“You probably think that was excessive,” he said, dropping the crumpled, blood-stained napkin onto his plate. “It wasn’t. No one speaks of you or to you like that and lives.”

Ugh, this book! I absolutely loved it. All things I did not get out of book one, I had in book two. Loved the banter and conversations between Poppy and Cas. Additionally, we got a very involved look into the development of their relationship. Plus, I love that Poppy did not just let Cas off the hook for everything from FBAA. Cannot say enough about the character development in this book. ( )

I really, really, really wanted to love this one as much as I loved the first one. Heck, I would've settled for liking this book.

But unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it.

While I could've gotten behind the slow pacing, very sparse plot and direction of this book (but honestly nothing really happened until at least half way in), the repetitive conversations and awkward dialogue made me want to stop reading time and time again (only my stubbornness to not DNF a book forced me to finish).

The biggest thing for me was the interactions and dialogue between the characters was very informal and at times too 'modern', which seemed to clash against the setting and time of the book (but it's all fantasy so everything is made up anyway).

While I can see why some people like and even love this book. It just didn't do it for me this time. ( )

2.5 stars unfortunately. This isn't that much longer than book one but it took me much longer to read because this book just didn't hold my interest as well as the first book.

I don't think this is a bad book. The writing is still fine and there were still character and relationship moments that I really enjoyed. The problem was that I was really bored for a lot of this book. This book did not need to be this long. I was expecting for this book to be an exploration of the world while they were traveling to Atlantia but there was barely any travel. Instead there was just a lot of exposition where they all just sat around and talked about their world. The few times where there was action, it resolved extremely quickly with very few major consequences. Even in the big battle at the end, which I expected to last for a bit, was resolved very fast, within a chapter if I'm not misremembering. There was a plot twist at the end and I'll be interested to see where that goes, but I found it mostly predictable.

I still like the characters, I just found some of their dialogue to be a bit repetitive. Their banter was fun in the first book but in this book I was so annoyed at Cas every time he called Poppy violent. It just came up so much and I just wanted to see some more development in the relationship. There were parts of the relationship I did really like and I was definitely still rooting for them, but it took them so long to believe the other person really cared about them. There were several times where I thought they were finally on the same page only for them to continue to insist the other person didn't really love them. I'm hoping that this is an issue that won't show up as much in the next book. I did really enjoy Kieran and I hope he continues to play a large role in the next book.

I will probably continue with this series even though I didn't like this a ton. I think JLA probably felt like she had to do more world building in this book I just thought it was a bit dull but I'm hopeful that now we understand the world better, there will be more plot in book three. ( )

I can't wait for the remaining books from this series!
You know the books, at the end of which, you cant decide whether you wanna strangle the author or fall on your knees begging for the next book in the series?
This particular book gives one mixed feelings at the end.
Now I have been a fan of Jennifer Lynn Armentout for the past couple of years, so I can say without a doubt that this is the best that she has written so far, and I can only hope that she goes on to make us more proud. Proud of her books and proud of her characters.
There are a couple of things that have been common in the female protagonists in al off JLA's books- strength, badassery and excessive affinity for sharp objects.
The most amazing thing that I have come to understand about Poppy is her ability to grow into herself, to come out of the mold that she was forced into for years. It is not easy to break your mold, but Poppy does it in a way that inspires me and takes my breath away in the same second.
What about the male protagonist? Hawke,or Casteel Da'Neer, is a man complete in himself, despite all his lies and betrayal, one thing that stands out about him is his ability to encourage poppy to become the best version of herself.
Handing over Poppy and getting his brother, Prince Malik, is all that he has dreamed of. Yet, the second Casteel gets to know Poppy, he knows that it will be the last thing that he could do. He fell, he fell so hard for her, that he couldn't exchange her for his own brother.
The most beautiful part of the whole book, for me, is their wedding. It had a whole lot of magic, unlike any described in any other book before. The whole time I was entranced.
Poppy, gaining confidence in herself, also gains from her powers. She becomes something no one has ever seen, or heard. Naturally it puts fear in the masses. Her masses.
What happens when the people revolt against her? Did she react back? Or did she hold back?
You'll have to read the book yourselves to find that. Just beware, the ending is not something that we could have ever expected, and that's why it is also the best.

I loved the first book in this series and this one certainly did not disappoint! The betrayal that crescendoed at the end of book one revealed a head over heels romance that I wish I could have in my own life. But I think my favorite part of this book is not the realness of the heated romance, or the breath taking detail that is built into the fantasy of this world, but the depth of the plot line that just seems to plunge deeper at every twist and turn. It is so rare for me to not have any inkling of where a book is going and this series has kept me on my toes like no other. The unexpected magic that has been woven into the plot has kept me hooked, and I was practically sprinting to grab the next book after finishing this one! ( )

I don’t want to pretend,” I whispered. “I’m Poppy and you’re Casteel, and this is real.
Let’s make a deal that we don’t borrow tomorrow’s problems today.
He was the first thing I’d ever truly chosen for myself.
Always,” he whispered in the breath we shared. “Your heart was always safe with me. It always will be. There is nothing I will protect more fiercely or with more devotion, Poppy. Trust in that—in what you feel from me.
I fell for you when you were Hawke, and I kept falling for you when you became Casteel.
