Lou and Reid need to find allies against La Dame Blanche. Among their possible candidates are Les Dames Rouges, Coco is one of them, the werewolves, King Auguste and the Chasseurs, to which Ansel and Reid belonged. It is unlikely that these groups would want to become allies with them but Lou’s mother is powerful and she’s chasing them, so they need to try.
Besides the king’s bastards are being slayed. Could it be a warning for our main characters?
The first book left me excited and wanting to read the next ones. I had great expectations, sadly this book killed them.
I thought it was very dramatic, Reid acted as he was a saint and full of prejudice (more than in the first book), I didn’t like Lou so much, Ansel acted very silly (I don’t remember him being so so so so silly), and the end was absurd and a deception.
I think that the story of Lou’s mother could have ended here and the third book could be about something else. There’s a lot of material to talk about.
I can’t deny that there were exciting moments and new interesting characters. Also the romance and loyalty are still present and I like that.
I already have the third book so I’ll read it hoping some changes and improvement.
This is only my opinion, if you want to read the book it has some good parts.
