Description

The long-awaited sequel to the acclaimed YA fantasy Of Fire and Stars! Mare and Denna travel to a new and dangerous kingdom where Denna will be trained to tame her magic by a mysterious queen who is not all she seems. Perfect for fans of Malinda Lo and Kristin Cashore.

Princesses Denna and Mare are in love and together at last - only to face a new set of dangers.

Mare just wants to settle down with the girl she loves, which would be easier if Denna weren’t gifted with forbidden and volatile fire magic. Denna must learn to control her powers, which means traveling in secret to the kingdom of Zumorda, where she can seek training without fear of persecution. Determined to help, Mare has agreed to serve as an ambassador as a cover for their journey.

But just as Mare and Denna arrive in Zumorda, an attack on a border town in Mynaria changes everything. Mare’s diplomatic mission is now urgent: She must quickly broker an alliance with the queen of Zumorda to protect her homeland. However, the queen has no interest in allying with other kingdoms; it’s Denna’s untamed but powerful magic that catches her eye. The queen offers Denna a place among her elite trainees - an opportunity that would force her to choose between her magic and Mare.

As Denna’s powers grow stronger, Mare struggles to be the ambassador her kingdom needs. By making unconventional friends, her knowledge of Zumorda and its people grow, and so, too, do her suspicions about who is truly behind the attacks on Zumorda and her homeland.

As rising tensions and unexpected betrayals put Mare and Denna in jeopardy and dangerous enemies emerge on all sides, can they protect their love and save their kingdoms?

I LOVE my Princesses😘🥰😍

Loved how Denna and Mare evolved to much stronger princesses. They loved each other when they're together but love much more when they're not. My heart ached and blossomed with every emotions the characters felt, thanks to the talented narrators. The story make me want for more of Denna and Mare's adventure, will definitely wait for the third book.🥰🥰🥰

Leaving the success of the first book in the dust!

well I must say I was not only hesitant to begin, I also was weary during the first few chapters that this story would not be a strong follow up. boy was I wrong! this surpassed the first book in both the political turmoil of the kingdoms in this tale, and the romance between the 2 princesses.

i loved this story and its world but

this book series is currently a favorite and the world building was amazing. the dialogue was impeccable. this book also has probably the best performance narration I've heard in a while. but... and light spoilers ahead the ending felt so anticlimactic it felt like it was just too easy to defeat the villain at the end i get the idea behind it but It was just not very well executed. I felt like the pacing just happened to quickly like at one moment someone dies dramatically and the next moment suddenly the fights over "god" is defeated in the span of a few sentences

So happy I found this author

I went through a lot of duds and other books that just did not resonate with me before finding this author and adding her to my favorite writers list.

The characters are complex and interesting and the writing style is very charming. Romantic and quirky and very queer.

A refreshing read for sure.

Rushed Ending

The second installment of this series would have been so much better if it hadn't of felt so rushed. I felt like the entire ending was sort of skimmed over. And considering the amazing build up, the end turned out to be a huge disappointment. I found myself feeling a bit dismayed how all these huge developments were just written down like a tired shrug.

Can't wait for more!

What can I say, this is just an overall amazing book. The narration is amazing, the characters lovable, and the plot very entertaining even if sometimes a bit predictable. Just the way I like! So happy I found this series, it's one of my favorites now :)

A pleasurable read, like it's predecessor.

Short of some writing "faux pas" that were also present in the first installment of this series, including unnecessary redundancy of how the characters felt about one particular thing or another throughout the book, and maybe some narration issues that I think should've been cleared from the beginning, such as how to pronounce a character's name, this series is truly unique and clever. Each book (the first I read, this one listened) kept me on the edge of my seat. They pull at your emotions in the same way the characters' are pulled with each new turn. Even though there were some similarities between plot formulas used for each book, each of the characters are different and show growth throughout. The two main characters also remain a favorite of mine in terms of fictional couples. I was also thrilled to see Moira Quirk and Saskia Maarleveld as narrators for each character, as both are very talented.

I think some people might be put off by the story's climax, but if you think about it for a minute, it was a wise decision on the author's part considering the story's overarching conflict (validity of magic vs non-magic in battle), looping everything together.

The stories as a whole are not without issues, but I've never found time spent on these stories a waste. (Which is an unusual place to be in.) I mean this as a complement to the author, and do hope she continues the series as she's found a fan in me.
