About this deal

Seriously, for someone who's supposed to have this important task, this life that was controlled since birth and centered around a central role she was supposed to take, this lady knew very little of what was happening around her. No.” I shook my head. “He was right. I have spent my entire life preparing for my betrothal to the crowned prince, and I am a fool to allow the queen to think I am loyal to anything but that.” PDF / EPUB File Name: A_Kingdom_of_Stars_and_Shadows_Stars_and_Shadows_1_-_Holly_Renee.pdf, A_Kingdom_of_Stars_and_Shadows_Stars_and_Shadows_1_-_Holly_Renee.epub

I mean, it's eerily close to From Blood and Ash (book 1) if you substitute the word "Maiden" with "Starblessed." The plots are basically the same, down to the exact same cliffhanger ending. Betrothed to the crowned prince of Citlali, Gavril Achlys, the Starblessed, Adara, is taken to Achlys Palace to fulfill her destiny. What was happening? WHY was it happening? WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE IT WAS HAPPENING? WHAT IS THIS BOOK EVEN ABOUT??? A Kingdom of Stars and Shadows follows Adara, a Starblessed human fated to marry the fae prince. It starts off the night before she’s sent to the fae realm.The plot is slow to develop, and focuses a lot more on relationships rather than plot movement. But there is action and suspense so I never got bored. I’m sorry my love for this book took me by COMPLETE surprise! Like I loved this fantasy romance… good characters, interesting plot that was super easy to get hooked into, HELLA spice and tension, and Evren🥵

The fantasy aspect in this book fell short - I don't even know what kind of world this is/how to understand it. The romance was so prevalent that we didn't get a whole lot on the fantasy side. We've got fae and vampyres and that is about all I remember. I am told my union to the crowned prince will determine the fate of the kingdom, but it isn't my betrothed who haunts my dreams. It's the half-breed prince who stands at his side. This is just bad. A hot mess all around. Poor characterization, weak world building, nonsensical plot, and underdeveloped writing. I wish I remembered to highlight the exchanges these two had before they started longing for each other in the way they were, because the notion would be scandalously embarrassing.Everything in my original review still stands. This book is highly entertaining, short, smutty, and predictable (but in the best way!). Evren ily.
