Excellent! Even better than the first of the series

I loved the first book, The Savior’s Champion, but I loved this one even more. The performance of the narrator was also incredible. She captured each character perfectly. I loved the friendship between Leila and Delphi and the blossoming friendship between Leila and Raphael. Delphi and Raphael are complete characters, not just “black friend” stereotypes. They have their own goals and purposes. It’s also nice to see the healthy romantic relationship between Leila and Tobias.

Fun to see a different perspective

I was initially hesitant starting The Savior's Champion thinking it wouldn't be my thing, but I love Jenna's YouTube channel and couldn't help eventually wanting to get sucked into the story I was hearing about. It was hard to put it down once I got to know Tobias and then I couldn't sleep wanting to know what was coming next in the tournament. This being the companion to it, I knew I'd have the same "trouble". As expected, I thoroughly enjoyed The Savior's Sister: brutal, romantic, dark, humorous, fantasy, and a great view from another character's perspective. I drug my feet waiting for the audio book to come out because I knew I'd have the same trouble putting it down and wanting to know the details from this point of view (and this way I can put my headphones in and get to it faster than waiting until my kids bed times!) The performance was stellar and I found I didn't want to pick up my physical copy of the book, but hear the performance (also, my toddler kept trying to throw my book around if I left it out and these books are way too big to risk getting clobbered with.) The narrator exceeded my expectations breathing life into the cast of characters. I loved hearing how she changed it up for the voices and it enhanced the storytelling for me. I'm glad I'd read TSC first and Tobias is still my favorite, but I very much enjoyed this companion to get so much more out of the story as I wait for the next in the series.

Jenna's got the skill Emma's got the voice

Jenna is back at it again! Leila's version of the events during the tournament show you a side of people you often choose to ignore. Jenna words read by Emma brings Leila to life as she grabs hold of the listener and pulls them into Thessen along side her while she battles for her life. I can not wait for the next installment!

Dark Fantasy Romance with nice political intrigue

The Savior's Sister is a dark fantasy romance that has a lot of political intrigue, action, and mystery. Jenna masterfully sprinkles in clues so we as readers can solve the mystery before the reveal.

Emma does a FANTASTIC job bringing this adventure to life. Her vocal characterizations are amazing and distinct. Every character had a unique feel and were easy to indentify. Her voice is very lovely to listen to and I never found my mind wandering.

Below I am going to be a little spoilery, so fair warning.

I read The Savior's Champion when it came out and totally fell in love with Tobias & Leila. So when The Savior's Sister was announced, I was very excited to see Leila's side of the story and have theories confirmed or dismissed and as well as get some questions answered.

The novel's prologue starts with a scene from little Leila, providing some groundwork for her character and her relationship with her father. A lot of questions from TSC, such as, how did The Savior get into a power struggle with Thessan's governing body happen are answered right here.

Chapter 1 then takes us to the day before Leila's birthday and gets us caught up on what has happened between the prologue and now in a way that isn't overwhelming. We're introduced to some new faces as well as get to see some old ones.

The rest of the novel continues to follow Leila as she fights to live, struggles with allowing herself a love that complicates her very precarious plan to stay alive, and battles her father in a very deadly shadow game.

Leila & Brontes relationship is one of my favorite parts of the story. I really love how similar, yet different they are in looks, personalities, and methods.

I just want to take a moment and REALLY appreciate both Brontes as an antagonist-- strong, cunning, sassy, unrepentant, and malicious-- as well as his senate. Each senator unique and interesting in their own way. I especially loved Erebus and Kastor. GREAT antagonists. I'm just saying.

Of course, the ROMANCE was absolutely phenomenal. Seeing scenes from TSC through Leila's eyes was amazing. I really enjoyed getting to see if I had picked up on her mood and feelings accurately from TSC and yes, just yes. Plus there's NEW romance scenes, so hells to the yaaaassss.

In short:
The power plays are intense. The breadcrumbs for readers to uncover the mystery are so tantalizing. The wonderful character dynamics-- some heart warming, many heart breaking, and others blood boiling. All of this left me aching for the next chapter immediately and the narrator is *chef's kiss.*

I give this novel 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who loves seeing a strong heroine in a deadly game of politics uncover a mystery and build a very healthy romance.

Very satisfying

I'd already read this book, but listening to it was a great experience. I loved the narrator's performance, it really added a lot. I loved this book going in, but now I have to admit I'm slightly addicted.

Love the Narrative

I loved The Saviour’s Champion and I was so excited for this instalment! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Emma did a great job!

My only (very minor!!!) complaint is that some pronunciations of words totally threw me through a loop and jarred me out of the narrative but I would very quickly be swept back up in the story. Word examples: ants was pronounced like ‘aunts’ (in the english pronunciation not the american), “in my stead” where stead was pronounced ‘steed’ such as one might address a horse. Again, very minor complaint and it happens so rarely that it didn’t detract too much from my enjoyment!

didn't add much

I was listening to so much of the same scene and wasn't really enough to really love it all of the added scenes where obvious.
