Shadow & Flame (Rime Chronicles #2) Blog Tour | Review & Giveaway!

June 8, 2019 / Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway / 0 Comments

I’m so excited to be taking part in the Shadow & Flame (Rime Chronicles #2) Blog Tour today! Book #1 Onyx and Ivory was one of the best books I read last year! If you haven’t already seen it, here’s my review for it, where I gush and gush. Today I’m sharing my review of Shadow & Flame, along with an awesome (INT) giveaway!

~My review~

Because Shadow & Flame is the second book in the Rime Chronicles, I’m going to try and make this review vague so if you haven’t read book one – what the heck are you waiting for?! – you’re not spoiled.

Book one in the Rime Chronicles, Onyx & Ivory, was one of my top 2018 reads. The things I loved most about it was:

  1. It had zero info-dump
  2. A great mystery
  3. A great cast of characters
  4. A romance worth rooting for

I devoured Onyx & Ivory in one day, and one sitting, therefore when I was given the chance to receive an early copy of Shadow & Flame, I leapt at it. I was dying to see what was coming next for my newest fav couple Kate and Corwin, and to learn more about the world of Rime.

The things I loved most about Shadow & Flame was:

  1. No slow build-up. This story began with a prison heist, which set the perfect fast-paced tone for the rest of the book.
  2. A new, juicier villain/mystery. If I didn’t have obligations like work, I probably would have finished this book in one day/one sitting like I did its predecessor. I was hooked!  
  3. Tissues were required. It’s easy to become invested in Arnett’s Rime characters, and in this latest book, they experience a lot. Happy moments, confusing moments, triumphant moments, desperate moments, and heartbreaking moments, and I was right there experience it all with them.  
All in all Shadow & Flame was a great sequel, and I’m really looking forward to future works by Mindee Arnett!
