Hello everyone! I finally am posting another review on here! I had the pleasure of reading an ARC of this book through NetGalley. I’m excited to share this review with you all today!
Aissa and Zandria are twin sisters with a secret–they are Magi, a people with magical abilities who almost got wiped out due to the technological advances of the Technocrats. However, they have another secret that is much more dangerous–their magic can be used on the very technology that killed their people. The girls are spies in the capitol Technocrat city along with their parents. For the sake of their people, the girls take on a mission while pursuing their own goals at the same time. Aissa usually has no problem following orders, but a certain Technocrat is making it harder for her to follow through. What is the most important to her: family, orders, or love?
This book was a pretty interesting take on a Romeo and Juliet type of story. I had a hard time getting into the story at first due to all the information about the Magi vs. Technocrats that I had to read through. Once I got past that, I thoroughly enjoyed the story! Aissa is such a strong, level-headed character. I really liked watching her wrestle with her duty and her heart. I don’t want to spoil anything so I can’t discuss my favorite character, but the side characters in this story are also very likable! The whole concept of the Magi was fascinating and I hope to see the characters learn more in the next book. Ultimately, this was a great fantasy romance and I’m looking forward to the next book!
