ExcUSE ME, what gave this book THE RIGHT to break me like this?!?! This is an incredible story — phenomenally complex characters, the most incredible setting, & a deadly plot. Y‘all know I ADORE stories about bloodthirsty politics. But while you might come for the murderous, magical setting, you stay for the family, & the unforgettable characters — fierce, sweet, and all the shades in between. I can‘t wait to see where this goes next! ★★★★★.
