A Song of Wraiths and Ruin is a wildly lush read! From the first few chapters, you get a sense of urgency that doesn’t go away. I flipped through this book in a day. If you like fantasy, drama, riddles, and magic, this if the book for you.
What is this book about?

You will not be able to put this book down. I quickly read half the book without realizing I had done so. The pace of this read is go-go-go! The nonstop action and world-building will suck you in.
The world-building of A Song of Wraiths and Ruin is engulfing. You will find yourself lost in the lore and culture of Ziran, hungry to find out the truth. At first, it can feel like a lot of information; instead of easing your way into Ziran, you dive in headfirst. Once I understood what was happening, I could not put the book down.
If you like fantasy, books with strong lore, strong female characters, sweet boys, and magic–look no further than A Song of Wraiths and Ruin.
