What a great debut novel!
I loved all the characters , both Ahn and Altan were broken in their own way but it was amazing to see their healing journey. I loved their banter!
Ahn: she was everything I like in a heroine , I could feel what she was feeling. She is courageos and loyal to fault. And she loves food. A girl after my own heart
Altan: oh boy , he is a tortured sould but he has every reason to be. He is smart and witty!
The side characters also stole the show! I can honestly say I loved all of them.
Leiye : I’m a sucker for him , Shady bad boy. Give me more please . I was very surprised by him but I still didn’t quite figure him out ( other than the fact that I would marry him) . I can’t wait to see what’s in store for him next!
Tang Wei : a certified badass but also a cinnamon roll when it comes to her friends and especially her beloved girl.
Linxi: very skilled at what she does , I was going to describe her more in detail but I realized I don’t know how without spoiling the story 😂
Tai Shun : a tortured soul with a heart of gold 👀
The world building was great and I can’t wait for the next one!
If you are looking for a read with lgtbq+ representation, badass characters, political intrigues filled with magic and secrets. This is for you!
