Thank you Jimmy Patterson Books for gifting me a copy of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Simply put, I loved this book, everything about it. I love that it ripped my heart out, and I love that it put it back together. This was the perfect retelling, and the cover is freaking stunning.
This is my first Capetta and McCarthy book, and honestly I need them to hurry up and right the second book to this, because I need more, and I need it now. I am so in love with this cast of characters, and I need to see what happens next for them, because that was one hell of a cliff hanger. I love Ari, and Merlin, and lady Gwen, and all of the Knights. They are such an eclectic group, but they also balance each other out perfectly.
My one complaint originally had been how fast the relationships progressed, but then I realized they had to, because a lot of things happened in this book, so there wasn’t any time to drag things out, and once I realized that I appreciated it very much.
