Maia Tamarin’s journey to sew the dresses of the sun, the moon and the stars has taken a grievous toll. She returns to a kingdom on the brink of war. The boy she loves is gone, and she is forced to don the dress of the sun and assume the place of the emperor’s bride-to-be to keep the peace.
But the war raging around Maia is nothing compared to the battle within. Ever since she was touched by the demon Bandur, she has been changing . . . glancing in the mirror to see her own eyes glowing red, losing control of her magic, her body, her mind. It’s only a matter of time before Maia loses herself completely, but she will stop at nothing to find Edan, protect her family, and bring lasting peace to her country.
YA fantasy readers will love the sizzling forbidden romance, mystery, and intrigue of Unravel the Dusk
About the book
Short review this time, too.
I liked this second book less than the first. I understood the ending way before the actual finale even if I didn’t have idea who would become the emperor.
I liked the story between Edan and Maia, I liked how Maia is described and what she does. Even if I liked the first book more, I recommend this series. I didn’t find anything that I disliked, I just find it a little bit slow in the beginning and the middle and too fast the ending.
Anyway, I liked the world built by the author and the characters, too.
And, here, too, I like the second cover more than the first, the one with the palace.
