What can I say that hasn't been said in the other 5 star reviews? Not much, I promise you, so I'll share how I felt reading this book. Awe mostly. Ms. Bardugo weaves a somewhat enchanted tale of crazy, original, wonder filled, brutal and beautiful world, in which there's a magical evil force threatening to destroy all the good I pursuit of power. Where lovers are battling to save that world and their love and it is all wrapped up in fascinating, extreme,y well crafted words. Can't wait for the third installment of this saga.
