Inan can eat dirt for all I care. It's such a shame to I liked Inan and Zelie in the beginning but how many chances can you give a guy.(less)

Zélie: *has some lukewarm, half-baked romance with Inan*

Does anyone have any idea why the publishing date has been pushed back so far?

I need to read this to see if my theories are correct, dammit!

huh. well, this is a little bit disappointing. i finished this and all i could think was ‘thats it!? i waited nearly two years for that!?’ maybe my expectations slowly became too high whilst i was anticipating this release, but wow. this is not at all what i was hoping it would be, sadly.

similar to ‘children of blood and bone,’ the representation and diversity is what culturally enriches this story and gives it its power. the writing is also really magical. but the plot? wow. what a snooze

Okay, I’m ready. Where is it?

We got a synopsis, and I’m even more excited.
Those that mean that Amari now was magic? Answers are need it.

This cover killed me.

I don't know. I like the cover a lot, but something about it just doesn't match with the first book's cover. I think maybe the style of the art is slightly different. excited to find out what happens though!

I can’t predict where this is going to go to be honest. Like is Inan ok? Will Amari be queen (that’d be great)? What happened to Zélie’s maji powers?
