I received an ARC of this book for free from BookSparks for promotional purposes.
I give this book 4.5 stars which rounds up to 5.
I absolutely loved the first book in the trilogy but um okay wow this book was even more insane. It was a roller coaster of emotions. This book picks up right where the last book left off and from then on just continues all the craziness.
At first I was a little intimidated to read this because I saw the massive character list in the beginning and was a bit overwhelmed (there’s a ton of new characters compared to the first book). But it ended up being so easy to follow.
As for the new characters, they just added to the drama of the whole story and I loved it. I particularly liked the dynamics and politics between the characters.
Like the first book, the ending was just wild. What a cliffhanger. The author really outdid herself with that one.
I didn’t give this book a full 5 stars because it is on the slow side. Since this is the second book in the trilogy, I was expecting a little more excitement than what I got. Nevertheless, the book was still a page turner.
Overall, if you loved the first book, then you’ll love this one! Now the wait for the next book begins!
