Ahhhhh my heart!!! That ending! 😱

Another fantastic journey to this gorgeous world, and I can’t wait for more.

The sister relationship was again lovely, and more nuanced this time round, which I really enjoyed. I also like that we get to see more of the magic system.

Plenty of twists and turns too, nothing toooooo stellar, but they were really good and kept the pace up.

Highly recommend this series.
