really liked it
bookshelves: ebooks, fantasy, 2010s

Fun to read, but very long. I think it would've been better if I'd read it as a paperback. 900 page long eBooks take me a long time to read. However, it was a good story. Nothing exceptional, but it was good. I gave it 3 1/2 stars on my blog. Here's the full review:
