4 stars (release date March 6, 2018)
I received a sneak peek of the first six chapters of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Wow. This book starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up. I was only able to read the first 6 chapters. I can’t wait until the book is released so I can read the rest. Zélie Adebola’s mother was a maji and was killed by the King when the magic of the land disappeared. She is a social outcast and lives in fear of being sold into slavery. She inadvertently helps a rogue princess escape the palace guards and discovers that magic may be coming back to the land. Zelie vows to bring back magic and take revenge against the monarchy. I can’t wait to see how this all turns out!
I will update this review once I’ve read the entire book.
