Review: Fantasy of Flight by Kelly St. Clare

Reviewed by Elle

Fantasy of Flight is the second book in the Tainted Accords series, that began with Fantasy of Frost.

We pick up the story, right as book 1 finishes – Olina has left the safety of the Kings guard, and with her blue eyes, is passing for a Bruma named ‘Frost’. In return for food and a roof over her head, she agrees to become a pit fighter, taking on some of the outer ring’s most brutal fighters. Her veil has been destroyed and the only way she can ever return to her position as Tatuma is to find the material to replace her veil. If she cannot do so, she’ll be stuck in the pits as her ‘Frost’ persona forever. But maybe that wouldn’t really be so bad?

I liked this one even more than the first book! So good I got halfway through and bought the rest of the series and the novella.

This book is where we really get to see Olina as a badass. We already knew she could fight, but the pit fights take that to a whole new level. And the barracks other fighters quickly became some of my favorite characters. There’s much humor in this book, as the rough and ragged fighters try to teach the much more proper Olina to loosen up. Olina’s journey continues to be fascinating- she’s experiencing life without her veil for the first time, and as Frost, she has no responsibilities. It’s her first taste of freedom. I just can’t get enough of this girl!

The romance takes a back seat for much of this book. But I did a lot of nail biting, with my heart thumping in my chest so that made up for it. And we do see some progress with Jovan and Olina (damn that slow burn is torturous!). But I loved every minute of it. The plot twist towards the end was unexpected and adds a whole new dimension to the story. I’m looking forward to seeing how that shakes things up yet again in the next book.

Another A+ read from Kelly St Clare!
