    A Hidden Gem

    A friend recommended this book to me, and I am so grateful she did. I adored every page of it. The story was compelling not just for its engaging plot, but for the deep and complex familial relationships the author has written in. Not just between the main sisters (though they are of course the main relationship that is explored), but between mother, father, and new friends that are foreign to two girls who have been trapped in a tower for literally their entire lives. There are so many difficult and challenging emotions faced by Zuhra and Inara, two girls who could not be more different, yet who share a tender, loving bond. Yet of all the relationships, I found the tension between Zuhra and her mother one of the most interesting. The emotional damage her mother has been through is both tragic and uncomfortable, even more so as twists are revealed later in the book. Zuhra and Inara are excellent characters, and their reactions become understandable as soon as you remember that these poor sisters have never had contact with anyone from outside their tower. So while Zuhra's actions might have been intense at times, I still believed her actions. Inara's a complete sweetheart and I couldn't help but sympathize with her. The secondary characters are all interesting and unique, and I would love to see more of them, since we were only granted glimpses into their character. The romances moved quickly, but I still found them endearing and sweet. The world and lore are fascinating, especially since I rarely see gryphons as a prominent creature in YA. The action was intense, and led to a wicked, abrupt twist that I did not see coming at the end, yet has me wanting more. This is one of those books that has likely flown under the radar for many readers, but I encourage everyone to go and pick it up and give it a chance. It's a heart-wrenching, emotional, thrilling journey that is a true treasure to the YA Fantasy genre. Don't let it pass you by!
