Kallik (Alli) and Faolan’s quest to find Underhill and open the realm continues in A Throne of Feathers and Bone- book 2 in the Honey and Ice trilogy.
Our story continues on from ACOHAA, where Underhill has been sealed from the Fae, and as a result they are slowly going mad. Or are they?
Oh how I love the world building in this series- the attention to detail brings realms to life in the mind of the reader. Combine that with a quest with twists and turns that keep you on the edge- and creates wonderful pace and tension within the novel. The ending of this book is epic!!!!
Allie and Lan’s relationship strengthens in book 2- these two smoulder with chemistry and desire- I am so looking forward to their bond growing in book 3.
Our memorable cast of characters add depth, humour and tension within this world. I really enjoyed the character development of the Oracle in this book. I loved the ancient kelpie with his dry derogatory sense of humour.
This is one of those moreish books. You can't stop reading unless adult things interupt you or you finish it.
Needless to say almost all of my adulting and paternal duties were mostly ignored until I devoured this.
The slow burn and romantic tension was great. It gave hints and teasers when I wanted them and gave just enough that I wasn't left with blue balls, but still wanting more.
The pace in this was most satisfactory and as I've come to expect with both St Clare and Mayer, they don't drag things out unnecessarily.
I found a couple of the plot reveals predictable but it didn't detract from my enjoyment.
There are quite a few YA Tropes in this and it did read more older YA than New Adult to me but that may be because I read a lot of Adult Fantasy. But I was living for the one bed trope *Squeals with glee*
Over all, this is a guilty pleasure series for me. It's not my favourite of either author but it's definitely a good time and so easy to read. I read this in 1.2 sittings. Could not put it down.
Absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. The characters and story line kept me on my toes and I wanted to dive in deeper to find out more. Can’t wait for the next one! It was so good. Thank you Shannon & Kelly! Amazing!
Book 2 normally slows down and take some chapters to get into them but this series just keeps you so interested the twist and turns it takes get you heart pumping. The main characters relationship development it just so well written. SHANNON AND KELLY are both amazing writers on there own but I'm so glad they decided to write together as this is above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Can't wait for the next book.
I love this series so much, and I honestly don't even know how everything is going to be wrapped up in just one more book!! One thing I DO know is that it will be amazing!
In this second installment of the Honey and ice trilogy Alli, as always, has a tough task ahead of her on her hunt to find the door to underhill.
We learn more about the backstories of our characters in this book, and Alli grows so much! The relationship between Alli and Lan is also getting stronger, I love their banter and the romance is definitely kicked up a notch or two!
Its so hard to write a review without any spoilers, but If you like enemies to friend/lovers then you will love this.
I want to see more of Kelly and Shannon I seriously hope they team up for lots more books after this series because the writing is seamless and fits together so well.
I cant wait for the next book to be released as I think I will be suffering a serious book hangover untill then. The only thing I hate is that it will be the last one!
Entertaining, Emotive & Explosive!😍😲💥 A Throne of Feathers and Bone (Honey and Ice Trilogy #2)
This was a more convoluted read than book #1. The tale was far more twisty & turny, it took us down what amounted to dead ends that then veered the story in other directions, with each new path adding more questions & revealing few answers.🙈😕
After their escape from Alli's execution, they go to the Unseelie castle. She meets the Queen for the first time. She is everything the Seelie Queen Consort isn't. After fleeing the Fae island Alli & Lan spend more time together, looking for the entry to Underhill. With diversions & near death experiences they're drawn closer constantly. After an explosion of their mixed magic causes devastation, Alli loses hope that she's worthy or that they'll ever be able to be together.💔
Truth lies in Underhill for them both, especially Alli, but is she ready to hear it?😲 What has become of Cinth?😔 Can Ruby calm the outcasts fury?🙏 Will war ruin them all?💥
This was a frustrating & captivating read. These Authors have a great writing chemistry, it's seamless.👍 Now the agonising wait begins for book #3.🙈 Enjoy the ride.🌟
Loved this second book in the series full of twists and turns with great character development and world building. I expect there are still quite a few more twists and shocks to come in the third book as there is still much to be uncovered. Five stars for this and now I'm going to try & discover the recipe for bruadur like Cinth.
These two authors really are a dream team! What a thrilling follow up to book one. This story takes so many twists and turns with plenty of drama that kept me glued to my kindle. I really like the characters in this series, there is real depth to them. I’m looking forward to book three! 5 stars ⭐️
