FromNew York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer comes a blockbuster fantasy series perfect for fans of Holly Black and Victoria Aveyard, about a kingdom divided by corruption, the prince desperately holding it together, and the girl who will risk everything to bring it crashing down. Apothecary apprentice Tessa Cade is tired of seeing her people die. King Harristan and his cruel brother, Prince Corrick, ignore the suffering of their people and react mercilessly to any sign of rebellion, even as a sickness ravages the land. That's why she and her best friend Wes risk their lives each night to steal the petals of the delicate Moonflower, the only known cure. But it's not enough to keep everyone she loves safe-or alive. When Prince Corrick commits an act of unspeakable cruelty, Tessa becomes desperate enough to try the impossible: sneaking into the palace. But what she finds there makes her wonder if it's even possible to fix their world without destroying it first. Brigid Kemmerer's captivating new series is about those with power and those without . . . and what happens when someone is brave enough to imagine a new future.… (más)

Omg I loved this book and can’t wait for the sequel to come out next year. Will definitely be re-reading this and recommending it to all my friends. The world building was great, secrecy, love and intrigue galore. Twists and turns which made me want to read this non stop (damn you life). Definitely a 5 star read ( )

"Not never, Tessa," he says, and his voice is so rich and deep that he could be speaking straight to my heart. "But not like this."

Love it.

Something about Brigid Kemmerer's writing makes my heart happy.

I am mad I didn't read this sooner but also I am mad that I have to wait until September for book #2. (#TheStruggle) ( )

1.75 stars,
I didn't like it.
There's something about Kemmerer's stories that seem to pull you in from the start but then leave you bored and disappointed, I can't really describe why I didn't enjoy book 1 of curse breakers as well as this but I will do my best.
This was disappointing, I was worried about this book since I wasn't a fan of [b:A Curse So Dark and Lonely|43204703|A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers, #1)|Brigid Kemmerer|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1574179523l/43204703._SY75_.jpg|50519947]

The book actually started off really good and was very intriguing, this was the same for A curse so dark and lonely. However, like A Curse so Dark and Lonely, this book fell flat and became dull as time went on. I did like the concept that Tessa worked at an apothecary and I didn't mind Tessa too much. However, all we hear about Tessa's occupation is that she's good at it, we don't see any evidence for this and I really wanted to see her do some cool stuff with her knowledge.
The main protagonists are Tessa and Corrick. There is little to no chemistry between these two characters. Still, its not easy to write a book so congrats to Kemmerer for having the will to do it. ( )

audio adult/teen fiction (13 hours, excellent full cast narration) - commoner Tessa teams up with smugglers to try to get much-needed medicine to the townsfolk; Prince Corick struggles with his royal duty (meting out punishments) and with his conscience in dealing with desperate people who are just trying to survive. ( )

After reading this author's Cursed series, I decided to try some of her other books. Defy the Night is the story of Tessa and Wes who rob the king's gardens at night for the precious moonflower, the only antidote to the illness plaguing the land. King Harristan and his brother Prince Corrick seem uncaring of the people's suffering, hoarding the herb for the nobility.
In some ways, this felt a lot like the story of Shadow and Bone to me. I don't want to give much away but I saw a lot of parallels, not that it's a bad thing. The romance was good and the love triangle (a trope I generally dislike) works out. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. ( )
