Review + Thoughts
Rebel Spring was one of the best sequels I have read in the longest time. There is a lot more action and drama in this book, making it one of my favorites so far. I am more in love with some characters than I was while reading the first book.
Honestly, this series is at the top of my favorites list. Yes, this series has multiple character point of views and sometimes that does not turn out well for most books, but with the Falling Kingdoms series in this case, the multiple character point of views are glorious. We – the readers – get to feel what each character is feeling and so forth.
So far, my favorite characters are both Magnus, Lucia and Cleo. I can’t explain why due to little spoilers if you have not this book or started the series yet, but just wait and see.
