4.5 on my blog. I basically inhaled this book. I felt back at home with Alex and Chase. The magical workings in Rolland's spirit world are sublime. The complex imagery that pops out out of her head is, I think, what grabs me the most. One new character is BRILLIANT! I need to ruminate on this story even for this short Goodreads review because the book is so densely packed with all the good things. I do think that Alex and Chase's relationship is my favorite of all time. A truely satisfying seque ...more

Am I the only one hoping Alex will ditch Chase and give Jonas a chance?

I like the characters and all this detective play, certainly there was a huge amount of stuff to dig out. So many things were discovered right from the start to the very end. I think I wasn't really able to take my hands off the book because it was quite fast-paced and we get to see minor characters become more relevant this time.

After her first year in the afterlife, which was fraught with drama, trauma, and all things sinister, Alex is ready to begin her second year in Eidolon. She looks forward to exploring a world that changes in the blink of an eye, the new abilities afforded to her by her now-limitless mind, and, most of all, finally getting the opportunity, after 17 years of life and 1 year of death, to be with Chase the way she’s always wanted

Posted at Wonderland Novels here! There's also a giveaway!

A. Lynden Rolland's follow up to Of Breakable Things is another adventure into the land of the dead, into the world of Eidolon, where those who couldn't live to the fullest before they died, have a second chance. It's part romance, part mystery, and partially creepy, in an artistic way.

The sequel picks off some time after the incident surrounding Alex Ash, and her revelation that she looks like the prophetess and champion
I simply cannot say enough good things about this book, and the series as a whole. The world - the afterworld - that Amy has created is mind-blowing, intricate, complex, mysterious, thrilling, dangerous, comforting, haunting, epic, familiar, and unlike anything you’ve ever read before. I was stunned when I *finally* read the first book - I had one of those “WHY haven’t I read this sooner?!” moments - and I continued to be stunned in this book. The world-building is absolutely incredible, and I w ...more
