5 GLORIOUS STARS - I read this book in December and STILL cannot stop thinking about it. I am not kidding when I say it's my favorite 2018 release so far, nor can I wait any longer to share my thoughts with you.
”I believe dawn is the violent overthrow of night. But night is always still there - just on the periphery - waiting ... and at the end of the day, it comes to claim us all.”
Be still, my beating heart.
This sequel was everything I had hoped for and more. Secondborn was a good start to t ...more
May I start by saying that, for the record, I don't recommend starting this series from the second book. You most definitely do need to read the first before starting this, to get a better feel for the background of the story and the characters as well.
I was not one of the more aware readers when picking this up, but decided to dive straight in anyway. And despite the fact that I did this, by the end of the book, I had fully decided that I would find a copy of the first book as well and wait in ...more
Let me start by saying I liked Traitor Born more than I liked Secondborn. The pace was better, the action better, more death and mayhem. More Reykin.
I had a huge issue though. It's an issue that didn't really become an issue until the VERY tail end of this book. Then the more I pondered it, the bigger the problem became for me.
I'm not opposed to love triangles. Hell, I even expect them in young adult titles. Honestly, I even love them if they can be done right (right=to my picky ...more

Traitor Born is the second installment in author Amy A. Bartol's Secondborn series. The story picks up where Secondborn left off. Protagonist Roselle St. Sismode has found herself in a situation that most likely would make others skittish and run for the hills. She's become a pawn in a political game that has seen Rose become the person of the moment. The Gates of Dawn wants her to break the dreaded Fate system which includes ...more
I struggled with rating this between 4 stars and 3 stars. I thought I finally settled on 4 stars, but then got to talking about the book and realized there was just too much that didn't connect with me but at the same time, 3 stars didn’t seem right either because I still enjoyed the book and still look for to the next installment. So that’s how I landed at 3 1/2 stars.
This is book two of what I believe is set to be a trilogy, but who knows anymore these days, authors are adding more and more bo ...more
I need more REYKIN.
I mean, no one is as delicious as my perfect poopsie Kyon…but then again, who is??
I received a copy of Traitor Born from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Traitor Born is the second novel in the Secondborn trilogy by Amy A. Bartol. I’ve been anxious to get my hands on this novel ever since I ended the first one. Bartol has a way of writing that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and craving to learn what is going to happen next.
This is a dystopian novel; where society demands that every firstborn has two children; the first is obviously the firstborn, th ...more
