Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Bone Witch, the thrilling sequel to The Never Tilting World spins elemental magic, fierce sisterhood, and vast, incredible landscapes into a YA fantasy epic perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir. 

After a treacherous journey and a life-shattering introduction to a twin neither knew she had, sisters Haidee and Odessa expected to emerge from the Great Abyss to a world set right. But though the planet is turning once again, the creatures of the abyss refuse to rest without another goddess’s sacrifice. 

To break the cycle, Haidee and Odessa need answers that lie beyond the seven gates of the underworld, within the Cruel Kingdom itself. The shadows of the underworld may hunger to tear them apart, but these two sisters are determined to heal their world - together.

An entertaining read

It was pretty decent actually, I was expecting worse because of the reviews but decided to try it anyway. I really like the overall concept of how the world was set up although I wish it was built out a little more as in some flashbacks of the other goddesses timelines since there was already so many povs anyway. Some of the "clues" they kept coming across had really obvious meanings which is fine but i was annoyed at how long it took them to figure out. I hated Arjun as a character in every single way including the way his voice was portrayed in his povs. I adored Odessa & Lans relationship from beginning to end. Overall I would give this series like 3.5/ or 4 because even though it dragged on a little longer than it needed to, it was entertaining for the most part.

heartbreaking

The Ever Cruel Kingdom was heartbreaking but a fitting end. I loved reading from everyone's point of view and how it always kept me at the edge of my seat. You think you know the ending but nope 🙅🏻. She surprises us with twist. Everyone's backs stories was touching. The characters are relatable is so many ways and you grow so attach to them that you understand exactly how they feel. I loved the 2 book series.
