Rating: 4/5 I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was a very interesting read with the perfect blend of historical fiction and fantasy. I remember thinking it was a bit slow at one point but it quickly sped up again and kept my interest hooked for the rest of the story. The author did a great job creating the book's environment. While reading, I felt like I was immersed in the time period and loved how the author created such a believable world.
