#BookReview: Kingsbane (Empirium #2) by @clairelegrand


Synopsis: In this sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Furyborn, two queens, separated by a thousand years, connected by secrets and lies, must continue their fight amid deadly plots and unthinkable betrayals that will test their strength—and their hearts.

Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien—but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist.

Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity's long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption—fear of becoming another Rielle—keeps Eliana's power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted—by embracing her mother's power, or rejecting it forever.

My Review: OMG I don't know how I am going to review this without giving things away.  So I am just going to say the following.  The ending of book one murdered me and starting this one I was so happy to get the chance to read it.  This one was even better than book one and I need the next title now.  All the characters shinned and grew in this one and the story flowed so well.  





"Claire Legrand is one of the most exciting voices in YA fantasy-and in YA as a whole-writing right now." - Mackenzie Van Engelenhoven, The King's English Bookshop (Salt Lake City, UT)

"I hope everyone is ready to cry a bucket of tears over this victorious and vengeful sequel... Legrand's writing has never been so fierce and frenetic, and Kingsbane moves at a breakneck pace that left me breathless. I wanted to stay in this world forever and I'll be heartbroken when the trilogy ends." - Sami Thomason, Square Books (Oxford, MS)

"Kingsbane was everything I was expecting from a sequel to Furyborn and more... This is one book I absolutely cannot wait to start selling." - Caitlyn Vanorder, Bookmarks (Winston-Salem, NC)

"Furyborn was incredible, Kingsbane is better! The second novel has even more magic, cliffhangers, and romance... Already excited for the next one in this trilogy. This is a wild ride." - Suzanne Lucey, Page 158 Books (Wake Forest, NC)

"It's the perfect mix of blood, mystery, and high fantasy that readers of the genre crave and an amazing middle hinge for the trilogy to swing on. I am so anxiously awaiting the third book." - Chaning Green, Square Books (Oxford, MS)

"Above and beyond my expectations!" - Leah Atlee, Changing Hands Bookstore (Phoenix, AZ)

"Masterful." - Booklist

"Fans of the first installment won't be disappointed, especially if they enjoyed Sarah J. Maas' lusty romances (A Court of Thorns and Roses, BCCB 7/15, etc.)." - Bulletin of the Center for the Children's Books

"A spell-binding successor to Furyborn...setting up the series for a truly captivating and heart-racing ending." - Hypable
