The Overseer’s Stone is destroyed and all of the Scattered Akori are back. That’s exactly what Addy wanted. The part she didn’t bargain for was being swept away, landing in a fascinating world just under the surface of her own.

The search for a way back to Tremain proves to be a monumental task, with a roadblock at every turn. Unimaginable secrets from the past unravel, leaving Addy wondering if there’s anyone she can really trust. 

Will mistakes from Eva and Andrew’s past be the end of them all? Old enemies resurface, forcing Addy and Tanner to make impossible decisions that will change everything. 

Bonds are broken and new connections are forged in Sanctify—book two of the Unbinding Fate Series.

My Review:

This was a brilliant follow up to the first novel in the series. Firman picked up where she left off, continuing the journey that these characters found themselves on, while adding new twists and turns that you didn’t see coming.

Firman is a brilliant storyteller who weaves her words together to create a completely unique and utterly captivating world for her readers to wander through. She brings this solidly built world to life with vivid descriptions and narrative, allowing the reader to easily immerse themselves in the story. She has also created an entire race of people with a history and mythology behind them. They are uniquely one of a kind, yet easy to understand and relate to.

The extremely well developed characters that we met in the first instalment of the series return with a vengeance in this novel. The main characters become much more well-rounded. They grow as individuals as they discover more and more about who they are and who they are meant to be. they interact with each other in natural and supernatural ways that allow you to identify with them and understand who they are and how they feel. The supporting cast of characters is also quite well developed. Although you don’t spend quite as much time with them you get to know the new ones as individuals, and those that you’d previously met return as the same individuals they were when we left them in the first instalment.

As a whole, this novel took a world and a people that I fell in love with and brought me closer to them. With each instalment I fall further and further into the brilliant world created by this phenomenal author.
