Trick (Spoiler Free!) Review

“Come here, my sweeting. I have a story to share. I shall amuse you, I promise.”

– Natalia Jaster, Trick 

 

 

Hey guys! Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’re all having a lovely day. Today I’m going to be reviewing Trick by Natalia Jaster, who very kindly sent me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

Trick is a standalone fantasy that treads the line between YA and NA. It is set in the kingdom of Whimtany, where Poet is a jester and Princess Briar is visiting from another kingdom. Poet has a secret. Briar is determined to expose him. But not all secrets are necessarily bad, and as Briar discovers this, they become drawn into an alliance, and then, more dangerously, a forbidden attraction to each other.

This book is a delightful chocolate truffle of a book.

As in, it is the sort of book where the language is so beautiful, so whimsical, so evocative, that you just want to savour it. Read it aloud like poetry. Let it melt on your tongue.

For that reason alone, I’d recommend you read it. But this is one of those books that hooks you in, that brings characters vividly to life and that constantly delights you with each unfolding of the plot. It’s original. It’s romantic. It’s good.

I’m giving Trick 5/5 stars and I wish I could give more.

Thank you all for reading my review!

Has anyone else read Trick or is anyone planning to add it to your tbrs? Let me know!

 

“I can flip across a floor like liquid, juggle circles around you, or steal your breath with a twirl. I speak with the silver tongue of a trickster.”
