Review:

Edited 12/1/2016

I'm going to read something else. Eventually, I promise. It's just not going to be anytime soon. I love this series too much right now. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed with this one.  Don't get me wrong; I still enjoyed it a lot, but after Leaves of Revolution's level of action I feel like it was just hard to match. Blades of Accession was pretty calm and mellow. I felt like the things that happened in it should have been more exciting then what they were. I'm hoping that the introduction of a new character leads to something more interesting down the road.

I do like how it's becoming more and more about the circle of friends, and we're getting a little perspective from the inner circle and not just William and Quinn. I would like to see more perspective from Thomas and Mia, however. We get some, but I think it'd be fun to have a little more from them.

I felt like even the summary on Goodreads was a little lackluster with this one. If I was choosing to read this off of that review alone, and not because I'm invested in the series, I probably wouldn't. So far, this is probably my least favorite book in the series. It's a quick read, and I enjoyed it, but I wasn't as enthralled with it as I was the previous books. I'm still going to start on the next book here soon, but this one didn't have me completely jumping for joy.
