I loved the storytelling. A unique magic system, palace intrigue, new romance .. it’s great. I was however distracted quite a lot by the narrator who was very breathy and would often make gasping noises as she was taking a breath in, just before speaking a new sentence. It was so distracting that I nearly returned the book at the beginning... however the book was gripping enough that I continued listening and have just purchased the second book, and just learned to put up with it. But it’s the first time I’ve ever heard a narrator do this!

Great second book in series

Although I think this book was slower in some places than the first book was, it was still wonderful to be back in the world of Pavan and get to know all the characters a bit more. I especially loved some of the new friendships and romances that happened in this book, and I didn’t expect that ending at all! And now I’m really looking forward to the third book to see what happens next!!

Full of suspense

I couldn’t stop listening to this! I’m not sure how to describe it.. fantasy with beautifully written scenery so vivid you could feel yourself there! And a very unique story centered around the sea/lakes and water. I loved the descriptions of society and the different way of life they had. There are lots of dark twists and turns as well and wonderful characters and a lovely romance. Looking forward to the next book 💛

A great second book. Some second books in the series can become slow paced but not this one! So much interesting stuff happened and I loved learning about all the characters more :)

I am so glad that this book was recommended to me. Beautiful and imaginative and the romance was wonderful - the story really pulls you in! I love the world of the trolls/fae - the story and characters are so well developed and easy and fun to listen to. 💛😊

This was recommended to me when I asked people about a book that was similar to A court of thorns and roses. And yes it is kind of similar but also completely amazing in its own right. I can’t believe it took me this long to discover this book. I adore Tristan! Now onto the next book!!

I wa hooked from the first few lines! I heard about this author through her other books and am so glad I did. A cross between Jane Austen and fantasy worlds.. I wish the second book in the series was available on audible too, although this book can also be listened to be as a stand-alone.

Loved it

“The thigs we like are different. The things we love, are the same”.

This was beautifully written, and everything I was hoping for! I think the fact it was marketed as an “Odyssey” retelling might have thrown people off, as it’s not really anything like that - I would say it’s more similar in genre/plot to the Glittering Court series / the selection series. So if you liked either of those I would think you would love this too. We follow Selah as she journeys through various countries, meeting eligible suitors, but there are a few twists and turns which I did not see coming. There is a lot of romance, which is beautifully done. The descriptions are vivid and the language so beautiful that it is poetic at times. And the ending was a big twist! I am really looking forward to the second book but am also hoping a few of the characters from this book make an appearance, as I fell completely in love with them!
One thing that is difficult to follow is where all the various countries are, so a pdf map would be great for the next book. Overall, highly recommend!
