    I’m not sure what I was expecting from this book, but overall I think I got what I wanted. Both books put together from a single story with a pretty straightforward goal and a limited amount of plot twists therefore at some points I felt like they could’ve been combined to form one book, but the story being separated added the mystery as to where Carys went so in the end I agree with these books being a duology. The beginning of this book fel...

    Eden Conqueredby Joelle Charbonneau 4 out of 5 Stars!The second and final installment of 'Dividing Eden' duology. I absolutely adored the first book that it became one of my favourite books of all time, unfortunately the second book was a bit disappointing but I liked it, just not as much as the first.The story is told in third person and alternates between the royal twins Princess Carys and King Andreus.So, as much as I love seeing closeness and...

    Warning: Major Spoilers AheadAfter everything he had done, and everything they had learned, she was still acting as his shield.Eden Conquered is probably the most fast-paced book I've read this year. I was in a mild reading slump, but this book was still a pleasure to read. I loved Dividing Eden, so I was super excited to know the conclusion to Carys and Andreus compelling story.Initially, I absolutely hated Andreus. After all, he fell for the wi...

    This was slightly better than the first book but it's still just not interesting for me.

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 2.5*I was super excited about this sequel, as I found myself a fan of Dividing Eden last year. This one fell a bit short for me, but I was still glad I read it. Let's break it down, shall we? What I Liked: Carys is awesome, and I kind of wanted to read all the chapters from her POV. Andreus just irked me- and I am well aware that he ...

    *Source* Edelweiss/Publisher*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy*Rating* 3.5-4*Thoughts*Eden Conquered is final installment of author Joelle Charbonneau's Dividing Eden duology.

    Eden Conquered is the sequel to Dividing Eden and the final book in the duology. Similarly to the first book, the book is told through the viewpoints of the two royal twins - Andreus and Carys. While I feel that overall, the writing of this book was stronger than the previous book, a big problem I had with this book was the pacing. It started out well enough, but about 1/3 of the way into the book, the book just starts doing twist after twist, th...

    FINALLY OMGI read the first book in this duology last year in October and I didn’t really love it at fist. Mainly I was just consumed by my anger and hate for Andreus ( that little b****), but I just couldn’t stop thinking about it and knowing that I had to wait almost an entire year for the next book killed me a bit. Now finally the second book is here and I pretty much devoured it. I loved it and I'm kinda sad that I already finished it. I ...

    2.5 This might be my own fault since I didn’t remember much from the first book (which I really enjoyed and I think rated 4 stars). I liked the relationship between Carys and her brother, but I felt that the resolution of the conflict happened too easily. It reminded me of the ending of the Tunnels series - with loads of deus ex machina. I did like that this was a duology as opposed to a long, drawn out series like Throne of Glass.

    Eden Conquered is the conclusion to the Dividing Eden duology. These books are YA fantasy. You must have read Dividing Eden before reading this book.This book picks up right where the first book left off. Eden Conquered has two 3rd person narrators (Andreus and Carys).Both POVs were interesting. And the story kept my interest. I enjoyed learning about Carys' powers and I liked seeing Andreus try to figure things out. However, I would have liked m...

    3.5 stars, rounded up for now. I'm really on the fence about rating both books. It's not Charbonneau's best writing (I've loved her other books). The pacing felt really slow in this one. And the story bears some similarities to a couple of other popular fantasy books.

    I liked parts of this book better than the first. I wanted to “see” more of Carys’s power - like wind-riding power. I liked the growth of Andreus and the plot twists. Definitely recommend to my middle schoolers.

    Exceptionally well written. Wasn't expecting the emotions this one drew at the end. I really enjoyed it.

    I absolutely loved that this book wrapped up many ends but come on....the ending?!?!?!!SPOILERS AHEAD*****I love that many of the characters were redeemed and it was all wrapped up with a bow as it should have been, like all good duologies that DO NOT need to be a trilogy should be....BUT the way it was left, made me WANT a trilogy...but without the wait. What I wanted was an Epilogue at the end that told me that Erik had made it. YESSSSS, I know...

Unknown assailants and spies lurking in the shadows of the court. Who to trust? And who will save Eden?This sequel to Dividing Eden in ways did it justice, but likewise could have been better.

    In the aftermath of Andreus' betrayal, Carys is in the woods with 1 person she trusts, 1 person she wants to trust, and Garrett who claims he doesn't want the throne. This journey through the woods part wasn't too bad- (I may or may not have been shipping Carys & Errik for the majority of this part). BUT we still have Andreus POV. Andreus still believes he was perfectly in the right to leave his beloved sister TO DIE. He starts having doubts arou...

    4.2/5Eden Conquered was a thrilling, heart-stopping conclusion to the duology and I just couldn't put it down! The plot was exciting and it got really intense towards the end, but the pace was inconsistent throughout the book especially during the chapters told in Andreus's point of view. My love for Carys Has not wavered, and it is in this book that we see her strength and growth. Unseen twists did take me by surprise, though I'm not sure why I ...

    ** I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. **I read and reviewed the first book in this series, Dividing Eden and while I didn't love it I was excited for this, the sequel and final book in the duology. While in a lot of aspects there was improvement (e.g. the world building became clearer and easier to understand) I was still left somewhat disappointed with this series. I felt like the...

    4/5*Full review here: https://www.allcharacterswanted.com/b...I fell in love with Carys in Dividing Eden, so I was happy hat we continued to see her strength and growth in this book. Although going through an agonizing withdrawal, Carys is a constant source of strength as she and her companions search for a way to win back control of Eden. I was also really happy to see Andreas become less selfish and more aware of how he was manipulated in the p...

    I really think I should have read those novellas. Not that I think any huge story pieces are missing from this book, but I feel like they probably fleshed out some things and explained others. I still liked the story and the characters, but I feel like there was more to be explored that probably was in the novellas.Again, for me one of the more refreshing parts of the book was how little emphasis there was on the romance. It was definitely there ...

    Pros:-Andreus’ character was so much better than the previous book. In Dividing Eden, Andreus was so flippant and easily manipulated, and his character has definitely developed. Andreus is also so loyal and kind compared to Carys.-Max is so cute and actually plays a role-Graylem plays a big role as well which is cool. He’s the fiercely loyal character that has a story. I also like how he’s brave despite looking very childish.-Larkin actuall...

    This was really really good. Eden Conquered by Joelle Charbonneau was amazing. This is the second and conclusion to Dividing Eden. And it was even better. In this book was get to discover more about the seers and the outside world. In the first book, it was focused on Garden City, and the Kingdom of Eden. But in this book, we get to discover beyond Eden in. the perspective of Carys. At first it was a little difficult to get into the story because...

    Eden Conquered...Wow!I loved this sequel. It took me a little bit to get through the first few pages, just because I was trying to remember character names and who did what. But Carys was the perfect heroine for this story! I loved her struggle with her power and how all she wanted to do was use it for good. Her strength was admirable and I loved all the portions from her point of view!Andreus and his relationship with Imogen reminded me a tiny b...
