Goodreads Review

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! It's kind of hard to explain how much I loved this book without just telling you about my experience reading it. I had quite a bit of homework last night, but what did I do? I started reading this book AND finished it. I stayed up pretty late (about 3 hours past when I usually would...) but I have zero regrets. I finished it pretty late last night and I already want to reread it all (ok, confession, I have already started rereading it).

Willa is my spirit animal. Never have I identified with a main character more than I have identified with her. She's so clumsy (likewise) and constantly embarrasses herself (also me). She is headstrong and rebellious, despite being a dweller--the slaves of the sols. She stands up for herself and it's pretty much just a stroke of good luck that she didn't get sacrificed if we're being completely honest. But I loved Willa. She was so funny and amazing. Willa Knight is now one of my absolute favorite book characters of all time.

Oh lordy lords, the guys...*le sigh* So, this in a reverse harem story and that means that all five of the delicious sols Willa befriends are our potential love interests. And holy crappity they're freaking amazing. Each sol has a certain gift, and our five sols are pretty powerful. We have Rome, who's gift is Strength; then we have Yael, who's gift is Persuasion; then we have Coen, who's gift is pain (he likes to give out pleasurey-pain--a man after my own heart); then we have Siret, who's gift is Trickery; and finally Aros, who's gift is Seduction. Oh la la, all of them were so freaking awesome.

In the beginning, they were kind of arrogant and annoying (because they are sols destined to become gods) but as they slowly warmed up to our main character I found myself falling in love with them too. They're sweet to Willa (deep down) but cocky, arrogant, and kind of mean to everyone else. I love that aspect of it.

While I did have a few ideas of how the story was going to go, it definitely did not end up how I expected it ending. There were things that I did not see coming (but I should have...because it's Jane Washington and Jaymin Eve and they like making us angsty apparently). I think that the plot was very well developed for such a short amount of time. I loved the world building and I find myself wishing that I could be visiting and seeing that amazing world that these characters live in.

I was especially grateful that there was a glossary at the beginning to help with some of the terms that the characters use. While they weren't that difficult to figure out on their own (as it was just different words for words we have), it was nice to be able to check the glossary to see if I had a word correctly.

This book was one of my favorites of the year (probably in a three way tie for first place so far), and I have no doubt that this series will become one of my top series ever. I'm excited to see how the next book goes and I'm even more excited that the second book is releasing in April! April! So close, yet so far! The cover has already been revealed, and it's gorgeous.

So, long story short, I'm kind of obsessed with all five of the guys, Willa is my new-found spirit animal, and I'm drawn into yet another series that will consume my mind, body, and soul. It's flipping fantastic.
