“I would go toe to toe with anyone who argued books weren’t life savers. They were the work of whatever god kept us functional when the world seemed too hard to handle. They were the air when we couldn’t breathe. The blood when it wouldn’t pump in our veins. The beat of our heart when we were done trying to force life to go on. Books saved lives. End of story, pun intended.”
Why I chose this?
Although I gave the last book (it’s here) 3 stars I was actually quite looking forward to this one. Especially after that ending.
What it’s about
Year Two at the Academy! The year of purple.
Maddison James learned a lot about life last year. Only important stuff, of course. Like how to breathe under water, how to turn an arrow into a weapon, and how to fall in love.
Asher Locke. The one who stole her heart. The one who showed her the truth of her past and … hopefully her future.
Now it’s just time for them to live happily ever after.
Only the gods have different plans. And with Atlantis rising, Maddi isn’t sure she’ll survive long enough to even finish her second year, let alone have any sort of future.
Even worse, the sadistic Atlantean gods want to break her before they kill her. But Maddi has been underestimated before, and she has hidden strengths they’ll never see coming.
Year of purple … bring it on.
On this cover I love that her hair is a pastel purple colour and that you can see that she is trying to control her powers by having two orbs of water in her hands. The colours work really well together and you can clearly see that they are making it look like its part of the series.
What I Thought
First of all Jaymin I’d just like to say
It’s fine I didn’t need it anyway. I was not prepared for that at all. Like seriously how could you do that. It’s taken a good couple of weeks to recover from that.
So first of all the year of purple to me was so much more than the year of pink (almost wrote punk but that wouldn’t have been bad either).
Maddi is a little more uptight in this but I believe it was within reason with what had gone on in book one then the event in book two took it to a whole different level. Her and Asher gave me whiplash in this book. I couldn’t keep up with his brooding to cheerfulness.
I really wish I could go further into this but I’m really conscious about spoilers because there is so much that goes on in this . I was nice that we got to meet up with some familiar characters from one of Jaymin’s other series
If there is one thing I don’t like about this book is the length of time between this book and the final one.
