  1. Ny favorit
    Vendis, 28 juni 2023

    Boken är verkligen riktigt bra och riktigt bra skriven! Engelskan är dock nog inte så lättläst för någon som nyss börjat, det finns många svåra ord. Jag har läst om boken 2 gånger för att den är så himla bra! Den är beskrivande på ett sätt som verkligen ger en inlevelse och dialogerna är välutänkta! Boken är fylld av beskrivningar och känslor som på ett sätt känns unikt till Freya Marskes verk. Boken är lite spicy men också väldigt underhållande. 5/5

  2. Fantastisk!
    -, 1 juni 2023

    Älskade den här boken. Så fin slow burn romance med dynamiska karaktärer som jag fortfarande tänker på. 4/5 i Spicy, och helt fantastisk magisk värld placerad i 1900-talets London. Jag kunde inte sluta läsa!
