-I love the idea of song magic! That was the coolest part of the book
-Friends to lovers
-polyamory (side characters)
-As other reviews said… it was kind of bland and there was no real build up. It was a decent story but the plot and the romance in it were not really strong.

I recommend Of Fire and Stars over Ruinsong because it still has a sapphic couple, elemental magic, royalty/court politics, a similar scene to one in this book
Spoiler where the couple rides a horse together. it’s cute lol
and the romance in that book stands out more.

This was just what the doctor ordered: queer fantasy.

It takes you into a really interesting world, where a revolution occurred some years back, and now the nobility are openly-reviled by the ruler.

There's also a song-magician class of people who are more open to the changing norms. Poly-relationships are referred to, most characters in this book are under the queer umbrella (which is why I don't mind that the villain is queer, because there is so much representation). 

There was so much world-building that I'm really hoping for more in this world.
