I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
5 ⭐️: OMG…This book blew me away! About 20-30 pages in, I was feeling pretty “meh” about it. I thought this one was going to be a dry, detailed political high fantasy and that it was going to pull me into a reading slump. I was SO wrong about that! About 50 pages in, I was really getting invested in the characters and in the whole prophecy/chosen one ordeal. The “Chosen One” trope is one of my favorite to read about! This book had so many twists and turns that I never knew what was going to happen! I kept trying to guess what would happen next, why someone was doing something or who could they possibly be talking about and I was nearly always wrong. I quickly became invested in each of the character’s arcs and I didn’t want harm to come to any of my babies! The romances were done so subtly and so well in this book in my opinion. Katy Rose Pool has now become a new favorite author and I can’t wait to read the next book!
