The Cracks in the Kingdom (The Colours of Madeleine, #2)The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked the first book in this series, but I absolutely loved this one, the second book. Because I already knew the characters, the worlds, the back stories, I could just jump straight in head first and let it all happen.
I generally like books that have lots of dialogue and less descriptive language but this is not one of those. While there is fantastic language used in all conversations, the descriptions of what is happening, descriptions of the characters and the places are simply divine.
I feel like saying this book is a whimsical, charming, clever scoop of strawberry and turquoise ice-cream, brimming with magenta pearls that explode into starbursts of inquisitive butterflies. Now that doesn’t make any sense but at the same time, it makes all the sense in the world.
