what will his journeys through time and space cost him? I don't think I've ever read a hero with more perseverance and dedication, and Julian's continued bravery astounded me. Needless to say, my heart broke so many times during this story... it was like a roller coaster of anxiety. I definitely had a hard time keeping a dry eye while I was reading this on my flights this week.
But while Julian's life seems stuck in the past (literally), things continue to happen in the present time with those secondary characters who were tied to Julian. I was surprised by many things, particularly how the lives of Riley, Ashton and Zakiyyah were unfolding. Talk about drama and jaw-dropping events! My feelings for Ashton rose and fell and rose again - but you can't deny his unflagging loyalty to Julian. Devi was not quite as present, but was still interspersed in the story. But we got the addition of Mia's mother, Ava, and I think she will be an interesting presence going forward.
Like I said above, this is not a happy story. But it is captivating. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the publisher.
Truly epic!! A series that travels through time walks a very fine line, but Paullina Simons has outdone herself in the second book in the 'End of Forever' saga. Julian and Josephine are soul mates thought all eternity, and Julian literally risks his life over and over again to find his one true love in her many incarnations. This series is completely spellbinding! The amount of detail in this book is absolutely amazing. 'A Beggars Kingdom' even manages to infuse humor into some very bleak situations. The narrator of the audiobook once again did a brilliant job of bringing the very diverse cast of characters to life.
That wasn't a shadow life. That was real. Or is this real?
Will Julian and Josephine ever truly find each other again? Or are they doomed to be apart forever?
I don't want to give away any spoilers because this is one of THE most imaginative stories I have ever encountered. Jules continues to search through time for his lost love, and the characters he meets are simply unforgettable. Just when I thought things looked hopeless, the author worked her magic and surprised me yet again. A story of true love, hope and bravery, I cannot wait for the final book in the series 'Inexpressible Island' which is releasing later in 2019!
"Don't you want to find love again, Jules?
"I've found it. It's right here."
