Review: Raytara: Judgement of the Stars
Raytara: Judgement of the Stars by Elke Schuster
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After having read the first of this series, I wasn’t really sure where the second book would take me. The love story seemed to be in HEA territory, but this book threw all of that into turmoil.
After Livia and Cassius finally became a real couple, with Livia making the transition to Arash, now we are faced with a new bunch of issues. Ruth is still trying to figure out which side of the battle she should be on when he long lost lover resurfaces mysteriously. After some even more stunning revelations, it appears that there is another Arash family in town with the sole objective of calling judgment (Raytara) on Randolph. There is a lot of misunderstanding, betrayal, and forgiveness throughout this story. The introduction of a lot of new characters was also a welcome surprise. Sadly, we don’t get a lot of romance, because Cassius and Livia spend the majority of the book fighting or simply not talking to one another.
The world that the author has created continues to be completely unique and surprising at every turn. It really leaves you never knowing what will happen next.
