By: Joelle Charbonneau
Release Date: June 5th, 2018
Summary from Goodreads: The electrifying conclusion to the Dividing Eden series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Testing trilogy, Joelle Charbonneau.
The Trials of Virtuous Succession have ended. Prince Andreus is king—and Princess Carys is dead.
But even as he’s haunted by what he did to win the throne, Andreus discovers that his dream of ruling only brings new problems. The people love his twin even more in death than they did when she was alive. The Elders treat him as a figurehead. And worst of all, the winds of Eden are faltering.
But despite what everyone believes, Carys is alive. Exiled to the wilderness, Carys struggles to control the powers that have broken free inside her. And as she grows stronger, so does her conviction that she must return to the Palace of Winds, face her twin and root out the treachery that began long before the first Trials started.
The Kingdom of Eden is growing darker with each passing day. Brother and sister, former foes, must decide whether some betrayals cut too deep to be forgiven—and whether one will wear the crown or both will lose everything.
Review: This amazing sequel to one of my favorite books so far this year has blown me away. I loved the first book when we started to know the twins Andreus and Carys and their plight that tore them apart. In this second installment, we find out just how far their love as siblings will go. Can they withstand the lies that have shaped their world, or will they be able to break through the walls of power and find that the only people they can trust are each other?
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
