Secondborn | Review
If you’re not familiar with Amy A. Bartol, you need to be! I loved both her Premonition and Kricket Series. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Secondborn as a Kindle First book for July, as I didn’t know Bartol had a book coming out this year! So of course I snatched it up and began reading.
Secondborn follows the story of Roselle, the second born child in a prominent family. Her older brother, Gabriel, is destined to lead the family, while Roselle will go on to be in the military, as the second children in every family go into servitude on their 18th birthday.
I immediately fell in love with Roselle and found her very likable and relatable. The world building was fantastic, as was all the cast of characters. I was really intrigued by Agent Crow, and I do feel like there is more to that story, so we’ll see!
My dislikes for Secondborn stems from the fact that so far, it does have a lot of similarities to the Kricket Series. And the pacing was off at times, with stops and starts to the otherwise great plot.
Rating: 4 stars
