I’d like to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire for this reading opportunity! I loved the general idea of this book. The beginning was very strong, unique and dark and I was very excited to read it. Even the way it was written was very cool to me. I loved that I got to see our main character in the future in between chapters as she’s sort of narrating her story of how she came to be who she presently was. That was definitely a really neat way to separate the present and the past. Everything started out very promising. I hate to say it but almost half way through, I just had a hard time with it. I felt like the plotline was very slow and lacked a lot of depth. The history and the magic was very well-explained but the plot-line itself felt like it was missing something. I did love the beginning though and I really enjoyed where Rin Chupeco went with the ending.
It’s a great book for readers who love dark and magical reads and even though it felt a little long for me, others might think differently!
I give this book a 3 out of 5 feathers!
