The Sisters of Reckoning is the second novel and conclusion (I believe) to Charlotte Nicole Davis’ The Good Luck Girls series.

Aster, her sister, and their friends fought hard for their freedom. And in the events of the last book, they earned it. But Aster can’t turn her back on every other girl stuck in a Good Luck House. She won’t rest until they’re all free.

Thus, Aster and crew find themselves in the center of a group of fighters. They’re the new heart to this revolution, which calls new Dust Bloods to their side every day. Will it be enough to earn freedom for everyone? The question haunts Aster.

“Her conscious would not let her rest until she did, no matter how many other Good Luck Girls she borderjumped to safety.”

Like many other readers out there, I was swept away by the events of The Good Luck Girls. Naturally, that meant I was counting down the days until I could read The Sisters of Reckoning. This sequel has earned a place in my heart, right alongside its predecessor.

I can’t believe I finally got to read The Sisters of Reckoning! It was absolutely worth the wait; I can tell you that much right from the start. Much like the first novel in this series, it really does pack a punch.

The world that Charlotte Nicole Davis created here is a harsh one. We have two sets of people, with one subjugating the other. It’s hard to see but easy to root for justice. It’s even easier to appreciate Aster’s stance and everything she does to try and make the world a better place.

The messages woven into this narrative are hard to swallow, but they make the story what it is, and I have to love and respect that. More than that, that foundation allows for heartwarming and powerful moments as individuals and groups rise up to do what is right.

I didn’t know what to expect when it comes to seeing this series end. That being said, having read the end of The Sisters of Reckoning, I can’t think of a better way. The conclusion does justice – to the characters, readers, and even to the world. I honestly believe this is one of the better endings I’ve seen in a long time, and I just want to hug it close to my heart for all eternity.

Thanks to Tor Teen and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
