Book review: Daggers and Smoke, by Avery Song & Quinn Ashwood

. tata.lifepages | Gifted | NA fantasy |

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book is full of SASS! The story follows Willa, who is one of the worlds only infinite mage’s and daughter of two of the most powerful M.E.I.D agents, who must together with her new assigned partner, William, discover the magical daggers hidden in unique elite academies throughout the globe, to save the world from impending doom. Willa is sassy, confident, powerful and this books just screams female empowerment! Willa and William HATE each other at first, so enemies-to-lovers trope is on point in this book (which I LOVE!), and there is a third wheel (Adam, former ex-lover and ex-partner) who keeps getting in the way.

The cover is so cute!
"If you're going to make it into a challenge," William began, "I actually would have tolerated her just to prove you wrong.”
"Aww." I clapped. "So romantic."

The world building is at first a bit difficult to grasp, it is a lot of information, but as soon as you get deeper into the novel it becomes clearer. As a reader, my favorite part of the book was the confrontation in Willa’s bedroom between her, William, Adam, her parents and her boss. This section is full of witty and sassy remarks, I laughed and felt myself blush many times! This book sets the stage very well for what I expect to be an action-packed series FULL of magic. The character development is very well done, I felt an easy connection to Willa and William and could visualize clearly their personalities and traits. There is a lot of chemistry between the characters which is something that is really important to me (you guys know I love chemistry!).

 I recommend this novel for people looking for LOTS of MAGIC, secret societies, enemies-to-lovers trope and academy settings! You can check out more about the book and the author here.
