Okay, I did like the expansion of the world of Ink, Iron and Glass a bit, but there’s not a lot else going for it.
Worlds collide in this thrilling sequel to the epic, imaginative, acclaimed fantasy Ink, Iron, and Glass.
In an alternate 19th-century Italy, Elsa has an incredible gift: she can craft new worlds with precise lines of script written in books. But political extremists have stolen the most dangerous book ever scribed―one that can rewrite the Earth itself.
Now Elsa must track down the friend who betrayed her and recover the book before its destructive power is unleashed. Can she handle the secrets she’ll uncover along the way―including the ones hiding in her own heart?
So, this book…very much about the teenage angst and drama. I, personally, am not a fan of the angst and the drama, it just drive me up the wall a little bit. I did like seeing Elsa take action. She was very much about going in and trying to save Leo from his family. That was actually a good move on her part, she was proactive.
Other than that, there wasn’t much that I truly enjoyed about this book. It was a good sequel, but if you don’t care for teenage drama or angst, maybe don’t read this series.
What’s the one thing that drives you up the wall concerning reading? Or do you push through anything no matter what? Comment below and let me know!
