OBS SPOILERS kan förekomma!
Handling: Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.
Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, and she can’t always decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.
As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the charming-yet-volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.
|I am sooo disapointed, i might have high standards but this book is awful boring. this book is basiclly about a triangel drama, the brothers are dark and light, our main character Sonya is obviosly falling for them..
Sonya is so annoying in the whole book, i hade my hopes for her that maybe she could change or grow up. when she got rejected by one of the brothers she just was with the other brother and yeah she walked back and fourth between them in the whole book.She was so stupid in some parts of the book that I just wanted to slap her xD
The brothers was not much better then Sonya. the youngest, Anton was just a living shadow and kept his feelings closed so nobody would know what he felt. the emperor, valko where just a fucked up boy that wanted to rule in his way. neither of them were that nice to Sonya, what i mean is when they go to parties and in public with other people they pretend to not know her or they are just ignoring her.
There really was no reason for her to be at the palace, in my opinion. She can sense emotions omg wow, no thats just useless. What good is that when she can barely control her own emotions?
This book got worse and worse meanwhile i read this book, in the end i wanted to vomit over all of them. no but seriously this book was not good, one reason can be that i hade such high hopes for this book in the beginning.
to summarize this book, Sonya spends the book being seduced by either brothers and that’s it. I am glad that i didn’t buy this book, i was really close to actually do that but in the last minut i changed my mind.
I give it 1/5 okay i would give it 0 if i could xD
