Happy Friday, everyone! I haven’t posted in forever, but I loved The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye so much, I just had to participate in the blog tour for her new book Circle of Shadows, which came out this Tuesday! Have you guys started reading it yet? I want to hear all your thoughts in the comments! Check out my five-star review below and stay tuned for a special announcement next week!
About the Book
Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them—and the entire kingdom—apart.
This book is perfect for fans of The Grisha Trilogy and Strange the Dreamer because not only is it action-packed, with a high-stakes, and phenomenal world building, but it Skye’s writing is also just stunning. It’s gorgeous, and lovely, and wonderfully descriptive. Her writing is like poetry, and I absolutely devoured it.
Skye has created an unforgettable cast of characters that will stay with readers long after the finish reading the final pages. Sora, in particular, was a delight. Her spirit was inspiring and so much fun to read about. I loved her connection with Daemon, and the two of them on the page together was absolute magic.
The magic system is beautifully developed, and the way Skye incorporates it in the story is almost lyrical. The world building was also very well executed. Skye really brought it all to life with her captivating descriptions.
The story itself was very well-plotted, and moved at a quick pace. There weren’t any lulls in the story, and I found myself not wanting to put it down.
I’m so excited to see what happens next in this captivating new series!
