I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
“Who do you become when the you that you always were is no longer?”
There are so many characters in this book. The world building is quite intricate. It is almost impossible for me to explain without confusing you, but I will say that it is worth experiencing for yourself. Ella Frank is already a 5 star author, but when she takes you in the fantasy genre she goes further than I ever thought she could. This story is full intrigue and impossible to put down. Each character mattered as they were woven into the story.
I cannot say enough about the world building in this book. I was in awe from beginning to end. What an amazing mind Ella Frank has! It was like I was in a dream state the entire time I read. I was beyond impressed. And frankly, fantasy is not usually my genre of choice, but I will definitely be reading more from this series!
Despite the sophisticated and elaborate plot, following this story was a breeze. It was truly enchanting. I was whisked away and never looked back! Frank does a great job of elucidating this special word so you never feel lost.
If that isn’t enough, the love story is timeless. Kai was my favorite character with his brooding and darkness. I am definitely a sucker for that. But really, you just have to read it to understand. I wish I could give you more. Well, maybe this quote will give you a taste of what I’m talking about…
“From the beginning Kai had overwhelmed her, frightened her, and controlled her destiny. But right near and now, the look in his eyes told her that she was the one in control. HE was under her spell.”
This will be a series and each book will contribute to the story.
I know this is a short review, but there really is no way to capture the magic and beauty from this book other than to read it. I highly recommend it.
5 Stars and horn of mead for this phenomenal book!
