bookshelves: read-in-2017
Read 2 times. Last read August 6, 2017 to August 23, 2017.

I so much liked the description of this book, so when I was approved to receive an ARC of it, I was happy. But it took me 17 days to read a book with 180 pages. Yes, I really wanted it to be good, but it wasn’t.

I liked the idea of bonding with animal and I had never read a book with gender fluid protagonist, so I really wanted to know more. Apart of that, I’m huge fantasy fan and the whole premise of bonding animals and fight in a war and spying and everything else sounded perfect. But after I read 20% of the book everything started to feel flat and not okay.

In my opinion, the world building was not enough – lots of things wasn’t explained – I wanted to know more about Thim, how it was founded and at least a small portion of the story of all inhabitors. Instead, we see only the insecurities of the main character. All of his decisions was based on their own feelings and they were selfish and childish most of the time.
