I have heard a lot about this one on social media so I knew I had to join this tour! Thank you to the Fantastic Flying Book Club for including me on this tour.
You can see a summary and my review of the book below!
by Coco Ma
Publisher: Blackstone Publishing
Release Date: October 1st 2019
I was absolutely stunned and blown away by this book! I couldn’t believe that it was a debut because it felt so compelling, entrancing and interesting. This story follows Asterin, who is the princess of the kingdom that this book is set in. She is such a strong character and I loved her so much! She takes it upon herself to save her entire kingdom and that takes so much bravery, going up against a demon that has defeated everyone before her. The world-building in this book is pretty wild. I couldn’t believe the detail that the author went to in order to create her world and that it truly worked so well together. The supporting characters are just as amazing as the main character. They’re like this group of friends (or misfits, if you like) who go on an adventure together in order to fight this terribly scary force that threatens their world.
I have to say that the twists in this book are CRAZY! I definitely didn’t see them coming at all and they were just so shocking. I can appreciate when a book can shock me because I am fairly good at figuring out a story but this one was just so awesome. I am so excited that there will be a second book because wow! This story needs to be told more and after that ending, I am eagerly anticipating the next one. I am impressed that this is the author’s first novel that she began writing at age 15! The ideas, development and characters are by far so unique. There is magic in this book as well as romance and there’s a perfect balance of that. A sort of love to hate relationship that you can’t get enough of. I think they worked well together and it wasn’t an instant love so I enjoyed that aspect too!
