So much action is packed into this novel! It really put me in the mindset of Sarah J. Maas, and Elly Blake [Frostblood Saga,] with its deep character development and world-building. Sometimes it was a touch confusing and difficult to follow with such similar names, but that was me.
I really enjoyed the premise of the story, although not a unique one, it’s one I really like in this genre. A thief/nobody trying to make it in the harsh world they live in, only to discover they’re an important figure and needed in their new life/situation. Coupled with the stuffy/strict romantic interest... It’s really a great recipe as far as plots go.
As stated above, I think fans of Throne of Glass, Frostblood, and Wicked Saints would enjoy this, as it has a similar feel with romance, elements of a deity gifting abilities, and magic.
