“Fine,” he said with a weary shrug. “Make me your villain.”
Ok, can I just read
about The Darkling the entire time please?
I absolutely adore him! I am a complete sucker for a villainous,
mysterious, or tortured soul character if they have enough charisma – and he
definitely fits this box for me.

I read this book
back in 2016, and for once actually wrote a review back then too on Goodreads.
I mentioned that I had mixed emotions about the book, and I think that still
stands, but I definitely don’t feel as scathingly towards it as I apparently
did back then – which surprised me when I found my old review, as I thought I
liked this book.

This book is one of
the best books I’ve read so far this year.
I don’t really ‘do’
Sci-Fi – I think The Martian by Andy Weir
may be the only other book I’ve read set in space and I don’t watch many films
set in the genre either, but I definitely need more of this! It’s so unique,
and the way it’s laid out really added to the immersion for me.

“Every story has four parts – the beginning, the middle, the almost ending, and the true ending.”
I’m finding it hard
to review this book. I tore through the book while reading it, needing to know
what happened next – but trying to
reflect on it now, I feel a bit more ‘meh’ about it. There weren’t really any
great big reveals for me, I guessed most of what was happening before it
happened – but I do seem to have an uncanny ability at seeing where things are
heading. It’s hard to get a plot twist by me!

As always with a
series written by Mark Lawrence, I
laughed. I cried. I mourned. I celebrated. The events and threads throughout
Red Sister and Grey Sister all converged perfectly into a heart wrenching
conclusion that left me hollow, but also contented – hopeful – for the future
ahead of Nona Grey.
