Okay, so I went into and left Royal Bastards thinking it was a standalone novel Now low and behold I find out this is going to be a series Which makes some of my initial issues with how Royal Bastards concluded rather invalid, so perhaps I shall give this a chance to see if this series has redeeming qualities

Thank you, Netgalley, for an opportunity to read and review this book My views are entirely my own The much anticipated sequel to Royal Bastards is almost here I absolutely loved this follow up and fans of Shvarts s series opener will love this one too It s got romance It s got action It s got intrigue And it gave me so many damn feels It is pretty evident throughout that Shvarts is a Star Wars fan, as City of Bastards shares many of the same themes and elements throughout it s thoroughly fun ri [...]
I knew I loved this series after the first book, and thankfully, the momentum hasn t died down in this next installment of the Royal Bastards series I ll admit, it slowed down a bit, but overall, this book was a solid sequel and I m eagerly anticipating the next book.I love it when a book catches my attention right from the start and it doesn t always have to be a crazy intense opening scene This book and the series so far is very much character driven and Tilla is such an excellent main charact [...]

First off, I just want to say that I didn t realize this was the second book of a series until after I received an eARC through NetGalley Once I realized it was the second in the series, I looked at some of the reviews for this book and noticed that a lot of people claim the first book is better Since I never read the first book, I don t have anything to compare this one to.With that said, I ll move on to my review From the beginning of the story, the world building stood out the most Every litt [...]

I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Wow Wow Wow I remember reading Royal Bastards and not wanting to put the book down The same can be said for City of Bastards I love the emotional depth and character development that Shvarts puts into the main characters Nothing is black and white, no one is simply good or simply evil, actions have emotional motivations and repercussions Tilla, Zell, Lyriana and Ellarion are all far from perfect and while in some [...]
Good solid sequel I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the first I think that young adults will really enjoy the action and bring back the familiar characters.
Did not enjoy the beginning Could not continue.Will not be finishing.
