HOUSE OF RAVENS
(Book 2, The Nightfall Chronicles)
You think you know the path to victory? Then tell me how you'll win.
Will you buy triumph with gold and favors? Will you marshal armies and trade in blood? Or will you be the hand in the dark, your fingers on the strings? Whatever you decide, know this. If you put the innocent at risk...
You will answer to me.
I am the keeper of secrets and the teller of lies. I am the shadow of death and the bringer of light. I will become a Knight of the First.
And the Orders will crumble.
Thrilling from start to finish, this multifaceted story took all of my favorite aspects from a number of different genres and combined them into one heart-breaking but kick ass read. It was like a mashup of some of my most loved series', including the likes of Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and The Night Watchmen series, but with its own unique qualities that made it stand out from the rest. I loved everything about it.
While book one was a great introduction to Scarlett, the Orders, and the Nephilim war, I enjoyed how this book gave me more insight into the goings on in Castle V and the Initiate program. It was also great to see Scarlett make some friends and for her to gain some sort of normalcy back, between all the chaos, secrets, and lies.
Although I love Jax, Kai was super amazing and sweet, once he stopped being a royal douche. And, with all the complications between Jax and Star, it was good to see her with someone who seemed to truly accept her in every way. I had to wonder though if Jax would be as accepting is she just gave him half a chance. I also had to wonder about his whereabouts throughout the story, even though I had an inkling as to where he might be, and I was glad to see I was right.
This story was a complex, twisted web of deceit, that saw alliances built on lies crumble to the ground as they destroyed Nightfall's world more than the Orders ever could. It was a constant game of cat and mouse as she fought for justice and freedom, which meant going against those she's shared a common goal with as well as those who were her enemies, proving that trust is a fickle thing.
With many surprises hidden in the pages of this book, I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. But, OMG, the events at the tournament knocked the breath out of me and saw me turn into an emotional basket case. My heart was ripped from my chest, and I had to stop reading because I couldn't see past my tears.
And, then, to top it off, the Epilogue unleashed so many questions in my mind and had it working overtime. All I can say is that I need the next installment in this series, as in yesterday. Absolutely brilliant.
