The first book in an epic, heart-pounding fantasy duology about two royal heirs betrothed to be married, but whose loyalties are torn, and a ruthless enemy who threatens their world, perfect for fans of Sabaa Tahir, Hafsah Faizal, and Renée Ahdieh.
Adraa is the royal heir of Belwar, a talented witch on the cusp of taking her royal ceremony test, and a girl who just wants to prove her worth to her people. Jatin is the royal heir to Naupure, a competitive wizard who’s mastered all nine colors of magic, and a boy anxious to return home for the first time since he was a child.
Together, their arranged marriage will unite two of Wickery’s most powerful kingdoms. But after years of rivalry from afar, Adraa and Jatin only agree on one thing: their reunion will be anything but sweet.
Only, destiny has other plans and with the criminal underbelly of Belwar suddenly making a move for control, their paths cross…and neither realizes who the other is, adopting separate secret identities instead.
Between dodging deathly spells and keeping their true selves hidden, the pair must learn to put their trust in the other if either is to uncover the real threat. Now Wickery’s fate is in the hands of rivals..? Fiancées..? Partners..? Whatever they are, it’s complicated and bound for greatness or destruction.
Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond tour! I am so excited to talk about this book. First of all, you can find more info about the tour here. There are a lot of awesome bloggers writing so many creative posts so be sure to check it out.
This was a fun read, and it´s the right book for you if you are looking for rivals to lovers, mistaken identities, and all the shenanigans that come with it.
It was one of my first reads of 2021 and it really helped me out of a reading slump that I had for the last weeks of 2020. I laughed out loud more than once and the characters are really lovable.
If you are not yet convinced check out my mood board to get an idea of what to expect.
