Master of One Readalong: Day 3

Stunning photo by @novellybookish

Hello Friends!

I hope everyone has been enjoying the readalong so far! It’s now day 3 and I for one can’t wait to dive back in after yesterday’s section!

But before that, we have our semi hush-hush giveaway to cover before that! What’s that? Oh just a chance to get your next FairyLoot for free as a reward for reading! Doesn’t really get better than that! And your chances are so good too! We don’t really announce this anywhere else as we truly want the person from the readalong to win! If you’d like to try your luck, all you need to do is follow these steps!

  1. Take a photo of our edition of Master of One!
  2. Include a hashtag #Fairylootmaster (very important)!
  3. Do all of this by the 15th of February!
  4. Mention down below in your comment today that you have entered and include your Instagram handle (also super important!)

Okay let’s get started everyone!

Today we’re reading chapters 39-56!

Please be warned, the following will include spoilers for Master of One by Jaida Jones & Dani Bennett Chapters 1-56! Read only if you’ve finished those chapters!


Oh wow the introduction between Inis and Two was SO touching!

“Just because these things had been taken from her didn’t mean they had ceased to exist. Or that she’d ceased to long for them”

Inis’ violent and defensive reaction to Cab completely makes sense, she was trying to protect Ivy! At least Two has managed to convince her that Cab isn’t her enemy, for now?

 “Surprise! You’ve got a fae- entwined destiny. And a really big cat.”

Classic Rags ?

Oh there’s Morien again, just in time to wedge a shard of magical glass into Inis’s heart. Oh no he can keep tabs on them through the shards in their chests, there goes any secret planning then!

Anyone else feeling bad for Cab right now? He fled the Queensguard just to wind up back where he started. Oh no, Cab is down!! I didn’t see that coming!

WOOOOW Morien is freaking scary He just killed 22 masked resistance fighters in one swoop!!

Ah crap Cab and One are gone. Were they both kidnapped by the resistance?

Oh Inis can see through Two’s eyes as well? That’s so cool!

Rags is starting to care about the others, by trying to draw Morien’s irritation he hopes to spare the others his wrath. He’s taking one for the team and possibly softening towards the others?

But this comes at a high price as he’s attacked with more shards of mirrorglass! I didn’t think I could dislike Morien more than I already did, poor Rags man. Well at least Rags and Shiny are growing closer!!

So Cab wakes up to find the mirror glass removed! A very interesting development and gives us some hope for the others, no? Wait…we have another living Fae as part of the resistance?!

Two makes the weapon sound insanely powerful but the only way for Two to protect Inis is to keep her in the dark. I need to know more! Do you have any theories as to what the great Paragon can do?

Inis and shining talon are now forming some kind of alliance here, bonding over their grief. Anyone else hoping for a possible found family to develop?

Somhairle is doing some digging and has found himself entangled in courtly intrigue! He knows something is up here, the question remains what is the Queen searching for in those tunnels?

Okay we meet the few members of the resistance there seem to be left! Sil’s talents as an Enchantrisk could come in very handy for our gang, I hope we learn more about the Fae and their different types of magic abilities!

Wait shining talon healed his hand? He can heal too? What more can this guy do?! They are holding hands! *internal screaming*

My heart is breaking for Rags as he and Shining Talon open up a little about their pasts. We finally learn about Dane but I can’t help but be curious as to the full story. Does Rags maybe blame himself for his friend’s death? Is this why he won’t allow himself to get close to Shining Talon?

The blindfolds worked? YAY! This will come in handy!

Loving the trickery, the more we learn about fae magic the better!

Oh interesting, did something happen between inis and Laisrean? Okay creepy mirror alert! Morien is messing with her, ugh I hate this guy.

The plot thickens! Turns out the Queen’s sorcerers have been bleeding the Fae dry for decades in their attempts to find the Great Paragon. Expanding her mines to seek out more fae to torture. The way she has been draining those fae children to prolong her life?! And I thought Morien was the worst!

Ah so it was Tomman who saved Sil! And it was Captain Baeth who leaked the details of their plan back to the sorcerer and Queen.

Cab has joined the resistance, yay!

AAAAHHHH Rags fell asleep on Shining Talon! What does this mean?! Do you ship them as much as I do?

Oh no Morien is at it again with the psychological torture mirror trick. But Shining Talon destroys the glass with just his hands, can’t you see he genuinely cares for you Rags? ?‍♀️

This book has so many great one liners, I present;

“Trees,” Shining Talon said, “do not like to be hugged.”

Oooooh it’s happening! The carousel of course! Oh and Somhairle’s crutch forming to patch up the wing, a nice touch! Three had been with him this whole time and an owl makes perfect sense for the prince too, no?

So Somhairle is now part of the gang and in on the plan. Plus we have a new fae who can remove those pesky shards, do we dare to hope? Will the prince’s plan to convince Morien of his fragility work and will he remain un-mirrored?

We’ve got two more days left of reading and I can’t wait to find out what is going to happen tomorrow! Please let me know all of your thoughts in the comments!

  1. Ok, it’s official: I can’t put this book down.
    I need Rags and Shining Talon moments in my life…the drunk-Rags-on-the-bed chapter? I need more of that ?? And I also have a feeling something might bloom between Ines and Cab?
    That’s how I like my books: not with a single ship, but with a whole fleet ?

    However I posted my photo, my Instagram handle is @Sputnik.books

    1. Oh yay! I’m so glad you’re loving it! ? Right i’m living for the interactions between Rags and Shining Talon! I also need more of that ?
      Ooooooh Inis and Cab, possibly!
      Thank you for entering the giveaway ❤️

    I’m still really liking this book!!

    Didn’t think that Faolan isn’t in charge, but Morien is. (Don’t like him at all!!!)
    Now we know the secret what got Tomman killed. Still wondering about Laisrean. Hopefully we read about him tomorrow!?!!

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if Rags number was a DRAGON!!!?! I totally love dragons so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!

  4. Enjoying this book so much!
    Entered the giveaway as well by posting my photo. IG is @book_craving

    1. So happy to hear that! 😀 Thank you for entering!

  5. Ok, it was a ride! Inis connection with Two is so cool.

    Morien with his mirror spell starts to be a boring wizard, but I have to say that he has a power…but how he can compete with Shining Talon.

    Talon’s magic is huge: healing, destroying glass…what else do you have for us Mr. Fea?!

    Resistance gave an interesting plot twist here, especially when Cab has joined to them.

    I’m really curious how the story will go because still few parts left to be found.

    1. And as always I forgot to add my Giveaway details. I’ll participate. My Instagram is @motive_of_the_witch.

      1. Thank you for participating! ❤️

    2. Yes! You have a good point, Shining Talon is super powerful! if he’s unleashed I can’t imagine it will end well for Morien, here’s hoping ?

      1. Fingers crossed that Shining. Talon will crash Morien once and for good. Xd

  6. I love how the story is developing, I absolutely love Rags and Shining Talon! I think there’s definitely going to be a found family which I love in books so I’m excited about that! I entered over on my Instagram @storiesandstarlight_

    1. Thank you so much for entering! 🙂 I’m so happy to hear you are enjoying the book so far, I love a found family too!

  7. It’s like 9:50 where I’m at (in the states).

    I am really enjoying this book! I love the action scenes, Rags’ humor, the possible ships, and all of questions still unanswered!

    I think it’s been a bit too easy to find all of the Masters, but hey, I’m not one of the authors.

    I’ll be posting my pic of Master of One tomorrow to complete both this and the photo challenge! My IG is @the_ya_assassin!

    1. I’m so glad to hear you are enjoying it so far!
      Thank you so much for posting and entering the competition 🙂

      1. Thank you for hosting the readalong for us and giving us this beautiful book in your box! ?

  8. What beautiful characters. Every time I think I have a favorite character, a new sparkly person steps onto the stage. I think Inis and a Cab could be good friends, if only they got to spend more time together. But whoopsies, someone got spirited away!

    I was dying when Shiny said, “Trees don’t like hugs.”

    Rags used to be my favorite, but now he keeps pining after Shiny! And in the most Tsundare way! At least this is the most pleasant of “sudden loves” that I’ve read in a while. It’s nice to see actual interactions fostering love instead of simply love at first sight.

    OoooOOooo I was so excited to see Somhairle finally get his silver buddy. He is such a beautiful creature and deserves every happiness.

    I’m posting my photo tomorrow and my Instagram username is @beckettastic

    1. Thank you so much for entering and for sharing your thoughts! 🙂

  9. It official I like Shining Talon even tho he is still so mistirious he is also so cute when he takes everything that is said word for word and I agree with you Cody the threes line was hilarious I mean trees don’t like to be hugged funny and very nice gy so far
    Yeey it’s soo awsome that there are more fay and that one of them can destroy the mirror spell fyom them I hope tgey all get them removed and then they kick Moriens ass.
    Speaking of of The Laying One I hate him so much and the queen too how dare they still magic from the fae for their cruelty buisness.
    The new master is the prince and I love that the owel is his of many and I hope he continues to listen to it and help with their plan and not betray them out to the evil doers.
    I will enter the competition and my instagram handle is danica.brnot

    1. Thank you so much for entering and sharing your thoughts too! 🙂 i hope you continue to enjoy this story!

  10. This book is getting interesting and those one liners are zingers!

    I also posted my picture for the competition on my Instagram handle: disneybeawsnbooks

    1. Thank you so much for entering! 🙂

  11. Little late but I caught up!

    Im still not as sold as I think everyone else is, honestly, though im glad Somhairle has joined the group now and we will hopefully see more of him. He’s sweet.

    I think Inis’ connecting with Two clarified much better what connecting with their part of the weapon meant than when Cab connected with One, which is good because I had been wondering what on earth happened there lol.

    I kind of wish the story would weave the relationships between the characters a bit better besides Shining Talon and Rags. I love a found family trope in books, but I dont really know much about how any of them connect with each other in Master of One beyond distance, occasional admiration and vague dislike. Can we get some platonic bonding moments, please? We all know the thief and the fae are gonna kiss at this point anyway. ?

    My current theory is that either Rags is Shining Talon’s companion-relic-weapon-numbered-thing, or Shining Talon is his. That hunk of space metal or whatever it is in Rags’ pocket is his final piece one of them hasnt connected with.

    1. Agreed. The characters need to bond!

  12. I like this book so much more than I thought initially based on the blurb! ❤️
    Rags and Talon are so damn cute together!
    The secret Tomman died for is so horrible! And I really hate these damned mirrors, that give the characters these creepy visions.
    I’m glad Rags found a way to be able to talk in secret. I hope they’ll be able to join the resistance!

  13. I love Inis!
    My insta is @penguinograce

    1. Yay I’m so glad! 🙂 Thank you for entering!

  14. Absolutely obsessed with this one and couldn’t resist finishing it (oops)
    I’ve entered the #Fairylootmaster on @introverted_reads

    1. hahahha I understand completely! So happy you enjoyed it and thank you for entering 🙂

  15. Love this book, so much fun!

    Rags and Shiny make my life right now. The sweetness of Shiny, the attentive and respecting nature, so rational and protective. But Rags, he breaks and melts my heart in the same time, covering and protecting himself from harsh word by using humor and sarcasm.

    I’m so glad there are more elves and we are now meeting the resistance as well.

    And for the end, can I just hate how much I dislike Morien, I mean dislike is too weak! I think his villainous personality bordering on unhinged is written so well that I hate him so much! Rant done! ?

    My ig is @thebooksforthree

    1. Yay I’m so glad you are enjoying it! Aren’t Rags and Shiny the best together? ? Yup Morien is THE WORST hahha

  20. Still loving this book, all the main characters and the banter.

    Have we met all of the masters as yet?

    I really want to know what that egg shaped lump Rags has does…. also want to meet Rags and Shining Talon’s creatures.

    I want to know more about Faolan, I feel like he is subtlety helping them. Also more about Somhairle’s brother who was friends with Tomman
