Wow… I mean, Moribund (book one in the series) was just an adventure I personally enjoyed. But Ouroboros was just as good! The storyline follows on from the ending of Moribund where we re-join the two main characters Syl and Rouen, their powers could ultimately signal the downfall of both of them. Again, the story was action-packed

Fairies from different magic.
Rouen and Syl are an unlikely couple. One dark and one fair fae. They are hoping for a quiet date night but evil forces don't give you a night off.

The tables are turned in the second instalment of the Circuit Fae series. It's Syl magic that wants to harm Rouen, which is a bit of a problem when trying to date. Now Syl is the last sleeper princess, and her power is awake, more fae are interested in her. She has a new suitor that wants a piece of her and doesn't want

I think I would definitely enjoy this series more if I was still a teenager, but at the end of the day I want to read a cute story about lesbian fairies so here I am. This book is just full-up with teen-angst and high school drama and features characters such as the Mean Rich Pretty Cheerleader Villain [TM]. One of the other reviews I read said that this is 'probably the most YA book I've ever read' and I would honestly have to agree with that.

When I read MORIBUND, I didn't think the action, adventure and romance could get any better but DAY-UM Genevieve Iseult Eldredge proved me wrong! OUROBOROS is a roller coaster if awesome. If you love fae, feels and awesomesauce, then DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK! You're welcome.

Ouroboros is the second book in the Circuit Fae series and it's just as awesome as book one. Maybe even more.


I love how much Syl's character has developed over the two books. She's turned into a warrior, from an introvert, geekish girl. 


And contrastingly, Euphoria, or Rouen, has turned from the unbending, dark warrior into a sweet, beautiful soul. 


Add them both, a bit of love, and a whole lot of fantasy filled adventure, and you have Ouroboros. 


The story kept me hooked till the very last page, t

Fresh, fun, and witty! I love that Syl and Rouen fight together against all odds. It's refreshing to read a book where the Lesbian characters actually get to have a relationship. No tired old bury-your-gays tropes here. Finally!

The second Circuit Fae novel, Ouroboros, continues the tale of Rouen and Syl. In the aftermath of events from Moribund, the pair are left hunting down Agravaine's caches of super Moribund. These are called Ouroboros, and can be far more lethal and infectious.

That's not the pair’s only problem either. As the new school year begins, Fiann returns from 'rehab’, and she's out to find the Ouroboros caches too. When a new boy joins the school, things begin to heat up. Aldebaran is a fair Fae, claimin

Ouroboros is the sequel to Moribund and part of the Circuit Fae series.

This book picks up a little bit after the first book ends, having Syl and Euphora prepping for their junior year of high school.

Unfortunately for both, life isn't exactly easy at the moment. Between having to chase down the damage left behind from Agravaine -- the Ouroboros -- and being unable to touch one another for more than a couple of seconds without Syl's powe

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased a hardcopy version of this book for full price.

Unfortunately, life got into the way of me devouring this book as quickly as I did the first one in the series. However, the characters and action are vivid enough that I never missed a beat each time I was able to pick it up and crank some more pages out. Events even ramped up so much in the last quarter that I intentionally set aside an evening to finish it, and my dedicatio

Syl & Rouen/Euphoria are together now, but that doesn't make things easier, not when they are "supposed" to be enemies. And Syl's power is a danger to her girlfriend! They must now fight, not only the Moribund, but an even bigger circuit threat, called the Ouroboros.

The chapters continue to begin with quotes of Glamma's Grimm or Euphoria's songs, a detail I also liked in book 1. Also Eldredge's pop culture references & quirky descriptions plus word play for example smexy or don't-see-me

This book has literally checked off every single item of my checklist called "everything I love in YA literature, or literature in general". You've got fantasy worlds, sarcastic heroines, seasons magic, and more. It definitely caught my attention right from the start from its great potential. I also want to acknowledge how "newcomer" friendly the book is. I never read the first book, but the clear introduction at the beginning of this installment got me

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this ARC in return for an honest review.
Rouen and Syl continue their search for a way to eliminate evil moribund circuitry from their worlds as well as trying to find some way of being together without killing each other. Fiann makes their tasks almost impossible as she infects everything she touches with her own brand of dark magic in her determination to become the first queen of the dark fae. Can she be defeated? Can Syl ever touch

Syl and Rouen are back, having spent the summer hunting down leftover bad stuff from the first book and dreading going back to school. It takes a while to find the main plot, and then it’s a lot like the first one, without the Big Bad, but plenty menacing anyway.
As much as I enjoyed the first one, it wasn’t for the high school drama. Got into the beginning of this one, but it doesn’t take long for the school stuff to start again, and I feel like I just can’t. Still, I enjoy the dialogue and inne

To be fair on Ouroboros, it is better than Moribund. Eldridge did do a lot more with her world building this time around. We see both the UnderHollow and the OverHill, and meet other Dark and Light Fae. It's also a made a little easier to understand how the Moribund functions, even if it would have been better still if the Ouroboros concept had been mentioned in the previous book.

However, I do still have a few issues with the story. While it's well written and immensely readable, the repetition

This series just keeps on giving. I though Moribund and Derailed were great, and this book built on and improved the story of the two season-crossed fae.

I'm not a young adult, but I certainly enjoyed the book.

This second book in the Circuit Fae series DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! I love that it can be read as a stand alone (each one in the series can!), but I just grow more and more in love with Syl and Rouen with each book I read. Their relationship, adventure (and yes, even their conflicts) continue to develop and progress, which makes the series even more riveting. I can't wait to read more!

Similar to the first book in the series, Moribund, I couldn't put this down! I was hooked from page 1. The book begins with Syl and Rouen trying to get two seconds of peace to have a normal date. They don't get many since they are Fae princesses and are busy cleaning up from events after Moribund. Syl is learning to control her newly awakened powers, which can destroy Rouen so she's at risk every time she's near Syl. Throughout all this, they are the only two who can destroy the Ouroboros so the ...more

I found this book really readable. I am sure there are a lot of teens that will immensely enjoy Ouroboros.
The world, to me, has some unique ideas and I wish the author would have taken a bit more time for world building. To be fair, I have not read the first book in the series and I am easily troubled by world building so I do not expect this to be an issue for most readers.

I received a free copy of this book with the option of sharing a review.

After reading the first book, I was really looking forward to learning more about the Dark and Light Fae and watching Syl and Euphoria mature a bit but the author had other plans.

After the events that took place in Moribund, one would think that the girls would get a little bit of a break to build their relationship. Regrettably, it's not in the cards for these two as the events that Aggravaine put into motion during the pre

Really fun, frenetic urban fiction. I love Syl and Rouen as main characters. Although Fiann comes back and is a little tiring at times as the main big bad, its kind of funny that our heroines feel the same way and express it. We also meet a new character, Al, a Summer Prince that wrecks havoc on Syl and Rouen's relationship. And not in the typical ways that often plague YA fiction. Our two protagonists are still very much committed to each other, yet Al insists on butting in in ways that speak t ...more

I really enjoyed this sequel to Moribund. Aldebaran and Fiann are the villains you love to hate! I also enjoyed getting to see more from some of the side characters, like Lennon and Prudence. It feels like there's a lot more story to come with them in future books.

The pacing was quick, with plenty of fun dialogue, and of course some angsty teen romance. This is definitely not a Sophmore slump! I can't wait for book #3.

Ouroboros is the second installment in author Genevieve Iseult Eldredge's Circuit Fae series. The series actually has two main characters: 17-year old Syl Skye, a sleeper Princess of the Summer Court whose powers came to life in the previous installment & Rouen (aka Euphoria) Rivoche, a former Winter Court Princess who was punished by her people to become a Huntress. The story picks up shortly after the first bo

Ouroboros in the second book in the Circuit Fae series. It begins on where Moribund left off. As much as these are wonderful books, I personally recommend every book in the series. Even the prequels. Because once you miss one, you'll certainly feel lost.

Moribund was enjoyable and Ouroboros was also pretty great. Another favorite thing about the series is seeing Syl and Rouen grow. Syl now has her powers. She had blossomed. I ship them! So it was really frustrating to see them like that (not bein

I loved this sequel to MORIBUND! The author thought of a very clever way to have Syl and Rouen be together but to still create a lot of awesome tension between them. Also, the worldbuilding is even more fleshed out, and the action scenes are even more epic. These books rock, too, because they tie up the current story and still leave the reader wanting to know more. She leaves you with questions instead of cliffhangers, so I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!
