Half-human, half-alien Eros is the rightful heir to the world throne, but before he can return to the capital, he's abducted by a rebel group of humans who call themselves The Remnant--and won't release him until he swears to help them overthrow the very gov ...more

Checkout my full review on my blog!! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot....

This is everything I wanted in a sequel and more. We are transported back into the world of Eros and Kora. Both are trying to hold on to who they are, while their enemies around them want to tear them down.

Eros is trying to claim is his throne while Kora is trying to secure his claim while things at home are unraveling for the worst. Both must work together in order to preserve the peace while trying to figure out who

* ARC received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review *

This book was totally amazing! It’s been more than a year since I finished Beyond The Red but my anticipation for its sequel has never dwindled. After a long wait, I finally got to read the sequel which turns out to be even more better than the first book. This book was an emotional rollercoaster for me and there are so many twists in this book that I never saw coming. It was

I AM DEAD.

But, in a good way? lol

I am amazed with this book. It surprised the crap out of me, but in the best way possible. I am... dare I say? . . . SHOOK.

Into the Black picks up right where Beyond the Red left us. Things are basically in shambles after the reveal of who Eros truly is. Kora and Eros are separated and the future of the world is looking quite bleak if Eros doesn't become Sira. Kora is working as hard as she can to make this happen

I loved this one even more then the first. I however felt less invested in the 2 POV connection by the end and do not know how excited I am for book 3. The character development was incredible and the dialog between characters was up there with JLA. I think that Kora got the shaft. I know she made mistakes but I am sad to see the direction her POV went. I want more for her. I really hope she gets more in the final book. Sorry about these conflicting thoughts. I still gave this 4 stars and loved ...more

I was lucky enough to win a signed ARC in a Twitter giveaway from Ava Jae themself, and holy Christ I'm so in love with this book! Though I loved Beyond the Red when I first read it, about a year or so ago, Into the Black, the continuation of Jae's trilogious masterpiece of Star Thrones-slash-Game of Star Wars blows its predecessor out of the water, one of the most six-star-worthy books I've read this year - and bear in mind this has been a banner year for YA as it is, but publishing is really s ...more

I thought about this book for awhile, going from a 3 star to a 2 star before I wrote this review. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Kora and Eros relationship had me hooked, regardless of what happened in the end. I was looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds - boy was I disappointed.

MINOR RELATIONSHIP SPOILERS AHEAD
The twist in this second book completely threw me off and I almost stopped reading. Not because of the actual situation but for me it completely did not fit with t

Overall was a good follow up (so glad it didn't just end and they were able to pursue the second..and third). I really loved the dynamic between Eros and Kora in the first book and was sad to see the characters develop beyond that this book.

**SPOILERS***

Big kudos for diversity and inclusiveness, but was not impressed with Eros unannounced bi-sexuality. Had it been hinted at in the previous book (I know not everyone is always thinking about sex, but it would make sense that even someone not tryi

Three and a half stars

A worthy follow up to Beyond the Red with a very big change for Kora and a broader, more diverse cast of characters.

Like the first book, there's an epic science fiction story here with the fate of the world at stake. This book is more focused on Eros who's in the running to be the grand poohbah of the world. Kora is there to guide him on what's ahead, but then her story takes a turn to give her something much more active. (I definitely didn't see that coming.)

***Minor spoilers***

Into the Black makes a very worthy sequel to Beyond the Red. Whereas the first book focused mostly on Kora’s troubles as ruler and her need to find a husband, this one focuses on Eros and his campaign for the throne of Safara.

I actually liked Eros more in this book than I did in BTR. I think seeing him interact with his nephew Mal shows off his compassionate side more. Kora also has a lot of character development as she navigates her strained relationships with her brother a

Into The Black is the sequel to Beyond The Red, written by author/blogger Ava Jae. I gave the original book five stars, so I was eager to read this one also.

At the beginning, I wasn't quite sure that I would like this book as well as I liked the first. Jae uses some terms in her writing (kinduf, sortuf, fucken, and some others) that pulled me out of the story when encountering them - however, that turned out to be a short-term problem and I stopped having a problem once I got 50-100 pages into t

This isn't a solid review. This is just my thoughts immediately after finishing this book. I'll eventually write a full-bodied review.

I really enjoyed this sequel. I loved Eros with every page, seeing him struggle and fight and protect what's left of his life, immersing myself in his self-discovery. I enjoyed seeing Kora's development, although I didn't agree with her choices every step of the way. I was also pleasantly surprised by the queer representation. (view spoiler)

This was an interesting scenario: The world ruler is dead and his outcast and half-caste son is in line. The novel covers a short period after the death of the ruler to the new version. It is, to me at least, overly lengthy and boring in places - which I skim read, but the notion of sucession on a different planet with its culture, rules and regulations was interesting. Shorten it by 30% (and remove a % of the detailed emotions) and it would have been better. Hey, I am a guy.

This book has amazingly deep, lush worldbuilding with so many details. The voices in it are great, especially Eros. I loved the character development for both main characters, and especially enjoyed the addition of Deimos as a side character. Certain relationships evolved (no spoilers!), and I felt that was natural, especially given the circumstances. Finally, I particularly loved the inclusiveness. Highly recommended!
