First of all this book helped me reach my goal for 2015 of 100 books! This was part of my Christmas haul and I don’t know how I waited this long to read it.
I loved this book so much! This book was full of mysteries and complex characters. I didn’t read the synopsis or any reviews of this book. I went in completely blind and I am glad I did.
The magic that this story contained was so different than the others I read and I loved it. The whole idea of having to give pain to the world to get wishes and magic our of it. It was such a new take on magic that I was surprised and happy with it.
By far the characters were my favorite. Brimstone, Zuzana, Karou, Akiva, and Izil. I loved all of them so much. Each character was unique and had their own traits that made them lovable. I also really loved that that Karou had blue hair! I really want to have at least part of my hair blue.
There were so many things I was not expecting to happen in this book and all the changes and ideas in it were amazing and surprising. I hope the next books are just as amazing as this one.
Overall this book was amazing and I loved it! It had well deserved hype.
