This book ticks all the boxes for me. The plot is intricate and has many twists and side threads. The characters, whether human or divine are not black and white but many shades in between. Something that brings each and every one of them into vivid life. So many books have bad characters who have no redeeming features, or good characters who don't have a hair out of place, but not so here. The settings are well developed, adding a deep richness to the narrative. So, what is the book about? Chaeli, who thought she was an ordinary girl before she lost all her family, now finds she is a demi-god and either the daughter of the Prince of the Eternal Kingdom, or the Prince of the Underworld. Both are fighting for her, but not everyone plays fairly. On her shoulders rests the outcome of a war between the two princely brothers and to help her decision she has three companions. Adley is a crusader, an champion of the Eternal Kingdom, who is in love with her and shouldn't be. Nathan is a former assassin affiliated to the Underworld who is trying to break free and also is enthralled by Chaeli. The third is a shapeshifting fae, normally appearing in the form of a talking cat and one of my favorite characters. Other people are tied up in the outcome and have their part to play. How all this ties together will be revealed on reading the book. Very highly recommended.
