While traveling to Fren, Allyssa and Odar are hijacked by a ruthless assassin who divulges a stunning secret that changes everything.

Trying to come to terms with this newfound revelation, Allyssa is taken to Russek and delivered into the hands of a malicious and twisted royal family. She finds herself an unwilling pawn in a risky political game that will either end with her death or the annihilation of her beloved kingdom. Unsure of where the lies end and the truth begins, she must survive the brutal family and escape the fortified castle, all the while coming to grips with her feelings for Odar.

In a kingdom filled with darkness, Allyssa enters a game where one wrong move means death, secrets hide around each corner, and it will take every ounce of cunning she has to survive.

This book was provided by the publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I was fortunate enough to have Cage of Darkness in hand after finishing Cage of Deceit; otherwise that would have been quite the long wait. I hadn’t been familiar with the author until these books but I have a feeling I’ll be reading more by Davis in the future.

The sequel picks up right where the first book left off and dives right into the action. I’ve found both books to be pretty quick reads which is perfect for a reader on a schedule (or one who has far too many school things to do…). Davis knows how to keep you on your toes. Every guess I had, every theory I made about what would happen next… SHATTERED. If you were concerned that Cage of Deceit had one too many secrets, don’t be. All is revealed in the sequel and it was crazy how much change.

This installment was…edgier. Darker. It’s not a pretty fantasy. The characters have to face one hardship after the next with little reprieve to fully accept everything. Poor Allyssa. She struggled. A lot. At times, I wondered if she would ever catch a break but she really didn’t. But I think her character grew stronger for it and showed a lot of skill from the author.

Honestly, the whole cast threw me for a loop. The ones I loved I started disliking and the ones I disliked I began to love. These characters are so wonderfully flawed which sounds like a negative aspect but is the best part about them. They’re real!

I think the best part of this book (well, both books in this series) isn’t even the characters, but the fact that Davis delivers on a wonderful fantasy world with all the classics as well as her own twist. I’m such a sucker for a good fantasy, but I like seeing the extensive world-building.

Y’all know I love my world-building.

So first—I need the next book NOW. Second—if you like YA fantasy in any capacity you should definitely check this series out!

About Austine

Well hello there! I see you've reached the end of the post. Bummer. But perhaps I may interest you in a comment? And in case you were wondering, I'm a 20-something college grad with a piece of paper that says I know about wildlife. Reviewer of books since 2011, amateur photographer by day, and aspiring author by night. I believe animals (and books) are better than people.

Feed the book dragon and leave your thoughts!
