    Set in the same universe as The Ruby Throne trilogy, this tells the story of the Light Bringer s sister, Lea.The plot was complex enough to hold my attention It was a very simple adventure story with a little romance mixed in.That being said, you really shouldn t read the books in Pearls and the Crown until you ve read The Ruby Throne, since the author did much of the world building in that series Since the Ruby Throne trilogy is worth a read, it shouldn t be too much of a burden.It wasn t lon Set in the same universe as The Ruby Throne trilogy, this tells the story of the Light Bringer s sister, Lea.The plot was complex enough to hold my attention It was a very simple adventure story with a little romance mixed in.That being said, you really shouldn t read the books in Pearls and the Crown until you ve read The Ruby Throne, since the author did much of the world building in that series Since the Ruby Throne trilogy is worth a read, it shouldn t be too much of a burden.It wasn t long enough, in my estimation, because I blasted through each book in a matter of hours I would ve liked to have seenplot development,intrigue to it, as some of the subplots which could have been expanded on seemed to have just been left hanging Oh, and a littlework on the romance part too.Still, a good, clean read and I recommend it

    I don t know why I read this one when I found it s predecessors so uninteresting I must truly have been desperate or I hate to leave things unfinished I felt this work was unfocused and silly I still think the supposed love that springs up between the two main characters was unrealistic and sounded a lotlike Stockholm syndrome than anything to base a marriage on The sad thing is that as unimpressed as I was by this book, I m evenunimpressed with myself for continuing to read it I don t know why I read this one when I found it s predecessors so uninteresting I must truly have been desperate or I hate to leave things unfinished I felt this work was unfocused and silly I still think the supposed love that springs up between the two main characters was unrealistic and sounded a lotlike Stockholm syndrome than anything to base a marriage on The sad thing is that as unimpressed as I was by this book, I m evenunimpressed with myself for continuing to read it, just because I had to finish the series insert obligatory eye roll here

    I was a bit shocked by the ending So shadrael saves tje whole of the emperor s army an the ulinians by killing brathel essence and nothing happens No mob acclaiming no enemies showing him respect for what he d done no nothing He s still seen as the backstabing blackguard who kidapped the princess That was a bit too much of an omission when both books are supposed to lead to this huge war dead people versus living Other than this rushed and lacking end great book


  6. Catherine Catherine says:

    I would actually rate this 2.5 stars I was very disappointed with this one after the first book I felt like I missed an entire book in the middle where Lea and Shadrael fell in love They spent most of the book separated, and the book was really hard to get through because I didn t believe in any of the characters motivations or emotions It finally picked up in the last quarter or so, which is why I didn t give it 2 flat stars.

    Decent, but it s one of those books that you read an just think to yourself the author just needed to reach a little BIT further and it could have been mind blowingly amazing, but the author didn t, so it s just okay I m glad I was able to get my hands on one of her books though, as oddly most libraries don t carry them for some reason

    Phenomenal conclusion to the series begun with The Pearl This book had me on the edge of my seat and had many unexpected twists If you pick up the first, I recommend you have the second handyand time to read both since you won t want to put them down.

    A must read for fantasy lovers Some war, but not too much Magic and romance combine for an unpredictable, adventurous love story A must read for fantasy lovers Some war, but not too much Magic and romance combine for an unpredictable, adventurous love story

    I liked the first book enough that I went and got the second book but the story in the second book sort of fell flat I was expectingof a change in the heroine from book one to book two, but she remained too perfect, and too nice to be of much interest.
