Sequels are awesome now.

So yeah. Lately I’ve been reading a lot of sequels that just kick ass. They’re awesome. With so many feels my heart almost can’t take it. When did that happen? Sequels used to be the “meh” books in the series. Especially in trilogies. They were good set-ups for an epic ending. But they often suffered from the dreaded Second-Book-Syndrome. Could this be the age of awesome sequels? Do we not have to fear for the SBS anymore? Here are a few sequels that are fantastic and some are even better than the previous book in the series. These sequels kicked ass, tugged at my heart-strings and some even made me cry. Hard.

  1. It’s good to see that this trend is blowing over, because it was a bit tiresome and it always made me reluctant to read the second book. Days of blood and starlight was even my favorite book from the series – and I also think I like Scarlet the most. Another sequel I absolutely loved was Lady Thief by A.C Gaughen. Crown of midnight is AMAZING.

  2. I love how middle book syndrome seems to be a thing of the past lately! And some people are even doing away with the middle book and making it a duology. I’m liking how this trend is doing and a lot of sequels are even more amazing than the first – less real estate on world and character building. Great topic Bieke!
