I would give this book 4.5 for a review.


In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.

That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.

But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them. 

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this read. I really adored the main characters in this read. I was immediately captured by the world building. I also loved how this book was structured and this book had a huge element of This and Then and that type of story telling of how this one “event” transformed this world was so well crafted. I love the political intrigue that was at the base of this novel. I also really loved the unexpected romance that suprised me in this novel. I thought the bad guys in this book was so well crafted and the end of this book left me with so many lingering questions that i know need answers for. I will be def checking out book 2 in the future
