I’d like to thank Lady Amber’s Tours and Casey L. Bond for sending me an e-arc of this it is very much appreciated. So I am obsessed with this series! This is not the first book I’ve read of hers, I read Riches to Rags, Savage Beauty, Glamour of Midnight, and Unlocked. I loved all of them so I had very high hopes for this one and they were met!
So we first met Carden in Riches to Rags, and we get his backstory he left his Kingdom because he didn’t agree with his father’s actions and leaving was easier than staying. I loved his character, he was so funny and caring although he got mega jealous when it came to Arabella and Rule at any point. I felt so bad for him when Queen Coeur was playing all her tricks on him and Arabella. Although it made for an interesting story!
Arabella, I felt so bad for her having to deal with her father than her brother practically not wanting her around all the time. She was so caring and kind of stupidly trusting as well. I enjoyed her character.
Queen Coeur and Rule, they were an interesting pair, she basically wanted her son to be obsessed with her. It was a very interesting dynamic and I loved it! The way they both would be trying to play each other to get what they want. It was actually very entertaining to see Rule piss his mother off all the time.
I loved all the banter. The story was told from mostly Carden and Arabella’s point of view but it did have the odd Rule point of view thrown in there when it was needed. I really enjoyed reading from their point of view.
The heartmate business within this story was very interesting and the fact you could have kind of more than one connection. I would love to read more about the heartmate any couple. This is where we see Esmeralda who is Rule’s heartmate being hidden from the Queen, as she is jealous and wants Rule’s world to start and end with her. As well as the tethered business, it was really interesting. The story actually had many interesting things including the unseen and cursed I loved them and especially Brave. I wanted to know more and more about this world like we got given enough it was built amazingly and fleshed out. I think I just want to know more it never feels like enough maybe because there is so much to soak up and learn.
The story was so cute and I loved the ending it was unbelievably sweet, I fell in love with all of the characters in the book and I wanted more I could have read anything to do with these. I loved the plot, the characters and the story. It was very intense and fast paced and I loved it.
