This sequel shakes things up, introduces an interesting new POV, and delivers some satisfying twists and turns. Scythe Anastasia has a very logical narrative progression and her story proceeds as expected, as she gains more influence and connections. Rowan, on the other hand, is transformed in an entirely new direction, with his purpose displayed in the first few chapters. A very good sequel that builds well with a fantastic conclusion. I'm very excited for the third and final novel in this series.
