“I’ll need weapons,” she demanded, and he wanted to tell her that he would lay all the armament he had at her feet when the time came. If the time ever came. But now was not the time.
“If you like ACOTAR, Six of Crows, Throne of Glass, this is for you and this is so correct. Although it was a little slow in the beginning, this book is full of surprises on the way. The main heroine goes by the Gandrett who is enlisted into saving a kidnapped son of a lord. Being fans of ACOTAR, Six of Crows, and TOG, I was a little nervous that this series wouldn’t live up to the hype and boy was I wrong. There was so much to love from this book and I was hooked from the beginning.
First, let’s start off with the characters, Gandrett a spunky and fierce warrior with unique characteristics, Nehelon who is a brooding fae which makes you love and hate him at the same time, Brax and Armand who have overlapping personalities but the more you read about the more you see the growth. Last but not least, there’s McKenzie who is the shining gem out of the entire group. The storyline was enthralling just as the plot twists as they kept me on the edge of my seat. Two gripes that I have is I felt like some of the relationships were formed too quickly and that is usually my gripe with books. I would’ve liked to see more development before two hop into a relationship. I would’ve also liked to see more of McKenzie in this book because I did enjoy her character the most out of the ones in the book. Other than that, I enjoyed the book especially the conclusion. I immediately started the second book because I couldn’t wait.
