Hidden Beneath the Embers by Fay Bec is a dark fantasy book (with romance included of course), which frankly feels like one of my new favourite genres. Combine my OG favourite fantasy with one of my more recent favourites dark romance? Yes please! I got immediate Cinderella vibes off the start of this book, and as it proceeded it was reminiscent of A Court of Thorns and Roses in some ways, though darker. Which if I’m being honest, I’m clearly all about the darker stories.
