VIBES!!!! 
Gothic, mystical, yet darkly cozy. 

the romance was cute but definitely needed more fleshing out as everything happened within the span of a couple weeks. 

the worldbuilding! yes ma’am, I hope that in the next book the world kinda opens up a bit more but with the way this book ended I don’t think we’re going very far.

This book had sooooo many grammatical errors lmao but honestly it was kind of a vibe, it really helped me out of my reading slump! I wouldn’t consider this an enemies to lovers story per se as majority of the book takes place over 7-8 months and the characters fall pretty quickly. There were a lot of characters so that was a bit confusing at times but again just read this book for the vibes.

I don’t think the author knows what the omegaverse is… Also this book made me want to gag several times, why were the characters so dirty all the time??

I enjoyed this book and will definitely read the next one to see what happens but some of the twists and turns were kinda obvious and the characters could’ve been a little more fleshed out

Got this cause I started watching the anime and it’s so good!! A bit more graphic than the show so definitely read at your own risk.
