It's the only thing that can end a war as quickly as it began. It's only suiting that they should venture to Meissa, an island brimmed with monsters whose presence could end Althea's life.
'The plot in this books is so fascinating and unlike any fantasy book I’ve read before...Every time I thought the book was wrapping up and ending, it just kept going with another plot twist. This book is very much about a female lead proving herself as capable as a man. Its got great themes of power and sacrifice.
