I have NOT been more excited about a book for a long time now....

This may be Jennifer's debut into high fantasy but boy does it pack a punch!
I got whiplash reading this one....
Poppy is the maiden.... Hidden within the walls of the castle while hoping for a life of freedom. She has a very little contact with anyone except her friend who helps her get ready each day and her guards.... Outside her room, she must wear her veil which separates her from everyone and everything.
She rebels by sneaking out one night and has a surprise meeting with Hawke who becomes important later on in the story.
Bound to a future she doesn't understand, she must walk down the path that has been carved out for her since she was a young girl.
Mystery, murder and an underground resistance that reveals itself as you progress through the story, you will be left breathless waiting for the moment you turn to the next page!
If you like Sarah J Maas, you will definitely enjoy this incredible start to a brand new series by Jennifer L Armentrout.
