Cover image and synopsis from Goodreads:
Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and her best friend, Bee, has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can focus on the important things in life: school, canoodling with David (her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie), and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.
Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or make her more powerful than ever.
I loved Rebel Belle, and I started reading this sequel almost as soon as I finished Rebel Belle.
Unlike Rebel Belle, I found this book to be slower – or at least it took em longer to finish reading. I found myself really frustrated with the vents in this book and with people keeping secrets from each other, which just led to more trouble.
Even though things happened in Miss Mayhem, it felt like nothing much was going on. I thought Rebel Belle was so great, and this book felt like a step down. I hope the next – and last – book in this series is better. I love this world and characters, so I’m hoping for a great finish to the trilogy.
