About the Book:

In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll isn't in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither is willing to lose.

I really liked the overall concept of this story. This idea for a story where romance, or that is, the idea of romance is turned on its head in a new sort of society, mixed with the gorgeous cover art was enough to get my attention. Overall, I thought this was an okay read.

I really liked the world building. The author is clearly skilled at writing with description. Before long, it felt like I was alongside the characters, like I could see and hear and feel what they could as well. This descriptive writing also translated well into having a cast of voices that were unique from one another.

That being said, I really didn't care all too much for the main character. I thought she was fairly selfish and unreliable. Connecting to a character is a big thing to me while reading a book, and unfortunately I just didn't get that connection with her.

I also wasn't expecting the time travel bits of this book. While they gave cool insight and a nice twist to the story of the book, but it didn't always quite work out.

This is a book that I think overall is worth reading. It makes the reader ask themselves some interesting questions about what it means to love and be loved. I think it's a book that will lend itself well to discussion. There's really good world building and interesting concepts that come to play here. I think fans of YA fantasy and romance might like this one the best.

I was provided a copy in exchange for my honest review.
