A review by saraanneb3
As the Shadow Rises by Katy Rose Pool


Well while this one is better than the first one, it has a way more convoluted ending and so it's still a 3.
I love Jude and Anton and I love how the author explores someone like Ephyra who is trying to do what she thinks is right and yet it is so wrong, and the despair she comes to feel.
But this needed way more world building and it seems like too much happens too fast. Also the characters evidently have the worlds' MOST expressive eyes based on the sheer volume of knowledge and information the other characters gather from one another's eyes haha.
Also i cannot believe how stupid Hassan is, which ai guess serves to highlight the intelligence of the other characters? Anyhow he is astonishingly stupid
