Book Review: Burn

Cover of Burn by Elissa Sussman

Rating: Two Stars

After loving the first book in this series so much, I was pretty disappointed in this one. It was kind of like when Ms. Sussman wrote Stray, she chopped off the last 300 pages to make Burn. It has been awhile since I read Stray, and I had no idea who people were since the only character I remember from the first book wasn’t in this one until halfway through. I couldn’t remember any of the characters, what their roles were, what they were fighting against, and where they were. These things weren’t explained.. and maybe if I had just read book one, I would have remembered, but I never did. Sad and disappointed.

Stray by Elissa Sussman: 5 stars

My Goodreads review: This book has such a cool premise, is exacted well, is threaded with mystery and magic and everything I love. It’s beautiful.

I read Stray in 2017.
