2014 book 31

Jaclyn Moriarty's The Cracks in the Kingdom
The second book in the Colors of Madeleine series is just as wonderful and unexpected as the first one. I hesitate to say more for fear of spoiling the first one (which I very highly recommend), so I'll just say that there's plenty more of Elliot and Madeleine trying to figure out the crack between their worlds (so much science! Physics! Metaphysics! It's delightful), more examination of both of their lives, more intrigue, etc. We also see more of the royal family, and it's all just fascinating. This manages to be one of those second volumes of a trilogy that moves the plot forward but is also moving on its own--which is, frankly, rare. AH GOD when does the last book come out, I cannot wait! A/A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released on March 25th.
