I absolutely loved and adored this book. I will admit, I was intimidated by the size of it, but I don't think there's a single part of this book that should be removed, if anything - I want more.
The world building was fantastic. I was enamored by the size of the world and details in this book.
This book has everything I could ask for! •Fantastic characters that you will love, hate, root, cry and mourn for.
•Representation through LGBTQ+ relationships that are supported.
•Feminism through Queendoms and Women-lead organizations.
•Pirates, Dragons, and Magic.
The way that the author wrote this is beautiful. The imagery she creates from the smallest details to the largest was probably my favorite thing about this book. The entire thing played like a movie in my head with smooth transitions from one set of characters to the other.
All in all, I loved this book. My only negative would be that the ending was wrapped up very quickly. However, I honestly cant think of a way to make it any better either.
Read this book, it's intimidating as is the world building but persevere, because it's so worth it and an absolute treat.
