The Queen's Assassin by Melissa De La Cruz was a fantastic read. This book will probably be one of my favorites for the year and could possibly be the overall favorite. I was hooked from the very first page. The book has two main characters, Caledon and Shadow. Both characters are smart, funny, sarcastic, stubborn and so many other positive and negative qualities. These two characters are very detailed and relatable. It was fun going on a journey with these two characters as they discovered their path in life.

There are a lot of characters to keep track of, however, they are all essential to the story. The world building was amazing. This book is easily a movie in my head when I read it. It was hard to get through the first few chapters with all the details, though everything started flowing at a nice pace. The chapters got better and better, with more information introduced and more dilemmas for our two main characters.

This is the first De La Cruz book I have read, but it will not the be last! I cannot wait for the next book. Thank you BookishFirst and Penguin for the review copy!
