Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion #2) Reviews
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
3.75 (very, very, very, very close to a 4)
"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.
** I won this in a GR giveaway**
I enjoyed this book better than the first one in the series. The story started out a bit slow for me but picked up speed towards the middle of the book. The story alternates POV between Anna and Matyas. I found Matyas's POV to be more exciting and interesting and Anna's was more dull and political for my tastes although I did enjoy her POV later on in the book.
Overall, Lost Crow Conspiracy was a quick, entertaining read which ended on a high note and I'm looking f ...more
.... I loved the historical elements, and getting a deeper look into the fantasy elements, and the mix of the two. I really enjoyed the character development. I should add characters, because the characters all had interesting storylines, and I was not excepting a lot of what happens, to happen. The pacing itself is slow in a lot areas, which made for me not loving the book as much as I wanted to. However, Eve's richly detailed storytelling definitely kept me hooked, and I can't wait to see what ...more

I had a weird thing happen when I read this book. I couldn't, for the life of me, remember what happened in book one, and I mixed up the plots of this and another book. I still can't tell you how book one went. I remember enjoying it, and I gave a 3-4 stars, but I... I don't know what is going on in book 2. I definitely need to read the first book again before I try the second, because, while it's written beautifully (despite my still not enjoying all of the accented names) nothing is sticking w ...more
