Chatine was able to escape Bastille and ends up with a group that are more like mercenaries. They have escaped Latarre and stay out of the politics. They stay neutral and don't pick either side, but as mercenaries, they will take on jobs for pay.
Alouette sets out to find more about her mother and runs into touble. She finds out why her mother faked Alouette's death.
Marecllus, now labeled as a trailor, tries to figure out what the weapon is grandfather is trying to build. He finds out the General has been working with their rival planet, Albion, to build the weapon.
Albion has adapted to the First World English where Laterre has French influence. I love the world building, it's very intricate and unique. Reading this book is like watching a movie to me. The story is well written with an expanding plot. There are new allies as well as a new defactor group that has a different goal than the Vanguarde. Fantastic read and I highly recommend it. I can't wait for the 3rd book!
There’s a lot that can’t be discussed in this review because of spoilers, but I gotta say, I loved that we got to see outside of Laterre in this book, and how things work on other planets. The introduction of three new major characters to be a part of the team infused it with new energy, especially the sparkling personality of self-claimed ‘criminal mastermind’ Gabriel, who just screams ‘we are all gonna die’ at every minor inconvenience, and self-claimed ‘sympathizer’ Cerise, who just wants to punch him at every instance, but you can definitely see their relationship developing in between the bickering. Etienne was also a treat, but his home especially is a symbol of hope for Chatine, who never knew such a loving society could exist where people do things for each other out of love and community. The twists and reveals in this sequel were not all surprising, since some of them had nicely placed foreshadowing at various points, so it was also fun to unravel some mysteries of the plot. It also made the long length of this book worth it, which at 690 pages, could have felt tiring but instead just allowed for more development between characters, character storylines and the world-building.
Overall, it is a fantastic sequel, with an action-packed plot and the addition of new characters to love!
