    Full spoiler free review:Second books in a series can be pretty hit or miss. I’m happy to say that this was a gem among seconds! I enjoyed Reign the Earth, but a few elements (hehe pun intended) fell a little flat for me. The characters definitely had my heart, and at first, I was a little confused when I realized the second book is written from the POV of a different female lead. My confusion quickly turned to love, as Aspasia is one of my new...

    Received at BookCon and binge read the day after. 4.5 starsGUYS THIS BOOK DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! Awesome magic system? Check. Amazing characters + growth? Check ANGSTY!? Check. :) I ADORED it and I'm actually disappointing that I've read it because now I have to wait until 2020 for the sequel.

    4.5 Stars rounded upThese books are just so well written. Filled with wonderfully complex characters, emotions and a building brutal war that will span nations. I was a little sad at first to miss Shalia, as this is a companion/sequel. But I quickly grew to love this new narrator and how she fits into the overall series. IMPRISON THE SKY introduces new narrator Aspasia (she and her floating ship were briefly introduced in the last book), a powerf...

    I didn't have time to re-read Reign the Earth before I read this one, and having just finished, I am a bit indecisive as to whether that is a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe both. It seemed problematic when I started Imprison the Sky because I felt like I remembered nothing and had no idea who anyone was. Then as I got into the story (it sucked me in completely regardless!) I remembered bits from RtE and realized I would have mostly been clueles...

    This book is SO GOOD! I loved it even more than I loved Reign the Earth. The characters in this one are so layered and well-developed and the pacing is excellent! More people need to read this series because it's AMAZING and ORIGINAL and I LOVE IT!

    I missed my train stop reading this book. If you liked Children of Blood and Bone, you should read this series.

    This book came to me through Book Expo. Solid writing, like the first story. This story introduces new character with a new narrator with different goals and challenges elsewhere in Orbis Elementa. A terrific sequel to Reign The Earth. Would recommend.

    @kidlitexchange #partner⚓Thanks to the @kidlitexchangeprogram- for a review copy of this book. All opinions are my own. At first I was a bit confused because the POV is from a different character than the first book. My fault because I didn't read the synopsis I just knew it was the second book to The Elementae series and I wanted to read it. But let me tell you I was not disappointed! The characters are amazing they are written with so much em...
