This Vicious Grace (The Last Finestra #1) by Emily Thiede - A Review


“She might be but one stitch in the tapestry, but every stitch had a purpose, and threads couldn't become art without them.”

This Vicious Grace by Emily Thiede is a YA fantasy book and the first in The Last Finestra series. The book was released on June 2022.

I wasn't expecting to like this one but I loved it. Thanks to the #btww girls that picked this book for our monthly read, I found a new favourite book. 
This book has strong main characters, slow-burn romance and interesting magic system. Alessa is strong, determined and stubborn. Dante is brave, strong, sweet and also very handsome. I loved him. 
I really liked the story and the Italian setting, as well as the magic system. My favourite was the banter between our main characters. I loved every part of it. Alessa and Dante are a joy to read. 
There are also some twists and turns that I wasn't expecting and the ending was really good and intense. I cannot wait for book two.

Rating: 5 Stars

About the book:

Three weddings. Three funerals. Alessa's gift from the gods is supposed to magnify a partner's magic, not kill every suitor she touches.

Now, with only weeks left until a hungry swarm of demons devours everything on her island home, Alessa is running out of time to find a partner and stop the invasion. When a powerful priest convinces the faithful that killing Alessa is the island's only hope, her own soldiers try to assassinate her.

Desperate to survive, Alessa hires Dante, a cynical outcast marked as a killer, to become her personal bodyguard. But as rebellion explodes outside the gates, Dante's dark secrets may be the biggest betrayal. He holds the key to her survival and her heart, but is he the one person who can help her master her gift or destroy her once and for all?

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