The book started off slow for me - it's an epic fantasy where a lot of the world the story takes place in needs to be established. I was never thinking about DNF, but it wasn't ...more
Longer review to come much closer to release.
The storyline is complex, which may be what made it slow going in the beginning.

I will say this, for me it had a bit of a slow start. But it did end up picking up for me and I got to the point where I just didn't want to put it down. I love the three sisters. I found them to be so relatable and realistic. From the beginning of the book to the end of the book there is a lot of growth and I am here for it!
A great read for sure.
This is a Netgalley ARC review.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an eARC to read!

The world is built beautifully, with descriptions scattered about the chapters, allowing the reader to put the jigsaw of that massive land of many kingdoms. The world was well-formed in ...more
