This book is criminally underserved by its jacket copy, which makes it look like it's going to be a fairly shallow fantasy with a forbidden love that more eye-roll inducing than anything else.

EXCEPT THEN IT TOTALLY ISN'T.

Blake's use of world-building extends really thoughtfully into religion, prophecy, and politics. She places her fish-hook hints really deftly and then every reveal feels earned. I won, like, ten bets with myself reading this book, and it was AWESOME. The first part is a littttttle draggy, but it turns around really fast, and by the time part two starts, it's flying.

I finished it a couple days ago and I'm STILL super pumped about how the prophecy went down. I can't wait for books 2 and 3!
