She must embrace her new life—and her strange new body—if she hopes to save the only place she and her family have left to call home.
Filled with action, mystery, and heartbreak, Crimson Earth finds Aeva, Ruven, and Karth on opposing sides as the war between The False Alliance and the Monarchy draws near.
Can they band together to fight against the evil threatening the City? Or will they destroy each other before the war has even begun? (Goodreads)
It's been waaaaay too long since I posted a book review. I've been in a total reading slump so far this year. Not because I haven't had good books to read, but because somehow my time keeps getting eaten up by extraneous things that I can't seem to get a handle on. Anyhow, I will somehow rectify this. Even if it means slowing the rotation of the earth to get a few more hours in ;) Okay, on with my review:
I LOVED the first book in this series. The characters are wonderfully drawn, the world is amazing and frightening, and the ability to Modify humans seems natural and quite ingenious (if a little freaky at times...but I'd get over that if it meant I could have wings!). Soliveres does not falter whatsoever in her second book in the series. The action does not pause and the characters continue to change and grow. I absolutely felt for them all throughout the entire book, especially watching Aeva make such heart-wrenching decisions (there *may* have been some serious eye-misting at a particular scene with her sister, but I'm going to try and avoid spoilers). The antagonist, Behr, presence is felt throughout the story, even if he isn't actually there, which ramps up the tension and made it difficult to put the story aside. Overall, this is definitely an amazing novel and a stellar follow-up on the first the series. The only trouble will be waiting for the third!
