  • Anissa
    A perfect ending to one of my favourite duologies!

    3.5 starsAfter that epic betrayal and high emotion roller coaster in book 1, I expected an equally epic reconciliation between Kamzin & River. I was left dissapointed in that aspect. I wanted anger, so much anger and hurt. And heart. I wanted heartfelt words and high emotions, but all we really got from River was some vague amusement and interest. I just needed more for him after the glimpses of compassion and fear we saw in book 1. The love stor...

    4.5★ “the best explorers make the night a little brighter.” i almost gave this a full 5 stars, but then i realized that we didn’t get some answers that i felt could have added to the story. while the story did wrap up beautifully, there’s still a few burning questions that i have that will likely never get answered because this is just a duology. however, i will forever cherish this story and these characters for the rest of my life....

    It was just an okay read for me, the story and magic system actually pretty good and unique BUT the characters were just feel bland and boring, i dont care if anything happen to any of them i dont even like the romance, as someone who is a major character driven reader i cant enjoy books if i dont conected with the characters, thats what happened on this book for me Tem the only character i like on book 2 also not doing much here, The ending batt...

    Definitely River and Tem are my favorite characters in this series. I found that this second book irritated me at some points and I had a harder time getting through this one.
  • Rachel E. Carter
    Sequel did not disappoint. I still have some questions (Azar-at and Ragtooth mainly) but that's okay because for the most part it wrapped up perfectly. Also Ragtooth is officially my favorite familiar/token animal companion in a YA novel

    "Choosing to lock yourself up in a life that doesn't suit you is its own sort of death." 4,5 stars.BOOK NUMBER 100 OF THIS YEAR AND WHAT A BOOK IT WAS!! I absolutely adore this book and this duology will definitely make it to my favourites list, but I can hear you asking why I gave it 4,5 stars and not 5. Well that's mainly because of the ending, it did not really feel rushed, but I really would have enjoyed a longer ending and am I the only one...
  • Laura
    Soo good. Loved the descriptions and the atmosphere. And River, of course.
  • Lauren
    I have not loved a book and a series this much since 2014 when I first read Cassndara Clare/The Mortal Instruments.All the Wandering Light was by far so incredible and better than Even the Darkest Stars. I adored ETDS, but issues I had in that book were fixed in this one. One example is the traveling in the first book, at times, could be really boring where as every second of travel in ATWL were so so enjoyable to read. It was great seeing the gr...
  • Emily
    LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!God this book was so amazing and better than the first one! All the flaws I found with the first book were corrected in this sequel and I love seeing the growth Heather Fawcett had as an author. The writing was great, the characters were all flushed out, and I have no unanswered questions. River and Kamzin are two of my favorite literary characters and I am so sad to see their journey come to an end...but I do believe that the...
  • Ingrid Hermans
    I really disliked this book. I couldn’t care any less for the characters, I disliked the slow af pace of the book and I thought it was all very boring. Sorry not sorry #unpopularopinion- I did like book 1.
  • Amber ~ The Reading Addict
    Okay, so I liked this one in many ways. I love the mystery surrounding witches and River, but I missed some of the adventure captured in the first book. Still, a worthwhile sequel! Check it out if you liked booked number one.
  • Narayan Saka
    really amazing books! it has really great plots, not so fast but also not so dull either. each character is well told and has important role in the story. it has unpredictable endings, when i read the book, i thought i know how the ending would be (like most book with the same topic) at first, but somehow, the more chapter i read the more i didn't know how it would end. and that's rare for me these days. what i really love about this sequal is ho...
  • Femke
    4,5 stars! I really, really liked this book! I think the first one was just a little bit better, because it set up a really original world with some exceptional worldbuilding, by introducing us to some very interesting characters and also exploring the supernatural in a very good way. This book picks up immediately after the events in book 1, and I could not be happier about it. I really liked all the revelations we get in this book and I loved t...

    *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*Thoughts*All the Wandering Light is the second and final installment in author Heather Fawcett's Even the Darkest Stars duology. Set in a fictional kingdom reminiscent of Nepal, All the Wandering Light is inspired by both Eastern mythology and the early climbers of Mount Everest. The lush mountain setting is full of dangerous cliffs, sheer rock faces, ice and snow—the perfect backdrop for...

    4.25 stars"Choosing to lock yourself up in a life that doesn't suit you is its own sort of death."All The Wandering Light was the final book in this starry duology and it was such a great conclusion! If Even The Darkest Stars focused more on the journey through the mountains and the wintery atmosphere, with some revelentions only towards the end, in this second book we have more action which will keep you engaged! I really liked how the author wr...
  • Jamie Coudeville
    The book started off slow. It didn't help that it had been over a year since I'd read the first one making it a bit difficult for me to remember the details of what happened. But about halfway through the pace started to pick up. Lusha still annoyed me, though. But I like how everything unfolded and how it ended.
  • Manon
    Around 150 pages in, I was afraid the book would lack some suspension, but right after that, it picked up pace, right until the end! This book was phenomenal!
  • Regitze
    What an ending to this story. I didn’t get as much mountain exploring as I would have liked but the battle against the witches was really nice and twisted and surprising in its solution. I really enjoyed this duology!
  • Nikolae Keaveney
    I read this book during a very hard period of time in my life, both academically and personally. I loved delving back into this fantastical world after a long day of studying and worrying and just to...disappear from the real world. This book has the pull and magnetism of a fairytale, yet full of action and intrigue like a fantasy. I'm so grateful for this series, for Kamzin, for River, and for this world that I can now call a home because I'm so...
  • Skye ~ Court of Binge Reading
    Attention everyone: please stop sleeping on this duology. This duology deserves so much more love and recognition. I picked up the first book in this duology, Even the Darkest Stars, because I had seen a few bookstagrammers talking about it. They talked about the gorgeous writing, out-of-this-world world-building, and the incredibly unique premise. And you know what, they were right. This duology is unlike any other I have come across in the YA g...
  • Nikki
    I really enjoyed this sequel to the fantastic Even the Darkest Stars. We didn’t completely lose the questing, which is always good, and we got a lot more on the things I was keen to know about from book 1. It’s pretty action packed, and we get to more about the witches and the emperor and his court. I also really loved the addition of the star, and Kamzin protecting it. I did find that there is still a lot left hanging though. There’s so mu...
  • noverantale
    Ever since I finished reading Even the Darkest Stars I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next in the series. I spent so much time predicting what might happen in All the Wandering Light, and all my theories were wrong. This book surprised me so much in so many amazing ways and I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible sequel. It was absolute perfection.Finishing the book was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do because I desperately d...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐If you like books with Dragons 🐉, familiars 🦊, witches 🧙🏼♀ and ghosts 👻 this is for you!I don’t think these books get enough hype. They are well written, have a strong story, interesting characters, and AMAZING plot twists. Even in All the Wandering Light I was surprised by the twist, didn’t see them coming!This is a slow burn romance, so if you’re into that you will like it too.Here is to hoping there’s a ...

    This was great, holy crap. This duology was a ride let me tell you.I love Kamzin and River. Separately and together- they were like magic (pun totally intended). Heather Fawcett managed to end the series beautifully! It wasn't too fast paced or too slow. There was a perfect amount of everything! I loved it!
  • Stephie
    I'd give it 4.5 stars, I really, really liked it but I think the first book was the tiniest bit better. I love that all the different arcs from book 1 were picked up again and that we got different povs as well. I found the book to be equally captivating and intriguing and it was really hard to put it down. Great ending for a fantastic duology. And also, Ragtooth. Yay! ❤
  • Franci
    How come that this was so much better than the first book? It‘s almost as if it was written by a different person...It was unexpectedly good!
  • Anna
    This was an absolutely wonderful sequel and I really hope she continues with books!!!
