  • BOOK REVIEW 🗡✨ 3.75/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ One of the reasons why I enjoyed this book and the series overall is because of the characters, and how even when there is the option to take the easier, more typical route they choose the other. This book follows the POV of Princess Lia Mara and Grey who I both adored for different reasons. Lia Mara is a woman who’s bravery is something I admire, because she is a person who doesn’t allow herself to become a product of her environment. She strives to make a difference through means of peace which is something that is seen as a weakness to her mother and the people of syth Shallow. Which constantly places her as outcast within her family especially because her sister always follows her mothers lead without question. Due to this I expected Lia Mara’s relationship with her sister to be strained and full of jealousy, but rather they a two very different young women with opposing beliefs who still love and support one another as best as they can. Now onto Grey who’s a character I really liked in ‘curse’ but fell in love with this time around. Grey sort of remind of Percy Jackson in the sense that he would do absolutely anything for his friends because he is loyal to a fault. Greys friendships with all the other characters is something that I loved reading about because they were all so unique and different . But the best thing about this book was seeing he’s character development which was so perfectly paced that by the end you could see that he’d really come into himself as a character. The reason this is a 3.75 star book is because there was no Harper POV chapters which I was disappointed by because she’s one of my favourite characters. I also felt like they abruptly backtracked with Rhen character arc, because he was suddenly this big bad, even though at the end we sort of get an explanation I feel as though it still didn’t justify He’s behaviour. #spoilerfree #aheartsofierceandbroken
