    I received an ARC of this book for free from BookSparks for promotional purposes. I give this book 4.5 stars which rounds up to 5. I absolutely loved the first book in the trilogy but um okay wow this book was even more insane. It was a roller coaster of emotions. This book picks up right where the last book left off and from then on just continues all the craziness. At first I was a little intimidated to read this because I saw the massive character list in the beginning and was a bit I recei... more

    I received an ARC through my job at a library.Quick review: if authors could stop making me feel emotions of intense love that I reserve for my dogs and my dogs only, that's be great. (Context, I like dogs more than humans.) If you liked Sweet Black Waves, I'd honestly be floored if you didn't like this. Consistent characters & writing, development of the new land and it's politics, and the lingering feeling from Sweet Black Waves that "something's not quite right."I feel so empty! Why did I I... more

    Here I am again torn on what to rate this book. In fact, this one had soooo much more drama and angst than the first one.To be honest, about half way through the book, I was so tempted to put it down and try another time because between being so depressed and gut wrenching pissed...I believe it was bad for my stress levels to continue. I asked the same question over and over again... "Why the hell does Brenwan continue to put Essy first when it only ends up hurting herself?" I was pissed and was... more

    If you need me, I'll be sobbing uncontrollably all weekend as I think about this amazing book and how it was even better than Sweet Black Waves and that I am just a ball of emotions that will never be fully able to articulate how much I adore this series with my whole heart but also I AM RUINED. RUINED.

    *Source* Publisher*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy / Historical*Rating* 4.0*Thoughts*Wild Savage Stars is the second installment in author Kristina Perez's Sweet Black Waves trilogy. Sweet Black Waves is a retelling of the star-crossed tale of Tristan and Iseult, from the perspective of Branwen. The story is a tragedy about the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan and the Irish princess Iseult who either on purpose or by mistake, drank a love potion. Wild Savage Stars begins shortly ... more

    Read more of my reviews at Cornerfolds.com!Last year I read Sweet Black Waves and was immediately pulled into the amazing world Kristina Pérez created. The retelling of Tristan and Iseult was unique and heartbreaking and I could not wait to dive back in, so of course I was thrilled when I received an early copy of Wild Savage Stars!This story picks up immediately after Sweet Black Waves leaves off, with Branwen, Tristan, and Essy arriving in an enemy kingdom. Everything and everyone is a mess ... more

    Last year I read Sweet Black Waves, which is a retelling of Tristan and Eseult myth, and fell in love with it. I was eagerly awaiting the second book, Wild Savage Stars. And, wow, it was so worth the wait, it did not disappoint. Wild Savage Stars is even better than Sweet Black Waves in my opinion. This book is achingly romantic, brutal, lyrical, magical, and heart-wrenching. It was an emotional roller-coaster that I didn’t want to get off of. I couldn't stop thinking about it days after I ... more

    I’ve had so many thoughts whilst reading this book, but the most prominent is this: this series would have really thrived as an intricate, politically complex adult fantasy, and it becomes really obvious in this second book.(Or maybe I just want these books to be longer.) There’s nothing wrong with this book being YA at all, but if given a longer word count like an adult fantasy, this story could really thrive and develop. Looking into some of the narrative events and themes presented in thi... more

    A deepening of the story that Perez so ably began in Sweet Black Waves. The character of Branwen continues to be compelling despite (or because of?) her flaws. The introduction of a sympathetic and admirable King Marc, the interesting mercurial Ruan, and the formidable queen mother makes this book a pleasure to read. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I blew through it in just a few days! So curious about what will happen in the third book.

    I absolutely loved Sweet Black Waves, so I was over the moon when I won an ARC of this book from the author’s instagram. I loved it just as much as the first and think this series will always be a favourite. I just love the setting and Celtic folklore so much!I can’t say much without spoiling the first book, but Branwen’s life is very stressful. The wait to find out how her story ends will be agonising! I really enjoyed meeting new characters in this book, especially Ruan! The discussions ... more

    4-ish stars.(view spoiler)[ Tbh I really wanted to see Branwen take her man back but I'll try my best to get through this. (hide spoiler)]Change this book's title to “Emotional Torture Porn: The Book” I'm so mad but so is Branwen, and so we were mad together and that made for a great finale. Reading this book was like pure agony until the final conflict and then it all paid off. I know it was all built up on purpose, but if you're like me and dislike downward spiral character development and... more

    oKAY IM FINE eVERYthinG IS FiNEbut in all seriousness, I am not fine :) Branwen is so amazing I just can't. She's not one to bend, like, at all. She does what she believes is right, even though it may be dangerous, even if it may hurt someone, she does it wholeheartedly. She seems like an anti-hero almost at certain times, and I LOVE it. I read this in one sitting, one day before it officially comes out (Barnes and Noble had it in sale early thank God!) so I'm dying because I have to wait an o... more

    Let me just...The book was utterly amazing. I loved every single word of it.But Essy...let's talk about Essy. Branny made mistakes, I get it. But Essy is selfish and self-serving at every turn. She expects Branwen to clean up her every mess. Whenever something happens, she throws her hands in the air and wait for Branwen to come swooping in. I dislike Eseult with a burning passion. I really, really dislike her.

    I read Kristina Pérez’s debut Sweet Black Waves last year and fell in love with her story. It’s one about love – love for your motherland and its people, love for your family, of the sister of your heart, and of love found unexpectedly. Pérez put her own spin on a legend that has been repeatedly told and romanticized over the centuries, breathing fresh life into it by focusing on a different character. It was an exciting start for a new series, and with the way it ended, I knew that I ju... more

    **Originally posted on The Fandom** There’s something especially haunting and stunning about reading Kristina Perez’s Sweet Black Waves series. Perhaps it’s because the original legend in which it finds its bearings– Tristan and Iseult— is a tragedy, and you anticipate that dark, destructive energy right down to your bones. Perhaps it’s because we see Branwen become the main character, giving her light and agency that gets you invested in her side of the story, even as life crumbles ... more

    Usually the second book in a trilogy is terrible compared to the first. I was surprised because this wasn't the case. Wild Savage Stars was immensely better than Sweet Black Waves. It picked up right where Sweet Black Waves left off, with Branwen, Tristan, and Essy arriving in enemy territory where Essy will marry a king she doesn't know, love, or want to marry. Branwen transforms into Essy and Tristan's guardians since she dedicates all her time to keeping them away from each other before King ... more

    Full review available at Something of the Book.Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsWild Savage Stars is a lush and dramatic novel, full of court intrigue, betrayal, and magic. As the sequel to Sweet Black Waves, Wild Savage Stars amps up the angst in this Tristian and Iseult retelling. Fans of romantic fantasy stories with court politics will love this series!

    I'd been intrigued by Wild Savage Stars since I met Kristina Pérez at the recent Comic-Con event put on by Tor. Her premise? The myth of Tristan and Isolde, retold in a YA format through the eyes of Isolde's handmaiden, Branwen. So when I requested this book on Netgalley- and it was accepted- I sat down to read it almost immediately.I did this without realising it was the second in a series, but as it turns out, it didn't matter. This book was where all the juicy action lay, where all the I'd... more

    The second book in the series of the epic retelling of Tristan and Eseult myth begins right where the first ended. A long and dangerous journey from Iveriu to Kernyv is coming to an end. Branwen accompanies Eseult to her new home where the princess is going to marry King Marc. Branwen is still trying to recover after the terrible betrayal by her two dearest people. In Kernyv she faces new challenges as she tries to uphold the peace between the two kingdoms. Especially when the peace is The sec... more

    I have been dying to read this book since I first read an ARC of Sweet Black Waves over a year ago, and it did not disappoint. Wild and savage are definitely appropriate adjectives for this story (book 2, I am already miserable for #3). Branwen, the MC tries so hard to cope with her errors from the first book and to do what's right, though she stumbles (and full out falls) in that endeavor frequently. I can't think of much more to say without spoilers, but I really enjoyed the characters, I ha... more

    Needless to that this books broke my heart just like the first one. I loved Sweet Black Waves and it's ending shocked me and left me in desperate need for the second book. And Wild Savage Stars didn't disappoint me, at all. I've come to hate characters that I loved in the first book and loved characters that I didn't think I would (except Ruan, no surprise there). The ending again was a huge cliffhanger and makes me really anxious about the next and last book. Pretty sure I'm gonna be an angsty ... more

    CAN I HAVE BOOK THREE PLEEEEEASE?BLOG || INSTAWhoa y’all. This was one of my top TBR books for 2019. After last years Sweet Black Waves, I was left SHOOOOK. And here I am, still feeling the same. I seriously have no clue where book three is going to go. Many, many things happened in the last 50 pages of this book that really brought home this solid 4 star rating.Branwen is a mystical MC. I never know quite what to do with her. I like her most of the time, other times I want to shout at her, bu... more

I completely fell in love with the first book in the series and I was incredibly excited to find out what was in store for Branwen in book two. I absolutely devoured this book and book three is definitely one of my most anticipated releases.The story follows Branwen, ... more
