Review: I actually even loved this book more than the first one, if that´s even possible.
It´s an amazing fantasy book but it also have a lot of politics and some love mixed together.
Many people have said that those books only are like all the other YA fantasy books out there, and yes: It´s very similar to other books in some ways but I still love it so much. The characters are amazing, the writing style is great and the world building is also really good!
I have actually nothing bad to say about this book, just go and read it!
I loved that you also got to read it from Helenes perspective because I feel like she´s a really interesting character and it was so fun to get to know her better.
This book made me cry so much, but it was absolutely worth it!!!!
I´m so excited for the third book, I seriously can´t wait!!!
