The Savior’s Sister takes place in the fictional realm of Thessen and follows Leila Tūs Salvatíraas — The Savior of Thessen and magical Queen of Her realm.
The Savior’s Sister takes place during the course of the Sovereign’s Tournament as featured within TSC and is from Leila’s perspective as She uncovers Her father’s treacherous plans to overthrow Her and tries to unravel a network set upon bringing about Her demise.
But when Leila falls in love with one of the tournament competitors, She must save Her realm, Her people, and Her one true love before chaos, corruption, and destruction ensues.
Review of The Savior’s Sister
The Intro: The Savior’s Sister starts out strong as I was able to get a glimpse into Leila’s childhood during the prologue of the novel, and how her experience has made her blossom into a strong and mature leader, which becomes the fire to fuel her motivation to take back her realm.
I enjoyed being reintroduced to Leila’s character, was keen on learning more about her background, and loved her sassy, confident, and outspoken demeaner.
The Middle: Much like The Savior’s Champion, The Savior’s Sister takes place during the course of the Sovereign’s Tournament as we meet characters both new and old who are either likeable, detestable, or somewhere in between.
As we shift from the dichotomy of characters ranging from the tournament competitors to the palace staff that are introduced or reintroduced, there are characters that you can trust, those you can’t trust, and those whose loyalties where you’re not sure lies
Of course, Leila remains my favorite character within TSS, and Delphi and Pippa are among my favorite within the The Savior’s palace.
The End: Now, if you’ve read TSC, then you know how the tournament plays out, but with that being said, the ending leaves us with a twist that will fuel the plot for the next book in the series.
There were enough questions answered to wrap up the main plot for book two in The Savior’s Series, but there are still more questions left to be explored within the next book in the series.
The Gruesome: While the The Savior’s Sister is nowhere near as gruesome as TSC, there are still moments within the book where I am like “Damn. Well, that sucks for that person.” But yes, there will be some bloodshed throughout the novel.
The Recommendation: As with TSC, this book is for anyone who likes dark fantasy adventure mixed in with romantic goodness, for anyone who enjoys magical elements and Greek mythology, for anyone who yearns for forbidden romance and lovers who get off on the wrong foot, and for anyone who doesn’t mind bloody scenes, adult language, and somewhat graphic, to-the-point sexual content.
And unlike TSC, this book is for anyone who loves some political intrigue sprinkled in with some bloodshed.
Rating for The Savior’s Sister
I rate The Savior’s Sister 5 out of 5 moon stars.
Reason: Strong storyline, intense situations, witty banter, thorough world-building, memorable characters, and an unpredictable plot twist that left me wanting to read the next book in the series.
So there you have it! My review on The Savior’s Sister.
All in all, The Savior’s Sister will make a permanent home on my bookshelf alongside The Savior’s Champion. I will of course be reading it again. I do recommend this book. And the link to purchase it is down below.
