The second installment in the New York Times bestselling series "made for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Sabaa Tahir" (Bustle), Lady Smoke is an epic new fantasy about a throne cruelly stolen and a girl who must fight to take it back for her people. The Kaiser murdered Theodosia's mother, the Fire Queen, when Theo was only six. He took Theo's country and kept her prisoner, crowning her Ash Princess--a pet to toy with and humiliate for ten long years. That era has ended. The Kaiser thought his prisoner weak and defenseless. He didn't realize that a sharp mind is the deadliest weapon. Theo no longer wears a crown of ashes. She has taken back her rightful title, and a hostage--Prinz Soren. But her people remain enslaved under the Kaiser's rule, and now she is thousands of miles away from them and her throne. To get them back, she will need an army. Only, securing an army means she must trust her aunt, the dreaded pirate Dragonsbane. And according to Dragonsbane, an army can only be produced if Theo takes a husband. Something an Astrean Queen has never done. Theo knows that freedom comes at a price, but she is determined to find a way to save her country without losing herself. Praise for the Ash Princess Series: "A darkly enchanting page-turner you won't be able to put down."--Bustle "A smart, feminist twist on a traditional tale of a fallen heroine, with plenty of court intrigue, love, and lies to sweeten the deal. Good luck putting this one down." --Virginia Boecker, author of The Witch Hunter series "This searing page-turner is a compelling examination of the complexities of both evil and resistance."--Sarah Porter, author of Vassa in the Night "A dark and spellbinding epic." --Sara Holland, New York Times bestselling author of Everless "A rebel queen fans the sparks of revolution...[and] Theo's first-person narration remains enthralling with emotional immediacy...[while] packed to the brim with intrigue and the promise."-Kirkus Reviews… (lisätietoja)

**spoiler alert** While I liked this book, there were parts that I wished would have moved a little faster. I know it was necessary for the character development and the planning however it did get a little slow. I must say, the ending twist is the BEST part of this book. No one expected Cress's betrayal or Theo going into the fire mine! So interested to see how the mine changes her. ( )

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/01/01/my-november-in-bo...

I liked it, I guess.

I wasn't particularly excited for this, because of the love triangle, and I was rightly worried. The love triangle played a pretty big role, and I still don't like Blaise. Honestly, for me, it's either Soren or no one.

Other parts of this book.....searching for a suitor was a really interesting part of this, and I loved it. Except for the deaths.Why did Hoa have to die?!?!?! Why?!!?? And the guy who she was going to marry, that brother(can't remember his name), why did he have to die!?!? Things were going perfectly alright, and then you had to go on and kill him.

Also, I loved the meeting the rebels part of this. And the part where Erik came back. In fact, all the scenes with Erik. And the ones with Erik and Heron. Oh God, those were the best!!! I really don't care a lot about Theo's romance at this point; I'd just like to see Heron and Erik together.

The Kaiser and the Kaiserin...what should I even say?I didn't like that the Kaiser died so...underwhelmingly. And Cress was the one to kill him. I really wanted a good scene with Theo killing him, but, well, beggars can't be choosers. (Brain: I don't think that saying was the correct usage)(Me: I don't care, it sounds nice)

About the ending I am pretty curious about what will happen to Theo, and what she will do with her powers. I also really want Soren back. So, I just really want minimum drama, and maximum badassness from the next one.

I am eager to read the next one, and I hope it doesn't have even more of that love triangle; I'm sick of it. Also, I really want Theo to come to terms with her powers, because this constant denial isn't working for me. It's pretty obvious since the first book, but still it takes her so long to accept the possibility that she might have powers. ( )

This book is a lot more predictable than the first one.

- The poison thing is in-your-face obvious, I can't believe the time it took for our queen to realize it. Since the Archduke died, no, since they talked about Coltania being a scientist. It's so goddarn obvious.
- I feel like the conversations between Theo and Blaise are just fillers. It's so repetitive that I just want them to kill Blaise, just to get it over with.
- I would've liked more appearances from Empress Giosetta. Not romantic scenes, too much of that already, I don't want a harem. I would've liked her and the Archduke to join the fight against the Kalovaxians.
- Kaiser's death is shocking but unsatisfactory.

What I liked:
- Cress being more powerful than Theo. I know Theo's gonna be more powerful after that epilogue but I liked that Cress is more powerful at first.
- Coltania's death. I've been waiting for them to realize that she's the killer that when Theo killed her, I shouted 'FINALLY!!'.
- Dragonsbane telling Theo about her mother.

2.75 stars.

Will still read the last book.

- I'll also read a book with Artemisia as the heroine. TBH, I like her more than Theo.

In which Theo leads her band of merry rebels into five-hundred pages of diplomacy, disillusionment, and not actually spending that much time considering husbands. ( )

This novel picks up where Ash Princess left off and provides new challenges for Theo and her allies, which include an imprisoned Prince Soren. Her aunt and pirate captain has arranged a potential alliance for Theo - on the condition that she select a partner to marry. Despite opposing marriage on principle, Theo finds herself playing along - and entertaining a legion of suitors - in the hopes of gaining an ally with an army. While she's theoretically free of the kaiser's court, there are plenty of schemes and poison going around. Fun reading and I will look forward to returning to Theo's world in the next volume. ( )
