This book was courtesy of NetGalley, where the book had been taken down but I still received it as a wish after I put in a request for it!
Exceptionally well-written, this book kept me up till 1 am because I just couldn’t go to sleep without finishing it! The story is captivating and each of the four main characters have their own unique story that stops you from putting the book down.
With the loss of magic, the population was left helpless. Their only hope was to fight the soldiers and government taxes long enough to revolt against the evil regime. Everyone who had once had magic was killed and their children were left defenseless. They are being trained now to fight this regime but without their magic they are nothing.
Zélie’s mother was killed because of her magic. When Zélie finds out that there are relics that can bring magic back to the land, she becomes intrigued and desperate to get her power back. One day, while trading in the markets, she meets a princess who is trying to run away from her palace and has in her possession the magic relic. Zélie knows that she can bring magic back to the kingdom, but first she must cross treacherous obstacles to perform a final rite that will restore everyone’s powers.
Will she be able to do it?
