The long anticipated sequel to The Witch King arrived through the library on release day! After adoring the first book, I knew this one would be just as good.
The story picks up two short weeks following the end of The Witch King. Still reeling from the betrayals in book one, Wyatt, Emyr, Briar, and friends are all trying to piece the world together while simultaneously hunting down those responsible for murdering Emyr in book one.
What follows is a beautiful story of trauma, love, and acceptance.
I really can't put into words just how much this novel meant to me. H.E. Edgmon wrote an amazingly diverse cast. From non-binary Jin, to the triad, to Emyr - fashion icon and king, to our main character, Wyatt, as he learns to accept himself for who he is. Not only is this an amazing novel with fun, fantastical elements, but the bigger story of acceptance of who one is was a beautiful message.
There was a lot of political intrigue as we saw a lot more interaction with the other fae courts, as well as witches and changelings.
As I said last time, this novel has beautiful representation of best friend relationships, the likes of which I have never seen written in another story.
All in all, this was the perfect read to happen during pride month!
