My Thoughts

Shackled Fates is the second book in The Hanged God Trilogy and picks up from where the first book Northern Wrath ends.

I have to be honest I was a little worried that about picking up this sequel as I find the second books in the series tend to be a lot slower and disappointing but that wasn’t the case with this one.

This was another brilliantly written book. It was fast paced with lots of actions that left me wanting more with every page I read. Like with Northern Wrath this one is told through multiple POVs. I continue to love the diverse and well written characters, and loved discovering more about the nine worlds and how exactly they are connected.

I’m absolutely loving the series so far and can’t wait to pick up the final book Slaughtered Gods.

If you’re looking for a fast paced fantasy with plenty of twists I can’t recommend this one enough!!

I would like to thank Dave @The_WriteReads/@WriteReadsTours and the publishers Solaris for my digital review copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased thoughts. I was sent a copy of the series through NetGalley for a blog tour but was unable to fit the books in time!!
