Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor. 

Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.

He doesn’t know that Zo is very much alive and in another part of the region assisting Nameless refugees over a mountain swarming with wild men known as “Clanless.” 

As each struggle to make sense of what their lives have become, they fight and claw to reach the Allied Camp, their last hope in bringing peace to the region.

I received this book for free from the publisher/author via Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Clanless is such a strong sequel! It starts out right where Nameless left off, and it does not disappoint.

The character development is really impressive in this book. Zo and Gryphon seem much more sure of themselves. They actually spend most of the book apart, and I think that contributes to their personal growths. 

The world building in Clanless is expanded on much more then in Nameless. I was glad to finally get more backstory about this fantastic world. 

The plot was just as compelling as Nameless. I loved the plot twists, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The author is so gifted in her writing. The words flow beautifully, and the dialogues are completely believable. 

Overall, this is truly a fantastic series! Clanless has action, romance, suspense, and a lovely array of secondary characters. I can't wait for the next book in this series! I highly recommend this entire series.

Four clans have been at war for centuries: the Kodiak, the Raven, the Wolf and the Ram. Through brutal war tactics, the Ram have dominated the region, inflicting death and destruction on their neighbors.
Seventeen-year-old Zo is a Wolf and a Healer who volunteers to infiltrate the Ram as a spy on behalf of the allied clans. She offers herself as a Ram slave, joining the people who are called the “nameless.” Hers is a suicide mission – Zo’s despair after losing her parents in a Ram raid has left her seeking both revenge and an end to her own misery. But after her younger sister follows her into Rams Gate, Zo must find a way to survive her dangerous mission and keep her sister safe.
What she doesn’t expect to find is the friendship of a young Ram whose life she saves, the confusing feelings she develops for a Ram soldier, and an underground nameless insurrection. Zo learns that revenge, loyalty and love are more complicated than she ever imagined in the first installment of this two-book series.

This is such an amazing book! There was a lot of hype about this book from the book blogging community, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I dug into this one. For once, the hype was well deserved. 

The plot is very original and I really appreciated that. I love reading plots with fresh ideas, and Nameless did not disappoint in that respect. There was plenty of action, and the pacing of the story makes you keep turning the pages. 

While I thought that the world created was wonderful, I felt like more details could have been added. There didn't seem to be enough of a backstory. The writing itself was strong, and the dialogue was convincing.

The characters were very compelling and well developed. Zo is a strong, very fierce heroine. I enjoyed her character very much. The other characters were equally interesting.

The romance was great. I loved how it was slow building, and not shoved in your face all at once. The romance didn't consume the story, or outshine it either. 


Overall, this was a very intriguing story. The plot is solid and the characters are very convincing. I recommend this book to all fantasy and dystopian fans!

With her degree in History and Secondary Education, Jennifer had every intention of teaching teens to love George Washington and appreciate the finer points of ancient battle stratagem. (Seriously, she’s obsessed with ancient warfare.) However, life had different plans in store when the writing began. As a proud member of Writers Cubed, and a co-founder of the Teen Author Boot Camp, she feels blessed to be able to fulfill both her ambition to work with teens as well as write Young Adult fiction.
Jennifer has three children who are experts at naming her characters, one loving, supportive husband, a dog with little-man syndrome, and three chickens (of whom she is secretly afraid).
