Synopsis

WARNING: THIS IS A REVIEW ABOUT THE SECOND BOOK IN THIS DUOLOGY. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR BOOK ONE!

Maia Tamarin proved her skill as a tailor when she wove the dresses of the sun, the moon, and the stars, but it will take more than a beautiful gown to hide the darkness rising up within her, in the stunning sequel to Spin the Dawn.

Maia Tamarin’s journey to sew the dresses of the sun, the moon and the stars has taken a grievous toll. She returns to a kingdom on the brink of war, while Edan, the boy she loves, is gone – perhaps forever.

No sooner does she set foot in the Autumn Palace than she is forced to don the dress of the sun and assume the place of the emperor’s bride-to-be. But the emperor’s rivals learn of her deception, and there is hell to pay – yet the war raging around Maia is nothing compared to the battle within.

Ever since she was touched by the demon Bandur, she has been changing: losing control of her magic, her body and her mind. It’s only a matter of time before Maia loses herself completely, but until then she will stop at nothing to find Edan, protect her family, and bring lasting peace to her home.

My opinion 

Of course, is this only my personal opinion on the book and just because I give this rating to the book doesn’t mean, that everyone will have that opinion.

„Unravel the Dusk“ takes place right after the events from the first book. There were hints about the earlier plot but I was still glad, that I read it right after „Spin the Dawn“.
The writing style and further world-building were as great as in book one! I liked the tone that the author was using.
I also enjoyed the plot but it was a little bit weaker than the first book in my opinion. It was still really nice to read but it did not catch me like the first book.
I liked the ending a lot and I shed a few tears.
What i especially liked was the teaser for the next book from the author „Six Crimson Cranes“. They were a few cool hints in „Unravel the Dusk“ and I cant wait to read this new series from her.

Conclusion

A nice finish for an interesting duology.

I give  4,5 from 5 Stars 

See you later,
