Wow!!! This was simply amazing. I loved everything about it, especially the alternating chapters between Rielle and Eliana. Not only are we alternating between characters, but we are also alternating between different centuries. The intricacy of plot lines and world building has me absolutely floored.
I listened to this on audio book, and the narrator was spot on. I will say I enjoyed Rielle's point of view chapters more than Eliana, and I think it was because I loved hearing Rielle's story as it helped with the world building quite a bit. I loved that we had prophesied queens (one of the sun, and one of blood), and I also loved the relationships and connections between all the characters. They were extremely human and relatable.
This was just the perfect type of fantasy read for me. I literally flew through the pages, and I had to know what was going to happen next. I can’t wait to get my hands on the second novel in this series.
