Thank you NetGalley and Rose and Star Publishing for the books! Here I leave my honest review.

This book is such a roller coaster journey and give me a mental breakdown!

That’s how I want to describe my experience while reading this book. I really love the first book and can’t wait for the second one to publish. When I heard this book supposed to publish on 2024, I was delighted but also still hoping can get a glimpse of the story first but suddenly they announce that this book publish on May 2023! And fortunately I got the book from NetGalley, I never click request to a book that fast! But despite all the excitement, I got reading slump and must read this book slowly (well I need almost 1 month to finish the book!) because it’s so thick! But everything is so worth it!

For me this book is such a perfection! I love everything that happen from the beginning to the end. Like I said, reading this book really feels like ride a roller coaster but I can’t predict when will I go up or down.

Dianna is a great villain but also great main character. From the first book we know how Dianna become on the “dark” side but she’s become a better character. But in this book, we see Dianna go rampage, kill all the people that hurt her beloved one. The one who once her friend or at the same side at least, now become her target. She’s so lost, so hurt, showing all the bad things she can do to the world. Here we see the real power of Dianna. How scary it is to become her enemies. But it also sad at the same time. She’s so lost that she turn from the people who actually care for the real her. For at least 50% on this book, we will see the stress, frustrating Dianna and how she refuse everyone around her. You must prepare your heart to see how hurt Dianna is and how hurt is also for Samkiel because he lost her too.

Samkiel is such a great character here! I love him so much. Especially when it comes to Dianna. He become the only one who believes on Dianna and care for her. He never leave Dianna, never turn from her, help her to cure, help her to find her peace, respected Dianna's wishes and did not force her will at all. But he still carry out his responsibility as the king.

Dianna and Samkiel relationship is also so good. Their tension, their longing for each other. I love to see their banter again, especially from Dianna who didn’t want to see or hear his name. Their connection is so deep and perfectly described. Every thing about their love story is so good!

 If you love her, truly love her, don’t give up. True love is worth it. It’s worth fighting for. Remember that. 

I feel familiar while reading the second book, I believe it has ACOTAR series vibes in it. Totally different plot but the vibes in there. Especially if its with The Hand. The Hand is Samkiel warrior and family. I love to see them with Dianna and how they love each other so deep. If you love ACOTAR, you will love this too I think.

The plot is progress really well. The plot twist everywhere, some I can predict but the other can not at all. After 80% on the book, the plot back again to the main plot. With all the bad guy with Kaden, etc. I love how author open up the twist one by one and affect all conflict on this book. This book also has multiple POV. Not only from Dianna or Samkiel, we also get other POV from member of The Hand and Kaden. Kind of surprising to see villain POV here, but with his POV we know more about their back story and I still hate him of course.

This book again end with cliffhanger. Now I can’t wait for the third book. With this I gave this book rate 5/5 ⭐! Absolute perfection for me, the characters, the conflicts, found family, love story. Every thing is great. Please read this if you love romance fantasy so much!
