Hey guys , I’m here with my review for myths and mortals sequel for smoke and summon. Second book for numina trilogy. More and more of sandis and Rone. Let’s start.
Title : Myths and Mortals
Author : Charlie . N. Holmberg
Series : Numina Trilogy
Sandis has escaped Kazen’s grasp, but she finds herself unmoored, reeling from her thief friend Rone’s betrayal.
Kazen has been hurt but not stopped, and he’ll do anything to summon the monster that could lay waste to the entire world. Sandis knows she must be the one to stop him, but with her own trusted numen now bound to another, and finding herself with no one she can trust, she is in desperate need of allies. Rone seems determined to help her, but Sandis has no intention of letting him get close to her again. What she doesn’t know is how much Rone gave up to protect her. Or how much more he is willing to give up to keep her safe.
As chaos mounts, Sandis must determine whom to trust. After all, the lines between enemy and ally have never been less clear…and corruption lurks in the most unlikely of places
Aah ! The pain of reading and suggesting a really amazing underrated novel!
Here’s my review for Smoke and Summons (#1 of numina trilogy) if you guys wanna read it.
Anyway , we travel with Rone and Sandis where we left off in Smoke and Summons.
Kazen on loose , Riggers and Grafters on the chase , Sandis and Rone have much more to run from before they even think of making up to each other.
Myths and mortals started off kinda slow but (thankfully) didn’t have the second book syndrome. The plot wasn’t mainstream but Charlie managed to keep us in the edge of the kindle or page (lol) 24×7.
Sandis and Rone had a lot of issues to go through while running and hiding and chasing. We meet a lot of characters on the way old and new. Bastien is one of them. He is another fellow vessel and a really underrated character. He’s loyal and aaamazing. Just as smoke and summons , we have a lot of underrated characters , dialogues and moves. I’ll try to cover them as much as possible.
Rone and Bastien bonding moments were just outright hilarious (for us) like this.
“Raisin’ the raisins.” Rone crooked an eyebrow. “What?” Bastien shrugged. “It’s a joke.” Rone hesitated before saying, “That . . . was a really bad joke.”
Sandis had loads of character development even though she’s irritating at times.
Half of her wanted that door to open. The other half wanted to bar it shut and set a match to the entire flat.
And ofcourse , sandis × Rone relationship was OTP (heart eyes , heart eyes) af.
Sandis could hate him, hit him, berate him. But he couldn’t leave her.
I’ll follow you anywhere, Sandis. To the Arctic Ribbon or the heart of hell.
There is a new character who is almost a replica of Yara Greyjoy from GoT.
Don’t ask me again, or I’ll break your fingers.
Other than the above mentioned amazing things , the plot and world building is awesome. We explore everywhere in a different perspective.
And as usual we have the characters we want to kick their asses and the mysterious ones. Of course, a cliffhanger which wants us craving for more.
