Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I adored The Warrior Midwife so as soon as I got my hands on the sequel, I had to get stuck in right away!
Saraya and Drake find themselves in a different world to their own after the events of the first instalment. The sequel was just as action-packed as the first, with even higher stakes. Drake’s memories have been returned and with them, the knowledge of the extent of his power. As Drake has now been promised to Saraya, their marriage is underway and the new deity wants to unleash Drake’s powers.
‘Small steps were small wins.’
I really can’t say much without spoiling this book, but know it gets just a little spicier than the first! Draka and Saraya’s romance continues to burn and the tension is perfect! I also loved the focus on female empowerment and Saraya’s transition into a Priestess and can’t wait to see how powerful she gets in the next book!
‘I would destroy the entire world for you.’
Whilst I didn’t love this book quite as much as the first, it was still a solid sequel and I definitely recommend this series if you love fae fantasy romances!
‘I was made to worship you.’
