Summary!

They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre—the brutal attack on a once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors Jonah possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of the mainline guilds. At seventeen, Jonah has become the deadliest assassin in Nightshade, a network that hunts the undead. Emma Claire Greenwood grew up worlds away, raised by a grandfather who taught her music rather than magic. An unschooled wild child, she runs the streets until the night she finds her grandfather dying, gripping a note warning Emma that she might be in danger. The clue he leaves behind leads Emma into Jonah’s life—and a shared legacy of secrets and lingering questions. Was Thorn Hill really a peaceful commune? Or was it, as the Wizard Guild claims, a hotbed of underguild terrorists? The Wizards’ suspicions grow when members of the mainline guilds start turning up dead. They blame Nightshade, bringing tensions between the groups to a head. Racing against time, Jonah and Emma work to uncover the truth about Thorn Hill, amid increasing concern that whoever planned the Thorn Hill Massacre might strike again.

My Brief Thoughts

This was a great continuation of this world and this series. I really grew to love these two new characters and also the tie backs to the other main characters in this series. I love books that have a strong mystery and this book def caught my attention. I normally have issues with Johan type of powers but I loved how Cinda crafted him and really loved both main characters. I loved how this story and “Mutan” character storyline and really loved it. I def want to read the last book in this series super soon. This book was super easy to fly thought and I really enjoy it.

My Extended Thoughts:

Characters: I really loved these new characters that we met in this book. I was hesitant to start this series because I loved the previous characters in this series.But I really grew to love these characters a lot. I not only enjoyed the main characters but also loved the tie back and we got to see of the past characters. I think it had a great balance between older characters and new ones. The characters were so well crafted and I really need to complete this series soon!

Pacing: This book was super fast pace. I loved the pacing of this novel and it really did have a great balance of starting a new adventure in this story and world building and then action!

World building: I loved the nitty gritty world that is crafted. I really loved the cont. of this world and found it to be super rich and also really easy to understand.

Later book lovers!

Challenge: Beat the backlist and China re-read

Summary!

The covenant that was meant to keep the wizard wars at bay has been stolen, and Trinity must prepare for attack. Everyone is doing their part — Seph is monitoring the Weirwalls; Jack and Ellen are training their ghostly army; even Anaweir Will and Fitch are setting booby traps around the town’s perimeter. But to Jason Haley, it seems like everyone wants to keep him out of the action. He may not be the most powerful wizard in Trinity, but he’s prepared to fight for his friends.

My Brief Thoughts:

I really loved this conclusion a lot! I loved how this book did not really have one lead character but focused on all the characters we meet in the previous two books. It was such a wild end and some of the parts really tugged at my emotions. I really had no memory of this book because I read it so long ago. I think Seph is still my favorite character. But i really loved all the female characters that were in this series and how many different types of girls we had. I also loved the path of Nick in these books. I am so intrigued to see what the rest of this series brings!!

My Extended Thoughts:

Characters: I really loved all of these characters. I liked how this book did not have “one” main character but that we followed many of the characters that we met in book one and two. I thought the characters even thought there were so many were given enough time to build and complete their arcs. I also though all the characters were so well drawn and super compelling to read about.

World Building: I said this in my other reviews that this is such a good foundational fantasy series. Though out all the books in this series the world building was super solid. Def read them in order just trust me!

Plot:  I enjoyed the plot and most of the twists were shocking and I did not see them coming. I do think this book did have “slow” moments but then this was originally the last book in a series. It was later extended the series but I think those down -times really filled out the world and made it satisfying conclusion.

Summary!

Before he knew about the Roses, 16-year-old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high-schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before.

My Thoughts:

This is re-read for me apart of read along I am doing. It felt like returning home to the series as dived in. I have also loved this author writing style but i also really focused on how she crafted here female characters and even thought they are not a POV character I really noticed how strong it was. This is a great starting off fantasy series for somebody and the writing is easy to breeze through. I really loved how much was accomplished in this book and it felt like complete story. I am so excited to read book 2 next month!
