This book was more than just "elemental powers" it gave shadow and bone, mixed with avatar the last Airbender, mixed with beauty and the beast, and I know that last one will throw some people off, but it was more for the main female character working out the 'beast' who she just married. So many little twists and turns to this read that kept me turning the page.
There was some spice to the book, and i'm my humble option the right amount!
Overall, I would highly recommend "kingdom of ash and shadow" to anyone who loves Avatar: The Last Airbender or someone just a good fantasy romance read. It's a beautifully written book that is both exciting and romantic, and I have no doubt that it will leave a lasting impression, already dying for book two.
