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.🤌
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. 🙆♀️👌🤤
It has ALL - let me repeat that in case you didn't get it the first time: 𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐁𝐄𝐒𝐓 𝐓𝐑𝐎𝐏𝐄𝐒! Are you ready?!
✔️Badass stabby heroine (assassin!)
✔️Immortal scary but yummy hero
✔️Enemies to lovers
✔️I came to kill you
✔️Sword to the throat
✔️Who did this to you?
I wish I could read it for the first time again.🥰🥺
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 welcome🤗
Many THANKS to Entangledteen for the opportunity to read this gem! 😘
