When I saw this on Bookish First and read the excerpt, I just knew it was something I would enjoy. Ans I was right... for the most part. Don't get me wrong I really liked this book and there was only one thing i disliked about it.
But we get to that in a minute, first the things I really enjoyed...... The world building was great and I really enjoyed it, it was well written and not over or underdone. It was a nice balance.
The cast of characters, judging from the cover I thought we would have gotten more than we did. But that was okay. We get the main couple and a few side characters but that are equally important to the story.
The romance was also something I enjoyed. They balanced each other out so nicely and it was so, so much fun to read. It did say a romantic high fantasy but I would say it is more romance novel set in a fantasy world. As we definitely get more romance/relationship than other fantasy stuff. But that was A OKAY with me. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
That all being said, the one part I did not enjoy as much was eh layout/ structure of the book. It was all over a before and after alternating chapters , One before next after and that made it a bit hard to follow at times and timeline a bit wacky for me . But overall, I enjoyed this book.
I rate it 3.5★ and would have rated it higher if not for the back and forth with the before and after and it be easier to follow.
