I received this book from the author in return for an honest review..
◾The plot was essentially wonderful.
◾The writing was grand and exceptionally pleasing to me.
◾The characters were very developed and admirable.
🔳 Cari – I liked her character and I agreed with Elissa when she said Cari acted ‘motherly’ towards her. I can relate.
🔳 Elissa – I thoroughly enjoyed her character, she was extremely well developed and I felt a connection with her thoughts and emotions. I could relate to her more than any of the others.
🔳 Mit – I always thought he was decent and humorous. Personality aside, I wasn’t particularly routing for him to get with Elissa.
🔳 Holis (aka. Bat) – I was your biggest fan! I wanted you to be the one more than anything. (view spoiler)
🔳 Tull – Sweet, sweet Tully. You were always so gentle and had a heart of gold. UGH I loved you so much (I didn’t exactly want Elissa to pick you but you still held my heart in your precious hands).
🔳 Other guys who weren’t particularly a huge deal – I apologize in advance for routing for none of you. Hopefully your ego isn’t damaged.
🔳 All of Elissa’s Siblings – I appreciated all of you equally, you were very caring in all in your own specific ways. I found myself aweing at your actions (all of you)
🔳 Elissa’s Parents – I salute you both, in the beginning it was rocky for the father part but I found myself loving him in the end (as a father). Pelidne (the mom) reminded me of my own mom, and was very sweet, caring, and you could tell she loved her children dearly.
I truly loved this book, it melted my heart into a little puddle of happiness and left me content in my surrounding feels. I could relate to so much that happened it was almost unreal. This book was like a safety net for me, in the book world. I knew from page one, I was going to enjoy it. I don’t typically fall into the magic of fantasy-contemporary genre, because I personally have never been a huge fan of fantasy. This book was highly well written and I loved every second! I felt a connection with the characters, I laughed quite a bit. It was a little emotional, but the melancholy feels weren’t hitting completely home for me. I don’t usually appreciate the whole ‘daddy issues’ thing in books, but this was completely understandable and was settled exceptionally well. This was a constant page turner for me and I was engrossed in the story 100%. I only gave this book 4.5⭐ because the just ending wasn’t enough for me. I wanted more! I’m not a huge fan of endings that leave me with tons of unanswered questions. Overall I was in love with this book!
