    • (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“I know how to fight.”This was an okay story, but I didn’t like it as much as Stray.I was quite surprised when I realised that this book followed Elanor rather than Aislynn, and I actually had to go back to the first book to try and work out who Elanor even was! (She was one of the orphans that Aislynn helped rescue). I found it quite difficult to warm to Elanor though [...]


    • ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Burn by Elissa SussmanBook Two of the Four Sisters seriesPublisher: Greenwillow BooksPublication Date: January 19, 2016Rating: 4 starsSource: Gifted ARCSummary (from ):After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home.

    • An interesting story following a girl named Elanor, part of a group of Orphans living in a mountain, who wants more than anything to see the Wicked Queen gone from power. I never read the first book, thought I owned it, I never got around to it. I enjoy fairy tales, so I was actually a little bummed to find out I missed out on the first book, thought all was not lost, that just means I will now need to actually read it.I was glad that Burn could read as a standalone, though I must admit, reading [...]


    • *Source* Publisher via Edelweiss*Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*Burn is the second installment in the Four Sisters series by author Elissa Sussman. While the first novel in the series featured Princess Aislynn, Burn features one of her rescuers, Elanor. Elanor is a study in contrast from Aislynn. Taken away from her parents at a young age, she was thrown into the Wicked Queen's service for the next 5 years. Later she escaped, and joined a group known as the Orphans, who are [...]


    • At first I was disappointed to know Aislynn wasn't going to be the main character in this book, but I still really enjoyed it. This one definitely felt more emotional than stray, and I really need to know what happens next!



    • Ladies and gentlemen of the jury I give you exhibit A, my fawning review of Stray, the exquisite broken fairy tale told by the super talented Elissa Sussman. Please note my adoration for her writing style, amazing world building, and awesome story telling talent. Observe my longing for the second book in this series, my salivating, insatiable greed to have the next book in my hands.Now observe my heartbreak and crankiness over this book sucking a giant egg.It's made worse by the beauty and myste [...]


    • After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets, mistakes she’s spent years trying to forget, and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away. With fellow rebels on her side—including Princess Aislynn, Thackery [...]


    • Burn was, unfortunately, quite the mediocre read. There are a lot of things I didn't like about it and very few things I enjoyed.One of the biggest problems was that I honestly felt like I didn't get to know the characters at all throughout the novel. I'm not sure exactly what it was, but the character development seemed extremely poor, and I just felt nothing about any of the characters. (Except the pet fox. So adorable.) Even when there were big twists that seemed to shock the characters, I ju [...]


    • Burn revolves around Elanor, a trained Orphan, who appeared in Stray as a helpful rebel to Aislynn. Her background is as opposite as opposite gets compared to the princess. She is haunted by her intertwined past with Queen Josetta and lives as a courageous, cunning warrior who is an expert with a bow and arrow and dagger. Quite different, indeed. She meets Matthias during a rescue mission, and events begin to unravel Unlike Thackery and Aislynn's slow, innocent connection, it went pretty quickly [...]


    • Second book in the series and it took me a few minutes to figure out what was going on. This story is based on one of the other characters point of view that I was not expecting when I started the book. I actually grabbed the first book Stray and skimmed the last chapter to refresh the story in my mind. The concept for the story is great and the writing is easy to read, but this is the second time that the story ends and I feel unsatisfied. Not sure what it is with the way she ends the books. I [...]


    • I have no idea how to feel about this book. When I look back on it I think it may have been better than the first book in theory, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much. I think this is probably because it was the wrong type of book for what I needed at the time. I gave it the "it was okay" rating because that accurately describes my overall enjoyment, but if you liked Stray, or are a younger ready looking for an entry-level YA novel, be sure to give this a shot :)


    • 3.5 again. Enjoyed this one more, though it still had a bit of a jumbled feel to it similar to the first book. But I'm anxious to learn more in the next few books and see if I'm right about a few things.




    • I expected that this would pick up where Stray left offd it did sort of - but it followed an entirely different set of characters. I warmed to Elanor, though at first she was hard to relate to. She's tough and focused on her goals and unapologetic about her rough edges. I loved that she was Bi and eyed up the pretty women and handsome men around her with equal interest. (view spoiler)[ though she does end up with an attachment to a guy for most of the book.(hide spoiler)] I liked the plot about [...]


    • After loving the first book in this series so much, I was pretty disappointed in this one. It was kind of like when Ms. Sussman wrote Stray, she chopped off the last 300 pages to make Burn. It has been awhile since I read Stray, and I had no idea who people were since the only character I remember from the first book wasn't in this one until halfway through. I couldn't remember any of the characters, what their roles were, what they were fighting against, and where they were. These things weren' [...]


    • Not as strong as the first entry in the series and not as satisfying either. A pity, because I was excited to see what would happen in this world.


    • Stayed up late reading; liked almost as much as the first. Hope the contract didn't run out (hate when they do that!).


    • Loved itI can't wait for the next one in the series. I hope it this year. Thank you Elissa Sussman for writing this wonderful stories.




    • I have been waiting for this book for a long time now. Ever since I read Stray just before it was published. I'm so glad to have finally gotten to read this book. And so happy to say that I liked it a whole lot. But three stars for this one. And I have so many thoughts and reasons for that. Shall try to share all of it.I found the writing in this book to be stunning. Lots of love for it. And the story is pretty exciting too. And I liked this book at all times. But I also had a few issues with th [...]


    • Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: I had really high expectations for this because I loved the first book so much, but unfortunately, I was really disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, it was still an okay read, it just wasn’t great like the first book.Opening Sentence: Elanor’s shoulder was bleeding.The Review:Elanor is an orphan and her parents were murdered by Josetta, the evil queen who rules their kingdom. After her parents were killed Elanor was forced to work for the [...]


    • I was so disappointed that Burn follows Elanor, a character we barely met in the first book of the series, instead of Aislynn. While Aislynn was the main character and sole focus of Stray, we don't even hear her name until 25% of the way into Burn. I wanted more Aislynn; I wanted to pick up on her story.Elanor's feels like a detour. It feels like more questions than answers. To be fair, we're completely removed from the world of the royals so the academies and fairy godmothers aren't mentioned a [...]


    • Review first published on Intellectual Recreation.Burn, the second book in theFour Sisters series, is more of a companion novel than an outright sequel. Stray, the first book in the series, also made my list of favorite debits of the year in 2014. It's a twisted fairy tale with a feminist flare that gives us a new take on fairy godmothers. I eagerly awaited the next addition to this world, but it didn't quite live up to my expectations.In Burn Elanor, one of the Orphans who helped Aislynn escape [...]


    • So I really enjoyed Stray when I read it last year, so I was excited to see Burn pop up on Edelweiss! I mean, I've been waiting for some answers for AGES, so yeah, obviously I wanted to read Burn.Sadly, Burn didn't work as well for me as Stray did. I mean, I felt a little lost throughout the whole story and that's just not a very good feeling. I like to be fully immersed in a story and the characters and experience everything right along with them. And that never happened with Burn. I kept wonde [...]


    • Actual Rating: 2.5 out of 5 starsDetailed Review Here: teengirlatheart.wordpress/Overall I found this book very disappointing. I really loved Stray - I loved the characters, the story, and the world created. When I found out that this book followed Elanor, I was slightly disappointed because overall to me Elanor had been a pretty blah character in Stray and that others were far more interesting. However, Stray was so good that I figured that even with Elanor at the forefront she would end up com [...]


    • Burn focused on Elanor, not Aislynn of Stray, which disappointed me a little. But then I kept reading and liked Elanor - she's brave, loyal, and has a good head on her shoulders. Although the overall characterization and worldbuilding felt more rushed than in Stray, I couldn't stop reading Burn. I kept wondering, what in the world did Elanor do to feel so guilty, almost to the point of self-loathing? And I'll admit, Dagger was my favorite character of this book. The scenes with her touched my he [...]


    • My Thoughts: I debated between giving this one a 3 or 4 cupcake rating. I liked it but I didn’t like it as much as the first one, Stray.We are reintroduced to Elanor. You may remember her vaguely from Stray. When I started this one I didn’t know it was more of a companion than a sequel, but I still liked it. Well, Elanor is out to make the world a better place and to force Josetta out of rule just like many others. She’s a great fighter and a true leader. We also meet a new boy named Matth [...]
