Synopsis The electric second book in the Heart of Thorns trilogy explores the effects of power in a dark magical kingdom—and the fierce courage it takes to claim your body as your own. Mia Rose is back from the dead. Her memories are hazy, her body numb—but she won’t stop searching. Her only hope to save the boy she loves and the sister who destroyed her is to find the mother she can never forgive. Pilar is on a hunt of her own. Betrayed by her mother, and plagued by a painful secret, she’s determined to seek out the only person who can exact revenge. All goes according to plan… until she collides with Prince Quin, the boy whose sister she killed. As Mia, Pilar, and Quin forge dangerous new alliances, they are bewitched by the snow kingdom’s promise of freedom and opportunity. But with the winter solstice drawing near, they must confront the truth beneath the glimmering ice, as lines between friend, foe, and lover vanish like snowflakes on a flame.
All I’m saying is, this sequel was pretty wild.
In the history of sequels, it does fall along some of the same lines, but even the common tropes are used to further character relationships. If you read the first book and liked it, I recommend giving the sequel a chance as well. In my opinion, it’s even better.
Somehow, it fixes some of the flaws I saw in the first book, which sort of improved my view of the series in general which is always nice. The writing style still isn’t really up my alley, but I can get past that for the sake of the plot.
I also love that while the author tackled some dark subjects, they didn’t seem like thy were just thrown in for the sake of the plot. She did it with care, even adding a trigger warning, which is so important and something I find isn’t extremely common unfortunately.
Overall, I’d recommend the book to anyone who enjoys YA Fantasy, as well as coming of age type books.
