I give it - 5/5
My review - I really enjoyed how this story ended. It is such a fun concept and a really interesting story line that will keep the reader gripped from the very beginning. This book follows off from the events of the first book, The Storm Crow, following Thia, Res and her friends on a journey to try and get other kingdoms to join her and fight Queen Razel and Illucia. I HIGHLY recommend reading the first one as this duology is just fantastic. It was so fun and I really enjoyed reading about the characters and this journey and fight they where on.
Thia learns a lot in this book and she is also trying to show everyone she isn't her mother's daughter and to show everyone what she can do. Convincing everyone is going to be hard but she is determined to fight this fight.
I love Thia. She is not a perfect main character but, she does suffer with mental health and I think it was done really well in this book. It doesn't magically go away but she does do things to remind herself she is worth it and I really enjoy that part of the book. She is a very relatable character.
This book is so interesting and a great way to end a wonderful duology. If you haven't read the first one I can't recommend it enough as this second one will take you on a journey you won't regret. Kalyn has created an amazing world with this book and the relationship between Thia and Res is so cute. I love the magic, the bond between crows and riders it is so different from any other fantasy I've read.
A very fun book!
