I don't often give books 5 star, but I really couldn't find anything I disliked about this book.


It was quite focused on character and world building at the start of the book so moves a little slow, but it is written beautifully and its very engaging. It really picks up and I couldn't put it down. 


I really enjoyed that it is written from third person perspective following each of the sisters, and a few of the other characters. 


I really don't want to say too much and ruin the experience for anyone, I had gone into this only having read the synopsis and avoiding everyone's reviews and I think that was the perfect way to read it. It is such an epic roller coaster of a book and shows a darker side to fantasy then what you usually see. It has so many twists that I never saw coming!! 


I would recommend everyone gives this a go, but especially if you're looking for a fantasy that's quite unique and darker then usual, I'm really looking forward to the next book!
