I'm going to go against the average reader and say that this installment was better than the first. Take into account that at the time I'm writing this review, I've actually read the next two or three installments, so I have some level of comparison of "meh" vs "OMG why did I just read that?". As derivative as the series is, it's still fun at this point. Is Magnus going to turn out like dad? What the heck is going on with the natural disasters? While there isn't a lot of character development, I would say the plot doesn't so much move forward, as thicken. Rhodes adds more confusion to be sorted at some undisclosed later date. If you liked the first book enough to read this one, you probably won't be disappointed.

I wasn't sure about the first half of this book- it was rather slow. The second half had me completely hooked. There was too much of Jonas (my least favorite character) and his hair-brained schemes and dumb decisions. On the other hand, Magnus and Cleo are married (no spoilers here, Gaius announces the betrothal in the first or second chapter) and we begin to see their relationship start to evolve. Magnus is slowly changing from a boy eager for his violent father's approval, to a man who is beginning to think and act for himself. We start to see that he is not at all like his father, and there is a kind and generous man inside trying to claw its way to the surface. Cleo is far less annoying here, and Lucia is more childlike. The magic seems to be taking control of her, and she is losing her grasp on reality. I am now completely invested in this series, and will absolutely continue.

I read the first book in the series and I was not impressed with the characters, but I went ahead a picked this one up and enjoyed the character growth in this book. I will definitely read the next book.

Not as good as Falling Kingdom. Not even close.

After reading Falling Kingdoms, the first book in Morgan Rhodes Falling Kingdoms series, I was very excited. I jumped right into Rebel Spring but I have to say my expectations were not met. There is some huge character development especially from Prince Magnus who is trying to figure out who he is and what path he should follow. In this book he really begins to question his father’s decisions and he really begins to see things for how they really are. But I found there wasn’t as much action as the first one. This whole time the author was building up all this suspense and I was waiting from this huge action scene, but it fell short. There really wasn’t any action. However, despite this lack of action within the book, I found this one was more important for character development as character began to take action and I really got to see what the characters wanted for themselves. Overall, I did enjoy this book, but not as much as the first one. I am excited to read the third one and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Overall, I give this book a 3.5 out of five stars.

Great series! Auranos is defeated. Cleo is forced to be betrothed to Magnus. Who can she trust and how can she win her kingdom back.
