The Darkest Magic by Morgan Rhodes

Series: Spirits and Thieves, #2

Publication:June 28th 2016 by Razorbill

Goodreads description:
In the second installment of New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes's highly acclaimed Falling Kingdoms spin-off series, danger looms and the mystery deepens as two warring evils vie for possession of one elusive, powerful book.

Modern-day Toronto: Sisters Crystal and Becca Hatcher are reunited after reclaiming the Bronze Codex and narrowly escaping death. They have no one to trust but each other, and the only thing keeping them safe is the book that sent Becca's spirit to Ancient Mytica--the same book that their enemies would kill them for. 

Ancient Mytica: Maddox grapples to keep his newly discovered powers under control, while the ruthless goddess Valoria hunts him down. 

Modern-day Toronto: Farrell embraces his dark side as he unwittingly falls further under the spell of Markus, the mastermind leader of the nefarious Hawkspear Society, who will stop at nothing to find Crys and Becca--and the remarkable book in their possession. 

New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes takes readers into exhilarating new high-fantasy territory with volume two of the Book of Spirits and Thieves series, an epic contemporary saga perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Diana Gabaldon’sOutlander.


My thoughts:
The Darkest Magic is just as fantastic as book one in the series, A Book of Spirits and Thieves, if not even better. I loved this book so much and enjoyed every minute of reading it!

I really liked how we get Becca's point of view in this book. I really like her so it was fun to be in her head this time around.

Maddox and Barnabas' father-son relationship is explored a lot in The Darkest Magic. It is interesting to see them coming to terms with the fact that they are family.

Farrell- his character development was amazing. He goes even darker and gets more intense. I love how morally grey he is. Like is he a good guy or a bad guy, you don't really know and it's so compelling to read about.

Lots of new characters are introduced in The Darkest Magic. Some I really liked and others I'm not really sure about yet. I loved how when a new character was intoduced I never fully trusted them.I was constantly looking out for someone to betray everyone or something. I was so paranoid while reading that one of these new characters were going to stab us in the back. 

There was so much mystery going on in this book, I loved it. It made me never want to put the book down. There is plot twists left right and centre in this one. So many Oh My God moments.

The ending is crazy. I will leave you begging for the next book. I need book 3 ASAP!

My rating:4.5 stars

Thanks for reading,
