  • When Can I Read Book 3?

    I received an ARC of The Savior's Sister in exchange for an honest review. The Savior's Sister is the companion novel to The Savior's Champion, and as such works through the same events as TSC, but from a different point of view. Last time we saw the Sovereign's Tournament through the eyes of Tobias, from the point of view of the competitors. This time we see the Tournament and everything going on behind the scenes through Leila's eyes, from the Savior's court. As the synopsis indicates, Leila's life is in danger. We got a hint of this in The Savior's Champion, as Leila does admit this much to Tobias during their stolen moments together, but we didn't know the extent. In The Savior's Sister, we follow Leila and her sisters as they ferret out all of Brontes' spies and allies and either bring them to a quick end or turn them into double agents. We get names, back stories and precious warm moments with characters who had only the most fleeting and deceptively dark appearances in The Savior's Champion, like the meticulous torturer in the "stay calm" challenge, Talos. We get answers to questions we didn't know we needed to ask, like how Raphael got a deck of cards into the sanctuary, and why it's for the exact game later featured in one of their challenges. TSS fills in a thousand little details we didn't even know were missing without another point of view. Leila is a very compelling, well rounded, and real character. I enjoyed the time spent in her mind from cover to cover, even when I wanted to shake some sense into her along with Delphi over her snap judgements about misunderstandings and assumptions surrounding Tobias. In TSC when I had moments of wanting to shake sense into Tobias and make him pick up on the hints I was picking up on, I questioned why he didn't even wish, just for a second, that Leila wasn't who she appeared to be and the inevitable end he saw wasn't leading him to either death or Cosima. In TSS, when I had moments of wanting to shake sense into Leila, it was more of a loving sister to sister feeling of "Hey, I get it. Life hasn't been good to you. But trust me, some things are good, and he's one of them!" Leila's instinctive mistrust of just about everyone around her except Delphi and a couple secret allies, her moments of weakness when she shows mercy to someone she knows doesn't deserve it that clash with how quickly and coldly she dispatches others, and her inner turmoil over necessary killing when her purpose in the world is to heal all feel so perfectly genuine. Whether you as the reader have lived through traumatic things or not, I feel like Leila is so well written that everyone will immediately understand her broken mind. If you read or re-read TSC right before diving into TSS, like I did for a refresher, then dialogues between Leila and Tobias may feel repetitive because you did indeed just read them. That's not a bad thing! The repeated parts are crucial to the story, and being able to experiencing these conversations from the other point of view brings so much nuance and understanding into how the evolving dynamic between these two people changed everything about Leila's fight against Brontes. Some potential readers, upon hearing that this is a companion novel to TSC covering the same timeline, may wonder if this book can be read first. My answer is yes, but. Is this a complete story all on its own that would be understood and appreciated without previously reading TSC? Yes. Would TSC still be an enjoyable read if you read TSS first? I think so. BUT, TSC has an element of mystery and a big reveal that would be spoiled if you've already read TSS. (TSS has another big reveal that doesn't appear at all in TSC, so the reverse is not true.) There's also some lore about Thessen and the origin and role of The Savior that isn't repeated in TSS. So if you can, read The Savior's Champion first, then The Savior's Sister. I am now eagerly awaiting book three!

  • The perfect companion novel!

    The Savior's Sister perfectly compliments The Savior's Champion with the opposing story from Leila's point of view surrounding the Sovereign's Tournament. You get new characters, political intrigue, and more about the Savior of Thessen, and she's no damsel in distress. We dive deeper into Leila's past, her powers, and her relationships with her sisters, father, and of course, Tobias. If you love dark fantasy and romance, TSS is not to be missed. *I received this ARC in return for an honest review.

  • Loved it!

    I like how the same story was told but in the perspective of the person keeping the secret. I had so many questions when i finished the first boom. Now i want to know what happens to Tobias and Leila next.

  • bit misleading as it was the savior

    The first book was excellent. The second was good but a lot of it was copied and pasted from the first. I enjoyed it i just wish it was more the view of the savior.

  • Outstanding

    What an awesome story! Powerfully written with such emotional scenes and strong characters. Most of all I loved the humour resulting from quips or thoughts.
