My brief thoughts so you know a bit about the book if you missed my full review:
This book is one of my top-five favorite books of all time, so of course I had to buy an extra copy to share the love! 💚
What do you get when you pair up a loyal, practical farm girl and a lone-wolf, elegant, snarky, insanely powerful enchanter with a chip on his shoulder, and set them loose to fight monsters and injustice in a fantasy kingdom?
This snarky, clever, sheer fun fantasy novel, is what! It perfectly balances comedy, epic swashbuckling, and humorous or heartfelt character moment that give me all the feels.
Perfect for fans of Diana Wynne Jones, Terry Pratchett (it is #MarchMagics this month, after all!), and Terry Brooks’ Magic Kingdom for Sale.
Dana Illwind and Sorcerer Lord Jayden are one of my favorite character duos ever and I just love them to bits!
Good luck if you enter in either place and thanks for reading! I highly recommend this book! 💚
