Children of Virtue and Vengeance
Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2019
Ok, so I was one of the few unpopular opinions on the first book of this series, I liked it but didn't love it. I like the fast pace and the short alternating chapters. The magical world is so unique and the political struggle was very interesting but I just couldn't connect to the characters. I didn't really like their immature, emotional actions and didn't understand the selfish motivations. But, it didn't stop me from having book two pre-ordered and diving right in the day it arrived.
For the first half of this book, I felt the same, to the point I almost gave up. But around halfway, I started to understand Zelie and Amari more. I was hovering around a 3 star review, better than last time's two star. By the last third, I was fully immersed and loving the progression as much as many other series I've loved. The last few chapters are perfect and have me sitting at a 4 star review. I'm even more anxious for the next book now.
