Read 2 times. Last read January 12, 2019 to January 13, 2019.

I'm so confused I swear I reviewed this when I first read it, but apparently not. Or else goodreads is being annoying. Who knows. Either is very possible.

I really like this book. Mostly because of Nikolai. But also because it's a genuinely good book, with fantastic world building and writing! And you know... other characters too... I really love some of them! Just... not as much as Nikolai. (Genya is a very close second, but she wasn't really in this one sadly.)

Also Alina I this one oh my gosh. I adore her character arc in Siege and Storm. I HAVE FEELINGS. It's beautiful and badass and also she's sort of terrifying. (And I love her for it).

“Of course not," said Sturmhond. "Anything worth doing always starts as a bad idea.”

“I took a breath. “Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.”

“Sturmhond had a way of talking that made me want to shoot someone. Preferably him.”

“You heard Prince Perfect," Mal said, and joined us at the table. Nikolai grinned. "I've had a lot of nicknames, but that one is easily the most accurate.”

51.03% "I'm somehow simultaneously loving this book so much more than I ever did on my first read, and yet also somehow liking it less.

It's just... I guess I've read so many more books since last time I read this, it just doesn't hold up the same way as it did the first time, but I also have so much LOVE for this series and these characters that was never there the first time."
