#BookReview: In an Orchard Grown from Ash (Argyrosi #2) by Rory Power

Synopsis: Twisted political games and heart-rending relationship drama abound in this stunning conclusion of a mythic epic fantasy duology.

The Argyros family is torn asunder, their nation betrayed and taken over by former allies, and twins Rhea and Lexos are left standing on opposite sides of the now full-blown rebellion. Will they be able to reconcile--or will there only be a reckoning?


Rating: 2 Stars
My Review: This is one of those books that does 70% of build up for anything to start.  I wished that the action etc. would have been weaved throughout the story instead of right towards the end.  I did enjoy that the author expanded the world but other than that I was pretty bored most of the time. 


“Power’s blood-soaked and tragic conclusion to the Wind-Up Garden duology (after In a Garden Burning Gold) follows the four royal Argyros siblings—Rhea, Lexos, Nitsos, and Chrysanthi—in the wake of personal and political loss. . . . The author probes even deeper into her series’ exploration of power and corruption, but adds a hopeful note amid all the tragedy and destruction that makes the bloodshed feel worthwhile. Series fans will find this a satisfying conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly
