3.5 I liked a lot of the worldbuilding and the fantasy world that was crafted. I felt the ending was a bit rushed and the book actually could've been longer.

This book was FANTASTIC! I loved the plot and the characters, the story kept me on my feet. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves fantasy. I loved the focus on the female characters while not throwing the male characters under the bus. This book handles the LGBTQ elements of the story with grace. This story felt like the way fantasy should be heading in 2019.

“All the world is a cage in a young girl’s eyes.”

“But when the heart grows too full, it overflows. And mine, inevitably, overflows on to a page.”

“No woman should be made to fear that she is not enough.”

“Just because something has always been done does not mean that it ought to be done.”

“You promised you would return to me. Queens do not forget promises made, Eadaz.”

Exceptionally written, flawless fantasy. I could lose myself in this world forever.
