A Song of Wraiths and Ruin is about two main characters, Malik and Karina. This book is fantasy fiction with a little bit of West African culture as inspiration for key parts of the book. The point of view shifts from Malik and Karina throughout the book to show two very different perspectives, one a poor refugee, and the other a princess. Unfortunately, both Malik and Karina need the other to die in order to save someone they love. Throughout the entire book, the reader can see Malik and Karina grow together, while simultaneously trying to work up the nerve to kill the other.
I thought that this book was great! It was a little confusing at first to keep up with the character switches and roles of certain characters, but in the end, it was worth it. I really enjoyed seeing how Malik and Karina grew together and their internal struggles about having to kill the other person. I would definitely recommend reading this book, and I am anxiously waiting for the next book in the series to come out!
