Rated Reads


by Wendy Delsol

Rated: Mild

In this sequel to Stork, Katla and Jack are now a couple — but only they know the true depth of their connection. While both of them are learning the depth of their emerging powers, a beautiful stranger threatens to turn their relationship upside down. Katla’s going to have to decide how much she believes in the fantastic world of her gift if she wants to save Jack from the spell he’s under.

I really liked Stork. And I liked this too — Katla is still snarky and a reliably teenager-y narrator. She has as hard a time believing the stuff that happens as we do. But for some reason, this one wasn’t as compelling as the first. Maybe because I just knew where it was going from the first 20 pages? I love the Icelandic folklore and the twist on the average fairy tale theme — but it was almost TOO much thrown at me too fast. I didn’t have enough time to suspend my disbelief. I just wasn’t as thrilled with the journey on this one. Probably won’t finish the trilogy.

Rated: Mild, for a few mild and moderate (“s”-word) cuss words and some kissing.

Corinne Edwards is always happiest when a book is in her hand. If her current read needs to be closed for a short time, either in her backpack while she leads her three rambunctious children on adventures, or on her nightstand while she sleeps, that's okay too. Her book thoughts and reviews land at her bookish blog, The Book Nest.
