Igniting Darkness offers political intrigue, romance, and gorgeous writing about assassins that just so happen to be young women. It’s amazing! Robin LaFevers writes a beautiful story in her second book about Sybella and Genevieve. The first book ends with Gen following through with her plan to be with the King. She ultimately ruins everything the convent stands for and puts everyone in danger. I’ll admit, I was very ticked off with Gen and her woe-is-me attitude. Sybella, as usual, is perfection. Her character is everything I want to be and more. I felt like Genevieve could have learned a thing or two from her. If you can’t tell, I’m still not a big fan of her. The story actually lagged in a few places, and at times I had to put the book down because it got stale. Luckily, I was able to find a happy medium with how everything wrapped up and ended. Huge shout out to Beast, who is honorable and loyal as they come. Overall, if you’re a fan of Grave Mercy and enjoy historical fiction, you don’t want to miss out on this gorgeous duology!
