    But fear is an interesting thing It means there s something left at stake There s something worth fighting for So IGNITE THE STARS was definitely funnier than ECLIPSE THE SKIES I loved the dark humor, and snark Unfortunately that s missing this book It kind of bummed me out because Ia s dark wit was one of the highlights of the first book Although after the ending of IGNITE THE STARS the lack of humor is understandable Thank you Netgalley and the published for an eARC in exchange f But fear is an interesting thing It means there s something left at stake There s something worth fighting for So IGNITE THE STARS was definitely funnier than ECLIPSE THE SKIES I loved the dark humor, and snark Unfortunately that s missing this book It kind of bummed me out because Ia s dark wit was one of the highlights of the first book Although after the ending of IGNITE THE STARS the lack of humor is understandable Thank you Netgalley and the published for an eARC in exchange for an honest review.ECLIPSE THE SKIES reminds me a lot of the fourth season of THE LEGEND OF KORRA Pacing, character arcs, etc so think of IGNITE THE STARS as season one of TLOK funny, kind of goofy, great twists and ECLIPSE THE SKIES as season four of TLOK darker, less humor,of a focus of overcoming mental barrier than physical enemies, and overcoming demons Ijust.miss the banter from book one We finally get an addition of a queer character bisexual girl as a side character rather than the only queer rep being a brief mention of sapphic queens So that was nice but see spoiler 1 This book takes place over a longggggggg period of time so some things feel rushed but that s because like three weeks will pass in a single paragraph jump so that s three weeks of character development we missed out on Also there are some sections of the book thatsome summarize events than took the readers through it.Okay, so I hate having spoilers for arcs in my reviews because very few people get to read the book early but I have some thoughts that I need to get off my chest before I explode.SPOILERS BELOW 1 Ugh we have a use of the bury your gays trope So we have three queer characters sapphic queens and Eve and the queens have like two pages of screen time and one dies So the bury your gays tropes is alive and well 2 I have confusion at how they found Knives on Myth when they they didn t use coms or tracking devices so no one should know where they were 3 Brinn, even with the trauma of loss I mean, you can t really make a rational decision like two minutes after finding out news like that , still felt like she acted OOC in this book Then again, Bolin also felt OOC in TLOK season four so what do I know 4 The last Ia scene irked me so fucking bad I ll say why after the book releases so avid any major major spoilers I don t wanna ruin the ending for everyone I love every other character s final scene but hers Overall, I enjoyed 90% of this bookI just preferred IGNITE THE STARSContent Warnings and Trigger Warnings slurs against aliens , anti refugee protests, colonization, death, discrimination, profiling, war, violence, ptsd, suicidal thoughts, heroes suicide sort ofbut also not , bury your gays trope, depression, abusive sibling relationship, addiction to pain killers
