I really recommend this book, not just because it's full of nostalgia, but because the plot is full of so many twists and mysteries that it's compelling from the first page to the last!

I was going to wait until near the book's publishing date to post this, but it looks like a lot of people have already posted their reviews already. So, in honour of it being my blog's 6th blogsversary today, I wanted to share this review of the best book I have read so far this year.
I wasn't sure about this book even before I started to read it, but I was open to reading something new. I liked the fact it contained magic, but I am one of those very rare people who doesn't actually like Les Misérables (which this book is compared to), and I've never had much of an interest in revolutionary France...

I really recommend picking this book up. It's a demonstration of the dark side of magic but also an exploration into humans and power. It's about addiction and the complicated state of human relationships. But it's also got a great plot, it's well written, full of mystery and it's really easy to get absorbed into. A fantastic read from start to finish.
For those of you looking to read something different, this is a book I highly recommend. There's no main romance that distracts from the plot, and it's a type of Science Fiction that is more commonly seen in adult novels rather than YA, targeted to fit this new audience which couldn't have been an easy task to do.
Although I received a copy of the ARC from NetGallery, it wasn't until I got a copy in March's Fairyloot box that I actually got around to reading this book. Which was more due to a lack of time than anything else, because this was a book that I've been eager to read for a long time now. I really like stories about girls joining a man's world and proving their worth, so this book caught my attention straight away. And I was really impressed with it!
