Author: Andrew Shvarts
Released date: May 30 2017
Got my copy via Netgalley for an exchange of honest review! Thank you Disney-Hyperion!
This is the very fast paced book that I’ve ever read this year. Man, every word is a beat of the heart and I really love the twist of the royals and the battling between them is really great. There some annoying stuffs but you can handle them very well. I love digging to the stories of different characters and the more I read, the more I learn from their lands and culture.
The story surrounds to Tilla, who is a royal bastard in Lord Kent heir and he has a half-brother, Jax that lives in a stables. One night in the feast of the Westerns, where all nobles are joined and even the bastards of each royalties, Miles and Zell. There is the soon-to-be-Queen, that they mostly waited, Lady Lyriana, who will rule after his father death. Lady Lyriana wants to explore the world and willing to take risks as long as she set her foot in the ocean, Tilla found it bad idea, but doesn’t have a choice. All five of them leadLyriana to see the ocean until all of five of them witness a dreadful battle and killings in the ocean that leads them a great danger.
I found this book interesting and well captivated. It’s just the characters, especially Miles, I’m pretty annoyed to him in some points. But to overall the characters, as young as they are, they could already think of survival and how will they battle each day of their travel. It’s not just about royalties and such but the bond of these characters are well blended and they got this team effort, as long as they stick together and make it through the day. But the part of the ending torn me apart and broke my trust and sighting of all things!
I love the part when they’re having storytelling and how they’re powers are created, especially on the Mages. I somehow love and hate Miles since I love his genius act I just hate is heart turning to be bad as sort and I wish I could kill him in every second in the book! Zell and Tilla, they’re just amazing! Amazing and adorable, I’m so into they’re love story even though it looks childish! Jax, oh my Jax, I seriously love him and also Lyriana, they’ve made absolutely a cute couple!
Overall, the book is lovely and this is one of my anticipated reads this 2017! I finished this book in just one sitting in the office since I really can’t put it down. If you are into GOT kind of books, this Young adult High fantasy novel, is perfectly fit on you!
