#2: Noble Imposter
Have you read Precisely Terminated? Read this!
I really enjoyed Noble Imposter, Ms. DavisÃ¢ÂÂs second book in the Cantral Chronicles. Because I read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book, I hope my review will still be accurate. This book was not as dark as Precisely Terminated, but it still had its scenes of pain and terror. I enjoyed the change of atmosphere, as Monica poses as a Noble instead of a wall slave. This opens up new places and new people. I also appreciated how this book had more stable characters, such as Aric, Tresa, and even Aaron. This book also provided more answers to some unclear points in PT. It introduced readers to the Council of Eight, and it gave a better view of the Noble world. The intensity of this book gripped me, and near the ending I was nervous as to how it would all turn out.
If I must point out some critiques, I have to say that not a lot happened in NI. Perhaps it felt like this because the story had one plot that followed solely Monica. Or perhaps it felt like this because Monica was confined to the same places--always returning to her room or going to the library. (Of course, with the story structure, these places are obviously necessary for her to have to return to.) Also, whereas I was impressed with the new characters, I would have enjoyed seeing them with more development so that I could get a better understanding of their personality and how they operated.
I consider myself a fan of Ms. DavisÃ¢ÂÂs books. As a young aspiring author myself, it is comforting to read another young authorÃ¢ÂÂs works. During the time that I was reading her book, I was suffering from a bad dose of writerÃ¢ÂÂs block, but her book helped me break out of it. If you read Precisely Terminated, be sure to pick up a copy of Noble Imposter. And then, of course, read the third book when it comes out.

A Great Book
The book came almost as near to perfect as books can. It was interesting; I read it in one afternoon. The characters were realistic: I could imagine myself saying that, or doing that, wincing at that, laughing at that. I loved how the characters could do what they had to do, overcoming their fears. I thought it was awesome how Amanda L. Davis put the characters through such a variety of things, but nothing unbelievable. I now have an official favorite character in it, but I can't tell you who it is. I can't wait for the third book to come out, and I will certainly be reading it eagerly.
As a closing statement, I say that this is an amazing book. If you're looking for a good book to read, this one is an excellent choice.

The best book by far
Noble Imposter is by far one of the best books i have ever read after that would be Precisely Terminated. As soon as i got Noble Imposter I could not put it down i read it in 12 hours nonstop because it was so amazing. It leaves you wondering what will happen next with every chapter, the end of the book will leave you begging for more. I know i cant wait for the next book.
