I loved this from start to finish. Felicity's story kept me engaged the whole time with the dark academia vibes and the slight thriller themes throughout the story. The ending was perfect in my opinion.

Pros: Dark academia, murdered "witches" in history, an all feminine cast, queer as heck. Ellis.

Cons: I wish the mystery towards the end had been written a little sooner in the story to really add to the thriller element.
