Ilahara - The Last Myrassar (Ilahara #1) by C. M. Karys - A Review


"A Dragon Does Not Fear The Flames"

Today I am reviewing Ilahara : The Last Myrassar by C. M. Karys. It is a New Adult Fantasy book and it is the first in the Ilahara series. The book was released on November 2021 by Literary Wanderlast.

First of all the book is written by two fellow bookstagrammers Chiara (@_ckarys) and Maria (@_mkarys) and I am really happy and proud of them.

Aside from that the book was one of my most anticipated releases and after reading it this month, I loved it. I really liked the story, the world, the characters , the writing... everything...
The story has all my favourite elements such as assassins, intrigues and of course dragons. The writing and the world-building makes you feel that you are there yourself and you can not even notice that Ilahara is written by two authors. 
As far as characters go we have a group of them that come from different backgrounds but are all connected somehow. I loved the multiple POVs and the fact that we have a slow enemies-to-lovers romance, which is one of my favourite tropes. 
I loved the connection between the characters and the friendship dynamics and I cannot pick a favourite among them.

Now all I want is book 2 because this one ended in a pretty strong cliffhanger.

I highly recommend checking out Ilahara. You will not regret it!

Rating: 5 Stars

Princess Asharaya Myrassar lost everything on the night of the Coup of Fire when the usurper queen, Aerella Argarys, slaughtered the royal family and claimed the throne of the fae kingdom of Ilahara. After seeking refuge on the human continent and leaving her magical past behind, Asharaya takes on a new identity: Shara, an assassin blessed with dark powers.

Prince Derron Argarys owes his royal title to his mother's coup, and although he has all the status and power one could wish for, he cannot escape the memories of the brutal death of the former prince he once called friend. Now the heir to the throne, Derron must set aside his memories and learn to rule by the Argarys words: show your power, hide your heart.

But when a crone proclaims the last of the dragon-blessed rulers still lives and prophesizes Asharaya's return to Ilahara, friend and foe alike set out to find her, Derron among them. Yet he discovers in Asharaya not only a cold and beautiful assassin but also the princess he once knew. When the chance to rid his family of the Myrassar threat comes, Derron hesitates in dealing the killing blow, charting a new course that may see Asharaya's return to Ilahara to face her greatest enemy and her destiny as the last dragon-blessed queen.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
