REVIEW | Empire of Gold – S.A. Chakraborty

OK, this series is catapulted to one of my favourites. It’s been a joy and a breeze to read, despite its size. And that ending was amazing, if not bittersweet for me – I cried a lot! Although the end didn’t surprise me, it wasn’t quite how I wanted it to go*

I love the growth that the characters all experienced in this one – we saw different sides to everyone. But Dara’s arc is my favourite, and it broke my heart. I both loved his chapters and despaired over them. I only wish we had more, and maybe a few other POVs – I think Muntadhir would have been really interesting!

I must admit, I struggled with the first part of the book – but with all the emotions I went through, it still gets five stars from me. And now I will mourn that there is no more.



* Mainly Dara’s end, but I get it. I really wanted it to be him and Nahri though – Ali is more like a brotherly affection, a little weird the direction it’s going/went for me.

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
