My thoughts:

I heard a lot of really mixed reviews about this book so I was really nervous when I started reading it. I’m happy to say I ended up really enjoying it!

I loved the concept of the game, a display of magical talent by both participants. And I loved that it was to the death. It was just so much more dramatic. Not gonna lie, I spent the whole book waiting for the loophole that would allow both to live. I was happy that she stuck to her storyline and one of them did die, even if I really did want both to live.

I really enjoyed the characters as well. I thought Vika and Nikolai were fantastic main characters and all the minor characters around them helped tie the story together so well.

I’m really looking forward to reading book two!
