What an addicting fantasy romance – I’ve been flying through this series for the past 24 hours. I don’t know if I was expecting much from this because I’ve never read a Midas retelling before, but I really enjoyed myself. The story is fast and filled with tension and trauma on Auren’s journey to healing, which gets off to a slow start in this book as she has a lot of lies and betrayals to work through. But I love seeing her friendships slowly develop with her guards.

I read this in three hours last night – I literally could not put it down. This series is so addicting. This book really starts to explore the world and characters more and it’s mostly effective (except Queen Malina who is incredibly annoying). But Auren goes through some great character growth in this story and I loved seeing her friendship develop with Rip and the others in the Fourth Army.

I liked getting more worldbuilding in this one and I love the slow burn romance finally starting to really develop. This book probably has the most action – or at least the biggest action piece so far and it was really engaging and leaves you wanting more. Auren has finally come into her own and it feels earned here after unraveling her past in the previous books. I really love that we start to get POVs from other characters – it helps the world feel bigger.

I still really enjoyed this and I really enjoyed getting to know some of the characters in greater detail, especially Slade. The romance definitely ramps up in this installment and the plot takes a backseat before an explosive finale that will leave plenty of action to come in the next installments.

Until next time,
