Premise:

“Maybe that was the trick to it: to survive, to dare to stay alive, to forge your own hope when all hope had run out.”

Rule of Wolves is the sequel to King of Scars, and the most recent book in the Grishaverse. This book is nearly impossible to describe without spoiling a previous book in this universe, but it follows our main three characters as they deal with the aftermath of the King of Scars ending. Plus some twists. There’s war, monsters, magic, and romance.

Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare Review. 5 Stars.

My Thoughts: I knew I would love Chain of Gold. I put off reading it because I knew I wasn’t emotionally prepared. I was right.

About the Book: Chain of Gold is the first book in a new Shadowhunter series! This book takes place in the early 1900’s, following the children of the main couple from The Infernal Devices series, as well as some new faces (with some recognizable names).
