"The Savior's Sister is utterly unputdownable. It's compulsive, addictive, and mesmerizing. If you love romance, fantasy, and bloodshed, ignore your TBR pile, this is the only dark fantasy novel you need."
- Sacha Black, Bestselling Fantasy and nonfiction writing craft author
"The Savior's Sister is one of those gritty, sexy (and occasionally violent) books you can't put down. It gives a brand new perspective on the events of The Savior's Champion, particularly the political intrigue from Leila's point of view. The story dives deeper into the magical world of Thessen, and I can't wait to see what's next for Leila and Tobias."
- Meg LaTorre, Founder of iWriterly and science fiction and fantasy author
"The Savior's Sister is an utterly spellbinding read. Steeped in rich lore, bloodshed, and a slow-burn romance to die for, this book will draw you in and keep you reading long into the night."

If you haven't read this series yet, you are missing out!
And if you haven't watched Jenna on YouTube, then I just feel sorry for you. You're missing the sassiest, funniest, and most helpful booktuber out there!
I have watched about all of Jenna Moreci's videos on Youtube over the past couple years. She gives writing helps and combines her looks and craziness to maximum effect. Reminds me of my eccentric cousin. Bought the hardback to repay Jenna.
I enjoyed the first book better, The Savior's Champion. A real page turner as a dozen odd men fought to the death in a magical labyrinth. The only fault was perhaps some aspects of the book were too predictable.
While the first book was through the eyes of the Champion, this is through the eyes of the Savior. An interesting and bold decision for a book. The problem is, the men fighting and dying are the heart of the book. And since I already knew all about that the book just seemed to be not fresh enough. It's like half the plot is well known.
I could see the author build up new mysteries, villians, characters and places, she really worked hard for this to be a new experience. But for me this just felt too familiar. And she tried to set up the logic and reasons things could not have been resolved far easier and faster, I just will say I was not convinced. But the Savior had to do some fancy footwork to keep her work moving, like a clown juggling while seated on a unicycle.
I thought the two main twists at the end of the book were not telegraphed sufficiently so I could have even guessed as to what they were (traitor and villain's purpose). I could be wrong.
The worst thing I could say about this book is it took me three weeks to read.
Don't read further unless you have read the book.
The main mystery, who was the spy/traitor, was really played up in the novel. However, once revealed the person was of no consequence or interest. Just one of many faces. And what horrible things was this spy doing? To tell the truth, I couldn't tell you anything of consequence and I just finished to book.
The secondary mystery, what was the villian up to, I felt, was way underdeveloped through the novel. It seems this should have been hyped more throughout the novel. This plot point, really, is the whole purpose and drives everything. The burning question of what was this guy's purpose when the consequences would be dire to him should have been considered to make the reader more interested in the reveal.
I did like the semi-spy/traitor reveal. A nice obvious red herring. Though I would have liked to see the villain humiliate her more. From the tone of the book, it seemed tame.
The Savior's Sister is a dark fantasy romance that has a lot of political intrigue, action, and mystery. Jenna masterfully sprinkles in clues so we as readers can solve the mystery before the reveal.
Below I am going to be a little spoilery, so fair warning.
I read The Savior's Champion when it came out and totally fell in love with Tobias & Leila. So when The Savior's Sister was announced, I was very excited to see Leila's side of the story and have theories confirmed or dismissed and as well as get some questions answered.
The novel's prologue starts with a scene from little Leila, providing some groundwork for her character and her relationship with her father. A lot of questions from TSC, such as, how did The Savior get into a power struggle with Thessan's governing body happen are answered right here.
Chapter 1 then takes us to the day before Leila's birthday and gets us caught up on what has happened between the prologue and now in a way that isn't overwhelming. We're introduced to some new faces as well as get to see some old ones.
The rest of the novel continues to follow Leila as she fights to live, struggles with allowing herself a love that complicates her very precarious plan to stay alive, and battles her father in a very deadly shadow game.
Leila & Brontes relationship is one of my favorite parts of the story. I really love how similar, yet different they are in looks, personalities, and methods.
I just want to take a moment and REALLY appreciate both Brontes as an antagonist-- strong, cunning, sassy, unrepentant, and malicious-- as well as his senate. Each senator unique and interesting in their own way. I especially loved Erebus and Kastor. GREAT antagonists. I'm just saying.
Of course, the ROMANCE was absolutely phenomenal. Seeing scenes from TSC through Leila's eyes was amazing. I really enjoyed getting to see if I had picked up on her mood and feelings accurately from TSC and yes, just yes. Plus there's NEW romance scenes, so hells to the yaaaassss.
The power plays are intense. The breadcrumbs for readers to uncover the mystery are so tantalizing. The wonderful character dynamics-- some heart warming, many heart breaking, and others blood boiling. All of this left me aching for the next chapter immediately.
I give this novel 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who loves seeing a strong heroine in a deadly game of politics uncover a mystery and build a very healthy romance.

I eagerly await TSA!
We got to meet characters we never have before and we have learnt new things we didn't because it is all through Paula's perspective and I love that. I have a little crush on Erebus, a new character in this book. I hate Wimbledon even more and Delphi... She remains such an amazing character and my favourite in this series.
Truly, I fell in love with the characters, the world, the bloodshed and above all, the romance. This book, the love and romance is to die for. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series
I also feel that characters that were mentioned in passing in the first were given some more backstory and page time that fleshed out the story and world. The descriptions and worldbuilding were something in the first I wished were more discussed and the Savior's sister does a lot to fix that, especially with Leila's perspective, who I really enjoyed.
Some few scenes that I had a really guttural reaction to, which usually never happens to me, so kudos to Jenna!. If you liked the first one and enjoy a more politically intriguing story I would definitely give this a recommend.
