I've always seen this series listed in my recommendations, but never picked it up. I think it's because I seem to usually judge a book by its cover.......well, lesson learned!
I first heard about this book on Twitter when I noticed that a few book bloggers that I followed were raving about this book and its sequel, The Wicked King. I looked it up on my Libby app, and turns out that my library had a copy available! Lucky me!
