I’ve always wondered what life with wings would be like. To live in the clouds, free as a bird. This book encaptured my dreams so vividly, I absolutely felt like I lived there.
I would like to thank the Author for gifting me a review copy, and everything expressed in the review section below is completely my own opinion.
I absolutely adore this story.
Travel with me to the floating city in the sky, a magical world where humanity survived destruction because the gods gave them bird like wings. A magical world torn from the Earth with magic and kept a loft for the protection of its people. But mysteries, magic and mystical creatures lurk below, swaddled in secrets and histories long forgotten.
Fall in love with sulking bastards, over enthusiastic princesses hungry for adventure and a best friend with a crazy secret. Davis creates colorful characters that will leave you hungering for more story, more adventure and more romance. This book has everything – star crossed lovers, epic dragon battles and mystery kings with hidden agendas. Go on this epic journey with these unforgettable characters.
In a world where magic is considered a curse from the gods, this elemental magic system gives a new depth to a complex storyline. Some covet it, others fear it. My favorite part about it? It unfolds and reveals itself as the story progresses, giving you little pieces to help you puzzle it all out.
The writing captures from page one. I blazed through this book and will definitely be rereading this a few times. Colorful and descriptive language use will help submerge yourself in this story wholeheartedly. This unique narrative will find its place among the must reads for 2020 quickly.
Love is when you find a piece of yourself in someone else, a piece you never knew was missing, but without which you’d be broken. You feel whole, and complete , and accepted for exactly who you are. You can be your true self, because around this person, for the first time you have no desire to pretend to be anyone else.The Raven and the Dove, Kaitlyn Davis
