I’ll be honest. I don’t have much to share about this second book of the “The Demon Queen Trials” series. I guess it had to happen for the third book to be a possibility. In here, Rowan is trying to figure out who she really is, while preparing herself for the chance to rule the demon city. At the same time, Orion is set to bring chaos to the world with or without her.
At some point it got quite slow. Also, the ending was a bit flawed. I understand the result had to happen that way. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be a reason for another book to come. However, the argument for such result was weak. You see, one of the protagonists made a mistake that cost her/him gravely. It’s a mistake that was perfectly avoided as her/his reason for making that decision wasn’t necessary.
Finally, I would like to comment on the upcoming third book “Garden of Serpents,” to be released this June. Obviously, we all want to know what happens between Orion and Rowan, never mind what happens with the demons and humans. At least, this is my reason for reading this next book. Now, I believe C.N. Crawford could have been a bit more enthusiastic about this book. Have you seen the description? It’s only one sentence long explaining our protagonists will go through a series of trials to “battle for the throne.” Come on! Don’t get us so excited to read your book!
