Usually when I read series, I try to break them up with other books so that I don’t get burned out. But sometimes a series is less of a series and more of a really long epic book broken up into eight separate novellas. And sometimes I get sick and need to spend the day in bed and this long series of novellas is exactly what I need to feel better. So, instead of seven more separate reviews, here’s my full spoiler-free overview.
This was fun. A lot of fun. This is advertised as a reverse harem romance, so there are some fun sexy bits, but that often took a back seat to the intricate world building and deeper inter-character relationships. Gesa and every member of her pride are fully developed characters with their own personalities and arcs.
Ultimately, none of the characters are who you expect, and this includes fun secondary characters as well. The twists and revelations where enjoyable, and there’s even some well-crafted near-heartbreak along the way.
I’ve already jumped into another series by the author, and I’m looking forward to the promised spin-off to this one.
Overall rating: 5 (out of 5) stars.
