Tokyo Ravens has an interesting premise. It takes place in an alternate history wherein magic is real, and officially known. As such, it has impacted on historical issues, with results that reverberate to the present time.

Sometimes the pace drags on for pages and pages of long, dry official conversations.

Esta es la primera novela japonesa adaptada al anime que leo así que no sé muy bien si todas deberían seguir estos patrones, si todas tienen estas características, pero bueno, yo lo comento.
No hay mucho diálogo, entiendo que es el primer libro en la saga y que por eso es muy introductorio, pero me hubiese gustado más interacción entre los personajes. Tampoco hay una descripción muy extensa y soy alguien que aprecia los detalles, las buenas caracterizaciones, algo que falla aquí. Poco a poco vas
