I was very hesitant to start this one, given how I felt about the ending of the previous book. The Goodreads reviews for this one were higher than those of the first book, which has to mean it gets better right?

No, it did not get better. This book starts 10 years after the end of the first one, yet somehow Ren was even worse. She had become so manipulative, on top of being a whining child. When she finally meets up with her brother, she couldn’t understand why he hated her so much and why they were no longer close like they used to be.

Unfortunately, I found this book to be not only frustrating, but I was becoming more and more bored with it.

I listened to the audiobook of, “The Empress of Time” and throughly enjoyed this read. This is the second book of a duology by Kylie Lee Baker and is fantasy based with lots of suspense. I loved the love story that is present in this second book, and was not expecting the twists at the end. The twists were so well-done and surprised me as a reader. It felt like characters were pretty mapped out in this second book and the twist knocked me off my feet. I would highly recommend this duology to anyone!
