This series just gets better and better! The fantasy world that Jody Hedlund is creating with this series is phenomenal and it is easy to immerse yourself into the settings and lives of the characters in each individual novel. Karina is compassionate, kind, and selfless while Torvald is the grumpy brooding hero that makes an interesting dynamic for their developing relationship. Their romance is clean but still full of swoon worthy kisses. I also loved the interwoven themes of forgiveness and unconditional love. The quest and mystery in the book kept my attention from beginning to end. Even though this series has been marketed to young adults, I think readers of any age will enjoy these novels! I am excited to read the rest of the series. Highly recommended!
