After the struggles of taking over as Queen, the death of her father.....and the sadness she felt

Ilsa meets Anita and learns that she knew Eira, Ilsa’s mom - this book takes you through a whimsical friendship made after Anita left The Hunters and organization trained to hunt and kill 🧜🏼‍♀️. It’s a great continuation of the first book.

Let me just say that I enjoyed this novella soooo much! It was instantly captivating form page 1. I loved learning more about Anita and her past and getting insight on Isla’a mom! The book had a lot of unexpected twists that I didn’t foresee, but that just made it more enthralling! The writing and details, were so descriptive and brought me right back into the story, regardless of how long it’s been since I’ve read about these characters. I also loved how we got to see more of their culture and ...more
