Reviews Eden Conquered (Dividing Eden, #2)

  • Shreya (☆High Lady of The Night Court☆)
    I’m not sure what I was expecting from this book, but overall I think I got what I wanted. Both books put together from a single story with a pretty straightforward goal and a limited amount of plot twists therefore at some points I felt like they could’ve been combined to form one book, but the story being separated added the mystery as to where Carys went so in the end I agree with these books being a duology. The beginning of this book fel...
  • Jasmine from How Useful It Is
    I started reading Eden Conquered on 12/5/2018 and finished it on 2/7/2019. (Please ignore the date in this case because it has nothing to do with the book being good or bad. I experience the worst reading slump ever.) This book is another great read! Definitely a duology for those readers who don’t like romance in their YA fantasy. I do like to read slow burning romance so the little bit that this book offers is too little for me. Both Princess...

    Eden Conqueredby Joelle Charbonneau 4 out of 5 Stars!The second and final installment of 'Dividing Eden' duology. I absolutely adored the first book that it became one of my favourite books of all time, unfortunately the second book was a bit disappointing but I liked it, just not as much as the first.The story is told in third person and alternates between the royal twins Princess Carys and King Andreus.So, as much as I love seeing closeness and...

    Warning: Major Spoilers AheadAfter everything he had done, and everything they had learned, she was still acting as his shield.Eden Conquered is probably the most fast-paced book I've read this year. I was in a mild reading slump, but this book was still a pleasure to read. I loved Dividing Eden, so I was super excited to know the conclusion to Carys and Andreus compelling story.Initially, I absolutely hated Andreus. After all, he fell for the wi...

    4/5Date Reviewed: 11 August 2018This Review was first posted on Keep Reading Forward. If you want to see more, check out our other locations as well as here.Dividing Eden was that book that had a lot of mixed reviews and it was clear that it was also the type of book that you were going to like it or hate it. There was no in-between thoughts. There was something that seemed interesting to me and I knew I had to read it. However, I had to read wit...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 2.5*I was super excited about this sequel, as I found myself a fan of Dividing Eden last year. This one fell a bit short for me, but I was still glad I read it. Let's break it down, shall we?What I Liked: Carys is awesome, and I kind of wanted to read all the chapters from her POV. Andreus just irked me- and I am well aware that he was...

    This was slightly better than the first book but it's still just not interesting for me.
  • Nikki (Book Allure)
    Dude this was so boring I don’t even know anymore. DNF at 60%.

    *Source* Edelweiss/Publisher*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy*Rating* 3.5-4*Thoughts*Eden Conquered is final installment of author Joelle Charbonneau's Dividing Eden duology. Like the first installment, this story alternates between royal siblings Princess Carys and King Andreus. Betrayed by everyone they believed to be allies, the siblings continue to fight to determine who will reign over the kingdom. But now, one sibling has changed the game. 6 da...
  • Lulai
    More like 3,5 stars.I find the universe missed some deepeness about magic in particularity but it was a fun and quick reading
  • Clephiro (The Book Coven)
    Eden Conquered is the sequel to Dividing Eden and the final book in the duology. Similarly to the first book, the book is told through the viewpoints of the two royal twins - Andreus and Carys. While I feel that overall, the writing of this book was stronger than the previous book, a big problem I had with this book was the pacing. It started out well enough, but about 1/3 of the way into the book, the book just starts doing twist after twist, th...
  • Aly
    Not a bad sequel. It wasn't quite as exciting as the first one, but there was a lot of intrigue and wondering who you could trust and who had their own agenda. I liked seeing Carys learn more about her wind power and getting closer to Errick. Andreus finally pulled his head out of his butt and saw what was happening. Max was a cute kid and I'm glad Andreus took him in. I would've liked more information about the Xhelozi monsters and that whole st...
  • Anna-Maria
    FINALLY OMGI read the first book in this duology last year in October and I didn’t really love it at fist. Mainly I was just consumed by my anger and hate for Andreus ( that little b****), but I just couldn’t stop thinking about it and knowing that I had to wait almost an entire year for the next book killed me a bit. Now finally the second book is here and I pretty much devoured it. I loved it and I'm kinda sad that I already finished it. I ...
  • Natalie
    2.5 This might be my own fault since I didn’t remember much from the first book (which I really enjoyed and I think rated 4 stars). I liked the relationship between Carys and her brother, but I felt that the resolution of the conflict happened too easily. It reminded me of the ending of the Tunnels series - with loads of deus ex machina. I did like that this was a duology as opposed to a long, drawn out series like Throne of Glass.
  • Sabrina
    This sequel keeps the reader on their toes.
  • Jennifer
    Eden Conquered is the conclusion to the Dividing Eden duology. These books are YA fantasy. You must have read Dividing Eden before reading this book.This book picks up right where the first book left off. Eden Conquered has two 3rd person narrators (Andreus and Carys).Both POVs were interesting. And the story kept my interest. I enjoyed learning about Carys' powers and I liked seeing Andreus try to figure things out. However, I would have liked m...
  • Piki
    [3'5/5] La verdad es que no me ha gustado tanto como el primero. A veces me parecía que no pasaba nada interesante pero aún así sabía que algo se avecinaba. Las últimas 100 páginas han sido increíbles y ESE FINAL?! O SEA ME NIEGO A QUE NO HAYA MAS LIBROS. NECESITO SABER QUE PASA. En serio, odio los finales abiertos y este tiene las puertas en par en par!
  • Kristy
    3.5 stars, rounded up for now. I'm really on the fence about rating both books. It's not Charbonneau's best writing (I've loved her other books). The pacing felt really slow in this one. And the story bears some similarities to a couple of other popular fantasy books.
  • Kelley Wood
    I liked parts of this book better than the first. I wanted to “see” more of Carys’s power - like wind-riding power. I liked the growth of Andreus and the plot twists. Definitely recommend to my middle schoolers.
  • Misty
    Exceptionally well written. Wasn't expecting the emotions this one drew at the end. I really enjoyed it.
  • Julie Goetz
    This was much better than the first. It did have a twist I didn’t see coming. Overall books 1 and 2 would have been better if they were edited to one book.
  • Mcw
    I absolutely loved that this book wrapped up many ends but come on....the ending?!?!?!!SPOILERS AHEAD*****I love that many of the characters were redeemed and it was all wrapped up with a bow as it should have been, like all good duologies that DO NOT need to be a trilogy should be....BUT the way it was left, made me WANT a trilogy...but without the wait. What I wanted was an Epilogue at the end that told me that Erik had made it. YESSSSS, I know...
  • Augusto Román
    This is the second time I finish a duology. It was a great second part.I confess I was a bit lost at the beginning because I kind of forgot the cliff hanger but once I was back into it, I was all in. The story changes a bit. Both twins are now enemies-yes both twins Carys alive!!! And she comes stronger and more powerful than before, the death and resurrection show!

    Blog | Twitter**Eden Conquered comes out June 5, 2018**Thank you Edelweiss and HarperCollins for this copy in exchange for an honest reviewA princess on the run. Unknown assailants and spies lurking in the shadows of the court. Who to trust? And who will save Eden?This sequel to Dividing Eden in ways did it justice, but likewise could have been better. Carys is terrified of the power she's uncovered within her. Andreus wants to prove himself as k...
  • Caitlyn
    In the aftermath of Andreus' betrayal, Carys is in the woods with 1 person she trusts, 1 person she wants to trust, and Garrett who claims he doesn't want the throne. This journey through the woods part wasn't too bad- (I may or may not have been shipping Carys & Errik for the majority of this part). BUT we still have Andreus POV. Andreus still believes he was perfectly in the right to leave his beloved sister TO DIE. He starts having doubts arou...
