As the story unfolded, we got to see lots of fan favorite moments from FBAA, and scenes that weren’t in FBAA too.

We were currently moving about the enemy’s nest, and while none of the mortal servants or Royal Guards who remained at Wayfair had put up a fight when we entered, and there had only been three Ascended underground so far, none of us were comfortable here. Masadonia was one of the oldest cities in the kingdom, and I was sure it had once been beautiful when Atlantia ruled the entirety of the mortal realm—before the War of Two Kings, the Blood Crown, and the Rises were erected around cities and villages as prisons to keep out the consequences of the evil that lived within. An odd noise came from behind us, a low wail easily mistaken for the wind, but everyone on the Rise was trained to listen for that sound.

The world is built in a unique way and while the initial plot isn’t anything original, it’s very engrossing to read about. Now, the only beauty to be found was beyond the heavily wooded Wisher’s Grove, where the elite of Masadonia lived in large manors on sprawling acres. I'm glad that Cas' was the focus in this book, I felt that during the previous book, his personality didn't shine through as much and he felt static. But most of all I loved getting to hear Cas’ preconceived notions about Poppy, even as he got clues of who the Maiden truly was from others around him. So, of course, he thought his brother was lucky to be given to the Royal Court upon his thirteenth birthday during the godsforsaken Rite— as all second sons and daughters were.Journey alongside Poppy, the tenacious and resolute heroine destined to lead her kingdom into a new era, burdened by the weight of her sacred duties as the Maiden. I saw him standing there, but I couldn’t get the image of seeing him speared through the chest out of my mind.

The world gets expanded yet again and we finally learn a tiny bit more about the gods of this world. Usually, it was all due to the Ascended not wanting the people to know exactly how many were lost while fighting the Craven.

Also, we finally receive more information on what kind of torture he went through while he was that bitch's captive, although we already know the gist of it, how he coped with it after his escape, and how it still affects him decades later. Everything in The Crown of Gilded Bones kept me on edge and every time they had a peaceful moment I just wondered when the next big crisis would be. I understand that people deal with trauma differently, but I really would have preferred if Jennifer would have come at this from a different angle and really got into the nitty gritty of his trauma. In addition, he finally gets the character arc he deserves, as this isn't just the story of how he meets Poppy, but also how he deals with the trauma he is left with being captured by the Blood Queen for five decades.

He went straight to two large windows framing a bed and grabbed the brocade curtains, tearing them from their rods. When I saw that A Soul of Ash and Blood was being marketed as Hawke's retelling of From Blood and Ash, I was skeptical.In all transparency, I feel like it is the Tower of Dawn of the Blood and Ash series, where we really could have had the important plot points added in to the prior book, and nothing would change besides not having Hawke's retelling.
