I was in a bit of heart break over this book. Since the first book, I've loved more characters more than others and other characters less than others. Now it's starting to hurt more that I'm starting to grow more closer to other characters than the first two that I've connected with since the beginning.
This book was in a sense, a mix of fantasy, romance, and magic. Sure, some parts did not work for me at all. Some characters just annoyed me to no end--not because there was anything wrong with them, just that they were conflicting with my feelings. Trust me, I had a lot of feelings about this book (in the Eh Feelings Section below).
Honestly, I had no problems with the plot or the writing pace. The storyline was just as good as the first book. It was just the characters.
I feel like connecting with the characters is hard. Not impossible, just hard and it will definitely be a long process because I don't like all of them.
I liked this book, because it had variety. Variety between what was happening between kingdoms and variety between points of views. Reading the story in various point of views really brings color to the plot.
As for recommendations, I say if you liked the first book then GO FOR IT you won't be disappointed.

Romance: Everything just hurt. It was painful to read about Cleo, Magnus, and Jonas mainly because when I was through with Falling Kingdoms, I had a thing for Cleo and Jonas and wanted them to get together. It hurt more when I felt hope in the second book thinking "Yas, they are totally going to get together and I will be a happy narwal!"
Mmm no. No. NO.
That't not even close to what happened. Magnus wasn't my favorite character in the first book, but he is starting to grow on me and there is a chance that I will like him/ship him with Cleo just like if not more than how I shipped Cleo and Jonas *pinches finger close together*.
