Hello bookworms! 😍
Thanks so much to Pansing for sending me an ARC of this book! This book is now available at all good bookstores!❤️
Author: Katharine Corr and Elizabeth Corr
Fight or flight . . . or both?
Three months after Aderyn’s coronation the court is celebrating the Solstice, but Aderyn is preoccupied by Lucien’s continuing hostility. The celebrations are interrupted by the arrival of nobles who have escaped from the neighbouring country of Celonia – the flightless have risen up and overthrown their rulers. The world is changing.
As people being to question whether Aderyn and Aron are strong enough to rule, there is an attempted assassination on Aderyn’s life. Siegfried and Tallis have made their move – they have formed an army, declared war and will take the throne, by any means necessary.
Aderyn must fly to unchartered territories and risk the lives of everyone she loves to defeat her enemies, secure her throne and unite her people.
Epic, dangerous and impossible to put down, this finale takes you on a soaring journey through grief, strength and determination to fight for what is right, what you love and what is yours.
My thoughts on this book:
I was elated when I received this book in the mail because A Throne of Swans was one of my favorite reads and I was so excited for the sequel! 😍
I have to admit, I was a bit confused at first because I didn’t reread the first book beforehand but after a few more chapters with some clever storytelling by the authors and my memory reminding me about the first book, I really started to enjoy it!
Plot wise, it didn’t disappoint and I was pleasantly surprised 😍 the events and twists heightened to a whole new different level and my heart is still pounding fast from everything that occured. This book to me was more focused on the inequality in the land between the flightless and the nobles which I found really interesting. I also loved this other issues that the authors brought up like equality, mental health and more ❤️
It was also really awesome to see how the characters grew from the first book despite the time difference being a few months because SO MANY THINGS HAPPENED 👀🤭 they were more complex and more involved in a way so that was something I enjoyed 😍
Other than the plot and characters, my thoughts about this duology is pretty similar to the first book 😂 the worldbuilding and unique storyline are still so magical to me 😍 I personally still found the first book a bit better than this one but I have to say this was the perfect conclusion to the story and it was really well rounded off.
I rated it a 3/5 🌟
Would I recommend this book?
Yes yes yes! Please do yourself a favor and check this duology out! The first book is called A Throne of Swans! 😍
Wishing all of you have amazing day! ✨
Until the next blog post,
– the Joyful Reader❤️
