A Chinese ninja.
This book the 2nd too Iron Bloom started right where the book left off which I liked a lot because the 1st book ends so abruptly. Again Rose is the strong freak of a warrior who has healing abilities that would kill a normal person 10times over.
There are many battles and wars where she looses friends and fights for friends and with them just because in her heart she Cares for them not to just fight. she doesn’t believe in war just protecting people who can yt? protect themselves.
she is trying to stop with yt? he help of Finn and HErrick.a possession of old world magic of souls that consume other people make them freakishly fast and strong. The 3 accomplish this then the book takes a turn to war where she hasn’t seen Finn in a really long time after her and Finn finally proclaimed their love for one another but she shows up.in we are to help him fight and protect him. this part of the book. just took a turn so different from the end of chapter 6. end of act 1 that it seemed not to fit for me. it k I’ll mad threw off the storyline.
Then when Finn shows back up they end up on a new adventure of finding magic, the very thing Rose despises. But when Finn who can’t even read can read the book.and attains all the magic she becomes concerned she will lose him to this but still follows him to discover it because she loves him.
so my opion of the book is , it’s not as good as the 1st book which I found easier to really get into. This one just is a bit off balance , jumping from soul stealing to war back to old world magic, but it is good. you most definitely need to read book 1 first.
It’s well written which is also l ways a plus.
so.if you l ukulele keep war, Gore, strong women, freakishly, men Alike and a bit of magic you’ll enjoy this book.
I’m going to read book 3 and see where this leads because am a fan of Rose.
I received this book for a honest review.
