โ€œThe only way to kill pure evil is with pure loveโ€

๐ŸŒŸ I wasn’t sure if I was going to continue this series or not, but while I was doing my Edelweiss guide post, I wanted to give an example and thus requested this book. I was approved in literally 10 mins! So I decided to read it after all and I am glad I did!

๐ŸŒŸ Now many readers loved book 1 and some didn’t (I though it was like half good, half bad) because it kept being compared to the movie “In Time”. I saw many similarities in book 1 but here is where things start to get interesting, this book was more creative with better world building, better characters and twists. I felt it stands out by its own without depending on that movie or anything.

๐ŸŒŸ This had a more fantasy atmosphere than the Sci-fi-ish genre in book 1. I liked the improvements to the magic system and the involved mythology was better too.

๐ŸŒŸ The characters were good, and the plot was more interesting, I slept a few times while reading book 1 but not this one and I thought this had a perfect ending too!

๐ŸŒŸ I don’t know if the writing improved or if I wasn’t just in the mood while reading book 1 because I think it is pretty much decent in this one. There were a few quotes that made me go “Huh??!” (see an example below). But overall it was good.

Itโ€™s likeโ€”she gestures, searching for the wordโ€”โ€œcutting the sky into pieces. No one knows how that magic might change you.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ Summary and Prescription: I think that this book was better in all elements of the story than book 1 and it felt more original than that one too. If you still want to give the story a chance or if you liked book 1 then I can recommend this! I ended up giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars!

  1. Iโ€™m glad to see that you found this one more satisfying than the first! I was a bit underwhelmed by Everless (3 star read for me), but I might be interested enough to still read this, if itโ€™s better than the first one! Great review! โค๏ธ
