Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets, mistakes she’s spent years trying to forget, and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away.
With fellow rebels on her side—including Princess Aislynn, Thackery, and the handsome and mysterious Matthias—it is time for Elanor to make a decision. Will she protect her secrets? Or risk everything to save the people she loves?
The thrilling companion to Elissa Sussman’s masterful and original fairy tale, Stray, that will appeal to readers of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and fans of Wicked, Into the Woods, and the Disney princess movies.
My Thoughts: I debated between giving this one a 3 or 4 cupcake rating. I liked it but I didn’t like it as much as the first one, Stray.
We are reintroduced to Elanor. You may remember her vaguely from Stray. When I started this one I didn’t know it was more of a companion than a sequel, but I still liked it.
Well, Elanor is out to make the world a better place and to force Josetta out of rule just like many others. She’s a great fighter and a true leader. We also meet a new boy named Matthias. I was so happy once he became a big part of the story. The first part of the book he isn’t really around very much. I just loved his personality and the way he talked.
I also loved the secondary characters. So many of them I just enjoyed the time with.
I really liked Elanor as a character. She was brave but also really nice. She stood up for herself a lot now! She has gotten really strong!
Overall: I liked this one! I think I did like Stray a little bit more but I enjoyed Burn as well. I want to know more about Mathias! I really liked him!
Cover: Like it! Its pretty!
