Blurb (from Goodreads):
Where is home when you were born in the stars?
Aza Ray is back on earth. Her boyfriend Jason is overjoyed. Her family is healed. She’s living a normal life, or as normal as it can be if you’ve spent the past year dying, waking up on a sky ship, and discovering that your song can change the world.
As in, not normal. Part of Aza still yearns for the clouds, no matter how much she loves the people on the ground.
When Jason’s paranoia over Aza’s safety causes him to make a terrible mistake, Aza finds herself a fugitive in Magonia, tasked with opposing her radical, bloodthirsty, recently-escaped mother, Zal Quel, and her singing partner Dai. She must travel to the edge of the world in search of a legendary weapon, The Flock, in a journey through fire and identity that will transform her forever.
In this stunning sequel to the critically acclaimed Magonia, one girl must make an impossible choice between two families, two homes—and two versions of herself.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
“I’m in the dark again, this time without a song to save me, and then dark is everything I see, everything I know,”
This was a YA fantasy sequel, and I preferred it to Magonia.
Aza wasn’t quite so annoying in this book, and Jason seemed to have her best interests at heart, even if he made some very questionable decisions. The jumping point of view from Aza to Jason did make things a bit hard to follow though.
The storyline in this was about Aza being kidnapped and her biological mother having something to do with it. We did get some good action in this book after a slow start, but there were once again some confusing bits.
The ending to this was okay, and things were tied up nicely.
6.5 out of 10
