Rating: 4 out of 5.

“You cannot go without leaving something behind.”


That’s it. I hate Roshani.

If the first book ended like this, I fear for my life in the 2nd book. WHY DO THAT??? WHY GIVE ME FALSE HOPE ONLY TO CRUSH IT??? WHYYYY??? it’s called being an author

This is one of those times where I don’t know what to say.

Other than that cruel ending, this book was AMAZING. These guys . . . ohmygoddd I’d die for them. I didn’t understand before but now I see it all.


There’s Severinβ€”the leader of the group (you know, there should be a name for itπŸ€”), owner of Hotel L’Eden, and former heir of House Vanth.

He’s half-French, half-Algerian and honestly I love him, but after the cruel words he said to a certain person , SOMEONE NEEDS TO STRANGLE HIM. He has his reasons BUT STILL-

But then there’s sweet Tristan WHO DESERVES THE WORLD. Literally must be protected AT ALL COSTS. (view spoiler)[quite ironic considering he was murdered in the endπŸ’€πŸ˜­ (hide spoiler)] And Goliath too. I love Goliath. Goliath is everything. Anyone who says they don’t like Goliath is an enemy of mine.πŸ‘Ώ

And LAILA. LAILA IS AMAZING. A fierce & sweet Indian that loves to dance, bake, and care so much for her friends.πŸ₯Ί Like what’s NOT to love about her??? I can’t wait to see her wreak havoc in the next book MUAHAHhahahhaa😏 Don’t mess with Laila hehe.

Zofia is such a mood and I adore her i’m using ‘love’ too much Literally half the time my friends will be saying jokes/references from some meme/vine/youtube video and I’m like “wut???” xD

She’s also Jewish-Polish and just a mad genius. I’d finally be understand where she’s going with a plan and meanwhile she’s like a 100 steps ahead. AND HER CONVOS WITH ENRIQUE BAHAHAA I LOVED THEM🀣

Enrique whined, β€œSΓ©verin doesn’t think I’m pretty.”

β€œSΓ©verin, tell him he’s pretty,” said Laila.

SΓ©verin crossed his arms. β€œZofia, tell him he’s pretty.”

Zofia didn’t look up from her tea. β€œI am personally undecided, but if we’re assessing based on objectivity, then according to the principles of the golden ratio, also known as phi, which is approximately 1.618, your facial beauty is mathematically pleasing.”

β€œI’m swooning,” grumbled Enrique.

AHHHhπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ And that brings me to MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITEβ€”ENRIQUE. I love them all but Enrique is just too good.πŸ’• Being the other genius in the group, the Spanish-Filipino historian, there were many moments between him and Zofia. And . . . Hypnos😏

Saying it right now-if Roshani dares to even think about killing Enrique in the sequel Iβ€”

*murderous look*

yes, I’m being overdramatic BUT IM SERIOUS. DONT. KILL. HIM.

Now as much as I love the characters, I have to say that half the time I had no idea what was going on/talking aboutβ€”mainly in the beginning but that’s probably me just being an idiot

It did take awhile getting used to the world and all the information BUT the use of math & history (etc) was chef’s kiss. I never thought I’d be seeing MATH of all things in a fantasy book xD. Amazing. My math teachers would be jumping up and down seeing this hahahaπŸ˜‚

I’m still shook over that ending. I’m very very worried. I hope Roshani doesn’t end up killing me in the sequel who am i kidding? it’s totally gonna happen.

Guess I’ll start digging up my grave.πŸ’€
