With this new book, we start exploring deeper into some alternate POVs. Particularly Prince Jehn’s, which was fascinating. I liked seeing his perspective on Kael, how close of a bond the two of them share. The whole book did a good job of humanizing a character who was difficult to like previously, and I might even be starting to really root for him. His dynamic with the Queen of Nyr is super intriguing.
And yes . . . we got a lot more Auberon this time, which made me happy! He’s trying to rescue his sister, trying to win over Briand, trying to not be selfish and villainous and . . . I just love him in all his struggles. I liked the admissions that happened in this book, and my shipping loyalties might be altering course rather dramatically these days!
But I do still love Kael. And I’ve been following him and Briand for so long now, it’s hard not to want to see them get the resolution they both long for. I don’t know! The angst! (And I’m living for it!)
This book felt seriously short . . . but I think that’s just because I was so caught up in the characters and adventures, it flew by! And at least I know I can dive right into book 7.
