#BookReview: A Poison Dark and Drowning (Kingdom on Fire #2) by @JessCluess @randomhouse ‏#NetGalley

The magicians want her to lead. The sorcerers want her to lie. The demons want her blood. Henrietta wants to save the one she loves. But will his dark magic be her undoing?

Henrietta doesn’t need a prophecy to know that she’s in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the bloodthirsty Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook’s system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own.

So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients’ past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.

Let me tell you how much I loved book one!! I was finished with it in less than a day! And with three kids, work, and the life I have that is saying something.  I locked myself in my room told the husband to take care of the kids and I finished that baby in under 5 hours. So when this one came to us I was like GIVE IT TO ME NOW!!!! 

So going into book two I sat down and reread book one and of course fell in love all over again.  But this one A Poison Dark and Drowning blew my mind!! AWAY MAN AWAY!!! This one has it all! 

The characters are even better than book one, the danger is even higher than last time and man o man the twists!!!!! They WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS!  There is NO book two syndrome in this baby folks! NOPE!! And I think I can say that I loved this one even more than book one!! 

This one will leave you with your heart ripped out as you fall in love with all the old time characters of book one as well as the new faces we get to see.  The story comes alive with the author's world building and a great paced plot.   The danger is never far behind in this one and it won't let you down.  If you loved book one you will love this one even more!! 

And let me tell you this author is EVIL!! If you think you know whats coming next trust me you don't!
