This sequel picks up where book one left off... Luna and Fowler are separated and it's up to Luna to fight the dwellers for Fowler's safety. When she finds him underground though, it is a tad too late. He needs medical attention which leads them both to a new kingdom full of controlling people and hate. When their secrets are revealed the King does everything in his power to betroth them and unite kingdoms. Enter Chasan: The cocky, yet sumptuous prince that favors Luna. I felt so guilty, but I actually REALLY liked him like A LOT. His exterior may have been hard, but beneath the tough layer, was kindness. Luna and Fowler play the King's games for a while, but their ultimate goal is to escape. When they finally break free it's not at all what you expect. HOLY CRAP, Luna is a BADA$$ and that ending!... Just one more reason to love this series.
Why 4 stars you ask? Well book one set the standards too high... In Reign we met new characters, found out secrets, and explored a new creepy world. It's pages of firsts and I don't think any sequel could live up to that kind of perfect. I'm not sure if the Author plans to write a book 3, but I'm pretty sure I'd read infinite books about these characters. It's a fantastic, unique world.
I reviewed the first book Reign of Shadows (here) last month having finished the audiobook in one sitting. I dove into the second audiobook knowing I couldn’t finish in one sitting, despite how appealing it was and the story might have wanted me to do so. I started it at work and work comes first there but I did manage to get a good chuck finished and then listened in a couple more chucks to finish it up. Stopping each time was hard as the story kept you listening. I highly enjoyed the two narrators for Luna and Fowlers POV’s the same ones that did the first book so cheers for continuity.
We left off Reign of Shadows in a huge cliffhanger. Dwellers had just taken Fowler down into the earth and Luna dove in after to save him even though she was confused and made at him for having not told her h was the son of the man who killed her parents sooner. She had left him and took off on her own but he had found her and saved her but she isn’t a damsel in distress. She may be blind but she sees more than most and I love how this could be a handicapped and really limit Luna but it only makes her stronger in a world of darkness. Fowler knows how strong she is and respects that about her knowing she is capable but still he wants to protect her when he can because that is who he is, and that is what she means to him. I just adore their dynamic. They save one another. They don’t leave the other behind to danger but stand together or go after one another.
Both Luna and Fowler have a claim to Relhok in their own way and that makes them wanted. When Fowler is injured and Lagonia soldiers offer them to help they have to risk someone knowing them or risk Fowler’s life. Outside of Relhok they discover that every kingdom has its darkness. I liked getting to see another kingdom and see the people. While the first story took place in Relhok we didn’t see much of the inner city it was mostly the outskirts in the wild/open so seeing more from the inner safety of a city was a contrast. It makes you wonder which dangers are worse dwellers or the evil of man.
This book is also the end of the series as far as I can tell. I didn’t know if that was going to be the case or not and it leaves you thinking it couldn’t possibly end (or was going to end in another horrible cliff hanger like ending) as you get closer to the end with so few minutes/pages left. It seems impossible to end but then as it happens it just clicks. Part of me thinks it was a bit anti-climactic but the other part of me thinks it was an awesome twist that just made me laugh so I’m conflicted a bit here. Would I have liked more? Yes. Can I still enjoy the duology as is with the ending? Also yes. Would I recommend the series? Yes. I enjoyed the overall story and while I think I did enjoy Reign of Fire more than the conclusion I did enjoy the series and they were such quick listens I think anyone can fly through them for easy enjoyment.
