S to come to pass He wants desperately to be king and I just want to be freeBut freedom will reuire escape and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed I can’t speak or make a sound and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king In a land purged of enchantment love might be the only magic left and who could ever love a bi 4 StarsI originally rated this book 4 stars with 375 Stars written in the text box here And then I realized that was fucking stupid So 4 big ones peepsBut moving on I love it when I crack open a book Well to be fair I'm not really crackin' open anything like lightly finger tapping; however I love it when I lightly finger tap open a book just doesn't have the same flair hollaAnywordsmithingI love it when I crack open a book and see a map Because that usually means that I'm about to enter a fantastical world of make believe as created solely by the author And if that map is followed by a pronunciation guideFucking sweet Because that usually meansthat we are about to enter a fantastical world of make believe as created solely by the author And that I don't have to fumble fuck around trying to imagine how to pronounce shit and spend the whole book trying to make Tiras happen That said the world building in this book was fantasticI love kingdom books And not only was this a kingdom book it was a paranormal kingdom book where people have magic powers Magic powers peopleInstant orgasm Lark was my favorite kind of heroine understated and low key with a spine of steel Tiras' character was also very interesting Throughout the book I enjoyed his interactions and I enjoyed his bond with Kjell as much if not than his growing bond with Lark So why not 5 stars you askThe ending action felt a little rough to me as far as the way it all went down and the way it was written Other than that I adored this thing and have already downloaded the next book in the series
