Mei Li could’ve done with knowing that beforehand, and fully blames Shunlei for not forewarning her. Instead of going back a few years to rescue the missing tomes, Mei Li finds herself thousands of years in the past, with the original events she needs to learn about still ten years into the future. She is stuck in a hurry-up-and-wait pattern she doesn’t appreciate. It doesn’t help that this world is full of its own problems, and Mei Li has more than enough of those already. Now she must face shape shifting demons, volatile water deities, and a murderous sword on a rampage all while trying to figure out WHY the spell sent her here in the first place. There are a few side benefits. Mei Li gets to meet younger Shunlei—or Shunlei the Red. Seeing him as a young dragon is fun. It’s also fascinating being with the first group of magical troubleshooters, the original founders before the Tomes system ever existed. And when the past starts to intertwine with the future in ways she could never have predicted, Mei Li prays she’s able to navigate it without ruining the future. If she does, she fully plans on blaming Shunlei for that as well.

    Totally worth staying up until 4 am 😅 Didn't end where I thought it might but not really a cliffhanger. Totally worth staying up until 4 am 😅 Didn't end where I thought it might but not really a cliffhanger.

    Another great story from a beloved author. Worth reading, but make sure to get book one first. I really enjoyed the answers to most of the questions from before her time traveling and really love younger Shunlei. Dragons are plain awesome. Recommended.

    Yes, wow, loved this book so much! It was a fantastic sequel, I loved spending more time with these characters, though there's a whole bunch of new ones that we only just met in the last chapter of Tomes Apprentice!

    In my happy place, reading a new Raconteur story. Bottom line, highly recommend this book. Start reading now and don't worry if you haven't read book one yet. Enjoyed this tremendously. Read it through first then went back to the first book and started from the beginning. Even better then, reading the two books back to back and catching the hints in each. The two stories don't have to be read in order to be enjoyed. The cast of each is unique with Mei and Shunlei the only constants. Though the d In my happy place, reading a new Raconteur story.

The two stories don't have to be read in order to be enjoyed. The cast of each is unique with Mei and Shunlei the only constants. Though the dynamic between Mei and Shunlei is different in each, friends still but older and younger in one and similar in age in the other. It will be very interesting to see where and when book 3 takes the story. Plus how many books will be needed to tell the whole tale. I'm thinking a minimum of four to properly take care problems in each time and resolve dangling threads. Looking forward to finding out. With Tomes #2, Raconteur continues to deliver a series that I love and enjoy. An auto buy author for me. One last time, it's fine to jump into the series here and then go back and read book one. cross posted goodreads, amazon, bookbub.

    Not much I can say about this book without spoiling the first, since it literally picks up with the last chapter, repeated as the first chapter of this book. Why I started this book: Tomes Apprentice ended so abruptly, that I got whiplash. Why I finished it: Interesting set up for a series, but I'm wondering how long this will last. (view spoiler)[How long with Mei be in the past time line? One more book? Two?

    Fun with Dragons and Magic The plot is fun. The characters are interesting. If only there was an editor to clean up the grammar issues! I am not a huge fan of self published books, for that reason, but the story line of these books is imaginative and well done. The culture of the world is a bit muddy, with ancient Asian influence suddenly jarringly juxtaposed with modern American. The magic system is interesting and more consistent than the culture. Still, a very entertaining read.

    Great sequel I love almost all of her books. She is a great author. This series is so fun. My only problem is that it is not being written fast enough. For people like me that are skeptical of 5 star reviews, I don't know the author and am in no way connected to her. I'm an avid reader and my son turned me on to her writing through Imagineer. If you like this book then pretty much all of her writing will resonate with you and you will be happy to have found a good author. Great sequel I love almost all of her books. She is a great author.

    A mediocre dragon story I made it through the second book in the series because the author has a great idea for a story. But I was tired of reading the same concept s over and over. Okay I got it why the heroine finds herself in this situation. It seemed like she was padding her word count . I stuck with the story because I like to read about dragons and I like the human dragon interaction story the author had but a weak heroine was no fun.

    I love this story I like the romance between Mei and Shunlai. Although I do think it is funny how long it takes Mei to realize what's going on. The magic and action scenes are great too. My only complaint is that this book seemed too short! It does end in a good place, but I want more story! I love this story I like the romance between Mei and Shunlai.

    Wonderful book This is a truly lovely continuation of the first book in series. Mei Li is a great,well rounded character and her relationships with Shunlei and the rest of the team developing are fun to observe. Add some magical trouble for them to fight and it makes for a great magical adventure story. I can't wait to see what happens to them so next.

    Extraordinary So much fun experiencing the world with Mei & Shunlei. I love the magic, the very special dragon, the scholarship, battle buddies & the adventures. It's clean but not childish. The characters are diverse but not so monolithic - people who are as complex as anyone is - but doing heroic deeds in the midst of living their lives.

    Simply wonderful Had just consumed book one and had to stop the world from turning, so I could read book two. I don't know how Honor can consistently keep writing excellent books. Have been impatiently waiting for the next Imagineer and now Tome three will have to be eagerly waited on. Good thing about COVID gives one enough time to read without interruptions.

    Enjoyed the story The author has written another fine story, which is to be expected. Since it’s been awhile since Tomes Apprentice came out, it took me a bit to get back into the story. I did notice a few word errors, but all in all this was a very enjoyable read.

    An amazing sequel I loved this book so much. The cliffhanger from the first book resolves nicely and the interesting timekine.

    Awesomeness! I LOVED it! Time travel, dragons, magic and more dragons. Did I mention dragons? Great job on the second book in this series. Now let’s see if we can get the little people in the author’s head to concentrate on Imagineers.🙃

    Some things are predictable A trip will never be as short as you think. Love is often oblivious. Things happen for a reason. The only bad thing about this book is I have to wait for the next one. Looking forward to seeing old friends again in the next book.

    This book was the perfect sequel to the first. It confirmed some of my theories and answered questions nearly flawlessly. This series is definitely my favorite and this book only added to my love of it given to me by the first.

    Really good But way way way too short. Lets hope for a bigger book on T3 This is the second in the serie for those unfamiliar it would be preferrable to read the first before it

    A-MA-ZING Fantastic sequel! Adventures and romance were nicely paced, and it certainly helped that Shunley didn't let the grass grow under his feet. Looking forward to the next book.

    Excellent I love the world Honor Raconteur has created. I wish the book was longer so I could keep reading about Mei and Shunlei.

    Lovely Mei Li travels to the past only to meet her future. Shunlei is a younger dragon and their courtship is very sweet. The writing continues to be thoroughly engaging.

    Raconteur is a magical writer! Her imagination is off-the-charts gifted. Her worldbuilding - beyond compare. This series is not to be missed. Raconteur is a master of her craft.
