This book was a mess. Congratulations, book, on being my worst read of 2017.

It's like we tried to follow the momentum of Nemesis's cliffhanger until the 40% mark where everyone in the writer's room decided, "Screw it -- let's finish off the shrooms, then write the rest of the book with our toes." Which leaves us with the first draft fan fiction that is Ally.

WHAT WENT WRONG

I really did enjoy the sequel to Nemesis and I do recommend both books, however, Ally seemed a little rushed in places and what could have been great build ups to some powerful events simply didn't happen. Some things that did happen didn't have any strength behind them and I feel these lead to mis-opportunities for the reader.

I love the characters, both Tarik and Sepora both have strength and I readily believed in their roles. I loved the story line, the worlds are amazing and the plot just

2,5*, I am a bit sorry tho!

I started this book with being sure I wouldn't like it because I didn't like the first book at all but after 100 pages I had to admit that it wasn't so bad.
Sounds good? Wait.
After another 100 pages I realised it isn't actually good. It was kinda bad because so much things happened and none of them where explained the way they should be. This book should have been way much longer and the relationship between our main characters was also pretty bad and annoying to read.

*Thoughts*

Ally, by author Anna Banks, is the second part of the Nemesis duology. One final time we dive back into the lives of Princess Sepora of Serubel and King Tarik of Theoria. Banks alternatives each chapter between the two characters, which pretty much means they get equal storylines. As the story picks up, Sepora has chosen not to Forge any more spectorium, but there are those who are eager for her to continue. Like her own father.

3.5 stars.

Even though I extremely love the characters in this duology, I feel like a lot of things within this story-line should've been developed more since there's a lot of awesome elements presents, which isn't being talked about much so that feels kind of superficial?

It felt like a bit too much of everything put within this one final book that might've been better off being written over the expanse of at least two books I think. There's so much more I've wanted to explore; the different ki

*REVIEW UPDATE*
—————————

Whooo first book I have finished this year! I hit a reading slump and I didn’t even realise that this book had been released, so i was extremely excited to begin the sequel to a book which I didn’t expect to enjoy so much.

We start off the story where nemesis ended. Sepora is now set to marry Tarik -the Falcon King- Queen Hanlyn and King Erin -Seporas parents- are now residing in Theoria, in the Palace. The quiet plague is still causing d

I had my doubts about reading this book after Nemesis just wasn't a great read for me, and honestly I probably should have listened to them. Ally continues the story set forth in the first book, now with tensions high between Sepora and Tarik as they try to do best by their people and their hearts.

And I honestly couldn't care about any of it.

For starters, it took half the book for something to happen. That's a lot of pages to fill and it was taken over by alternating chapters of the two lamentin

"Ally" was a fantastic sequel to Nemesis and wrapped up the series perfectly- I'm really sad to see how cleanly it was all completed, because I've grown to love these characters. Here, we witness the aftermath of the engagement of Sepora and Tarik and the five kingdoms on the verge of war. There are a lot of twists and turns that I did not anticipate here, so I won't say too much about the plot so as to avoid spoilers.

Sepora and Tarik both grow as characters in this book, and we again get the c

Rating: 5 Stars

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Ally for an honest review.

Ally is everything I could possibly want in a final book! It has action, magic, snark, and romance. I love all the characters and especially Sethos (can’t wait to get more from him). This book is mostly told from a rotating POV. This is a must read that is such a cool, unique, fun, fantasy

I LOVED the first book but this definitely topped it!! It was incredible. This book is filled with more politics, more kingdoms and cultures and kickbutt women! It wasn't perfect but I still had so much fun reading it! Go read this duology guys it's so good.



Note to author:CAN THERE PLEASE BE A SPINOFF FOLLOWING OTHER KINGDOMS IN THIS SAME WORLD!!! I would specially like to see the women kingdom with dragons be featured in a spinoff, or following the weather ma

I really have to stop reading books, especially firsts in a series, when the next one doesn't come out for months and months. Crap. Also, not a big fan of the cover, I was really hoping for Tarik, similar to Sepora on the first one.

I want to make it very clear I feel baited by this book.

Because for at least half the book I felt like it was going to be absolute shit. It was 150 pages of rehashing the same bland, boring character who distinctly lack personality or anything interesting, melded in with a plot that seemed to be veering off course suddenly while simultaneously going no where at all, all the while the writing was as uninspired, mediocre, and predictable as usual. Oh, Anna Banks, you never fail to remind me what a

I received this ARC from a fellow blogger in a fair trade. This review is completely voluntary and honest, nor was I compensated for my opinions.

While I had a hard time getting into Nemesis, that was not the case for the followup, Ally! Anna Banks starts things off with a bang and there was a nice run of action, tension, and buildup! For me it was a far more engaging read and I couldn’t get enough of it!

Sepora and Tarik are set to get married, but as Tarik was a bit deceptive and his motives not

Disappointment of the year.
What happened there!?
This was no comparison to the first book...
Was this really written by the same author!?

Everything was so off! The people behaved weird, some scenes were so freaking weird, the plot was weird, the romance was weird 😒

I‘m so disappointed. I really liked the first book and I think the world is interesting, but geez. I read half the book before I couldn’t stand it any longer and I just skimmed through the rest.

So let's be clear the romance was awful in this book. I like some angst and all but come on, there were both idiots at the end.
Neitherless, I really like the world building and the politic plot.
