    Okay, so. I liked it, but... I needed it to be about twice as long. For once I don't mean this in the simple 'I wanted more' sort of way, though I did/do. I mean that this book would have been much stronger had it been given more room to grow, and had the plot not been cut where it ...

    Joy shows massive talent in her stellar worldbuilding and tricky premise. l loved the complex system of magic and rich history of the kingdoms. My only complaint is how much I hated Eva's mother and sister. Truly, they were so awful that I was ready for Eva to end them all. Luckily, Ev...

    This was a really enjoyable read. I really liked the MC Eva and the fae mage Baccha who helps her learn to use her magic. The author does a nice job of transporting the reader to this mythical African inspired magical world. Looking forward to the next book in the series. ...

    ok looks interesting but i have to say i'm curious why this book is being marketed as north african. nothing about it looks north african. not the names, or character, clothes on the cover or anything. it doesn't appear to be own voices so i'm extremely skeptical. ...

    A sibling rivalry like nothing you?ve ever read before. Joy weaves a dark yet delicate treatise on race, heritage and power whilst never losing that addictive ?just one more chapter? allure. I devoured it one sitting! ...

    *Spoiler free* Just from the title alone, I wanted to read this book. It sounds dark and a dark royal story sounds amazing. Then it just sounds better from the synopsis. I've recently fallen in love with sister stories and this one sounded complicated and bloody. There's also a Quee...

    This book was such an unexpected, exhilarating delight, I fear I don't have the right words for this. First, it was brilliantly written! Eva's voice rang powerful and unique throughout the story. The world itself is full of wonder, but each magical delight hides cruel origins, that ...

    DNF on page 200. Sadly, this book was not for me. Though I?m addicted to books about fights to the death, this one just didn?t sell me because I felt like there was no urgency to the fight, there?s nothing keeping the main character there, and there isn?t anything particularl...

    After reading a slew of underwhelming new releases, I am SO glad this book came into my life. This world is vivid, the characters complex, and it does not easily succumb to many typical YA fantasy tropes. I could NOT stop reading, the action and plot keeping me turning the pages while ...

    Prereview March 2019 Ah yes, and here we see publishers begin slapping "perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone" onto any African inspired YA fantasy. On a side note, I personally neither love nor hate the cover, it's okay. Looks like most YA fantasy nowadays. ...
