At the tender age of seven, Jess Riley's parents were ripped out of her life by the Tear, a ripple of white light in the sky which randomly transports people from Earth to alternate realities and distant planets once a year. On the night the Tear first appeared, the Watchers, a mysterious group of men possessing supernatural powers, made their presence known to the leaders of the world, earning their complete trust to deal with the turmoil the Tear caused.

First things first... this book is rated "simmering" but to me it's more on the sweet side. If I had a teenager, if let him/her read the book. Nothing too... sexual is what I'm trying to say. However... I can tell that the author is trying to build up the suspense, so I can not speak to how appropriate books 2, 3, and 4 will be. I rarely do romance, I mostly read YA dystopian thriller type, but I'm currently trying out the romance package from audible and this was in my recommendations. Well Audible... you know me well, because this book was right up my alley! One thing that's very important to me in a book is a likeable main character. I personally love strong, smart female main characters and Jess is just that. The Male lead is... typical but that's okay I guess his personality would be "swoon worthy" to most women. I also like a love triangle and unfortunately this book is missing that. But I can live without it because this book has so what sooo many romance books is missing which is action, action, action! The main characters aren't just laying around having sex all day and getting into pretty arguments. There's an actual storyline and purpose (sealing the tear) which I love. Hats off to the author, I can't wait to read book 2.

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

I love this series so much that this review might come off as a love letter. I pester anyone that I meet to read it. This will make you laugh, make you cry, make you wet 😂 (there is a lot of sex scenes surprisingly). It was long, but I don't mind that... I'm actually glad there's another book. The story gets even more complicated... if that possible and there's not a dull character in the book. Never a dull moment either... it's hard for me to write reviews without giving spoilers, that's why this review is so vague 😅 What I will say is this is definitely a must read, you will not regret it.

This was an excellent story. It didn't have the ending that I wanted, but it was a proper ending and I can respect it.
