Finally read this book.

This book (series) is very known for its enemies-to-lover trope in bookstagram and booktok community. I was, of course, intrigued but it didn't last long when i found out this book also have a heavy politics plot.

Honestly, i thought i was gonna have a very hard time finishing this because of the politics aspect but halfway through i was kinda enjoying it and i didn't even complain about the lack of romance development.

Some characters were really annoying and infuriating. Some are sus but i think i can let it slide.

Yesssss! I love it! But i can't give it five stars.
Spoiler Is it just me or did they (Jude, Cardan and his gang) somtimes behave like 12 year olds? I'm sorry but kicking dirt in to her food, really? Sometimes it felt like they wanted to be older than they really are.

I liked this book. It started a little slow for me, but in the second half of the book, i got way more invested. I actually didnt see the plottwist coming. I am excited to continue reading this series.
