First off let me just say that cover is gorgeous!
The book did have a few tropes, but I didn’t mind them. It was fast paced so despite it being a brick I read it faster than I thought I would. The storyline was excellent and I didn’t get bored anywhere along the way.
I have to be honest, I didn’t really like Aurora in the beginning but about a quarter in I started to like her more. The supporting characters were well written and I loved them all, Gabriel and Snow are my top favorites.
My favorite thing about the book would have to be the world building and political intrigue. Miss Farah’s descriptions were well written, there’s also a pretty map in the book that helped me visualize the world better and I really loved that as well.(book maps are the way to my heart y’all) The fae, mages, and fae-mage concepts were really interesting and I loved seeing Aurora’s journey in developing her abilities.
I can’t wait to read book 2 and find out what happens next!
