About this deal

The only thing I can really say that is even close to a criticism is that there is so much lingo in here (which I love), but I wish there was a glossary in the back. Karina and Malik meets during the Solstasia and they fall in love with each other but each of them struggles with their individual intentions. She happens upon Malik, who fled from the pub where he was having drinks and discussing an alliance with two of the other champions, Tunde and Driss. In the interim, Malik has an encounter with Idir, and Malik attempts to gain the upper hand with his illusions, but Idir is too powerful. Although we only got glimpses for most of them, they completely intrigued me and I can't wait to see more of them in the future.

Since they’re also complex teenagers dealing with mental illnesses, trauma, and high-stress environments, I could hardly blame them for moments of irrationality. There seemed to be this lack of clarity and I understoof why she did that by the end of the novel; however, I know that it may stop people from seeking to continue it.Malik is poor and part of a discriminated-against cultural minority, and he and his sisters end up in a Jareth from Labyrinth-type situation with one of the gods when his younger sister accidentally makes a bargain and the only way to save her is to, you guessed it, assassinate the princess Karina. It's nothing any of us haven't read before, nothing really original, more like your typical I-came-to-kill-you-but-I-ended-up-loving-you kind of story, but very, very good nontheless.

He suffers through a mental affliction, while the female protagonist suffers through a physical one, and I feel as though often times those would be reversed in other books I’ve read.

To access you ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. so while I wait for my copy to renew again from the library, and since I did read almost a quarter of it, I will post my (rated) review with my thoughts so far, and will update if they change once I try to read it again and give it a second shot. But only one of them outs himself as the one who hired the assassin, though he swears it was only supposed to be an “attempt” to scare the Kestrel into starting war herself with Arkwasi. Malik thinks it’s because she wants Tunde to win so she’ll marry her former flame, but really it’s because Karina doesn’t want to kill this boy she also likes. Malik is by far one of my absolute favorite characters because he wasn’t strong in the ways that people expected him to be, but in his own way and that’s what mattered the most.

But when a vengeful spirit abducts his younger sister, Nadia, as payment to enter the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia’s freedom. i really loved malik as a character, he was so soft and the rep for his anxiety was amazing but i didn’t really care for karina, i found myself dreading her characters because i feel like her character and her characters drive wasn’t conveyed well. Tunde does, hesitantly, and the soldiers take Leila away because Malik is the only one who can save Nadia. The West African Folklore she based it on was absolutely fascinating to read, and beautifully combined with the rest of the story. duh) I did find the fact that both Karina and Malik were planning on killing the other each for their own reasons to be a very nice touch.Because he is a powerful sorcerer who has been working with Idir himself and wants to perform the resurrection ritual on Hanane, his true love.
