It's closer to a 3.5 for me for its flaws, mostly pacing related: the second half of the novel reads much differently than the first, introducing a bunch of new characters through little vignettes that made me wonder if I'd opened a different book, and the main character masters her newfound powers way too quickly to be believable. (There's a time skip between chapters to justify her advancement, but it still seems too sudden.)

Still, despite this, the novel's a fun read. The world is intricatel

**** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review****

I started reading this with the expectation that it was the first book in a series and was totally disappointed at the end when I realised it wasn't and it was a standalone novel. There was so much more in the world that could have been written about not just the main characters Rez and Shel.

There was a nice diverse mix of characters of which most you only got a brief view of which was a shame as some seemed really interesting.

Just a little bit too thin.

I really liked the descriptive passages, but there is not enough life in the characters, and not enough world building. Everything seems abbreviated, like there was not enough content to fill the pages.

There are not many characters, at that, and the world is barely hinted at, we get a description of only the capital city and a little bit about two other locations. I guess that's to be expected in a novel, but there is not enough to justify the major turns of events in

This is the first stand-alone fantasy novel that I've read in some time. That's a good thing, because if it had been the start of a series, I wouldn't be reading the other installments.

The bad guys are purely evil, completely corrupted by their magical power. The good guys are mostly committed to the fight for freedom against the more powerful bad guys. As it turns out, they are as corruptible as any once they get a taste of power.

The ending was a surprising and completely implausible twist. If

An enjoyable and interesting read.

I was not sure that this was the type book I enjoy and started it mainly because it was the shortest read in my kindle library as my reading time was limited. As the flow of the story caught my attention I ended up missing a night of sleep unable to put this book down. It was worth the missed sleep!

Rez and Shel were fabulous characters and the story kept me so interested that I couldn't put it down. Excellent story.

Rushed but good

The pacing of this book was very lopsided, the beginning was rather slow and the ending was almost too much. Despite this, it was still a good read.

DNF'ing. I may pick it up later, I've just lost interest. It just seemed like too much of a formulaic YA.
Your typical fantasy quest adventure. This was an enjoyable fast read although it lacked depth. The change in point of views while keeping the action moving forwards also limited the connection forged with any of the characters. The plot is your typical fantasy quest adventure - rebellion to overthrow the empire and it's executed well. Shel is a strong and endearing lead and the rest of the characters are likable - if not slightly flat. It's odd these days to find a standalone and rather refresh ...more
