Sword of Deaths | Christopher Mannino

*This book was free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


In book two of The Scythe Wielder's Secret series Susan's adventures continue through the new school year. Unfortunately, joining the Boskery team isn't the biggest challenge she has to face. The dragons have begun attacking ships carrying mortamant, the vital material used to create scythes, disrupting the Deaths ability to do their job.


What engaged me about the first book was the potential the world held. I expressed a desire to learn more about the world of Deaths. Mannino has more than given me what I asked for! This book has new locations to read about, more history about the 'Mentals and actual interactions and history of the dragons!

Of course, in a book about the only female death, there are romantic considerations. Fortunately for the readers more interested in the goings on in the world, this is taken care of relatively quickly and then takes a backseat to the more important aspects of the story; the mortament shortage and the impending war with the dragons.

What was really fun for me was that I did not see the plot twist coming. Yet, upon reviewing the story, all the clues were there! This does not often happen to me. Usually I'm really good at picking up on what's going on. But I missed this!

This was a wonderful continuation of the series. I read it in just a few days because it's fully engaging. The world is immersive and there's so much to it. 4.5 hoots!
