Read With Shred 2: The Cloven

The Cloven; B. Catling (2018, 429 pgs)⁠

3/5 stars⁠

Although there were some of the most memorable scenes here across the trilogy, Catling’s treading water with this book, and I don’t understand why the narrative was spread across two books rather than three. I also really disliked the ending – it felt like there should have been more of a happening tying the threads from the three books together, and instead there was just a series of events that dribbled out the information to keep the reader semi-invested.⁠
