Song of the Forever Rains by E.J Mellow

Thank you to Amazon Publishing and NetGalley for the ARC

This is the first book in the Mousai series.

The Thief Kingdom is a place hidden within the world of Aadilor. Many whisper of its existence, but few have found this place, where magic and pleasure abound. There, the mysterious Thief King reigns supreme with the help of the Mousai, a trio of revered and feared sorceresses.

Larkyra Bassette may be the youngest of the Mousai, but when she sings her voice has the power to slay monsters. When it’s discovered the Duke of Lachlan is siphoning a poisonous drug from the Thief Kingdom and using it to abuse his tenants, Larkyra is offered her first solo mission to stop the duke. Eager to prove herself, Larkyra accepts by posing as the duke’s potential bride. But her plans grow complicated when she finds herself drawn to Lord Darius Mekenna, Lachlan’s rightful heir. Soon she suspects Darius has his own motivations for ridding Lachlan of the corrupt duke. Larkyra and Darius must learn to trust each other if there is to be any hope of saving the people of Lachlan—and themselves.

Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where lords and ladies can be murderers and thieves, and the most alluring notes are often the deadliest. Dare to listen?

Ever since seeing the cover design for Song of the Forever Rains as well as the blurb I had placed this title on my anticipated reads list for 2021.

I was immediately hooked from the first page and I enjoyed the incredible world. The world was beautifully crafted and I enjoyed getting to see the world through Larkyra’s perspective.

I really enjoyed seeing the relationship between Larkyra and Darius and how much love Larkyra has for her family.

Overall I loved Song of the Forever Rains and I can’t wait for the next book.
