This breathtaking sequel to The Beholder will take you on a journey into a darkly sparkling fairy tale, perfect for fans of The Selection and Caraval.
When Selah found true love with Prince Torden of Norway, she never imagined she’d have to leave him behind. All because the Beholder’s true mission was a secret Selah’s crew didn’t trust her to keep: transporting weapons to the rebels fighting against the brutal tsarytsya, whose shadow looms over their next port of Shvartsval’d. A place Selah hoped she’d never go.
But gone is the girl who departed Potomac filled with fear. With a stockpile of weapons belowdecks and her heart hanging in the balance, Selah is determined to see the Beholder’s quest to its end.
WHY I’M WAITING:
I had seen the first book out and about when at bookstores but I wasn’t sure what to think of it. I ended up buying the ebook when it was on sale and devoured the book. I wasn’t quite sure what to think of it at first, if I’m being honest, but then the book just hit a momentum and I loved it and I was devastated and emotional as all hell at the end of it. I canNOT wait until this book and I say this as a girl who has the e-ARC sitting patiently for her on her Kindle right now. I’m in the worst reading slump and its driving me insane because I can’t wait to see how this ends! The story took such an unexpected twist at the end of book two and became something completely different. Its hard to explain without spoilers! But basically you spend the entire book thinking that its THIS book and then there are massive bombs dropped at the end of the book that make you go OH, there’s a LOT more going on here than I knew. I love the characters and I love the twists and turns and I love the unexpected here and I’m seriously so excited to find out what happens!
