Rivers review

This week I went with reviewing a book. It has been awhile since I was able to read for fun with having back to back edits for two different books. I was so happy to get to actually relax and read. I had been waiting for book two of the Orders of the Sky series by Jennifer Rae Gravely, it was released right as I was getting some free time.

Here is my review of Rivers (Orders of the Sky book 2)

I really enjoyed this book. The first book was good but this book was even better!!! It is not often that a sequel outreaches the book before it but this is one of the exceptions to that. Jennifer Rae Gravely managed to pull me into Andie’s story. I hurt with her. I forced myself to stay awake even though my eyes burned from lack of sleep just to get in a few more chapters.

There are characters you will hate, some you will love. I cannot say much more than that because I do not want to give anything away. But Andie’s journey is one I am looking forward to continuing to read. She struggles with real problems, she is flawed and beautifully so. It is so refreshing to see a a main character who is not perfect.

Hopefully, the third book will come out soon.

You can pick it up on Amazon or Barnes and Noble if you want.

    That’s cool that the second title in that series became even better than the first. I found something similar with another author… of course, I’d read the 2nd one first. Not sure if that made a difference. But my thought was: maybe it took one book for that author to get comfortable with the characters and setting.


  2. I am thinking the same thing. Plus with this one the first book the main character is in high school and college. In the second book she is finally out of college and dealing with more serious issues.

    Nice review, Angela. It’ll be interesting to see how the trilogy plays out.


  4. I, too, have seen sequels which are better that the first of a series.Maybe the authors are more relaxed and comfortable with their characters and events,
    It must be some story to have engrossed you so much,Angie!
