Traitor Born (Secondborn #2) Reviews
RELEASE DAY! So good. :)
LURVED IT! This is due to be released on April 17, 2018. I received a digital copy from Netgalley and publisher/author to read and review. Thank you!
I am totally hooked on this world and all the characters. This is one of the few series that a love triangle works for me, although it's more of a love rectangle? I am totally TEAM REYKIN! Hawthorne who? I do love Clifton too and I really hopes he doesn't end up a bad guy.
Roselle spends more time with the fir ...more
Okay, but I really really really need the next book to get released RIGHT NOW because
holy shitfuck that ending.
Wow this was a fun sequel! This one picks up where we left off. Roselle has been taken away from her ally Clifton to the Virtue Bowie’s palace. She is in charge of training his spoiled heir Grisholm.
There a lot of action, violence, and plotting in this one. The world building is excellent as alway. I’ve read a lot of Amy Bartol’s books and her world building is alway incredible. The glossary at the end is also helpful.
It’s hard to give a lot of detail about the plot of a sequel without giving ...more
It's fascinating that she has three overprotective admirers loving her, comforting her, being her rock. I love that she has people to lean on during her weak moments. Her heart continues to tear into pieces as she loses time to save her brother, her friends.
She's starting to show some PTSD and anxiety when she can't handle certain situations. She's thrusted from hand to hand as players come into the scene. Many want to get a hold of her, seeking her skill and face to establish their agenda. She ...more
*I received an ARC from 47 North via Netgalley*
Why??? Why did it have to end like that? Ok, so cliffhangers like that are really the sweetest torture. I loved this one so much more than book 1. In book 2 so much happens. And can I shout my love for Reykin? So much love for him and for so many reasons. Roselle had so much to deal with and I felt everything she felt. I loved this book so much! I seriously wish I had book 3 right now! Oh! And the tension between Roselle and Reykin!!! Ahhh! So many ...more

Review of Secondborn (Secondborn #1)
I enjoyed this book so much more than the first one! I still felt like it had some major flaws but overall it was much more enjoyable than the first book. If you are like me, and you had serious doubts after reading Secondborn, I advise you to give this one a try. It's so much better.
I need to be honest and adres the things that still weren't okay for me. I'm going to try and be brief and afterwards I'm going to focus on a ...more
I need more REYKIN.
I mean, no one is as delicious as my perfect poopsie Kyon…but then again, who is??
And she did it again. Every. Single. Time. Amy Bartol is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her books are my go-to comfort reading. When I’m in a reading rut, when I need a pick-me-up, when I need that perfect sexual tension, her books are the ones I pick up. Something about her style, her world-building, the romance... perfection. And Traitor Born is no exception. Let me put your mind at ease, Bartol didn’t just avoid the dreaded second book slump, she decimated it. Traitor Born took all the ...more
