Bran Hambric: The Specter Key
The action was ongoing throughout the book and made me wonder what was going to happen next. The story begins where Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse leaves off and jumps in with both feet. Kaleb Nation created tye new I thoroughly enjoyed walking into the creative mind of Kaleb Nation when I flipped open Bran Hambric: Kaleb Nation created interesting new characters that tugged at my heartstrings. While reading, I wanted to kry Gary, smack Thomas and tip Oswald.
Gary has a deep secret Bran has to seek out and discover. Thomas is hard and unfeeling but the conversations with Bran are entertaining.

Oswald, is just a cool character with a kind heart. The conclusion had closure and didn’t leave me hanging but left subtle hints of what we might see in the next book. The Specter Key is a delightful read that is entertaining, exciting and clean for kids.
I know my children will LOVE this book because of the magic, action and humor. I recommend it to all families who enjoy reading together. Mar 21, Denae Christine rated it really liked it Shelves: The humor is awesome. KN is a funny author and vlogger, and blogger, and speakerand his ideas are new and just fun.
The magic, though, doesn’t seem well thought out. Or, at least, it’s not presented as such. Sometimes the mages use wands.
Sometimes they have to say words to do magic. Good thing is, I can’t point to a part where a mage was in danger and could’ve used magic and didn’t. A lot of authors make that mistake, conveniently “forgetting” that their characters can do magic just to escal The humor is awesome.
A lot of authors make that mistake, conveniently “forgetting” that their characters can do magic just to escalate the tension. KN didn’t, so that’s a plus. The action was also lacking. It was hard to follow. Maybe my imagination can’t keep up with KN’s.
Maybe I was so excited I had to read too hambroc and missed things most likely. The characters were good. Bran’s personality shows up a bit more in this book, and Sewey is, as always, one of the most unique and outrageously hilarious character I’ve ever met. The dialogue was also measured well, pretty character specific and not forced sounding.

All in all, good job for the second book of a twenty-two-year-old. Though I might’ve been tempted to give it a 3 if I didn’t like his vlogs so much. Jan 02, Julie rated it liked it Recommends it for: Here we are at the second Bran Hambric novel. As with the first, I felt that Kaleb Nation had particular strengths and weaknesses.
The world-building is nicely done. The town of Dunce, with all its rules and nutty holidays, is fun to read about. The side characters are nicely made as well especially like Sewey Wilomas, who is a jerk but can be talked out of serving eviction notices to poor widowsbut Things happened in this book that should have greatly upset me or at least had me worried, and they didn’t.
Worry me, I mean.
The Specter Key
Or make me even remotely concerned. That said, I’d still read book 3 when it comes out. It’s enough to keep me going, and I’d like to keep supporting a young writer who is doing a pretty bang-up job of it, overall. Mar 23, Alex C. This book seems to continue right after the last one ended, so if you haven’t read the first one in a while I recommend reading up.
Having not read the first book in years I was very lost at first with no mercy on who characters were and what events had happened. Although, luckily it all bram flooding back after a while. Kaleb Nation does a great job building off the world he’s created, and the characters are as loveable as before. The strong point of this book isn’t the system of magic, I feel This book seems to continue right after the last one ended, so if you haven’t read the first one in a while I recommend reading up.
The strong point of this book isn’t the system of magic, I feel free to say this as there are times where they pick up a book with a two-word spell to open any lock, that’s just as easy as saying two wordsso much as the idea that there is magic and how it should be used and whether people can keh it.
Magic is the main problem in Bran’s life, one can argue zpecter if he never learned of magic that he would be better off, but then we wouldn’t have a story. Nation, seemed to actually have this sequel in mind as in this book they reference seeds in the first book that seemed out of place then, but makes sense now. I felt a little weird when they introduced Gary, and how much of a role he played in the grand story of it all but yet was never mentioned or hinted at in the first book, maybe the one thing Nation didn’t think ahead onalthough the time with him plays as an expositional time where we finally get to understand spectee Bran’s life came to be.
All in all, it was a decent read and a ,ey book for introductory fantasy readers as it thd hit too hard on the fantasy part.
