DNF at page 154

I could tell that this was going to be like my experience with A Darker Shade of Magic. Good premise, especially interesting since it's a Spanish inspired world. Bland characters that did nothing but annoy me. A plot that felt all over the place. Weird pacing where action was happening but I was bored. Forced romance on the horizon. Things happening that I was supposed to care about but couldn't be bothered with. Evil magic that was being released.

I put it down as soon as I realized it was going to be another Schwab book (without it being by Schwab). I read that whole damn series by her. I don't need to read another.
