Review: Cast in Firelight by Dana Swift (Spoiler-Free)

A note tied around the jar's lid read, Thought you might need this soon. Unscrewing the cap, I find the potion I taught Jatin to settle my cramps. Good Gods. He makes it hard not to love him. Ladies, get yourself a man who would learn how to make period potions for you. Just a daily reminder to keep your standards that high. It worked really well for Adraa, even when she thought this boy was her fiancé's guard and she'd never be allowed to marry him. ^ That right there is just a taste of all the angst in this book, and I'm delighted to say I absolutely ate it up. I'm a sucker for secret identities, criminal underbellies, overcoming failure, and pretty much everything this book had to offer. I knocked a half star for the beginning feeling a little generic, but once we hit like 25% I was hooked. And don't even get me started on the second half !! I was SWEATING. The twists were so well done, I honestly didn't see a single one coming. I'm so pleased with how this book left off, with how much feels resolved, but also what's left to be done. The world and stakes truly expanded tremendously in that third act, and I couldn't help but read it all in one sitting. I need the next installment!! But I also feel satisfied enough to be able to wait until it comes out. For now I'll just stare longingly at Adraa and Jatin fanart ;)
