Born of Treasure by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Clark and Amethyst may have married in secret, but they really need to find a way to tell her family. As the newlyweds look for Clark’s father’s inventions, Captain Greenwood has other plans. The Army has gone to the Treasure Ranch for an extended visit and they won’t leave until they have captured Clark so that they can control his power over the dead. The Treasure family is now on the run and they must determine who can be trusted in this wild, wild world. Will Clark sacrifice his own freedom to ensure the Treasures are safe? What changes will Amethyst undertake to outwit Captain Greenwood and Senator Horan?
Born of Treasure is the second book in the Treasure Chronicles. Some of the confusion about Clark’s power over the dead was clarified and expanded in this continuation of the story. There isn’t as much action and adventure in this portion of the tale even though the characters were constantly on the move. The larger drama that was initiated in the first book has been wrapped up, yet Mierek has left many avenues open for additional volumes in the Treasure Chronicles. Born of Treasure was a satisfying read, but could have been more enjoyable with additional adventure and romance like the first book.
