Of Fire and Stars
I liked this book more than the first one, I think. Plot The plot is one of the things that I wish the book would have done better. Because a guy who wants nothing but romance and a guy who wants nothing but sex will never work-right. She hides this fact because she has been betrothed since childhood to the Prince of Mynaria, to bind their kingdoms together in peace.They begin by disliking each other, Inkmistress, but I want Denna and Mare. Other Editions bbook. I was excited for Inkmistress and really enjoyed it. One of the reasons I feel a little let down is because I loved the prequel novel.
The premise of this book is striking. But just after Mare and Denna arrive in Zumorda, an attack on a border town changes everything. And if you're not gay, there's nothing here executed particularly well or particularly original to win you over. The horse yawned as if entirely bored.

Of Fire and Stars , Of Ice and Shadows and Inkmistress by Audrey Coulthurst all take place in a long ago faraway kingdom with magic — old magic, that is bound to the gods and to the land. Many have affinities for the magic, and others fear it. In all three of these novels, magic is power — but love conquers all. Of Fire and Stars focuses on two princesses in a dual narrative, strong and brilliant, underestimated by their respective families. Princess Denna is from a land where magic is not openly practiced, although she herself has an affinity for it — mostly fire. She hides this fact because she has been betrothed since childhood to the Prince of Mynaria, to bind their kingdoms together in peace, and where magic is considered dangerous and illegal.
I cannot imagine what else is needed here. Despite the risk of losing Avi forever to a religious life that objects to their love, Dani supports him through the struggle to find an answer. Yet the romance was so very well done, as usual. Outside of that.
Almost all of my complaints on world-building would be null and void with the promise of a third book. Large windows overlooked the grounds fiire the fields beyond. In the years that followed, I tried to ignore the lure of flame. One thing that Coulthurst did beautifully throughout all of her books was make the characters sexuality a non-issue.
