Deciding last minute to stay in Starrs, Michelle continues her epic adventure as Goddess. After all, learning how to save the world sure beats a year of pre-calculus. With her friends by her side, Michelle travels to a city of scholars to learn the lore of the Cycle of the Six Moons.
At first, the exotic retreat turns romantic, as Michelle spends her free time exchanging sweet letters with the crown prince, Jayse. But, during her studies, Michelle learns something that drastically changes her game plan. Powerful blood must be spilled to end the Cycle…blood that only runs through her veins and the prince destined to fall in love with her.
During a celebration honoring their enlightenment, Michelle and Jayse are whisked off to a rogue city as trophies of a tournament, where only the strongest can claim a taste of their blood. Gallant as ever, their guardian, Gediyon, enters to prevent harm to his friends. Unfortunately for the contestants, the Cycle’s latest trial prevents everyone from waking from a cursed slumber…(Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of the author.
In this book, we continue to follow Michelle in her variety of misadventures in attempt to become the goddess everyone expects her to become. The book picked up immediately after the previous one, which is a little disorienting if you need a refresher. I don’t think it would be possible to start with this book without reading the previous. As in the previous book, there were a few scenes that you just have to roll with it and accept the situation. I know that some may find this annoying, but I enjoyed hearing about new areas of the world.
The characters definitely do some growing up throughout the story although it is clear that Michelle still plans on getting her own way with some things. I loved hearing more about Gediyon’s story, but I am quite nervous to hear how that fits into the bigger picture. There were a lot of reveals at the end of the book so there is much to come!
Warning: Contains some violence.
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? Folks who have read the first book, otherwise it’ll be confusing!
