I 95% bought this book because of the gorgeous cover! Also because of the naked hardcover!
My favourite thing about this book was definitely the magic system. I love how certain witches have powers in certain seasons, or at least are stronger in certain seasons. And also how it was all connected to weather situations.
I really liked how this book talked about environmental problems. I mean it could have addressed it more, but it is not something we often see in books, so that was really interesting!
I really didn’t feel much for any of the characters, we only got to learn Clara, but I still felt like I didn’t know her that well. It just felt like there wasn’t much to her besides her being the Ever witch, which we are reminded about a lot. She was slowly getting on my nerves the further we got into the book. I thought Sang was interesting at parts, and I would have liked to learn more about her ex, I think she was the most interesting character.
And probably because I did not really care for the characters much, I didn’t really feel the romance either.
For the plot, I kept thinking something bigger was going to happen, but it just didn’t?! So that was a bit of a letdown. But that was more something for the end of the book, in the beginning I was really enjoying the plot. With her learning all the different types of magic, and we learn alongside her!
The intrigue was good, I kept wanting to continue to listen!
I did really like the writing so I’m definitely looking forward to her 2022 release!
I definitely recommend the audiobook, the narration was really good! I do recommend this if you’re looking for an urban fantasy, standalone, that is a quick read!

I’ve seen this book everywhere and have debated whether to read it. I may get around to it eventually, but my pile is pretty full right now. Nice review, Evelyn!
For me it was just a middle of the road book, but it was an easy listen!
