#BookReview: The Boi of Feather and Steel (The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass #2) by Adan Jerreat-Poole

Synopsis: Tav struggles to come to grips with who they are — and who they are becoming — in this thrilling sequel to the moving, lyrical fantasy The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass.

After Tav’s dangerous journey to the magical City of Eyes, they realize they’re more than just a purple-haired, motorcycle-riding teenager who can see magic — they know how to use it.

Returning to the human world, the City of Ghosts, Tav’s team races to heal the wounds in the veil between worlds as Tav struggles to come to grips with who they are — and who they are becoming. Meanwhile, an army of child witches has risen up to overthrow the tyrannical world-eating Coven. With blood and magic spilled on both sides, who will survive?


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: 
I wanted to check this one out since I did enjoy most of book one.  But sadly this one had the same issues as the first.  It was far to long and by the time I got to the end, I lost interest in the story and the characters.  I wished that this one had been cut and the pacing towards the end would have been so much better. 


A moving, lyrical debut. Fantasy readers will fall in love with Jerreat-Poole's sharp-tongued assassin and diverse, vividly rendered magical world. ― Heather Fawcett, author of Even the Darkest Stars, for The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass

A unique, gripping, engaging book by a voice that the genre has been waiting for. ― Seanan McGuire, for The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass

In the midst of this dark, murderous fantasy, debut author Jerreat-Poole explores complex themes of oppression, abuse, belonging, and identity. A raw and chaotic force of magic. ― Kirkus Reviews, for The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass
