All That Burns (All That Glows #2)
by Ryan Graudin
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: February 10th 2015

In this thrilling sequel to All That Glows, the worlds of magic and mortal are colliding as London celebrates its new king, marking an era of unity between the Faery realm and the human one. Emrys, the Faery guard to the British royal family, sacrificed her powers to be with King Richard, choosing love over immortality. But now, as Emrys struggles to navigate her place between the Faery queen’s court and London’s lavish galas, danger looms beyond the Thames.When a prisoner with dark, strange magic breaks out of Queen Titania’s labyrinthine prison, endangering Emrys's king and sparking an uprising, Emrys must make the hardest decision of all.

Will she reclaim her magic to save Richard’s life and lose him forever? Or stay powerless as the kingdom goes down in flames?

Going into a second book like All that Burns can be stressful for me. I was so worried about Richard and Emrys. I didn’t want anything to happen to them! I’m was really pleased with how Ryan Graudin continued their story.

I loved the plot and it actually felt like it moved faster than the first book. It picks up where All that Glows leaves off. Richard and Emrys unveiling the Fae and teaching the nation how to coexist with them. What I love so much about it, is that it really shows the struggle of accomplishing this. It gives the diversity of the fact that not everyone is happy with the decision. Especially when it comes to cutting down on tech and relinquishing a bit of control to magic. I also like how Emrys has her own struggle with giving up her magic to become mortal. Also there is some great tie-in to Camelot and of course a mystery to be solved.

Emrys has definitely changed since her days as a Fae. She is more emotionally driven than duty driven. I loved how firm she is in her love for Richard, even when she has doubts. There is that glowing spot in the back of her mind reminding her what she is fighting for. She is still pretty tough even without her powers. She finds it difficult to take a more sideline role.

Richard is as always Richard. Sweet, reliable and charming. I like how steady and understanding he is.

I loved that Annabelle has more of role in this story. She’s a fierce character. I wouldn’t mind seeing a spin-off of her. Her energy is contagious even in story form.

Keiran is an interesting addition. Especially because he is not Fae but Ad-hen which is something different. Adds to depth of the paranormal creatures.

I really enjoyed All that Burns and I burned right through it. Ha ha...okay not so funny but I was sucked in and reading at top speed to fit all the clues together. Who is doing this, why are they doing it, how are they going to stop this. Ahh! Like I said I’m definitely rooting for an Anabelle spin-off!

My cast ages might need to be adjusted a little bit...

My name is Ryan and I've been writing ever since I grabbed one of my dad's old tax ledgers and created this masterpiece: see image.

My writing has since improved, though my obsession with wolves has remained relatively the same (I even own a wolf-hybrid pup.) My childhood was a happy, sunny thing. I grew up on a steady diet of fairytales, salt-marshes, music and brothers who would re-enact Redwall battles with me in the back yard. I went to an artsy sort of high-school that allowed cello recitals in the hallways and impromptu poetry slams in the cafeteria. It was there I decided that writing was what I wanted to do more than anything.

I'm officially a grownup now (I suppose one must admit that once they turn 26). My diet still includes fairytales, salt-marshes and art, but there are a few new loves thrown in. A big one is travel. Pieces of my heart are scattered like breadcrumbs all over the globe--I've bartered them off for writing inspiration, so I suppose it's a fair trade.

When I'm not cramming my earthly belongings into a backpack and waiting in airport security lines, I'm doing one of the following: Writing YA novels, Photographing weddings with my husband, Making our little white cottage more homey, Playing with my wolf pup, Trying out Korean r├ęcipes, Haunting local coffee shops with my friends.
