Goodreads' link to the book!

So what did I think?

Stars: 3/5

The idea and premise is so intriguing and sounded so perfect for me:

An East Asian fantasy reimagining of The Evil Queen legend about one peasant girl's quest to become Empress--and the darkness she must unleash to achieve her destiny.


It is entertaining with a rich world and lyrical writing. The intricately thought out main character is an anti-heroine which made a refreshing read.

I don't want to say too much about the plot so I shall just urge you to pick it up!

The usual likes and dislikes, relating to the star rating:

+1 | idea
+1 | writing
+1 | world
- 1 | characters
- 1 | pace

Read on lovelies,
