I received a free arc of this from NetGalley.

It sounded very intriguing, but ultimately I was very disappointed with the directions this book went. And it just ... wasn’t really that great in general either. Honestly I would probably rate this 1.5/5 stars if I could.

The plot synopsis sounds so intriguing. But don't expect any legitimate court intrigue. Nope, in this story, the plot is ham-fisted romance with some half-hearted, pedestrian level political scheming and a dash of basic fantasy trop

This book is wild. And SO GOOD. Burkhart kept me guessing to the end. The twists, the romance, and the feminist fantasy are just a handful of the reasons to go get this book for yourself. It's a good long read, but I still wasn't ready to put it down when it ended. I want more!

This book sparked my curiosity but overall I was underwhelmed. There were too many POV's (in my opinion) and overall the characters were not well developed. Theila was the character I was most interested in, and I would have prefered the book be from her point of view. The end of the book ties together too neatly for me with the amount of chaos that occurs throughout the storylines.

** I received this ARC for free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
