My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I will not even attempt to cover up my love for this series, THIS is how you DO EPIC FANTASY and do it RIGHT. Ceda's story continues and the magic, and the world. and the action and the pacing and everything is how it is supposed to be. Young writers take note, this is how you do it.

This is a great series, make yourself happy and start from the beginning and read them all.

(apologies for short review, but I only gush so much in one day, my tank is empty)

This was an amazing read, 2018 is hitting on all cylinders right out of the gate. Deep worldbuilding, interesting ideas and a Asian inspired grimdark style bleak as hell fantasy? YES PLEASE!

There was no issues with me and this book, I look forward to more. The story felt young adult-ish to me but then I was quickly proven wrong, and I like when I am wrong. The fantasy elements had a interesting bend and although the dark almost overshadowed the story telling, I am eager to see where this goes.

High recommendation, if you are into the grimdark, this is your jam...maybe fantasy debut of 2018 (its early..but this will be tough to beat)
