#Bookreview – Dead of Winter: Journey 2, Penllyn by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene and cover reveal

Journey 2, Penllyn is the second episode in the Dead of Winter serial. You can read my review of review of Journey 1 Forlorn Peak here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1A6T1JDOEV3H3.

Now, on to my review of Journey 2, Penllyn!

What Amazon says

Journey 2, Penllyn picks up where the first installment, Dead of Winter: Journey 1, Forlorn Peak stopped. The supernatural warning, “Winter is coming!” continues to haunt Emlyn. Her father has heard her utter those words, and he is displeased to say the least. In fact, her family situation in general is becoming more perilous.

My review

Journey 2 of this incredible fantasy is a satisfying 60 pages long and moves the story along at a terrific pace. Emlyn’s visions make an even bigger intrusion into her life and her unhappy home environment becomes even worse due her inability to control her fears while sleeping. She gains some comfort through the discovery of an unexpected and hidden item that previously belonged to her mother and we learn more about her mother’s nature and passions as Emlyn thinks about her and examines her physical memories of her life when it included her mother.

More details are revealed about the restrictive religion that has taken hold in Emlyn’s home town and surrounds and the reader feel Afon, Emlyn’s father’s, anxiety that her strange behaviour could bring tragedy down upon his family and business. He decides to try and take preventive action which leaves the reader conflicted about his real motives and feelings towards his daughter.

This journey is equally beautifully written as Journey one and I enjoyed some of the delightful descriptions.
“The milk zinged against the side of the bucket, making a happy sound” and “She couldn’t recall experiencing heavy clammy air in cool weather. The air was strange, unlike ordinary dampness. It felt … greasy.” are two examples of this author’s fabulous writing.

Who is Queen Ailbine and why did she bother with Emlyn? Who is the woman who has the ability to infiltrate Emlyn’s dreams? This journey ends with a cliffhanger and leaves these questions to be answered in the next installment.

  1. Robbie, thank you so very much not just for this fabulous review, but for posting about Journey 3 as well. I’m having a messed-up week, so you have no idea how helpful that was. I’ll be back later today to participate in the conversation more. Hugs on the wing!

      1. Thank you kindly, Robbie. After that couple of extremely windy days, the weather is normal again. It’s the general chaos of life today. I should write soap operas… LOL.
        I’m so happy you are going to read Journey 3! It’s the most exciting one so far. Stay safe and well.
