A gender swapped Prince and the Pauper, hm? Colour me curious.

This gave off "Reverie" vibes and I wasn't feeling it. There were just too many similarities and I just had a hard time engrossing myself in the read. Maybe it's my reading slump or just the novel itself, I just couldn't connect with lead characters Emilie and Annette nor the storyline despite loving the LGBT concept. It's not you, it's me I swear!

Magic was the only thing that wanted me.

Holy magic system.

This was so much more fierce (and bloody) than I expected but I loved it! A real highlight that lands it on my Inspiration shelf was the creative and gorgeously-described application of the magic systems. This one definitely doesn't wait for you to catch up and the middle got a bit dizzying and tangled, but I can forgive it thanks to that stellar climax.

I loved the main characters - only problem I think would be that I loved them both because they were...so similar to me, but maybe that's just my worst enemy, first person POV swaps, coming back to haunt me - and the overall convenience of the set-up. Because of this, it probably would have done me some good to write notes on the TONS of side characters.

Regardless, this was a strong stand-alone fantasy that swept me away. Every single time we got into a gritty explanation of the magic I was so immersed. My favourite kind of nearly lawless, chaotic magic. And it had a lot of powerful things to say about the world's politics and monarchy as well.

Politics, so far as I could tell, was lying until the truth got too worn down to care.

And I'm just so proud of my girl Coline :') ! Great privilege to get this ARC. ( )

This is out today, go read it y'all!!

I received this book from Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review.

This book meant the absolute world to me. Every time I think it I'm just filled with this intense love and emotion. I could flail about this book forever, I swear. It makes me so happy (except for when it's RIPPING MY HEART OUT).

Objectively speaking, this book is far from perfect
. I think if this book hadn't hit me on so deeply personal a level, it would have been a solid four stars. Not at all a bad rating, still very much a book I would highly recommend (HI THIS IS ME TELLING YOU TO GO READ THIS BOOK ASAP), but I do recognize it has some flaws from a purely technical perspective (that said I don't care, READ IT, it's gooooood).

THE NOT SO GOOD

- look there were some inconsistencies. not huge things, but a fair amount of little things. it might be that this is just how arcs are, I don't know (I've only ever read like three), but there were... more than felt entirely justified by it being an arc. It was sort of annoying.

- also if I'm being honest.... I was sort of confused by the plot half the time. I like... almost knew what was going on, but sometimes I wasn't entirely sure. I had a good enough sense that it didn't actually detract from the plot, and it is entirely possible that I was just tired and not functioning too well, but I do feel the plots just a little... weak in places. If you're a character driven reader like me, it's probably not bad enough for you to care, but if you're plot driven this probably isn't the book for you.

THE VERY GOOD

- the magic ahhhhhh. I was a bit iffy on it at first, because it appears to be gendered magic which is literally never cool, but then as the book goes on you discover that in fact that is 100% bullshit and society just made it up, and if that isn't god tier commentary I don't know what is.
Also I loooooved the way the magic had such heavy consequences. It really helped raise the stakes, and also was just such a unique magic system.

- as I touched on in my last point, there is a lot of political commentary in this book, especially on classism and gender roles, and I thought it was done extremely well. It might make you uncomfortable, but that's why it's so necessary.

- also the representation. The representation. One of our leads is sapphic and ace (!!), and the other lead has a trans love interest. There are also various side characters who are queer, including a few for whom they/them pronouns are very casually used. I can't speak for all the rep, but I thought Annette and Yvonne were fantastic rep, and they meant so much to me.

- the romances. Annette and Yvonne were the literal cutest and their romance made me feel so many warm fuzzies they were so cute!!! And Emilie and Charles... god tier honestly. The rivals to 'I don't like you but please don't die' to begrudging friends to lovers dynamic.... I had no choice but to love it.

- the friendships! I especially loved Annette's group of friends, who were just like... the literal best. I adored their dynamic. but also Emilie and Madeline and Madeline's brother were wonderful!

- .... basically just all the character relationships. the mentor/mentee relationships, the friendships, the romances, the messy familial relationships, everything was so messy and flawed and complex and I LOVED it

- also not to devote four whole points to character related shit but like... the characters on their own were fantastic too, just saying. Annette was just the softest bean, and Emilie was an arrogant snob but she grew so much over the course of the book. This is what I mean when I say I love character development.

THE PERSONAL


look this book was great on it's own, I would have loved this book no matter what, because those characters own my whole heart.

but what really pushed this book over from great to I will fucking cry and/or squeal every time I think of it was just how much I needed this book. I grew up on books like this - high fantasy with magic, and politics, and characters studying medicine, and nobility, and strong friendships, and mentor/mentee relationships. This book reminded me so much of the books that shaped me - but those books were so straight, and so seeing myself so perfectly represented in a book like this? that meant the whole entire world to me. I'm literally tearing up just writing this. this book was everything I've always loved in a story, but gayer than I've ever seen a book like this be. This was Song of the Lioness but less problematic and queerer. this was so fucking nostalgic to me even though I'd never read it before.

but it was queer

and that honestly meant so much more to me than I ever could have guessed ( )

Extremely satisfying fantasy. Two types of magic, noonday and midnight, are set apart, but are they really so different? Start with two girls, one wealthy, but feeling like her mother has locked her into a future and magic that will stifle her, the other poor and very talented, but having little hope she'll ever get a chance to develop her abilities. When wealthy Emilie spies Annette looking at a poster announcing a noted diviner will be at the school Emilie's bound for, she uses her magic to lull her mother into a doze and offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, swap places so she can learn divination and scrying in the luxury of the school. In return, Emilie will go off to learn to be a physician's hack and hopefully, one day become a physician herself.
What follows is complex, involves deviousness, a most intriguing cast of characters, rebellion, romance, and a war started by the king to foil the growing rebellion sparked by an unknown who everyone calls Laurel. Yes, there's plenty of blood and violence, but that's what war brings. For those not bothered by this, it's a very well crafted and riveting story. ( )
