Publisher's Summary

With a price on her head, the evil Queen Sophia out for blood, and no idea who to trust, Camellia Beaureguard, the former favorite Belle, must race against time to find the ailing Princess Charlotte, who has disappeared without a trace. Sophia's imperial forces will stop at nothing to keep Camille, her sister, Edel, and her loyal guard, Remy, from returning Charlotte to the palace and her rightful place as queen. 

With the help of an underground resistance movement called the Iron Ladies - a society that rejects beauty treatments entirely - and the backing of alternative newspaper The Spider's Web, Camille uses her powers, her connections, and her cunning to outwit her greatest nemesis, Sophia, and attempt to restore peace to Orleans. But enemies lurk in the most unexpected places, forcing Camille to decide just how much she's willing to sacrifice to save her people. 

A Booklist pick of the day. A Tor.com reviewers' choice of this winter's upcoming young-adult SFF books.

Loved the first one, this one was ok.

I really enjoyed the first audiobook in the series. I couldn't stop listening to it, and I was so excited for this one. The reader's voice is beautiful. This one took me months to listen to because it didn't keep me as interested at all. This is an extremely minor spoiler, but Princess Sophia was much less present in this book, and after listening to this one, I realize her absence left a huge hole in the book. It got interesting to me when she was active. This one was just ok.

Falls short of the first book

After reading the first book, I was excited to read the sequel. It fell short for me for several reasons. Descriptive scenes were over done and took too much time to get through so much so that the action scenes became anticlimactic. Also, the protagonist of the story lost her edge and never really regained it which made story and her actions become too childlike and unbelievable. What I did love about the book was the narrator. Rose did a fantastic job with her characters. Overall, the read fell short for me.

Waste of potential

This was a sloppy sequel. Rushed and underdeveloped. I’m very disappointed because there was so much great potential here.

ok, unfortunately I am team August

i throughly enjoyed this story. i was hoping for august redemption and their reunion.

camilla grows is power, but i do not necessarily see her growth in character. she is still a bit rash and hot headed.

i like Remy, but i didn't feel like it was a passionate love connection. more like the friendly love connection that you settle into.

a satisfying end

I really liked the world created by the author. the magical elements get defined...but not all imo.
the story moved well and though it concludes a third book could tidy up so loose end of the myth. all in all a good read.
