I would like to first thank both NetGalley and Random House for allowing me to read and review this book. Sorry it took me so long to do so.
Good Reads Synopsis:
Ana Mikhailov is the only surviving member of the royal family of Cyrilia. She has no army, no title, and no allies, and now she must find a way to take back the throne or risk the brutal retribution of the empress. Morganya is determined to establish a new world order on the spilled blood of non-Affinites. Ana is certain that Morganya won’t stop until she kills them all.
Ana’s only chance at navigating the dangerous world of her homeland means partnering with Ramson Quicktongue again. But the cunning crime lord has schemes of his own. For Ana to find an army, they must cross the Whitewaves to the impenetrable stone forts of Bregon. Only, no one can be certain what they will find there.
A dark power has risen. Will revolution bring peace–or will it only paint the streets in more blood.
I wasn’t a fan of this book. I only gave it 3 stars. This is the second book in the Blood Heir Trilogy.
This book does place where it left off in the first book. Ana is the last surviving member of her royal family. There is a war going on and she doesn’t have an army, title or allies to help her. She has to figure out how to take back her throne. She doesn’t know the area very well and navigating is hard. She must rely on a crime lord to help her. This crime lord has his own agenda for helping her. Will she accomplish what she has set out to do? Will there be a war and if so will it work?
I am interested enough to read the third and final book. I need to know what happens and if the two will come together.
