This is an Advanced Readers Copy. That means that this is not the final version of the book. Therefore, facts and quotes are subject to change in the published book.

This is the second book in the series. Please click here for the first book.

After everything that happened in the first, we now follow Rin and the Cike as they work toward their goal of killing the empress. But nothing will go as planned when old classmates begin to show up and Rin is dragged back into another war. This time, what side is she really on?

Oh No’s

Rin is a selfish little prick she literally abandoned the Cike to the point where they’re not even mention anymore but there literally in the same army as her like she literally just gives up on her friends and just move on without them because now she feels powerless but she replaces them for two other new people and I think that’s disgusting

Word and caution thrown to the wind this book is just as long if not longer than the first book prepare. This book did not need to be so long nor was there a real reason to continue the series into a trilogy.


If you have any interest in politics in the creation of politics within the world this is where you need to be although I really wish there was a map that would make this a lot more understandable perhaps there is a map but I do have the e-book version so I do not physically see a map but the politics that occur within this novel is severely thought out and it’s a literally a war and it’s crazy

The world building in this book is phenomenal. We see a lot of the previous characters come back and we are able to follow everyone and how they changed from the first book. Character development is definitely A+.


Honestly even though I was bored to death I really loved the way that the characters were written. How they communicated with each other really kept the story alive for me. If you enjoyed the first I definitely recommending moving on to book two.

My similar recommendation for this novel would be Shadowscale (Book #2 of Seraphina) by-www.

  1. I don’t tend to look forward reading series because you have to invest a lot of time, but I think is one that has always intrigued me. I love the idea of politics playing a huge role, can’t wait to read this series!
