My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll know it when you see it. You’ll understand why the gods have made you suffer. Because that moment’s reward will make your knees weak and everything you’ve suffered in life will pale in comparison.
I will keep this review short. This book surpassed my expectations and my expectations were really high. After reading Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles, I knew that this book will be powerful. However, it wasn’t like I imagined. It was far beyond that. Hours after finishing the book, I am still haunted by the beautiful characters Melina Marchetta has created. That ending had so much impact on me. It was the perfect ending to the perfect story. And that epilogue touched my heart so deep. After reading so many books, I always fear that books may not affect me anymore but this book made me laugh and cry and hope. This book made me thank my past self for reading this series. This book may be fantasy but it made me realize so much. So thank you my past self and thank you Melina Marchetta.
