Blurb: I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the Elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it’s no use. The curse I’ve spent my entire life abhorring—the thing I trained so hard to control—no longer exists.
Nym risked her life to save Faelen, her homeland, from a losing war, only to discover that the shapeshifter Draewulf has stolen everything she holds dear. But when the repulsive monster robs Nym of her storm-summoning abilities as well, the beautiful Elemental realizes herwar is only just beginning.
Now powerless to control the elements that once emboldened her, Nym stows away on an airship traveling to the metallic kingdom of Bron. She must stop Draewulf. But the horrors he’s brought to life and the secrets of Bron are more than Nym bargained for. Then the disturbing Lord Myles tempts her with new powers that could destroy the monster, and Nym must decide whether she can compromise in the name of good even if it costs her very soul.
As she navigates the stark industrial cityscape of Bron, Nym is faced with an impossible choice: change the future with one slice of a blade…or sacrifice the entire kingdom for the one thing her heart just can’t let go.
Review: The second book in a trilogy is always a bit tricky. It always seems to have that bridge feeling because it’s leading up to the third book and I can’t say that about a lot of series but, trilogies are the worst in that area because it’s leading up to the third and final book. Only a few times have I read a middle book and loved it as much as the first and I am sad to say that this isn’t one of those times.
Don’t get me wrong, I still loved the book but, after finishing it, I just felt like I got back from a long trip and couldn’t wait to get back into my own bed because this felt like a journey.
Not as many twists and turns in this one, though there is big twist near and at the end that will have your mouth hanging up and needing to find out what happens next.
The journey itself wasn’t bad, it just felt long because of all of the training and planning going on. It’s a little more predictable than the last book, except for the ending, which blew my mind. It is such a surprise and will throw you for a loop
Also, isn’t that cover art amazing? I can’t wait to see what the cover art for the third book will be and I’m eager to read it.
Thank you for reading my review.
