Book review: Last of the Talons by Sophie Kim

Hi everyone! 

Today I want to introduce you to a new author and one of my fave books of the year: Last of the Talons by Sophie Kim. ๐Ÿงก

Goodreads / My Instagram 

Release date: September 27, 2022

Rating: 5 stars

⚠️Warning: fangirly post ahead

For everyone who loves their heroine scarred but badass, their hero powerful, lethal but with a deliciously wicked smile, their world rich, filled with action and myths that transport you to a different continent, in a different time: this book can't be missed! It's Korean history and mythology at their finest.๐ŸคŒ

This was my first venture into a Asian/Korean world but it will definitely not be the last! So magical, unique, whismical and deadly. Different from everything else out there but at the same time, having everything we hope to find in our fantasy books. 

A heroine with a difficult past who is forced to travel into a land of powerful creatures,set to kill their leader; court politics, intrigue, killing plots, action, adventure and a hero who pushes all her buttons and who makes her to want to kill him more every day - or get closer to him for all the forbidden reasons. A hero who can end the world on a whim, but who finds a spark and someone worth living for. These two... I can't even. ๐Ÿ™†‍♀️๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿคค

It has ALL - let me repeat that in case you didn't get it the first time: ๐€๐‹๐‹ ๐“๐‡๐„ ๐๐„๐’๐“ ๐“๐‘๐Ž๐๐„๐’! Are you ready?!


✔️Badass stabby heroine (assassin!)

✔️Immortal scary but yummy hero

✔️Enemies to lovers

✔️Forbidden love

✔️Slow burn

✔️I came to kill you

✔️Forced proximity


✔️Sword to the throat

✔️Who did this to you?


I wish I could read it for the first time again.๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅบ 

I can't wait for this book to become all the rave! I want it to be a bestseller. I want it in special edition boxes with sprayed edges and foiled covers. I want reels and aesthetics. I want it on favorite lists. I want bonus chapters from HIS pov. I want a fangroup where we can all swoon and squeal over best scenes. 

Totally recommend to all fantasy lovers out there, it's a very unique story, with strong characters and beautiful, imaginative writing. Add it to your TBR and preorder asap. You're welcome๐Ÿค—

Many THANKS to Entangledteen for the opportunity to read this gem! ๐Ÿ˜˜

I'm back???

 Hi everyone! 

It's been a long time. A really, REALLY long time... that seemed to pass in the blink of an eye. 

I guess that's how your twenties go, right? LOL 

I'll admit I haven't read a lot in the past few years, with all the crazy real life adventures. BUT I kept up with Goodreads, with my favorite authors, series and the friends I've made in this bookish community. So I've been away, but always kept the door open because reading will always be my favorite pastime. 

I started reading a lot more lately (because pandemic and lots of down time) so I kinda miss talking books with like minded people. I don't think I will ever be as active as before here, but I started a Bookstagram account and reconnected with NetGelley and started buying tons of books again... With Instagram and TikTok I see books everywhere now so it's hard to stay away LOL. So here we are. 

I still love Romance and Fantasy the most.

So for starters - I want to mention the books I read in May, because for the first time in a long time I discovered a lot of awesome 4.5-5 stars books and I want everyone to read them too so we can fangirl!
