4 stars (I liked it a lot)
I love the dynamic between Alcatraz and Bastille, and this book is chock full of it. Alcatraz is finally in the city where he belongs, surrounded by family. There central conflict surrounds Bastille herself: whether she is worthy to be a knight of Crystallia. There’s lots of action and humor and twists. It’s a very fun read, and it was delightful to see each character’s strengths and weaknesses drive the plot and provide a very satisfying ending. I’m sticking with this series for the duration.
