Netgalley Arc provided by Publisher in exchange for an honest review35 stars rounded up to 4 because this is a powerful compelling story enchanting you into forgetting about its flawsJillian Kuhlmann is a seductive storyteller like Scheherezada and sometimes the book read like a lyrical ballad than actual prose The tales within the story also contain some raw alluring magic bearing a strong resemblance to those of the 1001 Nights and you feel like King Shahryar always wanting It is not an action driven story nothing much is happening really Rather we are taken to a journey alongside Eiren the MC which is both physical and spiritual as she is struggling to come to terms with who she really is who she is supposed to be and what her futurerole would be as an icon the human incarnation of the goddess of destruction At the beginning I felt strangely disconnected from the MC and other characters It is all very well to be talking in riddles all the time and appear enigmatic to the ignorant heroine to piue her as well as the reader's interest but it goes on almost too long and draws the attention to the holes in the narrative that is a bit disturbingHaving said that by the end some light is shed on motivation history mythology and all is done in an engaging manner The story ends with a cliffhanger and I am glad I also have the next book to read on and hopefully find out
