Unravel the Dusk by Elizabeth Lim

This is the last book in the Blood of Stars duology

Maia Tamarin proved her skill as a tailor when she wove the dresses of the sun, the moon, and the stars, but it will take more than a beautiful gown to hide the darkness rising up within her. . . . The stakes are higher than ever in this breathtaking sequel to Spin the Dawn, perfect for fans of Six of Crows.

Maia Tamarin’s journey to sew the dresses of the sun, the moon, and the stars has taken a grievous toll. She returns to a kingdom on the brink of war. Edan, the boy she loves, is gone–perhaps forever–and no sooner does she set foot in the Autumn Palace than she is forced to don the dress of the sun and assume the place of the emperor’s bride-to-be to keep the peace. When the emperor’s rivals learn of her deception, there is hell to pay, but the war raging around Maia is nothing compared to the battle within. Ever since she was touched by the demon Bandur, she has been changing . . . glancing in the mirror to see her own eyes glowing red; losing control of her magic, her body, her mind. It’s only a matter of time before Maia loses herself completely, and in the meantime she will stop at nothing to find Edan, protect her family, and bring lasting peace to her country.

As soon as I finished Spin the Dawn, I picked up Unravel the Dusk.

I just adore the Blood of Stars world and I loved seeing how the dresses were going to be part of the story.

There was quite a few twists throughout and some that I needed to know the ending for. The way in which Lim switched things from where I thought the story was going was amazing.

Maia and Eden continue to be my favourite relationship and I just adore their interactions. I really liked meeting more new characters but also seeing those from the first book in a different way.

Overall I absolutely adored Unravel the Dusk and loved the ending. Will definitely be reading this duology again.
