Thank you to HMH Teen For gifting me a copy, and Thank you to Rockstar Book Tours for recently inviting me on to the Blog Tour. All opinions are my own.
First and foremost, the cover, it is stunning, and it’s 100% the reason I requested a review copy. I am so glad I ended up enjoying the book as much as I did. Also, I have not read the series that this book spins off of, and I was still able to follow along with this book with no issue. I felt that I had zero difficulty investing myself in the characters, and the world.
I have been kind of in a YA book slump, and I am so excited that this book pulled me out of it. This was a such a rich, and detailed story, one that I let consume my time, and the more I read, the more I found myself not wanting to answer to real life. I love YA books that have a certain amount of darkness, and a little touch of historical fiction (which I am a huge fan of), it makes for a very entertaining read. I am glad that this is a duology, I may do things a bit differently and read the HIS FAIR ASSASSIN Trilogy, while I wait for the next book. Because, after that cliffhanger, I am not ready to give up on this world. I need more!
