When I saw the cover of this book I knew I needed to read it. The colors are beautiful and then you read the synopsis and it pulls you in. I was so excited to dive in and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint.
Ximena is living a double life to her people and even her enemies. She can be brash and doesn’t always think about the consequences of her actions. One of the things I love about her character was how much growth she had. She learned to make friends with her enemies and I loved seeing those friendship unfolds.
There are other characters that also caught my attention, like the masked figure El Lobo. He was so suave and wanted to help everyone. He reminded me of Zorro. I also thought I had him figured out but I was not expecting who it actually was!
When it came to Catalina and Atoc, they had a lot more in common than they thought. At times I felt sad for both parties and I understood why Ximena had such difficulties with making choices.
Now, one of the cool things that was included in this book was the magic. There were new abilites I hadn’t read about before like magical weaving and reading of stars. They were fun concepts and I loved how Ximena used her weaving to not only create beautiful tapestries but to also help in her missions.
The plot is thrilling, heartbreaking, and definitely engaging. I read it in one sitting. I enjoyed seeing how everything came together and really hoping it would all work out for the best. The ending was pretty open ended so I hope that there will be another chance to dive back into this world.
As for the romance, it is slow and perfect. That’s all I’m going to say.
Overall, I enjoyed this beautiful book and can’t wait to see what this author comes up with next!
