Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had a feeling I would love this one and I’m so happy I did. It has a lot of complex world building at the beginning to get your head around but It wasn’t too much and I really liked the world. Roman inspired, it was fully developed, layered and with a lot of intricate details that I enjoyed learning about.

Vis was a really interesting character and I liked how Islington delivered the introduction to him. He’s got strong beliefs and a complex past and seeing him step into the world he’s been avoiding is very interesting. Training, academy and spying, the plot is unpredictable and gripping and full of surprises.

I loved all the side characters and the different roles they play and really the whole story was brought together beautifully with lots of interesting themes explored... In a world ruled by the oppressors, are the people who conform at fault for holding them up? Overall I really enjoyed, it’s definitely one I won’t be forgetting any time soon!

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.
