So, I know I disappeared there for a while, and I apologize, I have just had a lot going on lately. I finished my teaching classes, and found a job as a middle school teacher, which I am very excited about! I was stressing over that because I didn’t have a definite yes, until last week. After that, I was stressing about turning in my less than two weeks notice to my job, which today is my last day there! I still have to do a lot, so I may start cutting back the number of posts I do a week, until I can work out a new system.
Today I bring you a review of one of the best books I have read this month! I have been waiting for this book since I finished the first one in the series, Spin The Dawn, and this book was so worth the wait! The final book in this duology is Unravel The Dusk by Elizabeth Lim, and lord is it a doozy.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“Maia Tamarin’s journey to sew the dresses of the sun, the moon and the stars has taken a grievous toll. She returns to a kingdom on the brink of war. The boy she loves is gone, and she is forced to don the dress of the sun and assume the place of the emperor’s bride-to-be to keep the peace.
But the war raging around Maia is nothing compared to the battle within. Ever since she was touched by the demon Bandur, she has been changing . . . glancing in the mirror to see her own eyes glowing red, losing control of her magic, her body, her mind. It’s only a matter of time before Maia loses herself completely, but she will stop at nothing to find Edan, protect her family, and bring lasting peace to her country.
YA fantasy readers will love the sizzling forbidden romance, mystery, and intrigue of Unravel the Dusk.”
All I can say is Elizabeth knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seat and engrossed into the story. I loved watching Maia’s journey continue after the first one, although there were tears on my side, this book was so worth the wait. We see characters from the first book, and are introduced to new characters, that quite frankly would scare me if I met them in real life. This book is packed with Action, Romance, Mystery, and the Supernatural. I loved learning more about Edan in this book, and to me this is one of my favorite book couples. There were places when I didn’t know what was going to happen to my beloved characters, and I didn’t want to put this book down. If you loved the first book, then you need to read the conclusion as soon as possible. If you haven’t read this duology yet, then you need to as soon as possible, because you won’t be disappointed!
