The Nightmare Birds, Strange Luck Book 2

Strange Luck Series by Amie Irene Winters

Young Adult

The Nightmare Birds (Book 2)

 I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first book of the series, Strange Luck, has already been reviewed and you can find it here. While this novel can be read as a standalone, I highly suggest reading it as part of the series.

Quick Summary: Daisy Darling’s shop, Strange Luck, attracts all sorts of people and things. When she is tasked with vetting the Theatre of Secrets, she embarks on a journey that no one has returned from… at least no one who has seen the performance. It is said that only those with wild eyes, an impulsive heart and a wandering spirit hunt for the Theatre of Secrets, but that once found it will change your life forever.

Like the first novel in the series, there is a lot of action. There is mystery, suspense, and an estranged mother all to be had. Since it’s a somewhat complicated plot, it is difficult to follow in some places, but I enjoyed the dark and twisty nature of the novel. I was surprised in some places, which I always love in a fantasy novel, both by the characters and the nature of the story.

Amie Irene Winters seems interested in exploring the nature of life itself in this tale. What makes life worth living? What gives us motivation to continue living? And what are our greatest fears? Fear itself plays a very important role in the novel, but then again, so does its opposite, love.

This is not a romance novel, but there is a lot of love in the story. Daisy is a very loving person and it really helps to draw people to her, including me the reader. The love of a daughter to her father, first love, and the love of a mother to her child—it’s all there and I enjoyed it immensely.

Is it worth buying? (Kindle $2.99)

Yes, I enjoyed the second book in this series a lot and found it to be a fun adventure. It is highly entertaining and worth the three dollars. Plus if you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s free.

Something else you might enjoy:

You have to read Cat Winters, In the Shadow of Blackbirds. It’s so good! It’s a little bit dark, a little bit of fantasy, with the added benefit of it being a historical novel. You can read my review of the book here.
