    One of the rare sequels that’s just as good as the first, and perhaps even a little better!

    In the final few chapters of

    Catherine, Ambrose, Tash, March and Edyon managed to come together to help one another. But now, war, demons and deceit threaten to tear them apart as they flee the Brigantine army. Split up once again, Tash traverses the dangerous tunnels of the demon world while Catherine and Ambrose attempt to prove their loyalty to the Pitorian elite and Edyon and March find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

    was one of my most anticipated reads of this year, and it didn’t disappoint. Green weaves a richly intricate tapestry of fantastical worlds, endearing characters and complex political machinations reminiscent of the glory days of

    but also utterly unique.

    With five protagonists who are more often separate than together, there’s a lot of plot threads to keep track of, but Green does an excellent job of making you care about each of the main characters despite the fact that none of them are perfect. Catherine especially shines in this instalment; it’s been wonderful to see her progression from the downtrodden princess who started out with nothing to the fierce leader she’s become. She reminds me of both Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen - anyone who loves either character is sure to fall in love with her arc in The Demon World (let’s just hope that unlike many

    characters she gets the ending she deserves).

    Things are left on a massive cliffhanger at the end of

    , with the relationships and lives of some of my favourite characters hanging in the balance - I’m desperate to know when I’ll be able to get my hands on book three!

    Many thanks to Penguin for providing a copy of

    I can't fucking wait for the next book!!

    Sometimes the second book in a trilogy suffers from second book syndrome and ends up falling a little flat compared to the first but that definitely isn't the case with

    . She was able to immediately draw me back into the story (no mean feat when I've read well over 200 books in between this and the last one!) and within no time at all I was totally caught up in the story. I'll admit I missed Tzsayn's character as he was absent for most of the story but I particularly loved seeing the journey Tash has been on since the beginning of the first book. She's changed so much since we first met her and is without a doubt one of the bravest characters in the series.

    Catherine makes some questionable choices along the way but at the same time she proves her intelligence several times over as she overcomes obstacles thrown in her way by people who blame her for Tzsayn's capture. I love the complicated relationship she has with her devoted guard Ambrose but I have a horrible feeling he's going to end up with his heart broken because she's so ambitious.

    I don't really want to get into any detail about what happens in this story so I'll just tell you there is plenty of action, we uncover some huge secrets that the Brigantines have been keeping, there are plenty of betrayals along the way, some more surprising than others, and the ending left me with my mouth hanging open in shock. I'm definitely going to be waiting on tenterhooks for the final book in the series to publish!

    Our group are quickly under attack and end up separated. Boundaries and relationships are tested as they attempt to work out the best way forward.

    Catherine finds her way to what should be safe territory, and ends up having to fight against people who are determined to have their own way even if it’s not for the good of the country. Edyon ends up in an awkward situation and March does his best to help, though the truth will out and betrayal is hard to justify. The most interesting part of the story for me came with Tash and her journey into the demon world. She takes a huge risk, which looks as if it’s gone horribly wrong, but there are suggestions that we might not have been given the full story at this point.

    I must thank NetGalley for allowing me to read this prior to publication.

    I’m conflicted! I love so many characters (minus one main character) and I think just because of that and their actions throughout I just found so off putting...

    Hopefully when I’m home tomorrow I can try and add to this, I still absolutely love it, and Tash’s Chapters really stole the show for me!

    This book I definitely didn't find as good as #1. It started off great, with a POV of a character I love, but it turns out we only get that POV once. It was jarring to me. I didn't like the whole jealousy plot, it always irks me. And the way everyone accepts Catherine, and those who don't she wins over. I definitely did grow on the parts in the demon world, but even that started to bore me. I wasn't connected with any of these characters, it just had a different feel to #1. I will still read #3,

    IT CAN'T END LIKE THAT

    So we all know that the second book in a trilogy can be a bit of a slump, and we've all read books that just don't live up to the first book. I was not expecting this book to be like that :(

    The ending of the first book made me instantly want to pick up this one. The Smoke Thieves was a bit slow getting off the mark, building up the story and the characters and at the end of that, I was like yessss, now shit is about to go down. Imagine my surprise that almost nothing happen

    . But not much else good happens :(

    I may have been disappointed by this book, but I'm obviously still very excited to read the next book. I NEED ANSWERS!
