This book is action packed, and I finished it in just three days! I loved the main characters, especially Ellen and Iori! Really loved how Iori learnt to trust people, make friends and was given a second chance in life. Also loved how Ellen was willing to fight for the people she loves and how she has so much faith in them. 

The world building in this book is top notch and creative, and so well thought out! I loved how the book discusses the different powers of the Keepers, and how people used magic to help or hinder others. 

Really loved the character growth in Iori and Alexander, and I liked Kyani too. Also thought Tatiana was hilarious!

This book is a great mix of plotting and characterisation - I could almost never predict what was going to happen, although I did manage to predict who the Keeper of the Heart Suit would be. :) 

Also loved the insightful discussions on mental health and trauma, and how trauma affected the characters in different ways. 

I look forward to reading anything else the author will write.
