Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding—and Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.

Anna Arden did not know breaking the Binding would break the world.

Anna thought the Praetheria were on her side, content and grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas's blood sacrifice to the disarm the spell would bring peace, equality, justice. She thought her future looked like a society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor.

But with the Monarchy breathing down her neck and the Praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun.

As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.

To be honest I liked Blood Rose Rebellion but I didn't love it and I was kind of hesitant to read the Lost Crow Conspiracy but I must say that this sequel surpasses its preceder. 

Lost Crow Conspiracy starts off after Blood Rose Rebellion and with a ball, I love balls, and immediately we notice the changes that have been made after Anna broke the binding. Nothing is as it was and so much has drastically changed that you wonder if the characters will fail or rise above it all and fix what was broken before its too late.

Luckily Anna wasn't afraid to rise to the challenge, her character development was believable and didn't just happen overnight. I'm not really that interested in politics in books but Rosalyn made it interesting enough for me to enjoy especially when Anna wanted her voice heard, I adore her wanting to set things right and not just leaving it for others to fix.

Matyas, talk about a surprise, I'm trying to process the fact he's still such a major character and that my love for him is as strong as it was in the first book, he's taking in the Praetheria that want peace and protection and I loved that. He's also figuring himself out and wondering where he fits in the world and that's so relatable to all of us because life changing events usually make us question who we are and who we will become, same goes for Anna.

You guys the Praetheria either want peace or war and Anna and Matyas are right in the middle of it all so I was on the edge of my seat trying to see what on earth could happen next. 

I didn't think that I would enjoy Lost Crow Conspiracy but I really, really, really did and now I have to wait for the third book and the waiting is going to feel like 8765432 years. 

Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. When she’s not reading or writing, she enjoys spending time with her chemistry professor husband and three children, watching British period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes housework on principle.

She has a PhD in English from Penn State, which means she also endeavors to inspire college students with a love for the English language. Sometimes it even works. Rosalyn is represented by Josh Adams of Adams literary.
