The Iron Flower Reviews
If you like added gifs, you can also check out my review here! =)
If you liked the first, chances are you’ll like the sequel. It carries on in the same vein as the first with predictable plot progression but an unfortunate lack of character growth. Grammatically, I have zero issues. The book was actually very well written. My inner English major was content that I didn’t have any hang-ups that pulled me out of the story. And story-wise, the characters and plot are consistent with what was establi ...more
DNF at 33 %
So not the rating I thought I was going to be giving this book, I was pretty sure that this would have been a 5 star, boy was I wrong. Gorgeous cover though, so that's something.
To start off, I'm not giving this 1 star, despite having dnf-d it, because I only save 1 stars for books I really did not like. And I just didn't care for Iron Flower, it's not a bad book, but it isn't a book for me, unfortunately. The Black Witch was though, so I honestly have no idea how the book w ...more
Busy editing The Iron Flower today - very excited to share the continuing story with you all in 2018 - thank you to all my readers for so much support and enthusiasm for this series and its anti-prejudice message. #grateful (and I can't wait to share the cover with you).
I received an e-arc copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
It feels wrong not address what happened to the first book in this series. The Black Witch (TBW) got a lot of undeserved negative feedback, almost unanimously coming from people who did not take the time to read the book themselves to form their own opinions and simply went ahead rating the book one star while all linking back to the same review. This flew in the face of book reviewing conventions and promoted ...more
This was a very entertaining, creative, and fantastical sequel to "The Black Witch".
In this follow-up, I continued to really enjoy the unique world that was created. Laurie Forest truly created a unique world of her own and the world-building was exemplary in that all of the background was explained in detail. With that being said, there were moments that that novel felt longer than necessary, but I appreciated the attention to detail.
This novel's storyline progressed and developed much differen ...more
***** 4.5 Stars *****
Cannot be read as a standalone.
I want to cry right now....
I want to cry because the next book isn't available yet!!!
The Iron Flower is even better than the first book. All the characters are wonderfully written, and the relationship between Elloren and Yvan is so heartfelt.
This story is dark and ugly. High Priest Marcus Vogel rules the land and plans on purifying the race and conquering neighboring territories. It isn't safe anywhere, and Elloren and her diverse group of fr ...more
ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS
I didn't like Elloren that much in the first book but the story was great so I was definitely looking forward to reading The Iron Flower.
