Примечание редактора

An engrossing fantasy…

An engrossing fantasy debut inspired by West African folklore. Princess Karina is looking for a way to resurrect her mother, while refugee Malik has to kill Karina if he wants to save his sister. The two end up falling for each other during their quests to undermine the other, and they get caught in much larger political machinations.

Описание

An instant New York Times bestseller!

The first in a gripping fantasy duology inspired by West African folklore in which a grieving crown princess and a desperate refugee find themselves on a collision course to murder each other despite their growing attraction—from debut author Roseanne A. Brown. This New York Times bestseller is perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Renée Ahdieh, and Sabaa Tahir.

For Malik, the Solstasia festival is a chance to escape his war-stricken home and start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous desert city of Ziran. But when a vengeful spirit abducts his younger sister, Nadia, as payment to enter the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia's freedom.

But Karina has deadly aspirations of her own. Her mother, the Sultana, has been assassinated; her court threatens mutiny; and Solstasia looms like a knife over her neck. Grief-stricken, Karina decides to resurrect her mother through ancient magic . . . requiring the beating heart of a king. And she knows just how to obtain one: by offering her hand in marriage to the victor of the Solstasia competition.

When Malik rigs his way into the contest, they are set on a heart-pounding course to destroy each other. But as attraction flares between them and ancient evils stir, will they be able to see their tasks to the death?

"Magic creates a centuries-long divide between peoples in this stunning debut novel inspired by North African and West African folklore. An action-packed tale of injustice, magic, and romance, this novel immerses readers in a thrilling world and narrative reminiscent of Children of Blood and Bone." (Publishers Weekly, "An Anti-Racist Children's and YA Reading List")

    I loved it. I did guess correctly on who was behind the assassination. I didn't guess all the moving parts though. It was such a fun read. The voice actors did a fantastic job.

    A brilliant tale of magic and tale twists that leaves the reader captivated.

    I’ve been staying away from Young Adult lately, but this blew the last dozen or so I’ve read out of the water. It pulled me right in when I wasn’t even anticipating actually getting into the book yet.

    The world: West African inspired, rich, intriguing and new
    The characters: playing on expectations, characters with anxiety and migraines whose motivations you can understand
    The plot: well-paced, interesting, no insta-love, some of the best tropes done well

    Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I will definitely be keeping my eye on the progress of the series. I think this one does a really good job to set up further books without feeling like it’s summarising or rushing.

    Audiobook: I liked the narration and the speed, but found the volume difference between the two narrators annoying. I was constantly turning the volume up or down at each chapter.

    The book starts off slow, but when it gets going it Gooooes. I loved the cast of characters even though some of them were deceitful bastards. The world building is amazing and I loved the folklore aspect of the story. I can't wait for book two, I need it now.
