Actual rating 45 StarsI received this ARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewThis book was first published in 2012 as an indie book and it is being republished now by HarperTeen because an editor fell in love with it after reading the book And I can see the reason whyThis book has a slow start that much I can say So I didn't notice for a while that I came to love the story and much of its characters I only did after I got to the middle partThe story is so mesmerizing and at times heartbreaking It is than a simple coming of age story It is about knowing yourself it is about trust it is about deception it is about revenge it is about politicking and most of all it is about learning that sense of justice is different for everyone Moreover it is about finding your path after a previously rendered road was taken away from youThe protagonist Alyrra is written so magnificently Although at first she was described as somewhat a slow shadow of a self but other than that she is caring intelligent and had a high sense of justness She had her doubts in her person but after a while she came to believe in herself which magnanimously helped in the climax of the storyMoreover I loved the tandem between Alyrra and Kestrin What they had is not an instant love between two people who are meant to be wed They took their time to know each other and in turn trust each other At the end of the book Alyrra has not yet come to love Kestrin but is already furnishing the path to get there And this is the kind of relationship that I love to read about mutual respect and trust not just about appearancesThis book is a retelling of the classic Goose Girl Although I haven't read that particular book yet I took the risk to read this before the classic And I am glad that I did that because this book left me enthralled and I'm sure that it will be one of my best reads this year HopefullyEdit 16012020Even Ms Intisar Khanani liked my review I am so honored and thrilled There's no doubt that I'm going to buy the book after its release
