Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

This was a lot of fun! I really liked the lore and all the creatures and the system of the afterlife. It was unique and entertaining and pulled me in. All the characters were interesting with their own complicated stories and goals. They dialogue was funny and there was a lot of talking in circles - which got a little tiresome but overall was entertaining.

The concept of the tables was really cool. I really enjoyed seeing the the secrets of the tables revealed. We get a lot of insights into the past and this was intriguing and allowed us to slowly piece it all together. Fox was the main character though Vi was also important and I really loved her story and plot with Tom Parker IV. She gave us an intro into creatures and her bickering with Tom made me smile.

Fox grew on me once I learnt more of his history and heartache. He was reluctant and sulky and I was here for it. His relationship with Brandt was really well crafted and delivered.

Everything came together expertly and I enjoyed how the tables and their consequences ran through the whole story. The antagonist was great and I liked seeing how he got there. As always with Olivie’s books there’s a lot of philosophising and rambling but I’m here for it. Overall a really well put together story with a lot of different elements. All the characters brought something interesting to the story. It was fun and unique and heartfelt.

A bit about me… I love all things morally grey and magical! 

My favourite series is Red Rising and I’m sucker for found family. 

I drink way too much tea and live out my fantasy dreams by visiting medieval festivals and doing archery! 

If I’m not reading you’ll find me writing my book or dreaming of far away places.
