Publisher's Summary

Free the crows, Fallon, and they will make you queen.

Until an oracle predicted my regal future, I'd never imagined myself rising above the curve of my round ears. After all, I was the magicless halfling loved by beasts but loathed by every pure-blooded faerie at court. Well...by all but one.

Dante Regio, prince of Luce, had owned my heart since he gave me my first kiss. If gathering a slew of iron relics could help me overthrow the current monarch and crown his brother to rule at my side, then treasure hunting I'd go.

If only the oracle had warned me what winged demon I was releasing into the world.

And that I'd become this demon's obsession.

Fans of Sarah J. Maas and Mary E. Pearson will devour this epic fantasy romance full of deceit, betrayal, and false loves that could swallow a person whole.

Binged it then started #2

My first audiobook ever, and I was not disappointed (I did listen to over 100 samples before picking this book based on the narrator 😂)
I love ACOTAR, fourth wing and those sorts of books so this was a winner.
A bit slow of a storyline but that’s something I personally enjoy.

What a delighted book

I was completely enchanted by this story and can’t wait to read book 2. So many fantasy books are disappointing with contrived plots, annoying whiny heroines or simply badly written but this book was well written with an engaging plot, wonder characters and a very slow burn romance. The narrator was a joy to listen to. Well done.

Why does the fae speak Italian…..

Not sure how this was compared in the same league as SJM but whatever I guess. Story line on but just cringing at the accent and all the Italian speak. Just trying to finish it at this point to hear the end

Fantastic new bent on Fae storytelling

I loved this new world of Fae lore and magic. The story evolves well and was very engaging. Looking forward to listening to the next one.

Loved it !!

I considered if I should really embark on this as many reviews on books claiming to be like SJ Maas have disappointed but I looove looove this story! Love all the characters love the world love it all! ( could have more spice so I take one star off for being a little vanilla in that area and the voices are not my fave but not a deal breaker, I would just switch to my kindle if they were)
Can’t wait to start book two!

Very enjoyable

I’ve been searching so hard to find something as good as SJM books, and FINALLY have found one I’ve finished with eagerness.

Although at times it gets confusing as it is an audiobook and you don’t know if the main character is talking out loud or in her head.

It’s definitely a slow burn book, but hey, I love romance about the fae, powers, and crows! So I loved parts of this story so much.

I’m off to listen to the next one!

What a story

An intricate story. Can’t wait for the next book. The narrator took a little warming up to. Maybe 30 minutes but then you realise she is perfect for the book
