Kindle Spotlight -- Hunted (The Flash Gold Chronicles #2)

In another first for my blog, I'm reviewing a sequel: Lindsay Buroker's Hunted. It is the second book in her Flash Gold Chronicles series.

Since we last saw Kali McAlister, she has moved to another town in the Yukon and gone into the bounty hunting business with mysterious tough guy Cedar. She dreams of making enough money to build her own airship and finally leaving the frigid region. Cedar has his own goal: Taking down the nefarious Cudgel. Doing that will grant him satisfaction and money to fulfill Kali's wish. In order to do this, though, they have to cozy up with Kali's slimy ex, Sebastian. Sebastian has his own agenda, but he may not be the biggest threat to Kali. A shadowy woman is stalking them, but I won't spoil that.

My biggest problem with the first book in the series, Flash Gold, was that I felt the big sled race didn't live up to its potential (see the full review elsewhere on this blog). Hunted has no such problem. It's a fast-paced adventure which builds upon Flash Gold in meaningful ways. We get to see Kali and Cedar's relationship grow further, more of Kali's secret heritage is revealed, more newfangled steam-powered contraptions are introduced, and we learn Cedar's real name! This is truly how a sequel should be. There are a few typos, but nothing that even begins to bring down the story. Lindsay Buroker is a talented writer, and you should definitely start reading this series.
