I was very enthusiastic about this book since I like the author very much. I was however slightly disappointed. Although the story is interesting, it seems to me that it lacks substance and I felt like it was unfinished. I was of course fascinated by the magical details and the author's style and writing is perfect as expected. But I would have loved a more elaborate story, more details, just...more. The story would have benefited from a more elaborate plot and action.
It is however a young-adult book so I suppose that would be the explanation for it. I didn't really know that the author writes YA(which I don't like) or dystopian novels(some of them I do like) so it was a surprise to me.I can see the resemblance to another young adult novel I read (I only read one so I can only compare it to that one). Had I known about this before, I wouldn't have read it. I would therefore only recommend this book to a teen.
