Hello readers. Today I bring you a review of the book UM REINO DE CARNE E FOGO, the second book in the blood and ashes series, which I received in partnership with the publisher Galera Record and read by my collaborator, Helena.
Knowing that her whole life is one big lie isn’t making it easy for Poppy.
Now, she finds herself trapped in an engagement to her greatest enemy, the Prince of Darkness, as she too now bears the hatred of the people of Atlantia.
Poppy knows she can’t trust Casteel, let alone trust his seductive ways and words. He’s dangerous, but she knows being engaged to him is the only way to discover her brother’s whereabouts and understand if he’s turned Ascended.
A marriage of convenience is the only solution, and as much as they try to deny it, Poppy and Casteel know they’ll have to pretend very well if they’re to convince two broken kingdoms that they’re really together.
However, the risk of this lie is to end up falling in love again and losing what little is left.
It’s impossible for you to start it and not become so obsessed that you don’t want to do anything but read its almost seven hundred pages.
The world created by the author was spectacular, and I had already spoken about it in the review of the first book, but I confess that I was not prepared for everything that would happen in this story.
The story is full of plot twists. Seriously, when I say stuffed, I mean stuffed. Just when you believe you know something, the author manages to insert a twist so big, it leaves the reader utterly shocked.
It gets to be complicated to put into words everything that this story causes when reading it. It is extremely immersive and exciting.
Jennifer’s writing is surreal. He manages to tie the story very well and makes us understand everything that happens, as well as why certain attitudes that the characters take.
Poppy is a young lady like few others. What a magnificent development of her personality and way of being. I totally understood her fears and the difficulty she has in not letting herself be involved in Casteel, no matter how complicated it is to trust.
The interactions between Poppy and Casteel are surreal in their immersion. They have such, but such intense chemistry that it seems like she can get out of the book and contaminate you.
The new characters are great, the descriptions of everything that happens are also excellent and I don’t have an “A” for negative to say about this story.
So, if you are a fan of fantasy, I only ask that you read this book. And only then will you understand what an anthem this story is.
