From the Back Cover
Year two at the Academy of Heroes has arrived, and Damian is still trying to control the power fated to drive him insane. Worse, he now finds himself in the most uncomfortable of roles: on a team with other second-years.
Assassins. Black Hats. Lunatics.
The Free States has always been a nation surrounded by enemies: the Weaver to the north, Legion and Steel to the east, and Tezcatlipoca's fanatical legions to the south. Now, a new threat has emerged from within the country's own borders, and Damian finds himself an unwitting cog in that great conspiracy.
But the Academys most infamous student is nobody's puppet. Soon, the people pulling his strings will learn just what happens when you put a necromancer in the corner.

So here we go.
First, this book obviously takes place after the mind blowing finale of the first of the Trilogy. If you thought Damian was a messed up kid/young adult/whatever before, then the trauma of those events left it's mark. Reading about how Damian dealt with that and grew as a person was wonderful. That and the fact that whatever messed up rabbit hole See These Bones created continued deeper and deeper, but actual answers started to show up to questions I didn't even realized I had.
Then were the characters themselves. Red Right Hand brought back most of the cast, with an introduction to new ones, and each character felt like a real person, whether that person was one of the leads or supporting. I have to say this to those of you thinking of buying this book, do so. Words canNOT compare to the feeling this book can give you.
To the author, if you ever actually sit down and read ALL of the reviews, fantastic work. I read your blogs about how hard middle books are to write in trilogies and that you had a difficult time balancing everything, and I must say, you wrote a book that absolutely delivered. I had a harder time putting down this book that See These Bones, and I literally lost sleep on See These Bones because how much I enjoyed it. So thank you for the hard work, because you set a new bar with this Trilogy.
The true horror of this novel occurs in realizing suddenly that you've almost finished it and you want just a few more hours with the story.
There is so much to love about Red Right Hand!
I sincerely hope, after the third installment (a year! I have to wait a damn year!) arrives, Chris continues to give us tales from this world. Even his short offerings "The Stars That Sing" and "The Storm in Her Smile" are gems, polished to perfection by an author truly coming into his own.
If anyone from Netflix is paying attention, here's a story worth investing in!
Damian is one of my favorite characters, I've been reading since I was a kid ( 30+ years now) and I don't think I've ever rooted for someone as much as I have Damian. Even though I'm more then a little worried how it's going to end for him.
My only complaint about the book is I want more:) I love the world that's been created, the characters just everything. Damian is definitely the hero we need.
Chris, if you're reading this... please write faster!
Thank you to NetGalley and Ghost Falls Press for providing this advanced reader copy in exchange for this review.
left is murdered for no reason (the orphanage he grew up in) and after that he gets kidnapped and has his hand chopped off... Do you really want to read this?

Being me, I had to go back and reread the first book (See These Bones) first. So I was frothing-at-the-mouth ready to dig into Red Right Hand. To say it lived up to my expectations is putting it mildly.
I’m pretty sure this author could write about anything and I would gobble it down happily. His writing style is so direct and relatable, and it carries through in all of his works that I’ve read.
But he doesn’t write about just anything. It is obvious that he writes what he wants to write and what he loves to write. There’s no mistaking that sense of dedication and enjoyment.
Back to Red Right Hand. Damian is still a clueless guy who finds himself in the middle of… everything. Some may call him an idiot (as they do in the book). But that’s the best part about this character. He just mows his way through every situation he finds himself in, whether he’s qualified or not. Which brings me to my absolute favorite trait of his. He will not go down without a fight. In fact as far as I can see, he refuses to say die at all. He is one crazy-determined dude and I can’t get enough of him. Grey sweats and all.
I also enjoyed how this book carried over some of my favorite characters and involved them more in the story. (Looking at you, Winter.) Additionally, a few of the characters I hadn’t paid much attention to at all in the first one became major players. That was a pleasant surprise.
I found that Red Right Hand digs deeper into a smaller group of characters than the first book and it’s a natural transition. It was very well done and appropriate for where the story takes us.
The story itself is another perfect mix of triumphant victories (both on and off the battlefield), as well as miserable failures. Every turn of the page keeps you on your toes wondering what in the world is going to happen next.
I absolutely recommend this book and cannot wait for the third installment.
