Wilde's Army by Krystal Wade

Wilde's Army (Darkness Falls #2) by Krystal Wade
YA Fantasy
Rating: 4 Stars
“Hello, Katriona.”
Those two words spark fear in Katriona Wilde and give way to an unlikely partnership with Perth, the man she’s been traded to marry for a favor. Saving her true love and protector Arland, her family, and their soldiers keeps her motivated, but the at-odds duo soon realizes trust is something that comes and goes with each breath of Encardia’s rotting, stagnant air. The moment when concern for her missing sister spirals out of control, all thoughts of trust are pushed aside and she finds herself trapped by the daemon tricks Perth warned her of.
However, rescuing those she loves is only half the problem.
Kate still must get to Willow Falls, unite her clashing people, and form an army prepared to fight in order to defeat Darkness. When so many she’s grown fond of die along the journey, her ability to play by the gods’ rules is tested.
How will she make allies when the world appears stacked against her? And will she still be Katriona Wilde, the girl with fire?

My Thoughts: I love finding new series that I can sit down and enjoy. Wilde's Army is just as good as the first. More drama and lots of action. I have to admit some parts seemed to get a bit repetitive though. She kept using the same words to describe scenes and her powers, that's not really a bad thing but when one action scene comes after the other it just got annoying. There are other words to use but they weren't.

My favorite part of this book was that Kate was stronger in this one. She knew what she wanted and did everything to get it. She stood on her own and was as powerful as they told her she would be if not more. She has grown so much since the ending of the last one and judging by this book she is going to grow even more.
