I received a sampler copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers.

The sampler I received was only 100 pages but I was gripped after the first 20. This book is fantastic so far and I really want to continue reading it all asap!
The characters are diverse and strong female leads and the story is intriguing.
This is a must read for Throne of Glass, Game of Thrones or Leigh Bardugo fans!

I got a sampler off of NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

While Im disappointed this was only a sampler, something is far better than nothing. And this something reminded me just how much I adore this series and the lessons LaFevers promotes.

First, "welcome home" this book said to me. Stepping back into the world was like folding into my childhood bed: comfortable, safe, and warm. The familiar characters picking up where we left off was just what I needed today.

Second, I need more! How

I very much enjoyed this sampler of Igniting Darkness. The series continues on with the story of Sybella and Genevieve. With unknown fallout the information she gave up, Genevieve is trying to keep her position with the King as well as fix the mistake and save the lives of the women in the convent. With so many people having strong opinions they want to share with the king, Robin does a great job at keeping them separate so you can't mistake the character's personalities.

I received this as an eSampler to read for free in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Book Group for giving me access.

One thing I really hate about samplers is, THEY ARE NEVER ENOUGH! They know just how to leave you hanging and wanting more.

I cannot wait for this to be published later this year so I can find out what happens next in the end of this duology.

This was a great sample read of the second book in this series. I am excited to read the rest of the novel. Robin LaFevers never disappoints. It was well written and I was excited to dive into this novel.
