Publisher's Summary

A world split between day and night. Two sisters who must unite it. The author of The Bone Witch kicks off an epic YA fantasy duology perfect for fans of Furyborn.

Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon - until one sister’s betrayal split their world in two. A Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in eternal night, the other scorched beneath an ever-burning sun.

While one sister rules the frozen fortress of Aranth, her twin rules the sand-locked Golden City - each with a daughter by their side. Now those young goddesses must set out on separate, equally dangerous journeys in hopes of healing their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.

Told from four interweaving perspectives, this sweeping epic fantasy packs elemental magic, star-crossed romance, and incredible landscapes into a spectacular adventure with the fierce sisterhood of Frozen and the breakneck action of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Not for Me

Honestly, the writing is decent. The story has a great premise and the landscapes are amazing. I love the magic system as well. It's the themes and lack of character development that bothered me.

Since the story is about goddesses, I was not expecting it to revolve around patriarchal issues, like the evils of angry/"hysterical" women in power or male on female victimization. I can see how those issues might be deemed nearly universal. But I don't think they fit the wider theme here or bolstered the narrative the way the author hoped. And the character development was less development and more sudden changes that didn't always make sense. In particular, one relationship that was supposed to grow from reluctant traveling companions into lovers (H + A) happened seemingly only to check off a romance box and the pivot point of the change felt incredibly creepy.

Cool premise, but a bit slow

At first, I wasn't sure about this book. I liked the premise, but was confused as to who the bad guys were and what Odessa and Haidee were trying to accomplish. Around 75% it clicked and the last part flew by in a fury of craziness! The world split in half with one side desert and light all the time and one side frozen and in perpetual darkness was so cool and I loved the idea. I also liked the four main characters, they all have their own difficulties and feelings and I shipped the couples hardcore lol. Spoiler alert for a cliffhanger ending, now I can't wait for the next book!

Not the worst not the best

This book lost me a few times to the four different narrations of the characters. The narrator did a meh job at differentiating the characters voices and I often found myself having to listen a little closer to figure out who was talking.
The book ends on a cliff hanger (literally) but its a not a good one, infact it almost turns me off from reading the next book- almost. If you want a book to burn some time and enjoy the genre I would consider reading it, but it definitely isn't the most well written or narrated audio book I've listened too in awhile.

not what I expected...but AMAZING 👏

so I've recently finished 2 other series of Rin Chupeco (bone witch & the girl from the well). I had expected this series to be somewhat similar to those... boy, was i wrong lol but I must say I enjoyed this thoroughly!! its not what I expected and probably for my own lack of even reading what this was supposed to be about. nevertheless I enjoyed this just the same as I have appreciated the author's other works. I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this book and I loved every minute of it. constantly kept me guessing. The readers of this book were also very engaging and performed it so flawlessly it was like i forgot i was being read the story- as i was watching it flow in my minds eye. i look forward to starting the sequel to this very soon!

a true epic storyteller

Rin Chupeco is an amazing wordsmith. A true painting with words. I can't wait for more to come.

Confusing at first, but you get into it.

there are some vocab words at the beginning that makes no sense and have to figure out what they mean and later on in the story. A "Cat's Eye" is a skilled spell caster who is an elite soldier. "Gates" are types of magic that can be used. "Galla" are shadow demons.

The story is in the point of views of four different people. These four are of two goddesses and their corresponding love interest. The whole lure of the world being broken and never spinning is the excuse to tell a rather eccentric love story. This is one of those stories where you have to just say "Ok, that's a thing." to. A lot of events don't have explanation, and to be fair, it would just bog down the story. If you're use to the bizarro world of magic and sorcery, this shouldn't be a problem to get into unless you dislike romance novels.

So many perspectives

I’m not a fan of how it goes from one person to the next. It would be easier if it was just written in third person. But it’s an over all good story. I wish it was more fast pace but I will be going to the next book. I would recommend

Fantastic, Beautiful, Addicting!

I have listened to this book three times, and it is just as good as the first time that I listened to it! I love the characters, I love the story, it's funny, and heart wrenching, creative and just plain awesome! I highly recommend this book to anyone who also loved Rin Chupeco's Bone Witch Series. I'm a total fan! <3 <3 <3

Loved the story, but not the narrators

It seems that some of the narrators changed the pronunciation of Arjun’s voice (not sure if I spelled that right) halfway through the book. While I did enjoy the use of a different narrator for each point of view, it felt somewhat excessive. I found it difficult at times to ascertain what was character dialogue and what was thought. Overall, I quite enjoyed the story. I’m not a huge fan of the ending, but it is a sure way to get people to buy the sequel. It felt like the relationship between Arjun and Hade progressed rather quickly or the amount of time they spent with one another was not quite expressed fully. While the idea of a world split into night and day is by no means unique, I did enjoy the take Chupeco chose.

Disappointing.

I got this after The Girl from the Well, which I really enjoyed, but this was a huge disappointment. It was dull, and felt awkwardly written. The characters were uninteresting, and the story just didn't grab my interest. I won't be bothering with the next book.

A great read!

It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did it was a thoroughly enjoyable read!
