Wow this book was good. I loved everything about it. I cannot find one thing wrong with it. So why am I even writing this review? Ithink because I need to talk to about some of the things that I loved. Sorry. There will be spoilers so if you haven’t read this just stop here and know that I gave this book 5 stars. Okay? Okay. Let’s get on with this review/discussion thing.

I loved all of the characters because they acted like real people. Except for the tiny fact that some of them have awesome yet deadly powers. There was lots of scheming and plotting. It was really interesting to read about. I wonder what happens when everything is normal in that kingdom?

Hasar was a piece of work. She was a nasty person but she also would do anything for those that she favored. I’m not sure whether to hate her or love her. I liked Renia a lot more, even though we saw less of her. Sorry, Hasar. 

Chaol and Yrene were perfect for each other. They help each other conquer their fears and learn to live. You also knew it was coming. You had a chapter about Yrene before the healing even took place. I could also tell that Chaol and Nesryn weren’t right for each other. It was pretty obvous to me. I hope that Yrene and Chaol have many happy years together. That means that Chaol isn’t allowed to die on the battlefied. It will not happen!! These two need to be happy!!!

Now onto the second ship in this book, Nesryn and Sartaq(hope that I spelled that right). How do you pronounce Sartaq anyway? If you please tell me. Once again, these two are perfect for each other. But that doesn’t mean that they’re perfect. Odd, right? These two should be on the front lines rallying troops. They’d be perfect for that. And they probably wouldn’t die. I hope.

The plot was not very intense because there was healing invloved. But that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t action. There just was not as much of it. I didn’t care. The action that did happen was really well written. I loved how the rukhin was protrayed and how funny they all were. There were also lots of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and I marveled at how I didn’t figure it out earlier. Meave is a Vlag Queen as well as a Fae Queen. What? I hope that we explore that more in the next book.

The setting was really descriptive and it made me wish that I lived in the Southern Contient. It sounds better than Adarlan. Sorry not sorry. And if I ever got hurt I know that I would be fine because the Torre is right there. I loved that aspect as well. So basically, the setting was as perfect as the rest of the book.

This book is amazing. I know it, you know it, everyone knows it. Please remember to fill out my survey. You can find it on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!! Have a Great Day!!! -Annalee and Buttons
