After reading The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I knew I was instantly going to start reading the follow-up series called The Harbinger trilogy since I knew it involved Zayne. The main reason I never got overly invested in the love triangle of that book since I knew Zayne was never going to be the love interest for Layla, but for Trinity in this series. But I didn’t really know what the focus of the series was going to be. I avoided looking at the descriptions when I ordered these, so there were no spoilers for either trilogy.
Normally, I review books individually but I got so into reading The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout that I didn’t want to take a break to write reviews of each book. So, I decided to collectively review them similar to how I did with The Fair Isle trilogy… granted that one was because the books were combined. I enjoy the Blood and Ash and Flesh and Fire series from Jennifer L. Armentrout, so I thought I would read other series that she has published in the past. I was planning on reading The Harbinger series since that was another recent series of hers. But I saw it began with The Dark Elements series or at least one character came from there, so to avoid spoilers of that series I started with The Dark Elements.
I love the Blood and Ash series from Jennifer L. Armentrout, so when it was announced she was going to be writing a prequel series called Flesh and Fire I wanted to read it. Especially since it hints at things that happen in the original series. Since the main focus of Flesh and Fire is on Nyktos and his consort, Seraphena (Sera). If you’ve read at least A Crown of Gilded Bones in the Blood and Ash series, you’ll already know the outcome of this series as Nyktos states what happened. However, this series focuses on getting to that point where Gods no longer could wander freely between their realm and the mortal one. And the supposed Dark Age mortals went into because of those events. I don’t think that the last part will be covered in this series, but we know it happens due to this series.
I figured as we’re halfway through the year, I would do a wrap-up of the things that I read. Especially as there were a lot of books that I managed to get through already. I don’t know if I’ll have quite the same amount read in the second half of the year, but you never know. When I get into a good book, I have a hard time putting it down.
The third installment of the Blood and Ash Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout was released called The Crown of Gilded Bones. I read it in a day as I had with the other two books in the series. I could not stop turning the pages in this book. Like the previous books, when I did my review on them, I’m going to be sharing spoilers. I have a lot of thoughts and don’t think I can adequately at this time do a proper review. I will give this book a rating of 4.25 out of 5 stars. In case you want to skip my thoughts to avoid the spoilers. It was good, the worldbuilding was spectacular of how things were handled. And I can’t wait for the next installment.
I saw this tag on Ellie’s blog, Read to Ramble, and she was tagged by Sabrina over at Sabrina’s Booktails, who found this tag on Prutha’s blog, The Confessions of A Music and Book Addict, and after searching through loads of other posts… I can’t find the original author of this tag nor could Ellie. If you know it, please share in the comments. But I wanted to do this tag since it looked interesting and I need something to blog about during the stretches between books. Since I don’t have time to read long books in one sitting at the moment.
