I am so grateful to have received a copy of this incredible book!

It has become increasing hard for me to find a book which really captures my attention with both plot and characters but this book perfectly captures that!

It is a book rich in everything you’d want in fantasy, with a very interesting magic system, interesting cast of characters and intriguing history. If I could go and reread this book, I absolutely was.

Mirae was a treat to read about and her relationship with her siblings meant so much to me. She’s a realistic portrayal of a character her age and in her circumstance. For that, I applaud the author for how well she’s done.

The elemental magic system is what I ended up loving. The author never left me confused about what was going on with it.
