I absolutely enjoyed this book. I gave it a 4/5 stars. The writing style was really beautiful, and very lyrical. There was quite a bit of foreshadowing throughout the book, which I really enjoyed. It really helped tie together what was going on between all of the characters. The characters all had really strong personalities, and I thought were developed really well. Eliana definitely has a strong moral compass of what she does and doesn’t do, and is very much strong willed like her parents. I liked seeing how complex the relationships were between the characters themselves, that really added interest to the story. The magic system is really well developed, and I’m interested to see where exactly the author takes that later on. I think it’s interesting to see that Rielle even truly does not know if she might be the Light Queen or Blood Queen, I liked seeing that war inside her. Overall I really enjoyed this start, and am definitely going to continue in the series. I can’t wait to see what else develops and see where the author takes these characters.
