I was so incredibly excited to get this book! After reading All of Us Villains, I was hooked, and I needed to know how this fight-to-the-death was going to end! This is the final book in the All of Us Villains duology, and it is not a stand alone. If you haven’t read book 1, you need to because it’s amazing, and then come read All of Our Demise!
This story picks up right where we left off with Villains. The competitors have been pushed into two thought-processes. One group is fighting to bring down the curse while the other players are individually trying to become the victor. As the story progresses, there’s magic, danger, friendships, romance, and twists to keep you on your toes!
I thought All of Us Villains was so fast-paced, and I just couldn’t put it down. With this book, I felt the pace slowed a little. The champions each seem to have a few moments to step back and try to figure some things out. I enjoyed the secrets that were revealed, and the surprises I wasn’t expecting. I also enjoyed how the different relics and locations were destroyed. I loved those scenes of excitement and danger!
I would definitely recommend this for readers who have read the first book! If you haven’t read the first book, but you enjoy books like The Grace Year, The Hunger Games, or Red Rising, I think you would like this magical villain-centric duology!
Where to Find This Book:
The epic conclusion to Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman’s New York Times bestselling All of Us Villains duology that’s The Hunger Games with magic.
“I feel like I should warn you: this is going to be absolutely brutal.”
For the first time in this ancient, bloodstained story, the tournament is breaking. The boundaries between the city of Ilvernath and the arena have fallen. Reporters swarm the historic battlegrounds. A dead boy now lives again. And a new champion has entered the fray, one who seeks to break the curse for good… no matter how many lives are sacrificed in the process.
As the curse teeters closer and closer to collapse, the surviving champions each face a choice: dismantle the tournament piece by piece, or fight to the death as this story was always intended.
Long-held alliances will be severed. Hearts will break. Lives will end. Because a tale as wicked as this one was never destined for happily ever after.
