Hello and welcome to my stop of the tour for the EPIC conclusion to the Onyx & Ivory duology. I am so excited to share my review as well as a few of my favorite quotes from the book. I actually had to reread Onyx & Ivory in order to be completely ready for what happens next. So let’s get started.
From acclaimed author Mindee Arnett comes the thrilling conclusion of the
stunningly epic, action-packed, and romantic fantasy adventure about a powerful girl
possessed of strange magic, the outcast prince she loves, and the kingdom that has
torn them apart.
Kate and Corwin are on the run, desperate for allies in a new world of war among
the kingdoms of Rime. As the book opens, Kate suffers a massive loss, one that will
shape the struggle for freedom of all wilders and magic folk—that is, if Kate can
learn to control her own power.
Ahhh! Look at this quote. I mean what happens. How did we get there! So many questions and the answer is crazier than you would believe.
This book throws you right back into the action 6 months from the ending of the last book. The plot rockets from about 1- 100 in the span of a page. I started and finished this book in the same day. That is how engrossed I was and how much I needed to know how it ends.
The dual perspective gives us two very different sides of the story. Each side has enough angst and high drama that you won’t feel bored with one. This is great since lately a lot of dual POV bore me.
The romance is more subtle in this book and it focuses more on Kate and Corwin growing as individual characters. And there is a lot of growth that happens. From book one through the ending of this you feel that each character grows and changes. Some not in the best way.
Overall this was the perfect duology. If had action, magic, horses, heartbreak, and love. If you enjoyed the first book you will Love this one.
