This book is the feeling of another hand in yours that comforts you when the going gets rough. It doesn't tell you "it's going to be okay." It says "I understand."

Witches, royalty, and Revolution. Oh my!!

Dani and Dorian are forced to pick their side in a revolt against the monarchy. While light and whimsical the darker moments can feel quite sobering in comparison. I read this back when it was a webtoon alone. A plot twist threw me through a loop, and it will come center stage in vol.2! Strap in this story is a ride and I'm here for it!
