Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire for an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review!
I hemmed and hawed about what I was going to rate this book, because I wasn’t sure at all what I thought it should be, but in the end I settled on three stars.
Deliriously wonderful, and delightfully innovative. Fairytales galore and amazing writing combine to make an adventure. Chupeco is gifted at creating a deft story interwoven with an intriguing plot and carefully crafted characters.
You know what, I didn’t know I needed this book until I read it. It was advertised as similar to a Sorcery of Thorns, but it isn’t really.
When I saw sirens, I knew I wanted to read this book. There is little more I love than sirens and mermaids and well, I couldn’t resist.
Theo — now Thora — was once the Princess of the realm. An invading king killed her mother and kept her captive until Theo, forced to make a hard decision decides to start fighting back.
Jude and her sisters witness their parents’ murder. They are then stolen away to live in Faerie. Years later Jude begins to fight back against the Faerie Prince Cardan. As she struggles she begins to become embroiled in intrigue and other deceptions, but she is a mortal in an immortal world.
When I was accepted for this ARC I was over the moon. Yet, I didn’t read it right away. Why? Because the release date is so far away! But, I decided I might as well read it now before it burns a hole in my pocket. It has also weaseled its way into my heart like its predecessor.
Honestly after reading Leelynn’s review, I was even more excited to dive into this book! The premise was so fascinating to me, and I was ready for this book! It took some time before I was able to get my hands on it, and now that I have I am pleased to say I REALLY liked it!
Is it a five star read?!?! Yes! I even tweeted about it as I read it, which should tell you something. I got ridiculously invested in this world – which is funny because at first I wondered if I was going to like it.
