Rating: TBD (but probs 5 stars)

Emberfall is torn between those who believe Rhen is the rightful prince and those who are eager to begin a new era under the true heir, Grey. Grey has agreed to wait two months before attacking Rhen, and in that time, Rhen has sought the assistance of a spy despite Harper’s doubts.

Meanwhile, Lia Mara struggles to rule Syhl Shallow with a gentler hand than her mother. But some of her subjects aren’t happy that Lia Mara has an enchanted prince and magical scraver by her side. As Grey’s deadline draws nearer, Lia Mara is forced to question whether or not she can remain allied to his cause.

This will be a mini spoiler free review. Thank you to NetGalley for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Do you know how excited I was to see VOW up on NetGalley? Do you know how sad I was to see it was only an excerpt? I’m so damn excited for this book, that I had to request in anyways. I’m starved for Emberfall and for a Brigid book, so I’ll take what I can get.

Though, I totally wouldn’t say no to a full ARC (lol).

I’ve been dying to find out what happens next to Harper and Co. since last June when I read HEART.


These first four chapters promise so much, and I didn’t think I could be any more excited, but I guess I was wrong. I really need it to be January so I can finally know what happens next and what’s going to go down. I’m so impatient when it comes to any book Brigid writes and this series has been an instant fave since I read CURSE.

I can’t even tell you whose chapter I enjoyed more, because oh my god, so much is happening with these characters, in this world and I’m just too anxious, curious and excited to choose. I want more Grey, because duh. And I love Lia Mara and her strengths. Rhen needs a hug and stern talking too because that boy is so lost. And Harper – I cannot wait for her to undoubtably tear Rhen a new one and save his ass…again.

I know Brigid will not disappoint with this book. I know I’ll end up loving it and probably having my heart ripped from my chest. I’m okay with that and here for it. I’m just struggling with being patient.

If these four chapters are anything to go by, then this book is going to be phenomenal.

If you haven’t read A Curse So Dark and Lonely or A Heart So Fierce and Broken yet, what the hell are you waiting for? Get on it, you have time before A Vow So Bold and Deadly comes out and there’s no excuse.
