I have always imagined that paradise would be a kind of library.
Not all books are written equal. Some are meant to be greater than others. The hardest part is figuring out which one is which.
This is honestly the best box I’ve spent my money on.
I started collecting special editions of books last year and now I can’t seem to stop. So when I saw that Illumicrate was releasing a special edition box of The Cruel Prince, I was curious. I admit that at the time, I heard of The Folk of the Air series but I haven’t read it yet. Seeing the announcement made me bump it to the top of my reading list. Even before reading it, I could tell that I would love it and I was absolutely right. It is definitely my most favorite series now. So, really, it was all thanks to this box.
I don’t even know how to begin this review. I feel like whatever I say, I wouldn’t be able to give justice to how perfect this book (and the whole series) is.
I was really nervous about this. Considering how good the first two books were, my expectations for The Queen of Nothing were sky-high. And I’ve read enough to know that it’s easier to get let down. Waiting for this book was a mixture of dread and excitement.
To be honest, I haven’t heard about this series before I bought it. I was skeptical at first but the blurb and the cover won me over. It seemed like something I would like and I was completely right.
You might be thinking: a book about aliens taking over our planet and a possible hint of romance, what’s new? Let me tell you. The charm of this book lies not with the plot but with the relationship between our two main characters, August and Raven. But don’t get me wrong. I liked the plot. It ebbed and flowed at the right moments. It laid the foundation for the development of the bond between August and Raven.
People don’t choose books. Books choose people.
What might seem great for you might not be the same for others. And what might seem terrible for some, might just be the right one for you.
★★★★★ – One word. PERFECT.
★★★★☆ – Lacking just a tiny bit of something.
★★★☆☆ – Good but not great.
★★☆☆☆ – Disappointing.
★☆☆☆☆ – Terrible.
Everything on this blog is my opinion.
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
