I would give this book 5 for a review.


Tala Warnock has little use for magic – as a descendant of Maria Makiling, the legendary Filipina heroine, she negates spells, often by accident. But her family’s old ties to the country of Avalon (frozen, bespelled, and unreachable for almost 12 years) soon finds them guarding its last prince from those who would use his kingdom’s magic for insidious ends. 

And with the rise of dangerous spelltech in the Royal States of America; the appearance of the firebird, Avalon’s deadliest weapon, at her doorstep; and the re-emergence of the Snow Queen, powerful but long thought dead, who wants nothing more than to take the firebird’s magic for her own – Tala’s life is about to get even more complicated….

My Thoughts:

This book was such a welcome surprise. I loved both the set up of this book and also how this book was structured. I really was impressed and captured by the world building throughout the whole novel. I thought the main characters were super easy to become invested in and also really loved the “rag tag bunch of heroes”. I also really enjoyed the various fairy tale characters that used to that filled this world . I really loved the pace of this novel and found this book to be both super heartfelt but also really funny read. I thought some moments the world building could of been clearer but I think because this world was so vast, it was understandable. I really am excited for more books in this series eventually!
