In this mesmerizing sequel to the New York Times bestselling Girls of Paper and Fire, Lei and Wren have escaped their oppressive lives in the Hidden Palace, but soon learn that freedom comes with a terrible cost. Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn't the end of the plan---it's just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei's head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within. Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?

This was good! A great sequel to the excellent Girls of Paper and Fire and I'm fairly satisfied with how the story flows overall.

This book continues where it left off in the first and it was slightly different in the sense that there were the additions of a few POV's which we didn't read about. I'm happy that we got a few chapters from Aoki's view, though I would've liked more? Hopefully the third book would bring back the girls from the first book. Besides Aoki, there were also chapters from the King's loyal follower, Naja, too. That was fun to read too!

I enjoyed the introduction of new characters (Merrin, Bo, Nitta, Hiro, Ketai, Caen and even the mentioned General Lova too!). With the addition of these characters, there were more moments where I find myself giggling because their interactions with each other were too funny not to.

There were a few twists that really caught me by surprise. I didn't expect them and it didn't come off as unbelievable or anything like that so that was good! Again, like the first book, I enjoyed the few inserts of Malaysian culture. Imagine my surprise at reading the word 'Alamak' suddenly coming out of nowhere! There were mentions of food too, from curry puffs to dadar. I found the mix of cultures nicely done here.

I'm sad for Lei at the end of the book, there was a whole lot that wasn't resolved between her and Wren but I'm hopeful for the next book! ( )

I don't know girl... this book is asking me to be very emotionally invested in a relationship that was never anything but toxic, and I just don't care.

As an aside the pacing is weird, and the plot feels... unecessary? A waste of time? Like why are we here, it's just pile on betrayals and then we're back to square one. Like, ok. But also, no. ( )

I read this for the "A Book With Romance" part of my 2020 reading challenge. Some parts felt a bit weak and juvenile, otherwise I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. I like the idea of the different casts of demons and the hierarchy, and how they're so animal based. I'm really looking forward to book 3 to see what other trials Lei faces. ( )
