In the second installment of the Daevabad trilogy, Nahri’s life has changed drastically from the life she lived in Cairo. She is forced to live in the dangerous palace of her ancestors where everyone could be an enemy and she doesn’t know who to trust.
Let me start this review by saying that I started listening to this book on audiobook. The audiobook was wonderful! It taught me all the pronunciations, the narrator had a soothing yet engaging voice, and I really liked how deep I was immersed into the story. However, the book was just so good that I thought the audiobook was too slow for me! I know that you can speed up the audio, but I didn’t want to miss anything so I decided to buy the ebook. I finished it so quickly after that! So I own both the audiobook and the ebook and I am not ashamed!
So I really liked the first book of this series, but it was a lot of world building so it was mostly more information than action. This book had all the action and it was amazing!!!! OMG I WAS ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT THE ENTIRE TIME! There were so many twists and turns in this book and I was always questioning all alliances or characters the entire read. I felt myself liking characters more than the previous book and characters that I loved in the first book started to annoy me in this one.
I finally started to understand the differences between the different classes of daevas in this book and we got to meet and get to know more magical characters in this book and I enjoyed every minute of it. All the forms of daevas were unique and very interesting, but I probably would want to be either a nahid or a fire worshiper as they are so rudely called in the book world. I would love to have a healing magic or the ability to set things on fire.
There were more characters in this book than the previous book and the audiobook really helped me with this. I knew who was who and how they fit into the storyline and it was such an intricate and well thought out plot. It was just SO GOOD! I found myself screaming and wanting to throw the book and hug it at the same time!
I loved Nahri so much in this book. She has grown a lot since the first book and I found myself cheering her on and if anyone tried to get in her way, I would get really upset with them, even if I loved their character. The whole book I was so so so so SO angry with Dara and Muntadhir equally mostly for this reason. Dara is just so blinded by his rage and hate that he makes so many terrible mistakes and his chapters only served to make me more angry with him and his stupidity. Muntadhir can also eat my shorts for all I care. He just UGH! I feel bad for Nahri and Jamshid that he has to deal with him and his stupid drunk antics. He just reminds me of a poor little rich boy and I am not amused.
Ali is my favorite in this book, HANDS DOWN! He is just so perfect in every way and he is definitely going on my book boyfriend list! His passionate and caring nature is just swoon worthy in every possible way. I love me some Ali and I can’t wait until the next book to get more of my beautiful bae!
The plot was such an amazing thrill ride! The book took a turn in a direction that I never expected and I was so interested the entire time. I can’t wait to see what the last book has in store! I can’t believe this wonderful series is almost over!
