Publisher's Summary

She defied an empire....

Now she's starting a war.  

The Shadow Watch has been undone. Their captain lies in the dungeons of the White Citadel, and the Gallows Girl has disappeared. 

Most of the surviving Watchers have joined the chancellor's new magical army, the Sky Guard, led by Darien Redvar, but the Gallows Boy is shaken from the return of the monsters of the Old World, and he must soon choose, once and for all, where his loyalties lie. 

Tori treks to the Great White North with an Alyut shaman, who believes she is the one who will bring Restoration to his people. A resistance is growing in the North, but Tori may not be the god the people are looking for, and the price of revolution may cost Tori her heart as well as her life. 

Meanwhile, another threat grows in strength. Old World monsters are rising up across the New World, and no one knows how they've returned. As nations ready themselves for a magical war, their return threatens to change everything. 

New alliances are set in place, new friendships are forged, new loves kindled. But no one is safe, for there can be no war without betrayal. 

Don't miss the latest installment in the best-selling epic fantasy series listeners are comparing to Mistborn and Throne of Glass!

Was not disappointed!

This series is a hidden gem! I said after book 1 that I wanted more world-building, and a deeper understanding of the magic, and boy do we get that. There is so much more depth here, and I can see now that going deep on the characters in the first book was important to our investment in them in book 2. It's got everything a solid middle installment for a trilogy should have, including twists (so. many. twists.), payoffs for things from the first book that you knew had to mean more, a methodical pulling back of the camera for a broader scope, and conflicted characters we thought we'd come to understand.

I really can't say enough good things about this, and in a lot of ways this book made the whole series pop for me.

Better than book one

New beasts! New magic! Shifting alliances and convoluted motivations!

The characters:
In general, I was able to sympathize with all of the characters more in this book. I also enjoyed Tori much more than in the first book. Here we get to watch her accept her role, choose to quit doubting, and make the best decisions she can. That was probably the best upgrade in this sequel, though I also loved the other main characters' plotlines.

The plot:
Every time it seemed like things were just going way too well for Tori and the rebellion, something happened to quash that thought. The end seemed slightly rushed in some ways, and there was a whole lot of talking that, while necessary plot-wise, wouldn't have been smart in real life - and sure enough a certain character takes advantage of all the distraction. At the end we're left with some big questions about the next book.

The narration grew on me; I didn't find it distracting at all this book, though admittedly I did speed it up quite a bit :-)
(I was provided a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.)

back part 2 ...one epic adventure

Fantastic world of fantasy, determination, strength, resilience, friendship, truth, life,and so much more. Yes, here is where I tell you that you should have read/listen to the first book of this series. But at the same time I want to tell you that you can jump right in from here. I had the pleasure of listening to the first book and did so again before getting started on this second adventure of Tori and Darien.

Why I say that you could jump in from here? Well I say this because a friends was working in my space during the listen of The Rage of Saints, book two, and was all aboard from beginning to end. During our lunch break we discussed what we listened to up to that point. It was great. By the end of the three days it took us to listen, debate, question, and listen so more, let me just say that S.A. Klopfenstein got a new follower. I gifted a copy of both one and two of the series for future enjoyment. And if two adult were not enough of an endorsement, I got my pre-teen on the bandwagon. She loves the empowerment of girls angle and the adventure just added more.

Reasons I enjoyed this book:
Entertaining Great world building Page-turner Wonderful characters

*****
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by S.A. Klopfenstein. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Intriguing and Twisting Continuation

Rage of Saints picks up right where The Shadow Watch left off and ramps up the speed, intensity, and stakes. There are a number of unexpected twists along the way, and allegiances shift in radical, but understandable, ways. The quotes from books written in the future of the world where the series takes place give away a little of who will live, but not what changes they experience and who they ultimately will become. Very looking forward to seeing how this all resolves.

Continuing Saga

I received a free copy of the audiobook from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an honest review.
Book 2 in the Watcher Epic finds our protagonist Tori in new situations with new characters and some old favorites. The evil ruler is still at large and the dynamics have changed. The story is not resolved but the reader/listener is not left on edge. The narration is excellent. I look forward to the continuing story.
