Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion #2) Reviews
I didn’t enjoy this as much as the first book in the series. I was annoyed at the main characters and missed having Gabor more prominent in the story. I did enjoy Matayas’ story line.

LOST CROW CONSPIRACY is everything you could want in a sequel and so much more. It is action-packed, edge-of-your-seat exciting, suspense-filled, and full of surprises. Magical beings, spell-casting and spell-breaking, hidden agendas, manipulation, betrayal, injustice, fierce battles, and a touch of romance make this installment riveting.
The story picks up shortly after the events in the first book in the series. And while things may seem to have settled down following the rebellion, the reality ...more
"But Cesar, didn't you hate the first book? Why would you read the sequel?"
Well, when it comes to me not liking the first book in a series, I want to believe the sequel would be better. There are many cases where the first book is complete crap but the sequel is ten times betters. I like to give the underdogs a chance.
Here's hoping this one isn't complete crap like the first book.
You think because I am a girl, I am weak. Because I speak for those who are given no voice here, my voice should matter less. You are wrong, on both counts. —Anna
Sequels are very unpredictable. You never know if they're gonna hit the mark or miss it completely. I loved Blood Rose Rebellion when I read more than a year ago, so I was eager to dive into this book, believing that it would be even better. Unfortunately, most of my expectations weren't met. To be optimistic about it, at least I enjoye ...more
Just finished reading "Lost Crow Conspiracy". LOVED it! I felt transported as I read Rosalyn's book. I loved her description of St Stephen's Cathedral: "St Stephen's Cathedral hulked against the skyline like a dragon carcass: all blackened spires and knobs, the intricate curved details climbing like scales up it's wall. Even the multicolored tiling on the roof seemed only an extension of the reptilian skin." I had to look up St Stephen's Cathedral online and check out the pictures. The dragons t ...more
Lost Crow Conspiracy is the second book in the Blood Rose Rebellion series. While I was a bit on the fence about the first one, the ending was interesting enough to make me want to continue with the series. You absolutely need to read Blood Rose Rebellion before starting this one, it opens as society begins grappling with the aftermath from the events of book one.
Lost Crow Conspiracy is very politics heavy. As with the first book, I loved how the author melded real history with the fantasy aspec ...more
I received this book through NetGalley against an honest review
I had a great time with Blood Rose Rebellionand I was curious to find out more with it ending, so I was happy to receive an e-arc.
It is always difficult to write a sequel, there are the classic traps of the love triangle, the transition to book 3 which is sometimes to slow, among many others things. Here, I sincerely find that the author has done really well. At the end of Blood Rose Rebellion, the Praetheria were released in Hungar ...more
