Picking up after the tournament that was the culmination of the first book in the series and Kiram was allowed to stay in Sagrada Academy given that Javier will look after his welfare. There are so many things that happened in this book but the main highlight for me was Kiram’s homecoming in Anacleto where we get to see more of his family and the ways of where Kiram grew up. Here, Javier also has to make a very difficult decision that could change everything in his life.
Oh, and I so loved that angle about Eleazar. That was hard for the guy I’m sure [no spoiler though 😉 ] I thought the middle and the most latter parts were a bit fast-paced but hey, I’m not really complaining. It’s still pure awesomeness [like seriously, I cannot wait to read the next book in the series]
Kiram fought his family and Cadeleonian bigots to remain in the Sagrada Academy to prove himself as a mechanist and to dispel the deadly shadow curse that threatens to destroy his upperclassman, Javier Tornesal.
But when his efforts provoke retaliation, Kiram’s family and home are endangered. Both Kiram and Javier risk everything in a desperate gambit to combat the curse.
But they never imagined their battle would come so soon, or that it would be led by the one person they trust most of all. via Goodreads
The bit about the man behind the shadow curse was kinda predictable but it’s all good since I’ve already expected it even from the first book. Oh and how I loved the people of Haldiim! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place like that for real???!!
The conclusion here was rather abrupt but I think it ended that way to create more clamour for the series and it very much succeeded in a way. It is once again, just beyond!!!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
