by Shelley Sackier
Expected Publication: February 5, 2019
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

In the world of healers, there is no room for magic.Fee knows this, just as certainly as she knows that her magic must be kept secret.

But the crown prince Xavi, Fee’s best friend and only source of comfort, is sick. So sick, that Fee can barely contain the magic lying dormant inside her. She could use it, just a little, to heal him. But magic comes at a deadly cost—and attracts those who would seek to snuff it out forever.

A wisp of a spell later, Fee finds herself caught in a whirl of secret motivations and dark pasts, where no one is who—or what—they appear to be. And saving her best friend means delving deeper into the tempting and treacherous world whose call she’s long resisted—uncovering a secret that will change everything.

Thank you HarperTeen for providing me with a copy for an honest review.

My Thoughts
Before I start my review, I just want to say that the cover for this book is absolutely stunning! I’m sitting at 3.5/4 star rating for this one and since my thoughts are all over the place, I was thinking of doing a bullet style review. 

What I liked:
-This story was more focused on Fee’s journey of saving her realm and her best friend Xavi than romance.
-I adored the friendship between Fee and Xavi! It was refreshing to see a platonic relationship between a guy and girl without being blurred by romance. 
-There was an air of mystery that kept me reading way past my bedtime! I never knew who was a bad guy or when new secrets would come out. 

What I felt could have been better: 
-I felt as if I was missing information sometimes while reading. There could have been more background information regarding the magic and class system.

Besides my issue with the world building, the story was very whimsical and I really enjoyed it! 

This was a buddy read with the beautiful Melanie
