This is it. My first read/review of 2019. It also happens to be the first book I’ve read since September, and the first review I’ve written since beginning of October. That’s momentous. So…
Here’s hoping 2020 looks up!
Anyway, back to A Crown of Iron & Silver, it was amazing! I love sleeper series. That’s the kind that starts off slower. It was enjoyable, keeps you interested, but you didn’t really think about it much between installments. The second book was a little better, and this third one was awesome!
I mean, let’s be real, after not reading for months I was primed for enjoyment. My opinion could be skewed. That’s okay. All I know is I was hooked when I picked it back up. I wanted to keep reading. I wanted to keep thinking about it. I remembered exactly why I loved Patrick and Jono. They’re building a family, and their unusual family of dragons, tigers, mages, and oracles is my favorite aspect of the Soulbound series.
One word. Wade.
Wade is my everything. How do you not fall in love with a teenage dragon. (That is a bit of a spoiler if you haven’t read the second book yet. If you chose to read this review I’m going to assume you did.) Wade is spectacular! I would adore a novella following him for just one full day.
The series plot is really ramping up too. The war with the Dominion Sect is heating up. I have so many hopes for Patrick and his past and future, and as many times as we’re told it can’t happen, I want them anyway. Unfortunately this is the part of the review where I get stumped, because I can’t actually talk about any of it. How do you review a UF plot without any spoilers. I mean, I’d just be reiterating the synopsis. Go read that.
It was good. Good execution. Good final battle.
I can’t wait for more.
Man, do I love reading!
