Threads that Bind by Kika Hatzopoulou - Book Review

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked the setting, it felt like urban fantasy and a noir detective feel. The explanation about why the world was they way it was was interesting and I liked the storms and flooding the city experienced. The magic was also unique, with select people having powers given by different Gods, we got to lean about a range of abilities and they were all interesting and their inspiration clear.

The mystery was intriguing and had lots of different plot points thread through the story. I enjoyed seeing them slowly uncover the truth and loved how Io dealt with it all in the end. Io was a good character and I particularly liked learning about her complex history with her sisters. This was slowly revealed throughout and played an important role. I thought it was well written and definitely a highlight for me.

The romance was minimal though I’m expecting it have a bigger role in the sequel. I honestly wasn’t interested in the romance but I did like how it was left. Overall I really enjoyed this story! It was easy to read with a compelling plot and a dynamic setting with an intriguing magic system.

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.
