About this deal

There is a lot going on And there are people coming for the Crown but you also find out quickly that there are lots of Fae In this book and you realize that the throne was taken by Elisa's distant relatives that are now dead. Inspiration is fine but I would say this trips it over more than just a fan fiction of Blood and Ash. Sin embargo, debe ceder si quiere salvar a su padre moribundo, así que se pone en manos del atractivo Legion Grey, su negociador matrimonial, por el que no puede evitar sentirse atraída.

I didn't love the racism aspect of the book but it was handled well and I'm looking forward to seeing where the plot goes.

So I've been in a book slump for The last month and I happened to come across this author's tiktok And read the blurb and I sat on the book for a few weeks until I saw another TikTok And decided to take the plunge because I noticed that the last book comes out soon So by the time I finish Reading needs the last one will be out. I think how they tied the blood wraith into who Legion Gray was and how he was and how he is actually valid the last nightprints really sets up the rest of the series and how Ari it comes in to play for the next book. The book opens with our main character, Elise, sneaking into a gambling den dressed as a man to play a game of cards. Whist at times it’s pretty easy to read and flows naturally, there are words and aspects thrown in that seem to have been taken from the Victorian Era that are not as commonly used.

I honestly feel like I’m rereading ‘Blood and Ash’, but the characters are posher and I constantly need a dictionary.But his skin and eyes glimmered with the unique dark shade of Ettans, the people mine enslaved during the raids. The white saviour trope, for reference, is where a white character steps in to rescue non-white characters from their problems.

I had to immediately start the second book because I absolutely fell in love with Elise and Legion and need to know what happens next! The characters “ride for what feels like hours” to get somewhere but then Elise manages to get back to her home on foot within a day. It was a different and interesting story with how the world is set up, to characters, roles, backgrounds and magic systems. The castle is a long ride away from where she lives but it can always be seen in the distance from other areas.You also find out that Legion is not who you think he is and has been cursed to not remember who he is. It’s often mentioned that because she is not the heir, she can have affairs or have children while unmarried. I'm just thrilled to have found this series because I very much still have a hole-shaped like the Blood And Ash Series in my heart because I'm waiting for more books to be released. When she isn't writing she's keeping her four kids alive, spending time with her hot husband, or enjoying the mountains of Utah. Legion is by far my favourite character as he is the most complex and developed and the things he says and does are swoon inducing.

Lo que sí que me gusta mucho es que pese a ser una saga de 9 libros, en realidad está subdividida en 3 trilogías, todas ambientadas en el mismo mundo. Most authors who mix other languages or making up their own terms they tend to give a glossary so readers are not thrown out of story looking up words.

This is inherently problematic - it removes the ‘good’ white people from the issue, absolving them of the blame and placing it onto others; while refusing to acknowledge the systems behind and complicity with the issues at hand. I will say that with the book series having 7 books and this book being 350 pages it can be a lot and there are parts that are somewhat slow in the book but I don't think the book needs to be Shorter or any parts taken out becauyes there's so much back story going on that each part of the book is taking a step towards telling the story and I think it's needed. The reason for that may be heavily influenced by two things: (1) it was narrated by Stina Nielsen, who I love, and (2) its plot and characters are VERY similar to the From Blood and Ashes series by Jennifer Armentrout…which was also narrated by Stina Nielsen. At the end of the book we find the FMC and the MMC separated but you understand why even though the decisions might not be the best You can understand why they're in place and why they happened.
