Hey friends!! I have a fun post about an upcoming sequel, so spoiler warning for the first book if you haven’t read it yet.
About the Book:
Acclaimed author Sara B. Larson continues her enchanting YA fantasy duology with a timeless fairytale feel in an original voice.
The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.
In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.
About the Author:
Sara B. Larson is the author of the acclaimed YA fantasy DEFY trilogy (DEFY, IGNITE, and ENDURE) and the DARK BREAKS THE DAWN duology (DARK BREAKS THE DAWN and BRIGHT BURNS THE NIGHT). She can’t remember a time when she didn’t write books—although she now uses a computer instead of a Little Mermaid notebook. Sara lives in Utah with her husband, their four children, and their Maltese, Loki. She writes in brief snippets throughout the day and the quiet hours when most people are sleeping. Her husband claims she should have a degree in “the art of multitasking.” When she’s not mothering or writing, you can often find her at the gym repenting for her sugar addiction.
I loved the first book in this duology, and I couldn’t wait to read this books after the cliffhanger in book one! Warriors of Wing and Flame picks up right where book one left off, and you are immediately thrust into the action. I noticed this time around it was harder for me to distinguish between the sisters, Zuhra and Inara. This made for confusing reading at times, and I’d have to break to turn back a few pages to remind myself who it was. Maybe it’s because Inara grew so much that she resembled her older sister. Nevertheless, it was a little hard to follow at times. I still really liked reading their different perspectives though, and I loved the growth both sisters experienced in their characters. Sister relationships are some of my favorite to read about, and this book was no exception.
Not only did the sisters experience a lot of character development, but many of the side characters that intrigued me in book one really shined in this book! The plot was very well written for the most part, although there were a few parts that got a bit wordy and it felt like the author used that as filler until the conclusion, which was a bit anticlimactic. The conclusion surprised me, I wasn’t sure if that was truly it or a trick, but it was the final battle and it felt a little lackluster to me. I still did enjoy this book a lot though!
Overall I recommend this to all the classic YA fantasy readers out there, especially if you love sister relationships!
