Well, if we thought the fourth book of the Twisted Pages series was going to suffer from a lack of tension in comparison to its predecessors we were sorely mistaken!

Of Thieves and Shadows whisks us straight back to the ballroom we were left reeling in at the end of Of Glass and Ashes. Aika has the proposal that she was ordered to obtain, but at what cost? Can she follow through with Madame’s orders whilst knowing now what she does about the Prince?

This fierce Cinderella retelling spares no mercy with it’s main character. Aika’s loyalties are pulled in every direction throughout this story and, as such, she really grows as a character. Don’t get me wrong, the arsonist still blazes inside of her but Aika matures throughout her ordeal, recognising the impact of her past actions and coming to terms with her personal trauma.

With some long-awaited POVs from Remy, a super cute animal friend and some seriously funny supporting characters, Elle and Robin ensure that OTAS isn’t entirely doom and gloom but regardless, I was still on the edge of my seat to the very last page.

Of Thieves and Shadows is a no-holds-barred, twisty, tension filled finale to Aika’s duology. I can’t wait to see what Elle and Robin have in store for Zaina and Aika next, and to meet their mysterious sister Melodi.

TW : This book includes themes and memories of torture, history of child abuse, childhood sexual assault and attempted sexual assault.
