The battle continues in Invasion of the Ortaks: The Defeat. As the Ortaks continue invading, kingdoms unite in a fight against them. Kings, queens, elves, and knights join sides against a common threat. But will they survive? With non-stop action that will keep you at the edge of your seat, Invasion of the Ortaks: The Defeat will definitely keep you entertained.


The plot was really fast-paced, which I enjoyed. It wasn’t boring, and the author didn’t spend too long on descriptions. I always appreciate when an author can get a point across without taking thirty pages to explain it. However, the first book kept my interest better than this one, but that might be because I liked the characters more in the first story.

I was very confused at the beginning of this book, as I thought it would be a continuation of the first book with the same characters. Instead, the author introduced various new characters and rarely gave any time to the characters I grew to know in the first book. I was looking forward to learning more about the characters in the previous book and was disappointed when instead there were a ton of new characters.

I feel like the author had the same issues in the second book as in the first book – too many characters without really giving them depth. I really wish that the author had focused on a few characters from the first book instead of adding a bunch of new ones.

Overall, this book was an okay successor to the first – it just needs a bit of work.
