Thanks you Henry Holt & Co and Netgalley for this eARC, these opinions are my own. This was such an exciting read! Marlow lives in a world of magic, Magic that is controlled by the Five Families and writing spells outside of their employee is illegal. This of course creates a power dynamic among the people. Marlow’s not one of the elite but because of her mothers position she was allowed to attend school with them, that is until he mother disappeared. Now she spends her days working as a cursebreaker and doing everything to avoid the elite, especially the one who hurt her most. But when Adrius shows up at her door with his own spell that needs broken she’ll be thrust back into that world. Can she survive? Can she trust Adrius? Does his case somehow connect with her mother’s disappearance? Can she keep herself from falling for the boy who broke her heart? I was so enthralled with this world! I loved the magic system and the differences between the elite and the poor! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading! I kept thinking I had it figured out and then a twist would through me off! This was one that I wanted to finish to know what was going on but at the same time I didn’t want it to be over! And the ending?? Impatiently waiting to see what happens next with Marlow and Adrius! Luckily this one will be out soon and I can reread it!
