Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol

The Book✯✯✯✯✯

With literally thousands of reviews on GoodReads and Amazon, Secondborn really doesn't need my voice to add to all the praise, but I'm going to add it anyways. Especially because I have been approved to read its sequel, Traitor Born, in advance.

Though I enjoyed it tremendously, I will warn you that it tends to get a little hectic at times. It doesn't take away from the story, though. In fact: it adds to the idea that everything is crazy for Roselle from the moment the book begins. No characters are 2D. No scenes are wasted and everything has a purpose. This is rarely found in New Adult, and it is important to commend Bartol for it.

I was thrust into a world that was as if Hunger Games and Red Rising got together and had a baby, and I don't ever want to leave.

Pick this one up, you won't be disappointed.

I revived this ARC as an Amazon Prime First Reads benefit. 


  1. Thanks for the cool review. I have not read this series, so it is definitely a good recommendation to me.

  2. I like an active story as long as it isn't tiresome

  3. Sounds very interesting! I might have to look into this one!

  4. I just picked up a copy :) Can't wait to get started. Great review!

  5. Wow what a strong endorsement. The list of books I want to read is getting quite long. LOL I need to be able to freeze time just to read.
