Garden of Thorns Sequel is to DIE For! (Review)

Like flowers denied water, people are wilting under the emperor's tyranny.

Rose will not rest until the Gardener is dead. But there are bigger battles to fight, and Rayce—leader of the rebellion and the only man Rose has ever loved—believes their best chance at winning the war is to join forces with her sworn enemy.

Saving innocent people is more important than her quest for revenge. But their new ally can’t be trusted—and he knows her darkest secret. One betrayal could leave the war and Rayce’s life hanging in the balance, and Rose will need to make the ultimate sacrifice to save them all.

Amber Mitchell jumps back into the political upheaval of her YA fantasy romance series with the next amazing installment, War of the Wilted. The Zareeni rebellion is holding the Gardener captive and pumping him for an advantage over the Emperor. In a twist, Rose and Rayce are at odds and it seems as though the rebellion is heading towards its final fight with dwindling numbers and sabotaged missions.

The story picks up where Garden of Thorns ended. I would suggest a re-read of the first book just to refresh your memory on the major players and the little facts that impact the story. Rose's true identity, which she keeps a secret from everyone except Rayce, presents an internal challenge for her on top of the issues that stem from keeping the Gardener prisoner. The gamut of emotions that Rose experiences in this story kept me on the edge of my seat because her frame of mind kind of clued me in to when the plot was about to pick up or whether she was about to get herself in trouble. I constantly felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop as Rose struggled with the path Rayce was leading the rebellion down and what her role in the future would be if the rebellion succeeded.

War of the Wilted is heavy with action as it completes another chapter in Rose and Rayce's story. I was eager to see how this story ended and Amber Mitchell did not disappoint! There are a couple of pretty epic surprises at the end that even managed to make me gasp in wonder. This is a must-read adventure for all YA fantasy fans!
