A fun and quick read. This book reminds me of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. While DOSAB is a better book, IMO, Gray shows promise and I'd like to see what she comes up with next.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Winged Persuasions and veil'd Destinies,
Splendours, and Glooms, and glimmering Incarnations
Of hopes and fears, and twilight Phantasies;

Of her own dying smile instead of eyes,
Came in slow pomp; the moving pomp might seem
Like pageantry of mist on an autumnal stream.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Adonais
