I’m not gonna offer a synopsis for this one… Because there’s too many spoilers for the first one… And holy cow it’s a lot to encapsulate.
I feel exactly the same way about this one as I did when I reviewed the first one. Solid premise. Intense characters. But it’s really all talk and postulation without very much action… Until the end. And then you get too much action and a cliffhanger all at once.
I still think there were a lot of unneccessary sex scenes. Literally none of them added anything of value to the story. I get that some people like steam for the sake of steam but this is not a romance novel…
I did this one on audio, I found the slinky voice for Parisa was so annoying.
I still find the story compelling… and enjoyed listening to it for the most part, but I’m really hoping the last book will pull everything together in the series will have been worth it.
Thanks to Macmillian Audio for access to the audiobook. All opinions above are my own.
