“Most of what she knew, she‘d learned from the wild. Nature had nurtured, tortured, and protected her when no one else would” (pg. 363). Excellent book. Perfect read for a muggy summer day! I devoured it in two days!
I was SO excited for this book. Historical fiction, romance, & fantasy - it sounded right up my alley. I was disappointed. The premise of the novel is extremely clever, but I didn‘t like the execution of it. The characters felt flat to me. There were stretches of the book where I felt quite bored.
With that being said, I liked the ending.
It wasn‘t a bad book. It wasn‘t a great book. I‘m very apathetic about it. I give it a solid 2.5/5 stars.
