"A delightful quick read! I really want more; I just love this series!! I love how we got a peek into Cardan's past life. In addition to how that was portrayed to us; the illustrations were so beautiful! We didn’t get to see much interactions between both Jude and Cardan in this book, but the few times they did were adorable. They are just so perfect for one another."
