*Spoiler free*

A book with a trans MC? A fae book with a trans MC? Oh yeah, sign me the heck up. Even though I was bit nervous about this book, simply because of my history of not liking a lot of fae books, I knew I wanted to give it a try. Making deals with the enemy, witches and fae, and a throne to secure is incredibly intriguing and I was ready to give it a shot. Trigger warnings: transphobia, abuse (verbal and physical), blood, gore

Alright folks, buckle up, because I've got some screaming to

I am broken, and need the next book NOW. Yes I know it doesn't even release for 7 more months, but no I am not willing to wait to see what happens next. How dare this book get me so emotionally invested and then end on a cliff hanger. Now, I'm gonna try and be as spoiler free as possible, but warning that I might ref some small things.

This book is everything I have ever wanted. I am a gay transman with a Thing for supernatural creatures, so this book was practically made for me. This book has it
