Book of the Ancestor, Book 2
Synopsis: In Mystic Class Nona Grey begins to learn the secrets of the universe. But so often even the deepest truths just make our choices harder. Before she leaves the Convent of Sweet Mercy Nona must choose her path and take the red of a Martial Sister, the grey of a Sister of Discretion, the blue of a Mystic Sister or the simple black of a Bride of the Ancestor and a life of prayer and service.
All that stands between her and these choices are the pride of a thwarted assassin, the ambition of a would-be empress wielding the Inquisition like a blade, and the vengeance of the empire’s richest lord.
As the world narrows around her, and her enemies attack her through the system she has sworn to, Nona must find her own path despite the competing pull of friendship, revenge, ambition, and loyalty.
And in all this only one thing is certain.
There will be blood.
Review: I had a great time with the first volume and with such an end, I was curious to be able to embark on this new adventure! The construction is a little different from what we had. Indeed, while in the first novel, some chapters were happening in the future, we have this time a construction more common in the present here.
We find Nona and her friends in the continuation of their adventures. Despite the terrible trials they had to go through, our heroines have not finished! Indeed, it seems that everyone is trying to bring down our young friend, starting with some of her classmates. It will not be easy for the girl to put all her faculties to the test. In addition to that, Nona is still determined to avenge the murderer of her friend Hessa, although two years have passed and she is waiting and looking for clues to carry out her project!
We follow here all the characters of the previous volume and I was pleasantly surprised to see Clera again! Trouble continues to follow Nona and she will have to try to make the right choices to get by!
I really had a great time with this story once again and after all the events here, I’m really looking forward to discover what the author has in store for the future. I find that this series offers a lot of ideas and a rich and extraordinary world. We still have many things to discover and I can not wait to see what awaits us! It was a great sequel as you see it and I hope the next will come soon.
