    I won't say anything else about this book cause spoiling things for others is the absolute worse...but you need to get this book AS SOON AS IT HITS THE SHELVES....I want everyone to be in as much misery as I am.

    Sidenote: I am pretty sick and tired of Rielle by the end of this book...I don't know why, she just really pissed me off :)

    Thanks to Sourcebooks for the ARC!

    So, what can I say about this wonderful book? Claire Legrand has a beautiful way with words. Every page is gorgeous. Every chapter meaningful. I loved it.

    It was impossible to read

    slowly. The story picks up from book one seamlessly, and keeps the same high quality characters and tight intense story telling.

    I've mentioned it before, but I prefer books written in third person rather than first person. Recently a lot of the fantasy novels I've read have been in first person so getting such a wonderful book from my favourite POV was just what I needed.

    We not only get the standard Rielle and Eliana chapters from

    , but we also got a handful of chapters from the perspective of the other characters. Most notably Simon and Corien.

    The character development? Perfect. We see Rielle slowly becoming more and more unhinged and Eliana accepting her fate as we delve deeper into this story. Since we technically know how Rielle's story ends, this is more about the journey getting there than finding out what happens at the end. But who knows? There's still one more book so anything can happen!

    And that Simon guy? Yes.

    is out in just a couple days so make sure to pick up your copy!

    Again, I am so sad to be giving another book in this series only 3 stars, but I just had so many issues with it and it was extremely hard for me to get through. I kept losing interest and didn't want to finish. Which is sad because I love the core idea of this trilogy. There's just so much going on that it really disrupts the flow of the book. Also, there will probably be spoilers of the first book.

    Again, I am so sad to be giving another book in this series only 3 stars, but I just had so many issues with it and it was extremely hard for me to get through. I kept losing interest and didn't want to finish. Which is sad because I love the core idea of this trilogy. There's just so much going on that it really disrupts the flow of the book. Also, there will probably be spoilers of the first book.

    In

    we were introduced to Rielle and Eliana- two "Queens" who were somehow connected to each other but separated by time. We come to learn that Eliana is Rielle's daughter who was sent away to save her life. Both women hold immeasurable power and are held to a fate neither want - one will save the world and one will burn it basically.

    So let's start with what I liked:

    -

    The plot is still amazing. And the prologue of Furyborn still sticks with me and I just want to know how Rielle gets to that point. We definitely see her start to change here and it makes me excited to see how everything will play out.

    -

    Legrand does an amazing job of setting up these worlds. Both are clearly defined and that makes it easy to jump into them with the chapter switches.

    -

    The fact that for most of the books you are still asking who is the Blood Queen and who is the Sun Queen speaks volumes for how closely aligned the two are. Yes, it can be pretty obvious who is who but I like how Legrand plays on them both with each girl. Leading me to believe, the story is not so black and white as it could appear.

    -

    I always love seeing how people play on angel lore. And it's no different here.

    -

    I love watching how heroes sink under the promise of power

    Ok, so what didn't I like?

    -

    All three are listed together because they all kind of go together. Parts of this book were just boring. We don't need to hear each characters plan or what they're doing in the background. Surprises are good. I would think as an author, you want your readers to gasp and go WTF how did that happen?? Less is definitely more in certain situations, especially in betrayals. And also, 100 pages probably could have been cut from this and it would have helped the pacing immensely.

    -

    This shocked me. I mean, I wasn't a huge fan of Eliana in the first one so I didn't really expect to like her here. And while I can see how she grew, I still just didn't like her. She's too impulsive and refuses to listen to anyone about anything. This actually makes her weak not strong. Accept the help and learn from people around you! But the not liking Rielle made me sad. I really liked her in the first book and it was her journey that I looked the most forward to but all of that just fell apart here. She was completely different from the person she was in the first book and I'm not talking natural growth, just a whole new character for a new book. And she was just plain stupid. Every choice she made she knew was wrong and would hurt the people she claimed to love and was just like eh, whatever. And while I get her intrigue of Corien, I really don't understand the pull he has over her. Like she just turns to mush when he's around. Ugh

    -

    The lack of explanation here was ridiculous but I'm assuming she's saving that convo for the last book.

    I know people love this series and this is just my view. Even though I was disappointed in it, I'm still excited to see how it all ends. I have my theories and now I wait.

    First of all I am grateful to Sourcebooks Fire for giving me the opportunity to read this much awaited sequel!

    When Kingsbane landed on my Kindle I think I screamed so loud that I awoke my neighbors.

     

    First of all I am grateful to Sourcebooks Fire for giving me the opportunity to read this much awaited sequel!

    When Kingsbane landed on my Kindle I think I screamed so loud that I awoke my neighbors.

    You have fantastic beasts, angels, magic etc. Claire Legrand knows how to write to make you see this fictional world.

     

    There is action, you move nearly all the time, meet new people, have threats to avoid and quests to fulfill be it get ancient artifacts from the Saints or find a cure or ….

     

    We get to read about the

    . Believe me, the humans were not flawless here and they did trick the angels!

     

    As this is a trilogy it ends on a cliffhanger so you’ve been warned.

     

    Of course in book one we know that Rielle was the bad guy. But I rooted for her and really loved her as kickass girl! I wanted her to have excuses.

    Here...

    Power was so tempting. But I had problems with the grasp Corien had on Rielle. Why was she attracted to him like that? She just seemed kind of selfish in her search for power. I would say she became power drunk and accumulated bad decisions.

    She is trying her best but she is also a very conflicted charactersand not easy to like either. She is stubborn and decided to do things her way. That led to mistakes…

     

    The way these scenes happened and how Rielle wanted it made me feel uneasy. I did not like how she seemed to use Audric and ... well you got it for as much as I loved her before I disliked her here.

    and probably not bothered by these scenes.

    I loved Audric and each time Corien happened felt like a deep betrayal. The relationship between Ludvine, Rielle and Audric was also …peculiar and probably not fitting for a YA story again.

     

    Would I recommend this book?

    If you have read and loved Furyborn I would say read it and make your own opinion.

    I guess you can't love all books from an author...

     

    Have you read Furyborn? Did you love it? Do you want to read Kingsbane?

    Thanks for reading
