Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion, Book 2)
Lost Crow Conspiracy (Blood Rose Rebellion, Book 2) | Rosalyn Eves
8 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
Lost Crow Conspiracy is the dark, dazzling, action-packed sequel to Anna Arden's explosive societal debut in YA fantasy trilogy Blood Rose Rebellion. Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding--and Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more. Anna Arden did not know breaking the Binding would break the world. Anna thought the Praetheria were on her side, content and grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas's blood sacrifice to the disarm the spell would bring peace, equality, justice. She thought her future looked like a society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor. But with the Monarchy breathing down her neck and the Praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun. As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.

Thank you @TheLibrarian for hosting such an awesome giveaway! And congrats!
I'm having a hard time remembering everything I've read this year, but I'm fairly certain The Blood Rose Rebellion and Lost Crow Conspiracy were my favorites. Can't wait for the third book to come out next spring!

Overall, I loved this book. There were bits I couldn't stand (like Anna's boy craziness over someone I thought was terribly boring). But otherwise I felt it was well written. I liked that the author brought in so many different kinds of Fey. I liked that it expanded my vocabulary. I felt at home at the places Anna felt at home and I could feel the wind on my face as she crossed the plains. I look forward to the last book.

Being the slow reader that I am, I'm trying to finish this before September. That way, I have a clean slate for the #bookaweekchallenge Less than 200 pages to go!

SMayWrites @Eggs Thank you! 😊 11mo
jfalkens I'm in Michigan too! Where in Michigan are you? 11mo
SMayWrites @jfalkens Yay! A fellow Michigander! I'm at the Tip of the Mitt! Near Cheboygan 😄 Where are you? 11mo
jfalkens @SMayWrites I'm in Otsego, about 20 mins north of Kalamazoo. I grew up in the U.P, about 20-30 mins from Marquette. My husband and I moved down here 7 years ago, it's where my in-law's live and my husband grew up. 11mo
SMayWrites @jfalkens Nice! I go to Marquette as often as I can make it. Love that town and the keweenaw! How do you like living downstate? 11mo
jfalkens @SMayWrites I do, I hated the winter's in the U.P., too cold for me lol I've only gone back 5 times since moving, my parents come down twice a year usually. My sister's been down every time the first few years but after she got married, she's been down once. 11mo
SMayWrites @jfalkens That's true! The winters are a bit....extreme lol. My husband and I moved back to the north to be by all of our family. His sisters married into the airforce and are scattered in different countries now. He wanted to be close to home. I'm not fond of all the snow shoveling but the summers are stupendous. 11mo
jfalkens @SMayWrites You don't get much summer in the U.P. I remember one year having to wear our snow gear while riding bikes during summer vacation! I don't think we got any snow but it was freezing. The summer temps were around low to mid 70's but the couple days it got to 80! Lol I enjoy the seasons more so down here, winter still isn't a favorite, I hate shoveling too. The last time we visited the U.P. was after our nephew was born and home(premie) 11mo
jfalkens @SMayWrites and that was end of February. We left our house and the day before I was wearing flip flops! We got out to get gas in St. Ignes, dressed for cold, and about died when the wind picked up. I'd forgotten how cold the lake effect wind is, I remembered it was bitterly cold but forgot just how cold that is! 11mo

Mehso-so

This fantasy series' setting of Hungary and Austria in the mid-1800s fascinates and the world building is superb. Anna is a frustrating character, though, making very impulsive decisions and sometimes feeling a little pulled along by the plot. A second pov is introduced, and the back and forth kept the deliberate pace moving, though the timeline was confusing. It could be my own slow reading, but I didn't enjoy it quite so much as the first book.

Nothing too fancy planned for May and nothing set in stone - these are books I'm currently reading, have out from the library and my book club read.

Not a bad cover, but Blood Rose Conspiracy cover was better.

If I didn't know this is the sequel to Blood Rose Rebellion, I would have thought it belonged to the Crowns Game series. #coverlove #YAedition
