I enjoyed this book muchthen the first book It is a dark mix between survivors guilt, anger and revelations I think it has the right mix of action and story Though I would like to say I would have liked a bitaction but I understand why it wasfocused on the story and revelations The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is a bit slow, and a bit too much repetition.In this book we

has the right mix of action and story Though I would like to say I would have liked a bitaction but I understand why it wasfocused on the story and revelations The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is a bit slow, and a bit too much repetition.In this book we learn the origins of most of the characters as well as the fae race themselves Every character is changed from the first book, and they do develop a bit in this one as well Aileana, in this book is on biggest change In the first book I did find her a bit annoying, but here she is remade tougher stronger and in a wayrelatable If not relatable but I defiantly feltempathy for her, not that I have been locked away and tortured for 3 years , as witnessing her experiences made me feel a bond with the character.All in all a good book of revelations, though it is a bit slow and you might be given enough clues to figure some not all of these out a little ahead of time A good addition to the series, for me this is one sequel better then the original I am genuinely exhausted right nowthese books are so exhausting I just fought a dozen battles, and wielded a sword, and nearly died, and got yelled at by a pixie who makes nice coats, aND FELT THINGS FOR KIARAN, and afjskdlafdthis book is an adventure in chaos So obviously I loved it dude I like faeries I like them a lot.Although these continue to be a different sort of faeries to the ones I usually read with Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, and Margaret Rogerson I like it, but I al I am genuinely exhausted right nowthese books are so exhausting I just

obviously I loved it dude I like faeries I like them a lot.Although these continue to be a different sort of faeries to the ones I usually read with Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, and Margaret Rogerson I like it, but I also have questions SO MANY QUESTIONS The rules of their power aren t clearly defined so half the time I m just like But I m here for the Falconers finding epic power There is war and bloodshed and history and SCOTLAND IN RUINS Alienna continues to be vulnerable and badass, which I LOVE.I also appreciated that we had way less of the constrictive 1800s proper society in this one aka, No Alienna You can t walk down the hallway without a male escort You delicate flower because, well, Scotland was BURNED Actually the world was ruined Many were sad It was intense Also I loved the friendship between Aileana and Aithinne Trauma bonding for my girls cries But also Aithinne was kind of mad and emotional and I LOVED HER Also her banter hate love relationship with her bro, Kiaran, was also my favourite Bring me dysfunctional siblings I will be here for this So there s a lot of lore and history to get through.Lots of plot twists and uncovering of histories There was a HUGE twist with the Seelie and Unseelie courts that had my heart beating faster I just I do admit I struggled to keep up with a lot of it And also the action scenes just whoost I m never good at focusing on them but the ending was SO INTENSE ADN EXCELLENT that it made up for a beginning that confused the heck out of me lmao.Overall I am a fan of this series The faerie aspects have caught my heart, and the death boy Kiaran vs the chaos girl falconer Aileana, are just the best I wanted to write an analytical and careful review about the power struggles, the ptsd and trauma rep, the careful world building and the intense magic systemsBUT LOOK WHAT YOU GET MY FEELINGS IN A BUCKET you re welcome And you ve already seen Kiaran, who is Leaving, Kiaran interrupts briskly My threshold for human tolerance is now exceeded Send the pixie for me in the event I get to stab something The truth is we re both running from whatever fate has been decided for us He is the faery whose gift is death and I am the girl whose gift is chaos.Most people would be dismayed by an attempted assassination, but Kiaran seems to regard it as either flirtation or flattery possibly both I m leaving this review here toeasily

talk a little about The Vanishing Throne The images here are ones I collected that fit certain scenes from the book some of you might recognize them as curious ones that have been sitting for years on my Pinterest page The Squire by Eve VentrueSome of the scenes in The Vanishing Throne have been in my mind since I first conceived of The Falconer way back in 2009 While book 1 will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my first published novel, the scenes from The Vanishing Throne have always been the ones I deeply longed to write Frozen in Water by Brooke ShadenWhen a writer is pursuing the traditional publishing route for a novel they intend to be the first in a series, a common piece of advice they receive is don t start the next book in a series until you sell the first Which is practical, well meaning advice meant to save querying writers from expending time and energy on a sequel just in case things don t work out for the first bookFirestarter by Victor EredelThis is advice I ve always followed After all, I wrote 9 unpublished novels before The Falconer sold, and I queried literary agents with Novel 9 Novel 9 was an intended first book, too Instead of writing its sequel while I was querying that one, I listened to the advice I received And I wrote The Falconer instead.It s funny how things work out The Dark Hedges by Gary McParlandSo out of all the sequels I ve had in my mind that never made it to page, The Vanishing Throne is the first one I ve ever had the opportunity to write And that was a unique experience, finally getting the chance to write down all the images and scenes and characters I had built in my mind for years and years Consuelo by Haciendo ClackIt was challenging and rewarding and difficult and wonderful And I hope hopehopehope that fans of the first book find it to be worth the wait 3x Elizabeth May Mif by Daniil Kontorovich i am dead to the point where i dont even know what to say and what the bellwjbdwiwsswjbswknxw i dont even know whata to say i just.goodbye i cant do this anyi hate this bookthan i hate myself, literally burn book I HATE YOU SO MUCH DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE i hate everythingin this world SCREAMS REALLY LOUD FOR TEN HOURS STRAIGHT My name is Lady Aileana Kameron First the fae murdered my mother Then they destroyed my world Now I m fighting for than revengeAileana took a stand against the Wild Hunt, and she lost everything her home, her family and her friends Held captive by her enemy, and tormenting herself over her failure, escape seems like only the faintest possibility But when she gets her chance, she seizes it to rejoin a world devastated by warThe future is bleak Hunted by the fae, running for her life, Aileana has only a few options left Trying to become part of a society scarred by and hiding from the Wild Hunt trusting that a fragile alliance with the fae will save her or walking the most dangerous path at all coming in to her own powers as the last of the Falconers The Falconer is one of my favorite series, yet I haven t recommended to others until now That s because book 1, The Falconer, had such an abrupt cliffhanger it would have been cruel to get others emotionally invested However, now that The Vanishing Throne is officially out, it s time to sing my praises for this series and author.A Vanishing Throne picks up a

recommended to others until now That s because book 1, The Falconer, had such an abrupt cliffhanger it would have been cruel to get others emotionally invested However, now that The Vanishing Throne is officially out, it s time to sing my praises for this series and author.A Vanishing Throne picks up a few months after the aforementioned abrupt ending of The Falconer For those who have read it, you know that Aileana failed to close the seal and thus the s thichean have been released As you can deduce this has had a devasting impact not only on Edinburgh, but the world This in turn transforms the series from a story about a debutante who secretly hunts fae, to a story about human survival Since I can t go into details without spoiling the book, I ll instead touch on the areas that make this book so phenomenal the characters, relationship development, and world building The protagonist, Aileana, is one of my literary favorites She s clever, witty, and above all, resilient I appreciate that she s not infallible and doesn t always succeed in her endeavors Most notably, not closing the seal and dooming the human race In book 2 she must deal with the effects of her failures and endures tremendous suffering at the hands of Lonnrach However, she perseveres and we see growth in her character and new maturity emerge We also finally start to understand Kieran andof his past is revealed It s not pretty Kieran is not a good person or rather, s thichean He knows this, and while he doesn t embrace it, he feels no remorse and is completely unapologetic about it He s no stereotypical prince charming or bad boy with a heart of gold, he s complex and damnable but this makes him profoundly alluring Additionally, new characters come into play, both human and s thichean While some are only there to move the plot along others, specifically Aithinne, quickly became my favorite If you recall from book 1, Aithinne is Kieran s sister and helped create the seal Unfortunately, she also became trapped inside with the other s thichean For thousands of years S thicheans who hated her Heinous, vicious, cruel s thicheans It s hard to say if the suffering she endured has left her a bit off, or if that her natural personality Either way, she s endearing and highly entertaining Moving on to the relationship development we see new friendships formed and others continued, but the pi ce de r sistance of the novel is the relationship development with Aileana and Kieran Book 1 had a subtle undercurrent of tension and romance intertwined with action and killing Book 2 explores this and gives the reader plenty of feels You will not be left wanting, nor will you be deluged with romance This book achieves a balance very few in the genre attain Finally, I want to briefly address the world building Book 1 left us a lot of questions about the seal, the Falconers, and the s thichean world This is addressed fully in book 2 and we are thrown some fascinating twists The storyline comes together and although I don t want to give anything away I will say it is good Of course what really brings the elements above together is the writing and pace I mentioned in my review of The Falconer that Elizabeth May is an exceptional writer and The Vanishing Throne continues to highlight this The pace and flow are just right There s action, romance, friendship, witty banter, and excellent dynamic between all the characters And while the end is does leave us wanting , it is thankfully not a terrible cliffhanger.Seeof my reviews at and like us at

libraries around you only have the digital copy Like, what type of BS is that The audio book for the first one was so incredibly great that I was so pumped to get back into this world but then there

first one was so incredibly great that I was so pumped to get back into this world but then there was no audio book That s called trickery and I m not happy about it.Ugh I m never going to get over this I m moving on.So the reason my rating is a little lower than what it actually should be besides the bloody audio book drama I just laid out there was the writing She would Italicize flashbacks, which wouldn t bother me at all and it would actually be really helpful , if it wasn t every other paragraph I found myself getting aggravated with the constant flashback lines But what kept me goingwere the twist My goodness she threw a huge twist in there about 2 3rds of the way in My heart literally tore open for the characters Aileana going through some serious PTSD was written so well throughout the whole book proving you can t just shake it off and that it will change the whole you do things Derrick proving he has humanity and showing everyone his home and opening it up to those who need it Kiaran standing up for those who he loves and proving that he can love and revealing a huge secret that involves his sister Aithinne.There were a lot of things I loved about this book The continual building of this world is phenomenal There are different layers that we get to see and experience May does a great job of not keeping you in the dark when it comes to describing the weapons and the people I am already reading the third book, and I am ready to see how this catastrophe comes to an end WrensReads Goodreads Twitter Instagram RTC I did NOT see that ending coming I m sorry,
