5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Enchanting Retelling of a Fairytale with East Asian Rep 🥰
By For The Love of Fictional Worlds on 11 July 2021
(Voluntarily reviewed an eARC of the book on For The Love of Fictional Worlds)

This newest introduction to a Duology is brilliant in its world building, it’s fun, and filled with legends, magic, curses and dragons with a hint of a wholesome romance that will have you feeling like you are wrapped up in a hug 🤗

I haven’t actually read or have any idea about the Six Swans Fairytale - so I went in blind; regarding what exactly the plot of the book may have been.

But I swear, I fell in love with the writing style of the author first - she has this beautiful engaging writing that conveys the deepest of emotions in the most simplistic way possible - and to do that in a fantasy, is a testament to the talent of the author.

A spoiled princess, her adoring brothers, an indifferent stepmother and an indulgent father form the basic arc of the story until magic and a dragon rears it’s heads.

I really want to go into detail - about Shiori, a princess with the most wonderful character growth, her relationship with her brothers, her learning of her past, her present and her strength to face her future - and the way she handled everything thrown at her, the betrayal, the hopelessness and the loneliness with such grace.

I could ask also talk about how I wished we had more of the sibling love shown in the book, Shiori and her brothers deserved more and how she found solace in the arms of the man she didn’t think was good enough for, but now felt she didn’t deserve.

I could talk about a whole lot of things - but I would just tell you that this book, is a book you need to read especially if you are in the mood for amazingly fresh and rich fantasy with on point East Asian Rep and love finding new retellings to fall for 😍
