The Icarus Girl uThat there was an honest to god cuddling naked for warmth when the other LI walks in scene I have read that scenario so many times bef This is probably going to be a really shoddy review and I feel extra bad because this is for an ARC but I m honestly just so frustrated by this read that I don t know how to articulate my feelings in anything than rant formGoing into EVER THE BRAVE was concerning based on how the plot twisted near the end of book one I had hoped that Summerill wouldn t introduce a love triangle element but alas she did It was a situation complicated as a result of some of Britta s magic but still It felt like an excuse not only for the added drama but to gives two extra POVs after EVER THE HUNTED s single POV most of which felt like nnecessary filler to show how one character basically spent the whole book running in circles and chasing his tailFrustration was the name of the game really The bit of hopeful potential joy I got out of the first book in the Clash of Kingdoms duology was totally missing here I felt that too much time was spent on things that we didn t need angst over dresses and a forced friendship between our main girl and a handmaiden which the author spends most of the book convincing s exists but is never actually felt because why vs actually fleshing out of the clash between these two kingdoms Despite the conflicts I never actually felt like it was that big of a deal Everything felt too small scale too focuses on personal dynamics the sense of grandness never came through Maybe because the king was a doofus I swear his POV might actually have been worse than Cohen s and he was the one running over the border eight million times chasing wrong informationSo much isn t ever really explained Such as with Phelia for example This was a reveal that wasn t much of a reveal I expected it after the midway point of the first book and I felt her presence was really nderutilized I had so many estions about the why of her role her power etc and we get no answers Too much word count spent fighting off hypothermia I guessAlso I would ve liked to spent time on the actual showdown these two books were building towards instead of just brief mustache twirling I m Super Evil moments and then boom you re dead Which kind of mirrors my feelings about these bawse lady Channelers from the Guild We meet them most of them are bitchy and then boom treaty ending done That being said I m glad everything is boom dead boom done after only two books because I couldn t have trudged through another I was Marie Antoinette unhappy enough about this read during the middle to 75% portion that I was thinking this would be a one star but there was enough maturity in the writing and even some of the actions of the characters but not Aoden never Aoden wtf I m pretty sure she s with Cohen but I wonder if she d like me are you fucking serious and don t get me started on poor little rich prince boy and his woe about being an outsider that I m willing to bumppI see a spinoff is in the works and honestly I m not surprised by the pairing but I have no interest in anything further from this world at this point I received an ARC from Edelweiss and the publisher thank you in exchange for an honest review Happy Release Day Wooo you guys this book was SOOOO good This is a spoiler free review Though there will
SPOILERS FOR BOOK 1OMG THIS WAS FANTASTIC I ADORED for book 1Omg this was fantastic I adored first book though I ll admit it was a little slow at times The world was so pretty and Britta was such a likeable heroine that I didn t even care about the pacing But this book FAST Perfect pacing Pretty much non stop Not to mention SO MANY FEELS that I am still just I don t even knowI can t talk too much about the plot aside from what the synopsis mentions but you know the thing that happens at the end of book one Well yep that s kind of a major plot point for this book No it wasn t too good to be
true When I read that last page I was losing my When I read that last page I was losing my and that s pretty much why I was BEGGING for an ARC of this book by the way a HUGE thanks to HMH books for sending me this copy and saving my sanity So on that note and as you can tell by the synopsis Britta now has this strange connection with the king that no one can explain She s hiding it from Cohen but the king himself knows DRAMA ENSUES Not to mention everyone is in disarray and trying to track down the woman who had the king nder her spell thus controlling him from the first book There are lots of plot twists and fun turns and wow I was highly entertained It was difficult to sit this book downAlso this one introduces new POVs and I enjoyed them all SO MUCH I don t want to give too much away since we re still a ways away from the release date but I was so pleasantly surprisedI will say this Those of you who are hoping to get to know the king well you will have your needs met I LOVE HIM SO MUCH I CANNOT EXPRESS IT WITH WORDS PROPERLY SMOL KING ALERTbreathes deeplyAlright continuing on I just adored Britta and no not just because her nickname is my #Nickname And We Have The # and we have the hair color She was fierce believable flawed and truly a pleasure to have as a heroine I loved watching her struggle with some emotionalmoral conflicts Cohen on the other hand I went back and forth on I found him a little lacking in the first book but he surprised me in this one To be completely honest he drove me crazy for a good chunk of the book because of his protective overbearingness he has towards Britta but without spoiling anything I did appreciate his character arc and by the end he had grown on me a good bit I was suprised at how much I ended p really loving him by the end As far as the romance I m going nuts over here because I can t say much without major spoilers literally NOTHING and I m in agony since I can t talk about it a lksjfa lksjfaldkjf Ugh but I m not sure how. Ed a tether between them she cannot sever no matter how much she'd like to and now he's insisting on making her a noble lady And there are those who want to se Britta’s power for evil designs If Britta canno. I feel about the end On one hand I think Erin made the right choice and on the other I m I can t I ll get emotional I can t talk about it Let s just say I was surprised time and time again I also had like 3 ships going at one time so don t talk to me Wait no talk to me if you ve read it PLEASE TALK TO MEI was worried about certain people being sed as plot devices but now that I know what I know I m feeling pretty good I m also SO EXCITED because there s another book in this world and ERIN GIRL I AM SO READY FOR THIS If you re looking for a well rounded story in a gorgeous fantasy setting with lots of emotional dramaconflict this is for you The writing was just lovely as always and my gosh buy yourself the hardcovers because look at that design My advice is to savor the world savor the characters and come to me crying afterwards because I still need solace Pre reviewI don t know how I feel right now Part of me is happy and part of me is sad Like what how am I supposed to just I don t know I don t knowwwwww If I say any then that it would be a spoiler for sure I haven t decided on the amount of stars because I just need to recover and thinkThis was an emotional journey beautifully written and I m a huge Erin Summerill fan now for sure Erin if you re out there PLEASE tell me if there s a possibility of getting a book about a certain character I m sure you can guess who I m talking about Like I really need this My heart is bleedingFull review to come closer to the release date And a huge thank you to HMH books for sending me this copyMy Blog Instagram Twitter Etsy Wrapped Beyond Band of Brothers up super nicely but GODDAMN IM SO MAD ABOUT WHO BRITTA CHOSE AT THE END A pretty interesting seuel to Ever the Hunted Now it definitely had it s flaws but the fight between the two kingdom was highly entertaining It intrigued me enough to want to dive into the third book whenever that comes outCohen is off doing his own thing for most of the book Then there s Britta who is developing a stronger connection with someone and then a little bomb was dropped Not literally but her mom showsp and things just kind of escalate from bad to worse to really freaking bad If you catch my drift shit hit the fan a LOT Besides all of that Britta grows and into her powers which got me pretty hooked The whole magic part of this book was probably the thing got me flipping through the pages the most The romance part was okay I don t really like love triangles so I didn t really look forward to any of that or really pay attention I didn t really care about who she was with nless it s Cohen Overall it was an interesting book Yes it had it s boring or slow parts because the pacing seemed a bit off throughout the book If it didn t throw in a love triangle I probably would ve loved the book a lot I did enjoy the character growth in this book I can t decide who grew Britta or Cohen Either way I liked the book enough that I can t wait to dive into the third book You can see this full review and at Book Briefs Note This is the second book in a series that needs to be read in order If you are new to the series you can check out my review of book one Ever the Hunted HEREEver the Brave is the second book in the young adult fantasy series Clash of Kingdoms by
Erin Summerill I Loved The First Book In The Series Summerill I loved the first book in the series the hunted and I have to say I really enjoyed Ever the Brave as well I found the story to be an excellent follow p novel to the first book It was just as strong of a story ever The Brave picks p shortly thereafter the events of the first book so you do need to read this series in order There are lots of interesting aspects to touch on in Ever the Hunted there is magic romance political intrigue and action and suspense Plenty for any fan of fantasyOne of the things I loved about Ever The Hunted was the interesting magic abilities found in some people I remember wanting to explore those abilities To find out about what kind of channeler Britta was
And What She Could what she could And I am so happy to report that my wish was granted in Ever The Brave If you remember what happened with the king and Britta as the end of the first book you know that will certainly prove interesting The king is much of a main character in Ever the Brave along with Britta and the wonderful CohenEver the Brave is told in multiple perspective between Britta and Cohen and I loved that we started out right from Cohen s point of view Getting inside of his head and seeing his feelings for Britta as he is sent off on missions for the king helped me grow even closer to him We also get to see the King s point of view in this book and darn it if I don t really like him as well He certainly complicated things but in a good way I enjoyed seeing his point of view splashed throughout the story And I am so happy to say that there is going to be a third book in this world I don t want to spoil too much but I am really really happy with how everything turned out I love all of the characters At the end of the last book I was still a little ndecided on some of the characters and I do have my favorites but I felt like I nderstood everyone so much better and I was overall really pleased with each and every one of them Ever the Brave was a very satisfying read We got to learn about the magic and channeler s we got lots of swoony moments and romance tons of adventure and action and a really satisfying wrap p Plus another book I love that because I am not ready to leave this world I love it so much Please write many books Erin SummerillBottom line If you are a fan of young adult fantasy books Ever the Brave is one you should check out It has a great est style adventure with lots of magic romance intrigue and a really cool world I really enjoyed this one and I am looking forward to book three alreadyThis review was originally posted on Book Briefs.
