    Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ The Darkest Magic was everything I wanted, expected, and more in a sequel. Morgan Rhodes can do no wrong in my eyes. The Falling Kingdoms series kept getting better and better with each installment and she's doing the exact same thing with the ABOSAT series.The story does start off a little slow, which is no surprise to me since The Darkest Magic starts off with Maddox's POV. He's probably the least exciting and the most i...

    I really like the insights this series gives into the Falling Kingdoms backstory, but I don't really care about any of the characters. To me, they are just plot devices to tell the origin story of this world and not much else. They pale in comparison to my Falling Kingdoms babies, and this makes me way less invested in this series's story.

    2.5 stars. I almost called it a DNF so many times but had to finish it out of some weird loyalty to the Falling Kingdoms series.I absolutely LOVE the Falling Kingdoms books, but still am not sold on this spinoff series. I gave the first book the benefit of the doubt because it had a lot of cool elements (like the secret society) and seemed to be setting up an interesting series. I really enjoy how Morgan Rhodes writes, so the writing itself was t...

    WrensReads Review:I’m not sure where to start with this review. I am really liking the dive we took with the gods and their …sibling gods/relationships with other gods? And the fact that we learned their history and how certain gods were banished and how it is affecting everything around them.What I didn’t like is the lack of character growth. The characters are pretty firm in their standing and didn’t really mature at all or make smarter...

    “Memories of one's past are tainted. There are no truths to be found in them.” Just a little disclaimer: I'm going to mark spoilers BUT I won't be marking ship spoilers so if you don't want to know the ships, don't keep reading.I LOVED THIS BOOKS. Honestly, anything Falling Kingdoms related is amazing and I cannot devour these books quick enough. These books are honestly just incredible and I cannot wait to see what happens next. I'm constant...

    I skimmed this. I skimmed this hard. I just couldn't get into it. It was different from the authors other works for me and I felt disconnected from the characters and storyline. To be completely transparent, I was bored. I don't know if I'll read book three, probably will. I may even try this again another time because from 40%-100% I have absolutely no clue what even happened in this book.

    Eu estou chegando à conclusão que primeiros livros não são o forte de algumas autoras. Que o segundo livro é quando elas soltam os dedos e realmente atingem alturas inimagináveis. No caso da Morgan Rhodes foi assim em A Queda dos Reinos e agora em Spirit and Thieves.Ainda mais que no primeiro livro, nesse ela conseguiu conectar muito melhor o mundo de Mytica e o mundo real. Os elementos da história começaram a fazer mais sentido e estou c...
