Description

In the end Drake and Cassius could only take the coin (where Kyra was trapped) and wished to make it impossible for dragons to find them, cuz they can’t fullfill their bargain and Azurea would come for them.

Although this book was a thick boi, it was heavily focused on world building and setting up the plot, instead of forcing a romance right away. Favourite quote “ I was a boy born in to nothing and I grew into a man dressed in sin, little goddess.

Cassius, former Royal Guard and protector of the princess, is sentenced to death after he views the princess's face before her Unveiling.

The pacing at times feels uneven, with certain sections dragging on while others rush by too quickly.

I'm fully prepared for them to both spoil and torture us with this loose fairytale retelling of Aladdin and Rapunzel that will follow multiple MF couples and will contain forbidden love, lost gods, and fallen fae! I've seen people complaining about the lack of spice in the book but I didn't mind it in the slightest. I did enjoy the story and will definitely continue with the series but that could be due to a nostalgic enjoyment of the Disney version of Aladdin as this does follow the major plot points of that movie very closely for the most part.

I actually really liked the cliffhanger on this one, I'm excited to see what they bring us with book 2. sure all of that happens, but as a gal who is 100% more invested in characters and relationships the plot didn’t do anything for me. I think she will be the main villain for the first few books maybe before one of the lost gods (that god of vengeance? She is what sucked me into this world when I read the prequel novella and is the reason I held on and didn't turn back from reading this one.

The writing in this is back to being like ZA style, I don't mind it but would've appreciated it if that wasn't the case. Drake is an orphan thief that cares about no one but himself, apologizes for nothing and I'd you think he has an ulterior motive to act, think again. At the beginning of our tale, we meet Austyn, a princess who longs for her freedom and independence while she is trapped by ancient traditions and an empress who seems to control all. I am willing to overlook the issues I had and give it a four stars rating instead of three, simply due to the fact that I enjoyed it fairly a lot and it is the first book in the series.

Broken, deranged, loyal, good-hearted, and all around the light in this book, I lived for her chapters, and for her spirit. If you were a fan of Caroline and Susanne before the release of ZA, then you can probably appreciate the similarities between this series and their Forbidden Fairytales series (which I loved! Cassius and Drake have such a great bromance, but I'm excited to see how their dynamic changes after everything that is unleashed on them. While I’m still not very invested in the couple, I do like this kind of star crossed lovers storyline and will be interested to see how this will turn out.
