OK wow Part 2 has started and the journey has begun!

! SPOILER ALERT ! The following post contains spoilers for the chapters 17 to 21. So unless you’ve read them, DON’T PROCEED ! SPOILER ALERT !

-S P O I L E R S-

     Okay so this is the part where not that much is happening but it's still fast and interesting, making sure we keep turning the pages!

    OKAY SO  FINALLY THE DRESSES! Seriously it's such a close to impossible quest and honestly Lady Sarnai is being a total crazy person. I was so scared she was going to remember all about Maia but thank God. I legit don't get why the dresses are THAT important

      I'm enjoying learning more about Edan but damn the dude's guarding his secrets close.

     I'm so curious. I mean the Emperor is sick after Edan left so we can be 100% sure that Edan is behind the Emperor's magnificense. And obviously he bound to the emperor in some way and yet has found a way of escaping direct command. Gotta appreciate his guts.

     But I wonder what kind of hold a sickly emperor can have over a powerful enchanter! So curious.

        And Maia's right. He is probably having more trouble than her in the desert and he constantly looks tired. I can't wait for all the readers to find his hidden secrets along with Maia.

        The descriptions and the banter are my favourite. The writing is so wonderful that the imagery is super realistic and I feel like I'm traveling with Maia and Edan.

         Some scenes made me chuckle; like how in the drinking house Maia gets leather for free but Edan overpays for silk. It's nice to see the Lord Enchanter isn't all brilliant.

        Also aren't you curious about the comment Edan makes about Enchanters not leaving descendants. What is the secret of Maia's family and her grandmother!

        ALSO OKAY ALMOST FORGOT! NORBU THAT ASS ESCAPED!!! I am so salty anout that. I really hoped he'd be excecuted but UGH!!!

What do you think Edan is hiding? Why are the dresses so important?

    I’ve been waiting for your update. And I just swiped as fast as I could. These charters are crazy. Honestly the writing is so amazing I literally felt blisters and pain during Maia’s quest to have sunlight.
    Edan has so much secret hiding in his pouch.
    Lady Sarnai probably trying her best to delay the marriage and probably insult Emperor.
    Let’s see what’s coming next!

    I really like Edan’s character. He’s quite selfless tbh. And the scarifice that he has made joining Maia on this journey by disobeying a direct (indirect?) command a major feat!
    If I didn’t know any better I’d say Lady Sarnai has a personal vendetta against Maia/Keton but it’s probably her strategy to destroy the emperor by acquiring the dresses.
    I’m curious about Edan, his story so far states that he had normal family but he had a mentor who taught him all the Enchanter stuff. Also he’s a hawk?! I can’t wait to continue reading to know if Maia actually gets the complete backstory and uncovers the secrets!

    OK so second part of book is started i.e. The journey…..

    Why Lady Sarnai wants those dress?? Is it only to let the Emperor down for choosing Maia or secretly she wanted the powers???.

    Edan is a complete mystery, is he the hawk or one of the thieves.
    But i am happy he is with Maia.

    Good NEWS good NEWS!!!!!!! Maia is having feelings for Edan ❤️❤️

  • Ramya

    I actually binge read whole book and lot had happened OMG thank heavens i picked this book

  • Belinda Smith

    That magic to make everyone forget must have been tiring… Edan got tired from healing Maria’s hand… this had to be huge… poor Edan…

    Lord Xina is a poor soul… I feel sad… I hope by the end of the book, they get together!!🥺

    The three wedding dresses sound magical!😍 WOW… Laughter of the Sun, tears of the Moon and the blood of the Stars… Damn…

    The Emperor and Edan are being super cryptic!! What’s going on!! I HAVE to know!

    Maia and Edan alone for two months!!! It’s going to be fun!😂

    He left without telling the Emperor!!✨ He had to go even if he knew the Emperor wouldn’t let him!

    Man… I am missing Finlei and Sendo now!!! Maia thought Finlei would have wrapped a blanket around her shoulder and Sendo would comfort her with a story… m not crying…😭😭😭😭😭

    Just reading Norbu’s name pisses me off!!! Why wasn’t he killed? Why is he out here?😡

    So….the Emperor hadn’t left his room since Edan and Maia left…. so his charisma is cuz of Edan after all???

    Edan DID overpay🤣🤣🤣 That’s so cute!

    Norbu bribed his way out of prison?! Just like that?!?! UNBELIEVABLE!

    THE HAWK WAS EDAN!! The GOLD BRACELET!!! It makes sense now!!!! Edan has been protecting Maia!!
    It’s almost as if Edan is confined to what the Emperor says… so weird…

    I was squinting as I read through Maia going into the Temple of the Sun!!! Loving the narration!

    The dresses yield so much power that they shouldn’t be allowed to exist in the human realm?? I am guessing Lady Sarnai is simply trying to delay the wedding as much as possible …. does she have other plans???

    Edan is getting weaker by the minute… I think Edan is hiding way too much starting from his age…. did Edan have a sad childhood??? I need more on Enchanters in general.. they are made to seem otherworldly… but he says he is trained as a young enchanter from childhood?!
