Minni Mouse Ooh, I'm rereading right now, too! It's still a bit rough for me, not gonna lie...but open mind!! Open mind..


Nina (Every Word A Doorway) Happy to see you liked this one! Creep alert: I gave it the same rating, brainsister. Looking forward to your review! :)


Books are TARDIS Haha, I also don't want a house like this one, specially if it comes with
Ignifex. Looking forward to your review :)

Muse-ic ♬ awesome review, Simona! I didn't compare this one to Angelfall because I read it first, but in my mind Angelfall was much better! But I still thoroughly enjoyed this one :D


message 6: by Minni Mouse (new)

Minni Mouse Oh, yeah, Nyx was allll over the place. And her "falling in lurve" with both guys was a bit ridiculous. I do agree that the house was trippy, though!

Pang Thanks for the review, girl. I want to read this for a big while but after reading several reviews, I still in the decision...


message 8: by Nastassja (new)

Nastassja she fluctuates between thinking of herself as the most despicable person on Earth and easily rolling with it, even relishing it. It basically depends on her mood of the moment. I personally prefer the latter case...

I preferred too when she felt snide and angry and relished in it without feeling guilty. I wouldn't say Nyx is one of my favorite characters but she is pretty high on that level, because she wasn't a good or kind character and I blame her family more for being such a bastards and making her play along with their plans, though yeah, Nyx lacked some resolve at times and I wanted to smack her more than once for being a fool.

As for the love triangle, I agree it was annoying, but I guessed almost instantly that two love interests are the one person and my irritation wasn't very evident and I wanted to see how the author will resolve the situation.

And that house, yeees, it was absolutely gorgeous. I want another book about it and maybe more deathly traps like, let's say, in the movie Cabin in the woods :D

Great review, Simona))

Alafiya Hate it when a book has a love triangle even more so when there is a pinch of insta-love there as well! But a strong world building and a great conclusion make up for all that is missing. I am still not able to decide if I should read this one or not. :3 Nevertheless, great review. ^_^

Simona Bartolotta Thank you all! My comparison with Angelfall was born from accidental circumstances, so you can just ignore it if you want :3 :)

@Nastya I know, she was so more interesting when she was indulging her wicked side. I would have loved for her to be more steadfast... her not being good or king is a point in her favor for me too :)
I guessed that too!! Ahahah sometimes I myself find my instinct annoying... I want to be surprised, why won't I let myself be so?! Anyway I agree that the resolution of the plot was not half bad! :D

Thanks <3

@Al I think you have good chances of liking it! Personally, I would recommend it :) Thanks darling <3

Well, I liked your comparison with Penryn and I see how both heroines are similar and different at the same time)

Oh, I think maybe Rosamund did not try hard to hide the mystery part from us, at least the one about both men. But still it feels like maybe the author should've tried harder.

BTW, have you read her other book, Crimson bound? I think it's better in some ways than this one)

Kainat 《HUFFLEPUFF & PROUD》 Also, Penryn is hilarious, where Nyx is just annoying. :)


Nenia ☠️ Hecka Wicked ☠️ Campbell I actually liked this more than ANGELFALL, but I can see the similarities. :))

Great review!

Taasia ✨ I agree with your take on the love triangle, Nyx's relationship with Shade is genuinely unnecessary, check out my review for an explanation haha :)
