-A white Queen

A dark King

Her beast found something within

-Heart melted

Body singed

Her mind still felt unhinged

-Close to death by a Judas kiss

His fiery sword pierced her cold center

Releasing her from her tormentor

-A blue flame

A black crown

4.5 , I loved it! I though it was unique. I wish some scenes weren’t as rushed but I was mostly happy with it. I’d love to see more of the world and kids though

I gave it 3 I enjoyed the connection between Elzira & Ryke and the world building was also interesting! I just figured everything out too quickly I think. And I missed the mystery, sense of urgency and desperation that would fit this world sometimes. Guess I wanted more emotional angst It did get me out of a book slump and I loved talking about it on discussion day
