🎥 In a Snapshot
🔊 Hit play if you prefer to listen to the review:
This is a duology, with its second book coming at the end of this year.
Ross has given us evidence of profound writing, a touching and challenging journey with a rollercoaster of emotions. It brought me back to Rebecca Yarros’s excruciating but magnificent “The Things We Leave Unfinished,” but with a touch of magic and fantasy.
What to Expect
- War, death and devastation
- Beautiful romance
- Well-built characters
- In the crossroad of historical fiction and fantasy
- A touch of magic
- Divine forces at play
What I Missed
- My only doubt is the gods’ involvement. Even though their war is the starting point for the story, I felt a disconnection between the realism and the fantasy. I don’t understand it fully at this point. This book could’ve responded better as a historical fiction or magical realism. However, I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and hope the next book gives us the answers.
