Gr 8 Up–The Companions—Corayne and her fellow ragtag heroes—have managed to kill a giant kraken and close one Spindle, the portals leading to another world. She is ready to accept her heritage and take up her father’s sword, but Queen Erida has taken the evil Taristan as her consort and all his monsters are at her disposal. Aveyard has nailed the balance of political maneuvering and action sequences, avoiding the middle book slump. There is diversity in the main cast and worldbuilding, as well as easy acceptance of queer and nonbinary characters.
VERDICT Aveyard’s fans will be awaiting this sequel. A first purchase.
