Publisher's Summary

To save a fae kingdom, a trans witch must face his traumatic past and the royal fiancé he left behind. This debut YA fantasy will leave you spellbound.

Wyatt would give anything to forget where he came from—but a kingdom demands its king.

In Asalin, fae rule and witches like Wyatt Croft…don't. Wyatt's betrothal to his best friend, fae prince Emyr North, was supposed to change that. But when Wyatt lost control of his magic one devastating night, he fled to the human world. 

Now a coldly distant Emyr has hunted him down. Despite transgender Wyatt's newfound identity and troubling past, Emyr has no intention of dissolving their engagement. In fact, he claims they must marry now or risk losing the throne. Jaded, Wyatt strikes a deal with the enemy, hoping to escape Asalin forever. But as he gets to know Emyr, Wyatt realizes the boy he once loved may still exist. And as the witches face worsening conditions, he must decide once and for all what's more important—his people or his freedom.

meh

I just was a underwhelmed. this is very much a self-indulgent work, which isnt bad in itself but i didnt really like. plot holes here and there. too many memes used by people who shouldnt know what memes even are.

One of the most frustrating books I've read

I couldn't finish this one. The main character was awful, the romance was nonexistent, and the "worldbuilding" made me so furious that I had to stop every couple of minutes. Skip this one.

A wonderful fantasy book, that touches on dark truths.

I absolutely loved this book! It had me laughing so often. I think Wyatt is hilarious and relatable. Especially the way he’s not created to be the perfect ideal of what it means to be trans. Instead he’s an angry teenager with a lot of trauma to work through.
This is the type of fantasy book I wish had been available to me when I was a teen. Very fun and full of magic, while still touching on some very serious topics.

Hilarious fantasy with LGBTQ+ rep!

This was absolutely stunning, I've been searching for books that remind me of how much I adore reading, and this is certainly one of them! The voice acting made a distinct difference between all characters and narration was lovely.
YA books in my experience usually suffer from over used tropes but there was no queerbating here or irritating love triangles! The main character is hilarious as hell, and the entire cast has an array of queer folk.
If you like fantasy, magic, representation of all kinds, this is definitely the book for you.
