The writing is fantastic. I was drawn in from the very first page and had a hard time setting it aside. I connected more with Nolan than I did with Amara. For a servant girl, Amara was very headstrong and judgmental. I kept rooting for Nolan because he had the worst luck with just about everything. The love interest was not very convincing or believable. I enjoyed the high fantasy atmosphere and the connection the two main characters shared.
This is very mystery driven with questions arising 3/4 of the way. There were plot twists I did not see coming that were refreshing. This is a standalone. The author has a second standalone coming next year and I will definitely give it a try.
