This book was even better than the first! Iris and Roman will always hold a special place in my heart and I was so happy to see each character through their own ending. While everything might not have been “happy” by definition, I felt the story ended with a neat little bow for each in its own way.

My first Romantasy duology, but it certainly won‘t be my last read of this new to me genre.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished. I enjoyed it just as much as the first one in this duology.

This duology is a must-read.
I love that you get to learn more about Dacre and his underworld in this one.
It was interesting the whole time, and it had a satisfying ending.

1. Tagged. I loved the first one, may have a slight crush on Roman.
2. No. I‘m trying not to buy any new books as I have far too many at home I get through.

TheSpineView Kudos on your shelf control. Thanks for playing 3w

I did love the typewriter thing w this duology (me trying not to spoil anything), and I liked how that dynamic changed in the second book. But I just otherwise found this book terribly boring and listened to the last 20% on 1.75x speed... not my fav, but I know that some of y'all loved this story, and I could see why that is as well. It just wasn't a fav for me. Full disclosure, I've been in a bit of a reading slump..

I enjoyed book 2 but didn‘t feel as invested as i did reading book 1. A satisfying conclusion to this duology.
Book 8 of 2024

The first half was real slow but then it picked up. I liked it, but think I would have liked it better on audio.

There was never any doubt in her mind, even after all these dust-streaked mortal years, that Dacre would one day come for her.

Finally starting this one.

I liked, for the most part, but didn‘t love this sequel to Divine Rivals (which I thought was excellent). In the aftermath of a devastating attack, Iris & Roman find themselves separated & on different sides. As war rages, things will get much more complicated before there‘s a chance—if there is one—things will get better. I found myself often skimming as the story lacked the emotional depth I was hoping for. A low pick. #UnpopularOpinion? Maybe.

I may be doing 2 book brackets this year, because they‘re both set up a bit differently and I‘m interested to see how each books goes against each other!

I‘m not sure if I‘ll have the same wild cards or favorite books of the month. Though this month I do!

Read4life I‘m doing the same! I couldn‘t resist seeing how the different set ups affect my outcomes. 3mo
peanutnine @Read4life me too! I'm super curious if they'll turn out differently 3mo

Not feeling well today so I stayed home. Can‘t look at a screen of any kind without making my headache worse, so I‘m sitting in a semi dark room reading instead. My sweet fur baby Pixel is keeping my company.

While I do feel like Rebecca Ross uses the same 3 themes in all of her more recent works, this is a really nice book! The ending feels especially well-conceived, and that final “little flower” does a lot of heavy, emotional lifting. The duology is ultimately a bit reminiscent of “Lovely War” but still very much its own animal.

Started this one on this cold Sunday morning. In 2024, I decided to limit the reading challenges I attempt (I usually try way too many). This feels so weird because I can read whatever I want whenever I want. As an indecisive person, I‘m realizing that the challenges really helped my reading life!

BarbaraBB That is so weird, right? I need those challenges to choose my books, without them I feel at loss among my shelves 😀 3mo
AmyG Same here. 3mo
Ruthiella I definitely appreciate challenges for guiding what to read next! 👍 3mo
Deblovestoread Sometimes I can feel overwhelmed by all the challenges but they also help keep me reading. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo

What a great conclusion to this intense love story that started with book #1 DIVINE RIVALS!
The first book was all about the beautiful love story between Iris and Roman and, I admit, I wanted more of that. This one was more about the war brought on by the evil, childish god throwing a temper tantrum destroying the world and killing people along the way.
I didn‘t LOVE this one as much but it was still a great read that kept me reading!

What a beautiful conclusion to the story! I loved the first book and it picks up right after Divine Rivals ends. The gods, Dacre and Enva, are a much bigger part of this one and I loved getting to. know their characters. It‘s war and there are gutting losses, but the story unfolds beautifully and did not disappoint. I loved the way the author connected Roman and Iris through the distance. Each one showed such strength and courage.

Another beautiful novel by Rebecca Ross. In this sequel to Divine Rivals war has finally come to Oath. The magic in her stories always feels realistic and adds to the story instead of distracting from it. Her stories are tragic, beautiful and the endings are always satisfying. Loved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely adored “Divine Rivals” and eagerly awaited the sequel and conclusion of this series, “Ruthless Vows”. I unfortunately can‘t give “Ruthless Vows” the five stars that I gave its predecessor as the focus of this book was more on the war itself and I had mixed feelings about the ending. I loved Roman‘s and Iris‘ journey, and I will miss the characters and the beautiful world that Rebecca Ross had written.

“Sometimes,” Iris began, “I don‘t think we know what we‘re made of until the worst moment possible happens. Then we must decide who we truly are and what is most important to us. I think we‘re often surprised by what we become.”

Roman and Iris had to fight against Dacre's advances and his planned revenge on Enva. Told in alternating POVs the author takes us on a fantastic journey. I devoured this book and adored the story.

Family is in town, but I‘ve managed to sneak in a few minutes to start reading the follow-up to Divine Rivals. Who else needs Iris to find Roman ASAP???? #currentlyreading #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #books #bookworm #bibliophile

At last—long after Vols. 3-5 arrived—Vol. 2 is here!!! Excited to continue reading Spy x Family BUT I‘m perhaps even more excited to read the tagged book…just as soon as I finish the Rebecca Ross book I‘m currently reading. It goes without saying, #Bookmail is the best mail.

I finished up my ARC of Ruthless Vows late last night. It was lovely, a very satisfying ending to this duology. Rebecca Ross has such a beautiful way with words. The story jumps in 2 weeks after the ending of Divine Rivals. There's sadness in this story, but the characters never despair. They count on each other.

I was able to order the Owlcrate edition of this book as I was reading it. Glad I will have such a beautiful edition.

I think I lucked out in getting this ARC. It was up on Edelweiss only very briefly. I guess they didn't mean to put it up there. I was at the right place at the right time. I'm reading it now.😁
