YAS. Thank goodness- another legit series to get into!!
Wahoo… Okay. Initial thoughts….This is going to be a quick review because really I just want to read book #2 after all the raving reviews from friends… (though I’ll probably come back and update this review later. Whatever.)
So here we go.
FIRST OF ALL. This does NOT have demons. I don’t read those kinds of books. The Demon King only refers to a wizard that used to rule. Just thought I should note that!
The world is MY kind of world. Quarreling kingdoms, forbidden magic, clans… street gangs… yeah baby. Love it.
The pace was a little slow to start but I didn’t mind too much. I think most of this book was a nice set up for things to come. Whatever.. I’m thrilled about the possibilities.
There are several characters just brimming with possibilities. A certain someone has Darkling potential (though on one will ever measure up…mmk.. but I’ll take what I can get…), and another character is basically a mix between Day (from Legend) and Liam (from Darkest Minds). Gotta love him. The princess… well honestly I like that she’s a naive but determined- and eager to do the right thing. Definitely relatable. MK and the ships? I can’t tell much yet but I’m fine with any of them.
OOOOK gonna go read book 2 because I don’t want to wait. I’M READY FOR THE FEEEELS.
Wow this might be the crappiest review I’ve ever written. Sorry guys.
