Series: Dominions #2
Age: Young Adult
Thank you to Entangled Teen and NetGalley for an e-ARC of this book!
I thought this was a fantastic follow up to The Liar’s Crown. Meren is a character who has her flaws, but is always trying to do the right thing. We are back with everyone after Meren’s capture.
This one is all about secrets being unraveled, and learning the true history behind the world. I was fascinated with it from the beginning. This one has a tiny bit of political intrigue, but this is a fast paced, action packed fantasy book with a side of romance. (Okay, it’s probably a bit more than a side…)
There are some twists and turns in this book that I hadn’t expected. Many of the characters (unless they died in the previous one) are back in this book. While the POV is Meren’s, we do have a full ensemble cast, and each play an important role in the book. I liked that Pella had a more prominent role in this book than in the previous one.
I definitely liked the romance in this book, but it was far more angsty than the previous book. This was an expertly woven romance, and is very slow burn. I think there was a lot to take in between Meren and Reven, and how they interacted. Meren feels so intensely about everyone and everything, and she hates hurting people. She is such a loving person, and I love that about her character.
I don’t want to say too much more about the overall plot of this book as so much of it is spoilers, but suffice to say we have yet another cliffhanger at the end!
