~Synopsis from Goodreads
Okay, so I was very wary of starting this book. I didn’t love the Grisha trilogy and everyone loves this book. I didn’t think that Leigh Bardugo was for me, writing wise. But I still wanted to read it just to be sure. And like okay.
This book was amazing. The writing, story, romance, and everything is so much better than in the Grisha trilogy. I liked this book a whole lot more.
I did feel that the pacing was a little slow, but other than that it was amazing. The characters are amazing and I love the morally grey characters and their backgrounds.
I gave this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I loved this book, the only thing I didn’t like was the pacing. I do recommend this to anyone, you don’t need to read the Grisha Trilogy to understand what is going on.
Until Next Time,
