On the True World, Belinda Loring has known from childhood that she must Bond with the son of another noble First Family. But when the ceremonial magic goes disastrously wrong, Belinda becomes a national disgrace. Scorned as Broken, she turns to Demian for help getting revenge on the man who ruined her: the radical Malachi. But the seeds of Malachi’s murderous plans lie buried in Belinda’s past, in the dark days of her kidnapping – a period of which she has no memory. And Demian may hold the key to recovering all that she’s lost – and saving the worlds.
Note: I received an e-copy of this book via Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
Being approved to receive the ARC of the third book is what got me into the series and I’m so glad I did. I honestly didn’t want the book to end and would’ve loved to see more of what happened in the other worlds after the climax. It’s definitely made it to my favourites list. I wish more people would pick this up and give it a chance because it has some amazing characters, fantastic world-building, a superb plot and an easy-to-follow writing style.
I recommend this book to everyone who can read because, believe me, it is THAT good!
For music, I’d recommend some ambient nature sounds for about 50% of the book to enhance the feel of the setting and the soundtrack of Doctor Strange for the latter half owing to the spectacular world-building.
In terms of food, pick whatever comfort food you love because this will hit you in the feels and the ground will start to shake beneath your feet towards the climax. Mine is a piping hot bowl of noodles.
