3.8
Th fierce sequel full of sisterhood, heart pounding action, betrayal, and intrigue in the royal court in a series that " breathes new life into the feminist story of alienatio and resistance " ( Publisher 's Weekly).

anished by Asa at the nd of Grace and Fury, Nomi and Malachi find themselves powerless and headed towards their all-but-certain deaths. Now that Asa sits on the throne, he would stop at nothing to make sure Malachi never sets foot in the palace again. Their only hope is to find Nomi 's sister, Serina, on the prison island of Mount Ruin. But when Nomi and Malachi arrive, it is ot the island of conquered, broken women that they expected. It is an island in the grip of revolution, and Serina -- polite, submissive Serina -- is its leader.

Betrayal, grief, and iolence have changed both sisters, and the me of Mount Ruin have their sights set on revenge beyond the confines of their island prison. They plan to sweep across the entire kingdom, issuing in a new age of freedom for all. But first they 'll have to get rid of Asa, and only Nomi knows how.

Separated once again, this time by choice, Nomi and Serina must forge their own paths as they aim to tear down the world they know, and build something better in its place.

The stakes are higher and the battles bolder in Tracy Banghart 's unputdownable sequel to Grace and Fury.

Queen of Ruin was the conclusion to the Grace and Fury duology and while it was better than the secon novel, I ye found it a bit lacking.Plot: 3/5Characters: 4/5Writing: 4/5 At the brea of thi ovel, the two isters, Serina and Nomi, were reeling from the disastrous events that unfolded in the aforementione nove.

Unsurprisingly, they ended up joining together to fight for the freedom of all of the omen of their country and wanted to change the ingrained sexist ideologies surrounding women.I liked the way Serina 's character went from strength to strength.

She spent more than half of book just traveling with Malachi- first in a boat toward the prison, then back to the city- and sharing her feelings or whatever.

Eventually, Serina organized a revolution, lead an army, killed a bunch of enemies, took over a boat etc.

And his is what happened in the end:: ( view spoiler) [ Nomi became the freaking queen -.- I know, she originally wanted Serina to rule, but she refused saying " Nomi was the one who knew how to ead and always trie to tart a revolution " Bullshit.

he only advantage Nomi actually had is that he " proper king " Malachi likes her so if she became " his " queen it would be asier for people to accept instead of just getting Serina as the only ruler.

Serina did say she did n't d the throne and just anted to lead her " army of woman " but still ... I would 've been happy if they hose a 3rd person, as long as Nomi was n't queen -.- ( hide spoiler) ] [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]>

- Less tension- The hookups were pretty mediocre- Zero history lessons/world building- It was all just a little too easyI enjoyed it, but ostly because I love the themes of th tal.

The sexis is strong in his one and the ladies are facing some heavy duty oppression, which means it resonates with real world issues.

Do n't make me wrong- I oved the badass women fighting back.

But I say the book wrapped things up a little too quickly and neatly.

But no, the author somehow made me care about every random side character she introduced.

•Speaking of the main characters, their sisterly relationship was unparalleled.

Sometimes when I writ about a sister relationship, it 's somethin of a Katniss-Prim dynamic: One is the protagonis, and she generally needs to ave the other in some way.

•And while we 're talking about love and protection, every single one of the romantic partnerships in this book saw each other as equals.

Actually the side characters' relationships were viewed in this very equal and refreshing light.

Thi level of respect that the couples treated each other with was fabulous, and every single book should strive to portray relationships in this manner.

I admittedl did not loo like someon was safe during the hole ook.

It as perfect high-octane finale to a eally great series.
