Loved the first series in this world but Ethan is a whiny dick. Enjoyed the story despite him…Kagawa’s writing is immersive, as is the existing world. 3 stars.

Spot-on fight scenes combined with a strong heroine add up to a great second installment in an already rock-solid series. Do wish story was a bit longer, more detailed. 4 stars.

Really wanted the insides to be a beautiful as the outside but…disappointed. Cheesy magic, crater-sized plot holes, and an incredibly disappointing ending. 1 star.
YA SciFi, hardcover, 368 pages; published July 14, 2015 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; source: publisher
An action-packed story filled with great characters — yeah, I can get behind that. It’d been a long while since I read the first story, so that was a challenge but well worth the effort. 4 stars.
YA SciFi, hardcover, 400 pages; published May 26, 2015 by Balzer + Bray; source: publisher
Nearly DNFed this. Did not like the characters or the plot. They just didn’t DO anything. Also didn’t like the “must procreate” thing for YA. Squicky. 2 stars.
