    Without giving anything away, this book picks up exactly where it left off (which makes sense since Laurie Forest told me that most of the two books had originally been one long one), and immediately sweeps you up into extreeme FEELINGS of big important STUFF! I want to say everything,...

    I loved this book. I found it so drenched with fantasy and I just hated having to put the book up for the night when reading it. I truly loved this one more than the first and I believe I gave the first book a four or five star rating. Readers really learn way more about the characters...

    Wow, I?m speechless. I?m trying to gather my thoughts but I can?t seem to coherently grasp them. I?ve been left emotionally wrecked and exhausted. All I know is that this was the perfect sequel to The Black Witch Chronicles. And Yvan, yes he was everything I expected and so muc...

    See this review and more like it on Bookbastion.net! ________ You might remember that last year I championed really hard for a little young adult debut fantasy book calledThe Black Witch,which was being unfairly lampooned by some overzealous keyboard warriors on Twitter who had...

    This sequel to The Black Witch, which caused a massive explosion of outrage on Twitter and Goodreads when it was published last year (IMO the accusations of various types of phobias/prejudice/White Saviorism/etc. leveled against it were mostly unfair and not based on a true read of the...

    ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS I didn't like Elloren that much in the first book but the story was great so I was definitely looking forward to reading The Iron Flower. And WOW. I'm glad I decided to continue on with this series! Here's a summarized/short review for now: PLOT...

    I finished this book in less than 24 hours. I couldn?t put it down. I cried, I screamed at certain parts, I was happy to see some of my thought of what might happen in the next book come true. The worst part of this experience is the fact that none of my friends have read it yet so I...

    Hoooooo boy. Where do I start? First, let me say that this is one of the most amazing and relevant series to ever grace your bookshelves EVER. Forest does not back down from showing how religion and society and cultures create a divide. But with our group of loving misfits, we also see...

    I'm not going to share any spoilers, but this book had a lot more action than the first one, and it was an emotional roller coaster all the way through. Just like the first book, it leaves you anxiously waiting for the next book to come out! ...

    I really enjoyed this sequel to The Black Witch, the controversial YA fantasy book that explores racism by way of a world filled with many races such as Urisks, Lupines, Kelts, Fae, Icarals, etc. who all have their own prejudices against each other. In the first book, we saw a young g...

    I received an e-arc copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. It feels wrong not address what happened to the first book in this series. The Black Witch (TBW) got a lot of undeserved negative feedback, almost unanimously coming from people who did not take t...

    This was a very entertaining, creative, and fantastical sequel to "The Black Witch". In this follow-up, I continued to really enjoy the unique world that was created. Laurie Forest truly created a unique world of her own and the world-building was exemplary in that all of the backgr...

    2/5 stars DNF at 33 % So not the rating I thought I was going to be giving this book, I was pretty sure that this would have been a 5 star, boy was I wrong. Gorgeous cover though, so that's something. To start off, I'm not giving this 1 star, despite having dnf-d it, because I ...
