IrisW: “High fantasy, low stakes” – if that isn’t exactly what everyone needs right about now, I don’t know what is. This story is fluffy, adorable, slightly bittersweet and filled with absolutely mouthwatering pastry descriptions (seriously, make sure you stock up on snacks before you dive in). I loved it!
While this is obviously a fantasy novel, I think it would work really well for readers who tend to gravitate towards other genres; romance readers who don’t mind a bit of magic alongside their sapphic swooning, for example, or YA readers who are looking for some more mature characters. It would also be great for ttrpg players who want to get (back) into reading. Whatever your reading background, I’d love you to give this a try!
