For the first time in this ancient, bloodstained story, the tournament is breaking. The boundaries between the city of Ilvernath and the arena have fallen. Reporters swarm the historic battlegrounds. A dead boy now lives again. And a new champion has entered the fray, one who seeks to break the curse for good… no matter how many lives are sacrificed in the process.

As the curse teeters closer and closer to collapse, the surviving champions each face a choice: dismantle the tournament piece by piece, or fight to the death as this story was always intended.

Long-held alliances will be severed. Hearts will break. Lives will end. Because a tale as wicked as this one was never destined for happily ever after.

Review

Thank you so much to Orion Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review!

 

The bloodthirsty families are back! But the champions are starting to question their loyalty and get serious about destroying the tournament forever….well some of them at least.

With Henry back from the dead, Alistair is afraid breaking the tournament will take Henry with him, and he’ll do anything to prevent losing his brother again. 

Briny, Isabel and Finley are determined to find the seemingly impossible path to break the tournament and avoid the fight to the death they’ve all been bred for. 

The characters really shone in this story. I was far more invested in the plot of the tournament in the first book, but All of our Demise brought the characters to the front and I really enjoyed getting to know them, and their back stories, a little more. Especially Alistair and Gavin.

This has been a brilliant duology and I’m so glad the plot (and character relationships ) went in the direct they did!
