Silver Blackthorn is a fugitive from the law.Silver Blackthorn has committed treason.She is dangerous. Do NOT approach her.A large reward is on offer. Report any sightings to your nearest Kingsman.Long live the King.
Silver Blackthorn is on the run. She fled Windsor Castle with eleven other teenagers, taking with her something far more valuable than even she realises: knowledge.
With the entire country searching for the missing Offerings, Silver must keep them all from the vicious clutches of King Victor and the Minister Prime. Until now, no one has escaped the king and lived to tell the tale.
Or have they?
With expectations weighing heavily on the girl with the silver streak in her hair, will she ever find her way home?
This is the second book in the Silver Blackthorn trilogy.
It begins immediately after the first book, with only a little recapping, which was nice because I started this one immediately after finishing the first one, and it would have driven me nuts if there was a lot of recapping.
This book is more about the friendship and the relationship between all the teenagers, their families, and the other people in this world.
It’s pretty similar to most other dystopia trilogies; in this one, not much happens. It’s more character and world building, and setting the scene for the final book.
There’s a love triangle that’s pretty unnecessary, especially since Silver is just dishonest with both guys which is really out of character. It almost feels like the love triangle is there because there’s always a love triangle in these books.
