Hello, hello lovelies! It’s been so long and it’s great to finally have the time to read and write about it again. College is hectic and keeps me so busy. I’m trying something different this time and I hope you guys like it. I’ve been meaning to read this book ever since it was released and I’ve finally managed to pick it up.
So I’m 13 chapters in and I’m really liking it so far. When it was published, people kept comparing it with the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, so naturally, I wanted to read that first. So far I think Julian might have some selfish reasons but, he is kinder and nicer than he leads others to believe. I find Scarlett quite naive and Donatella self-serving, but oh well! Scarlett has finally figured out that this year’s challenge is going to be to find Tella and that she won’t be able to make it home in time for her wedding and Julian reassures her that Tella would be kept in a good condition because they were Grandmaster Legend’s “special” guests. Scarlett and Julian start on their journey to find Scarlet’s sister. Scarlett is mesmerised by the pretty and magical sites. And…I might be falling in love with Julian. Just a little bit. A teeny tiny bit really. Scarlett’s knowledge about her sister and her likes and dislikes and Julian’s practical tact and grip have helped them so far. I’m excited to read further!
Uh, I managed to last just 2 days with this book. And now I am absolutely in love with Julian. From the beginning, I thought Scarlett was naive and a little dumb, but man, oh man, was I wrong! She’s so smart, the way she found the clues and the way her brain worked, it was incredible. Also, was there something wrong with Scarlett’s fiance? I just felt that there was something off about that guy, like something just didn’t add up or something. The whole plot with Julian was so mysterious because I knew he wasn’t telling the entire truth, but when he died? I might have shed a tear. And then Tella jumps from the balcony. I was pretty much done and devastated at this point. But I still wanted to know what was going to happen next. And let me tell you, I really was not expecting the whole coming back to life thing, and the whole story with Tella and Legend.
I am completely in love with this book, the writing, the storyline, the plot, everything. And I really cannot wait for the sequel to know what happens next with Tella. One thing I do know for sure is that I want Scarlett and Julian to still be a serious thing in the next book. They need their happily ever after, dammit!
I would seriously recommend this book to anybody who likes even a little bit of fantasy, magic and mystery in their books.
Also, would you guys suggest what I should read next?
