Full disclosure I hadn't read any of the other series by this author before starting this one. I regret it. Characters and types of beasts are brought in and you are super confused. But if you had read the other books you would know enough to keep up.
Beyond that it's an adorable coming of age story where romance is the last thing you see. I kind of wish it has more in the way of mates but maybe in the next books.
Perfect for lovers of fantasy, witches , and all manner of creatures.
