Blightborn Review

Blightborn - Chuck Wendig

5/5 stars
*Disclaimer: I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Are you looking for a book that will crush your soul into a million pieces, not just once, but multiple times throughout the pages? If you answered yes then this is definitely the book for you. I’m not even kind of joking. At one point I actually set my kindle down with tears in my eyes and quietly asked “Why Chuck, why are you doing this to me?!” to my empty room.

That being said this IS the second book in the series so I’ve decided not to talk about what happens throughout the book. My review for the first book in the series, Under the Empyrean Sky, is located here. Just know if you do read Under the Empyrean Sky and like it that this one is better than its predecessor. Seriously I liked the first book a ton, I told everyone who came within a five mile radius of me that it was great and that I needed to get my hands on the second book immediately. And now I’m DYING inside not having any one to talk about this series with. Please, for the love of Jeezum Crow (you’d understand if you read it :() read the book so I can talk about it with somebody.

Again there were minor flaws throughout that I noticed but very, very few and as it is an uncorrected proof it’s safe to assume those miniscule issues would be corrected if you purchased the kindle copy. I can see why someone may have issues with this book but for me everything worked. The relationships, amazing, the jumpiness that comes with multiple POV, super well done, and the dialogue, I loved it to bits. This trilogy was one I started on a whim because of an interesting cover featuring a floating city above a cornfield and has become dear to my heart. Now to find a copy of the final book in the series, The Harvest.
