Review: Children of Daedala

36049722Children of Daedala (Children of Icarus #2)

Six months alone in the labyrinth has made her strong. But the search for the exit means gambling on an old ‘friend’ and going against everything she’s been taught to survive. You know the labyrinth will have yet more horrors lurking in its depths. You’ve learned few people can be trusted. But freedom is tantalizingly close. Are you ready to take the risk?

So good! I’m loving this series! I can’t wait to revisit this world!

While this one wasn’t quite the emotional ride the first book was, I loved the character growth in this one. Now we see the main character as a stronger, more confident version of herself. She has learned to survive on her own, but has also learned to stand-up for herself, and when to care for others, and when to keep to herself.

While this story is very gory, and contains a lot of violence and abuse, I love how Fay Bell deals with it, and grows through her experiences. I actually don’t think this one was as violent as the first one, but there are still some really gruesome parts.

I love the world created in this series. The Labyrinth is such a dark and bloody setting, and the longer the Icarii survive, the more ruthless and powerful they become. So much in-fact, that the oldest are often unstable and cruel to the younger Icarii. Fay Bell learns this lesson first hand at the hands of some such characters. She must decide if any of the other children she meets are worth trusting, and if so, how far to trust them.
