An e-arc copy of this book was provided from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Hello Book Friends! I hope you all are having another magical start to the week! I requested this book on NetGalley a few months ago because the synopsis seemed really FUN and I was looking for something different so I requested and was approved for this e-arc. I hadn’t read one of those in a while, so I thought this book would be a good chance. Plus, It’s a historical fiction, so there’s that too! You can read all about it on Goodreads HERE!
Personally, I thought this story was SUPER CUTE! I loved the main character “Cassandra”. I related a lot with her personality, and I loved her sarcasm throughout the book. The side characters were also super fun! I loved her two new friends! Also, there’s a love interest involved (and surprisingly no triangle involved) which was adorable!
This book has a slight Harry Potter/Tempest and Slaughter feel, but don’t go into it expecting the expansiveness of those books. It has magic – which I would have liked to have seen more of, but I thought it was still really good and well done. I believe this is a first in a series, so I am looking forward to reading more of these books in the future.
The story is very well written, and I had a hard time putting it down. It was fast paced which I enjoyed and I loved all the historical fiction aspects to it as well. The author really set the tone for the book, and I could imagine being at school with “Cassandra.” I enjoyed the antagonist side of these books, they were really well done.
Overall, this was an EXTREMELY enjoyable light read with magic and historical fiction incorporated together! It was fast paced, well -written and had an adorable plot. The characters had relatable personalities, and there was some sass and sarcasm involved which is always a good thing. Since the book was published in August, I look forward to getting a physical copy soon! I’d love to have it on my shelves.
Anyway, these are my non-spoilery opinions and thoughts about this book! Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below! Also, thanks for reading!
