One of the unfortunate truths in life is that if someone dumps a war on your doorstep in the small hours of the morning, well, you’re kind of stuck with it. Especially if that war comes in the form of a mostly naked man and he just happens to be one of the most powerful beings in the city.
And your ex.
Another unfortunate truth: No matter how poorly things ended, you’re going to wind up scraping him up off the cement and dragging him in off your doorstep. And, of course, that’s when the real trouble begins.
This book is the start of the series The court of Ash and Snow. The first page starts with action, its like hey you see your ex and then all of a sudden its KABOOM in your apartment. Calvin tries to save the city and at the same time solve the mystery of the whereabouts of the Lord of the city. There’s betrayal an annoying as fuck ex and cute flirting with a smexy classy lawyer.
The Calvin Chung the main character is a cutie, i loved how he matured from his past relationship with Salim( the blasted ex). I loved that there was a transgender character (Chuck), i haven’t read a book with one before and she was cool.
The cliffhanger is blue-unicorn balls inducing however, i am expecting great things in the next book and maybe my OTP( one true pairing of Calvin and Tony the smexy lawyer) would finally happen. I loved the writing it was easy to understand, its like you can ”see” each scene. Its fast paced action, the romance is one that is budding and i think the author intends to build it up instead of just boom throwing it in your face.
I loved the magic and the mystery that the book provided, i would continue this series to see how it plays out. I still have a lot of questions and i think the next book would answer them.
So the question is yo Booked unicorn why are you
pimping telling me to read this book? Well Hooman this book was simply a beautiful adventure that i could not pass up and you shouldn’t too.
And that’s all folks,
