Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

(I absolutely love this book, it has become one of my favourite cosy reads ever! That’s it, that’s the review)

If I could, I would give this book more than 5⭐️! I adored this book so much!

We follow Ffion and Prince Taliesin on this journey that will change their lives, through the ups and down of trusting and letting new people in, of love and family. Let me start by saying I absolutely love her standing up for what’s right - and not do things just because “that’s how it’s done”. Just like Ffion, I am a believer that you don’t need to step on anyone to achieve your goals, no matter how long it takes. She is absolutely lovely and it’s amazing to see her grow during the story and the outcome of her hard work. Prince Taliesin is a bit of a mischievous character but he definitely has a good heart and I felt that him and Ffion brought the best of each other and were needed in this journey not only to save the kingdom but also to find themselves and their place in the world. And then we have Prince Dafydd, who’s not interested in the throne and just wants to live a humbling life.

The way all these characters’ lives intertwined was magical. The writing was very lovely and easy to get into, the world was simple but interesting and easy to get yourself immersed. We have fantastic tropes such as found family, second chances, a well done love triangle, slow burn and a personal favourite, a one bed inn! I wouldn’t say there’s enemies-to-lovers as I don’t think they start as enemies, they’re simply strangers in need of each other help to achieve their own goals that slowly become friends and gently something more.

I super super recommend this book if you like YA witchy cosy fantasies with a sub genre of romance and family relationships. This was extremely heartwarming and beautiful and I am definitely reading it again next spooky season! I would say this is a lovely blend between Emily Wilde by Heather Fawcett, Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson, The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin and A Far Wilder Magic by Allison Saft!

Whisporia Rep

I am an avid reader, always looking for my next superb read and a fantasy lover! I adore far too many books and if I were to pick my latest gem of a book, it would be ‘The Poisons We Drink’ by Bethany Baptist! 

Others from my repertoire of forever in my heart also include, ‘The Whispering Dark’ by Kelly Andrew, ‘The Nature of Witches’ by Rachel Griffin and the classics of ‘The Shadowhunter Chronicles’ by Cassie Clare! 

When not surrounded by book, I like to look at flowers, visit new places and be with my partner! I am also obsessed with the colour pink!
