We begin this book about 2 years after the end of Red Sister.
Except for Clera and Hessa, Nona and company are all back at Sweet Mercy moving up to grey class and enjoying new rivalries and enemies there. Yes folks, it’s more of the catholic girls school dorm rivalry and pecking order stuff that Red Sister was full of. However, the petty rivalries and pecking order stuff don’t take up much of our time as this book soon picks up speed as Nona has to run away from Sweet Mercy to escape the Inquisition who have turned up at Sweet Mercy with a nefarious agenda.
I was hoping that this book would be much better than Red Sister and i wasn’t disappointed. It’s well good and immensely unputdownable. I don’t really want to say any more because i think i’ll give away too much of the story. Suffice it to say, if the slow pace of the bulk of Red Sister left you a little disappointed but you enjoyed the faster pace of the ending, then you’ll really enjoy this, so definitely give it a go.
