The sequel was packed with just as much danger and intrigue as the previous book, and actually drew me in even more! By now, I had a pretty solid grip on the senior MCs and was quickly adjusting to the juniors. Truly, I think I enjoyed this ride more than the first, but perhaps just because everything is already set in motion and I have a solid footing in the plot, the characters, and the world. I'm already dying for book 3. Of course, it doesn't help that I thought I had more chapters to read and then, nope fooled ya...extras. I swear, I don't think I've ever been more disappointed to see the extra content, which I normally love.
Just as before, the book was well-written (and nothing pulled me out of the groove this time. I didn't see any boo-boos at all), the characters positively charming (and some really sweet minor characters that have me hoping against hope that I'll see again!), the world fan-freaking-tastic (makes me want to go there! I loved the little bit of Italy I've seen and I definitely want more!), and the plot as engrossing as ever before. I'm hanging on a thread here! Two-day shipping better hurry up!
Minor violence, tactfully handled. Super-sweet romance, nothing worse than a few stolen kisses (medieval peeps were pretty chill XD). And no swearing. There was a scene where some...lustful implications were made, but it was brief and not detailed in any way whatsoever, again, very tactfully handled.
Like it’s predecessor, Cascade was filled with daring escapes, heart wrenching tragedy, heart warming romance, and jaw-dropping battles. There was so much conflict and thrilling adventure contained within its pages that it felt like I hardly had a chance to breathe… and I loved every minute of it. The characters of this series are so well-voiced that I can’t help but feel that I too am one of their comrades at arms. In so many books I read it is impossible to tell one character from another. Often, I can’t even keep track of which character belongs to which name… there was none of that here. Each character is an individual and full of personality and depth. The world building was rich and vibrant, and contained an ever-present edge of danger that made me feel like I couldn’t let my guard down. Even when it seemed like things were going well, I knew that the well-won peace for the characters would soon come to an end.
This is a fantastic series for young adults, and I’m personally going to induct the entire series onto my to-keep shelf. I would happily recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA fiction. There is a lot of blood, gore, and war in it’s pages, but romance-wise, the story is clean. I believe the more mature elements of the story were respectfully done, and I wouldn’t have a problem recommending it to any young teen. This is a strong second book, and I can’t wait to finish the series!
Loved the details the author used to describe exactly what it was like in that time period. I could envision the castles, and the horses, and so many things. She made this story come alive. Five stars weren't enough for this rating.
