This gorgeous book is everything I want in a fantasy. Beautiful, lush, lyrical with fantastic world building and an epic forbidden romance, I devoured every word and was left desperately wanting more.

A timely reminder that, in the right hands, the fantasy genre has things to say about injustice and abuse of power in the real world - Guardian

3.0 out of 5 stars Not amazing but certainly not bad!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 May 2019
I read this book in a day, usually that means that I loved it so much I couldn’t put it down. I tried to love and I really wanted to but I just kinda don’t. The cover was so amazing and became a big part of why It caught my interest. I loved the world and this book definitely had one of the stronger beginnings I’ve come across.
However, it lacks a certain something. The pairing was cute not omg yes these guys have to be together, The plot was a little bland it was a little interesting not OMG I need to know what’s happening now but I don’t want to teach the end, and I felt like there were so many other ways for it to have been developed despite the length not a lot actually happened and the pace wasn’t always satisfying. Where I wanted more information I got less and where basically nothing was happening the same thing was repeated. The characters were just a little meh, perfectly likeable yet I found their descriptions lacking beyond Wren and Lei and the King and even they could use more development.
Thats’s not to say I hated the book because I still made it to the end. For me I think the sequel will decide a lot. If the sequel is amazing then the positives that I can see hints of this this book will shine more clearly. So I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel and hoping it meets my expectations!
