The thrilling first book in a YA fantasy trilogy for fans of
Red Queen. In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.
Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister??s debutante spell??an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic??Anna finds herself exiled to her family??s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.
 
Her life might well be over.
 
In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she??s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can??t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.
 
As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna??s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romani, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she??s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.
??A fast-paced historical fantasy full of magic, romance, and adventure!???JESSICA DAY GEORGE, New York Times bestselling aut

I gave this book 3.5 stars.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the historical fiction elements mixed with magic. I loved how she tackled also race and female roles in society and also prejudice. I various magic systems were the coolest part of this novel. I also enjoyed the various setting that we went to in this novel. I thought the story towards the middle did slow down and did get lost in some of the details. But i was really engaged by the lead. I am excited to see what book two brings. ( )

I tried. I think the book started well -- I was pleasantly surprised at the Victorian setting, and the new take on magic/society -- it sounded good. But so_much_melodrama. So_much_poor me. I bogged down in the 250s and just couldn't read it any more. Mostly because I don't really care what happens next. ( )

I honestly don't understand why so many people hate this.

The Writing and Worldbuilding

I really liked the writing! It was very well done and worked both as a historical novel and a YA fantasy. I never really felt bored, even when little was happening. There were a few times when I was sort of confused as to what was happening, especially near the very end, but as a whole, I loved it.

I liked the themes, but they didn't really have the emotional impact they were obviously intended to. Same goes for some of the character moments. This was probably the biggest strike against this book: it just didn't give me any feels.

The world was pretty cool! Reminded me of The Infernal Devices quite a lot, but the alternate dimension aspects were definitely my favorite part. Low-key gave me Insidious vibes sometimes, if I'm being honest.

The Characters

Anna: A lot of people really hated the main character, but while I recognize that she's a spoiled brat, I actually liked her a lot. She felt like a real person and her motivations and shortcomings were believable and humanizing. She grows a lot as a person by the end.

Gábor: He was a great character and I liked how he didn't always agree with Anna. I wish I'd had more scenes with them just bonding; as it was, their romance kinda came from nothing.

Mátyás I really liked him! He was funny and a really great guy. (And for all the people flipping out about "cousin kissing", they're not closely related. They aren't direct cousins. And for the time, it wasn't even taboo in the slightest even if they were.)

Noémi: I honestly forgot about her a lot of the time. She held zero to no emotional impact for me, and did little for the plot. I did like her enough though.

Everyone else: This book had a big problem with tossing around names that had been mentioned like once and not reminding me who it was talking about. Sometimes I'd be entirely lost in a scene because I had no idea who anyone was. The characters I did recall, though, were all pretty okay. I didn't feel passionately about any of them, but I did like them well enough.

Conclusion

The epilogue intrigued me, so I might read the sequel, but as a whole, while I really liked the writing and the world, and even the characters to a degree, I'm not too interested in continuing the series, at least not any time soon. If this had been written any worse, it would probably have been a solid meh ( )
