I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book was really good.
Despite the typical “girl dresses up as a boy” and “clumsy clueless possibly bastard son has to save the world”, the book manages to avoid cliches pretty well. The writing is very well done and is kept fast-paced to keep the reader’s attention.
The worldbuilding is done really well – very original and no glaring plot holes at all. I’m really looking forward to the second book.
