Alright, SO, if you've read my reviews for the first two books in the series, you'll know that I've been thoroughly enjoying my time reading this. It's fluffy, trope-y, and just pure entertainment. I've loved learning about all of the different creatures and I definitely want to take a trip to Katmere Academy.

BUT...

This book left me in the dust. I think maybe it just needed to be two separate books? Like pre-prison and getting out of prison? Because so much happened before Hudson and Grace were locked up, but even more happened while they were in there and I got super lost. Like really super lost. I had absolutely no clue what was going on and had the toughest time following as they tried to get out.

Also, what was with the number of betrayals in this one? I literally never learned who I could trust. Even by the end there were people I was still confused about.

And the end... I genuinely shed tears towards the end. Losing characters is never fun but this one stung more than I anticipated. Maybe because I didn't see it coming like I had for the character death in Crave. However, the resurrections for other characters drove me a little batty. Like yes, we get it, they can't die yet, but also... it could've been good if they had?

This is such a rambly review and I feel like that happens after a few books in a series. I get less structured with my thoughts because it's all just how the book makes me feel.

This one made me feel confused and I wanted more from it. Hoping Court brings the good stuff.
