I read this book only because it cane in my Owlcrate box. Reading it made clear why a book subscription crate is so great for broadening my horizons. Sometimes it leads to unexpected delights such as this book. Sometimes there isn’t a magic piece at all that makes the right book become appealing. I didn’t find the summary of this book terribly interesting, but it was a light, unique, fascinating read.

Unfortunately, entering this court is not all she hoped from it. There are many secrets lurking under illusions, and it’s up to Sylvie to figure out how to navigate them. Big but also somewhat obvious spoilers are included below.
