3.5/5 Stars

Javan, the crown prince of Akram, has been at school for the past 10 years trying to fulfill his mothers dying wish - that he be top of his class come graduation. On his journey home, an impostor successfully takes his place, tricking his ailing father and those under his rule. Javan is thrown into the palace kingdom when no one believes his claims of being the true prince. With the help of Sajda, the Warden's slave, Javan must compete in the prisons yearly tournament to win an audience with his father, the King.

I'm a sucker for fairytale retellings - so I have been a fan of the Ravenspire series since the first book. This is a retelling of the Arabian Prince mixed in with the prince and the pauper, which I have not come across before so I was very excited to start this book! I found the book to be entertaining and I enjoyed the concept of the tournament. I found the creatures that Javan and the other inmates had to face very interesting and I loved the descriptions we got of each. I also enjoyed how short the chapters were as I have a terrible time keeping focus when the chapters are extremely long. I liked Sadja and the big secret she was hiding, I wanted to know more about her rather than follow Javan to be honest. The one major complaint I have about this book was Javan... he was just...too good. He didn't have a bad bone in his body and it was just a bit unrealistic in my opinion. Like this boy could do NO WRONG, he was a literal angel. NO ONE is that good, not even the crown prince. I liked watching Sadja and Javan learn to trust one another though, I'm a sucker for friendship to lovers so I was a fan.

I'm excited to pick up Blood Spell in the near future!
