I am seriously so bummed to share that this was a very underwhelming sequel to the spectacularly hilarious and charming Rebel Belle.
Miss Mayhem takes place roughly four months after the events of book one. David, Harper’s now boyfie (Harper’s creative way of saying “boyfriend” hehe), has passed the Oracle test on the night of the Cotillion. The damage of that night has temporarily been patched up by Ryan, Harper’s ex-boyfriend and now David’s assisting Mage. Bee, Harper’s best friend, has finally returned from her mysterious disappearance since the fateful night. And the Ephors are suspiciously quiet. So things have reached a somewhat state of normalcy for Harper-well, almost. Harper soon learns that she has to go through trials herself before she can qualify as a true Paladin. And if she refuses or fails she’ll die. Not much at stake, right?
