's review

it was ok

I didn’t like either main character. I found Louise to be manipulative and unnecessarily vulgar, while Reid was stubborn and boring, and the two had very little chemistry with one another. They became more tolerable as the novel went on, but much as I appreciate a morally flawed/gray character, these two didn’t find favor with me.
In terms of pacing, I found the first and last parts to be fact paced and exciting, while the second (middle) part was too slow for my liking. By far my favorite part of the novel (and what redeemed it somewhat for me) was the world/magic system. It was well developed and interesting and I ate it up.
