My Rating: 3.5/5
- Enjoyed the book and unique writing style again. It was a good story and so much was revealed and came to a close.
- I don’t remember if I mentioned it in the last book, but when they do their singing I always kind of got confused. I was never sure if there was words, or just sounds. It gets a little clearer in this book but I also think some of the singing would have been amazing with lyrics so we could feel their emotions even more.
- I still enjoyed the first book more, most likely because this world was so new at the time, but this was a good addition. People who loved the first book will still enjoy this one!

My Rating: DNF
- All three sisters have their own chapters. We get to know them as the story goes on but after a while it starts to get a little dull and nothing much happens.
- At 42% the main focus is only on two sisters, Katherine doesn’t show up much. And the chapters with Arsinoe seem to focus way more on her friend Jules than the actual girl who is going to fight to be queen, which was kind of weird.
- It was almost half way into the book and the sisters still hasn’t met. I was hoping they would have gotten to the Beltane a lot quicker so they could start competing against each other. Aside from a love interest for a character who isn’t a queen.
- I ended up DNFing this book because I lost interest and not much happens. I don’t know if and when it picks up, but I wasn’t enjoying myself and I kept wanting to read other books.
