#BookReview: Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion #2) by @rosalyneves #NetGalley

About the Book:

Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding—and Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.

Anna Arden did not know breaking the Binding would break the world.

Anna thought the Praetheria were on her side, content and grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas's blood sacrifice to the disarm the spell would bring peace, equality, justice. She thought her future looked like a society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor.

But with the Monarchy breathing down her neck and the Praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun.

As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.

Notes and Opinions:  This was a fabulous sequal to this series man o man I couldnt put it down! If you loved book one you are going to die hard love this one!  I read it in one sitting and I just couldnt stop I need another book now! I really liked the POV switch it was done well and was very smooth.  This one picked right up where book one left off which was wonderful. The character development in this one was top notch and I cant wait to see where we go from here.  Anna is coming into her own and the political discussions in this one were wonderful. You really got the feel of how and what everyone was trying to do and what they wanted to do.  This was an epic fantasy that I couldn't put down and I so want to read again already!

Go Into This One Knowing:  Epic Fantasy, Political (its really good), Growth
