Description

This was a really fun book to read because it had all of the classic pride and prejudice era vibes with the clothes and the world, but it also had brutal fae. Dive into this new world where danger and drama is always around the corner and even those closest to you can't be trusted. The things Fitz would say to Elle would have me melting in a puddle, I understand her hesitation, but if a man said half the things to me that he did to her, I would forever be swooning.

The romance is very slow burn (which Rachel excels at 😆) and there is plenty of tension and glances when they don’t think the other is looking 😂 I’ll include a list of tropes below but Fitz is the kind of fae to maim and ask questions later. Castle of Dusk and Shadows is the first book in Schade's Fae of Brytwilde series and in it she weaves a dark and dangerous world of royal fae politics that is upturned when Elle Blackford, a human woman determined to save her family, goes against the Queen's bargain and marries the Ashwood heir, Prince Fitz, much to his surprise and initial disappointment.I didn't much care for the heroine, as I found her straight out of YA Heroine Central Casting with her uncontrollable rage, impulsivity, and inability to not crack wise when in dangerous situations. Filled with fae deals and ghosts haunting the halls, there were quite a few twists that deviated from the original story that surprised me. As far as the audiobook goes, it was wonderful to come back to this story and listen to it all over again.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. It also had the added intrigue of a murder mystery and a ghost story in addition to the fae magic system and world building. I actually enjoyed this so much, and I'm devastated we don't get more of Fitz and Elle 😭 I just want to see what the rest of their life is like, ugh. And the key to her salvation might be her arrogant, cold husband-the one she'd planned to rob and abandon.

It just felt like the h was rejecting the H over and over again and it didn’t hit anywhere like Elizabeth rejecting Darcy felt.

This is fantasy book that has some romantic elements and those elements are really only there to further the plot. I honestly have realized that I am someone who loves the tension of slow burn but hates the wait, again I am impatient, but the wait is so worth it. I also really enjoyed seeing how Elle grapples with being accepted by the land to wield the power Fitz has bestowed on her. This book did have ghosts and spirits in it, but it was done in a way that was spooky without being weird. So think Pride and Prejudice but add in a fresh take on fae, magic, ghosts, murder, mystery, and so much more.This FMC is a truly distasteful person, in both her behavior and character, and combined with the single-sided POV, the writing was hard to stay focused on. This book definitely lived up to the expectations that I created after watching all of Rachel's marketing reels (if you do not follow her on Instagram, please do).
