I thought this was going to be a slower read for me, but I was very wrong. This story drew me in right away once I met Ren and Tess. The strengths of their character was plain to see from the get go and I loved them immediately. The world building was very detailed and in depth, just adding layers to an already rich story. The magic system was very interesting and well described. There wasn’t a lot of romance, but there is the hint of more to come. The characters themselves were all amazingly well done. Very well fleshed out and I actually enjoyed reading about all of them, which to be honest, doesn’t always happen. There is plenty of mystery and intrigue, but also a wonderful amount of suspense and action. This is the first book I have read of either of these authors, but that’s something I plan to remedy very soon. I would definitely consider this to be an epic fantasy, but at over 800 pages it honestly didn’t seem long enough. I’m going to buy this book as soon as it comes out and will eagerly be awaiting the next instalment. I was very impressed by this book.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
