I loved this book!! It was one of those reads where after I finished it I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The author created an imaginative, magical, and vivid world. It was not a world I’d like to visit though.
Alina had it rough through childhood as an orphan in this harsh world. I went on an emotional roller coaster for sure. I love those kind of reads. I don’t even know what to say without giving things away. I want you to read this book and discover this world for yourself. It’s great! I’ll tell you this: I cried tears of joy at one point which doesn’t usually happen when I read. It was the sweetest moment. I’ll have to choose this book for my book club to read so I can talk all spoilery about how wonderful it was!
The ending was great with enough closure to satisfy while leaving more to the story for the next installment. I can’t wait to read the next book!!! Is it really a year away?
