Book Review Of “Court Of Shadows” (House Of Furies Book Two) @AuthorRoux @Harperteen @WunderElena @WunderTanya

From the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum comes the second book in an all-new gothic horror series praised as “darkly delightful.”*

In this second book of Madeleine Roux’s expansive gothic horror series, illustrations from artist Iris Compiet and chilling photographs help bring to life a world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin.

After the frightful events of last autumn, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton has settled into her role as a maid at Coldthistle House, but she has not settled into what that means for her humanity.

As Louisa struggles to figure out whether she is worthy of redemption, the devilish Mr. Morningside plans a fete— one that will bring new guests to Coldthistle House. From wicked humans to Upworlders, angelic beings who look down upon Mr. Morningside’s monstrous staff, all are armed with their own brand of self-righteous justice.

Even a man claiming to be Louisa’s father has a role to play, though what his true motive is, Louisa cannot tell. The conflicts will eventually come to a head on the grounds of Coldthistle House—and the stakes include Louisa’s very soul.

Thank You Wunderkind PR and Harper Teen for gifting me this series in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book a 3.5 Stars

So, as far as second book in a series, this one was pretty darn good. It did a great job of answering my lingering questions from book one, but it also left me with many more questions. I still felt that the character development was on point and I have really enjoyed the world that ROUX has created. It is very easy to get immersed in.

I do also want to point out that the Illustrations in this book are incredible, it makes for such a spooky read, and it really sheds some interesting light into the story. I think I may like this book, better than book One. At this point in the series, I knew mr. Morningside was up to no good, and I found myself staying up late, just to see if I was right.

There were quite a bit of “Oh how the plot thickens” moments in this book, and I LOVED it! I also kind of like the chemistry of Louisa and Morningside. I know, I am crazy.

The emerged from the tree like worms from the Earth.
