I am growing to enjoy this series more each book. It is def not a new fav but I really liked bitter blue story in this one. I really liked all he court elements. I also found it be really fun world. I also liked how bitterablue really was out of her element building this world back from her father reign. It was fun read. It am def going to check out the newer books soon. But i sometimes struggled with the pacing. ( )

I loved all the books in the series but the intrigue and mystery, as well as piecing all three stories together makes this my favourite. ( )
