In the Kingdom of Winter, he’s a swaggering potioneer who hunts for wisdom—a brew that will shake the world.
It’s the only secret he craves.
Except for the one boy he can’t have.
I finally finished this series and as a whole it has been a disappointing experience. I loved the first book, but none of the other tree were that great.
In regard to this one, I enjoyed it enough, but I had quite a lot of issues with it. Lyrik as a character, most of the time, but I just did not like the way Nicu was written. The way he was portrayed did not marry well with what he was doing, especially regarding his storyline with Lyrik. This was a gay romance that could have been so good, but instead it just fell a little flat.
The writing was a bit iffy as well. I kind of felt like I was reading a first draft and with a bit of editing or changing the wording this would have been a much better read. The sentences did not really flow and the phrasing sometimes felt off.
It was nice to see all the characters from the previous books, but it did feel a little forced.
I enjoyed it enough to keep this series on my shelves for now, but I am a bit disappointed.
