(Buddy read with Rashika)

Rashika and I had a bit of a freakout about what to rate this book because on the one hand, the world building and the plot and the creepy factor were all awesome, and on the other hand, the romance and the characters were terrible.

My god, the romances. None of them were developed- instalove left, right and centre, and I couldn't help but feel that the author was trying to smoosh the characters together just because they all happened to be Diviners.

And OMFG Evie. EVIE IS SO ANNOYING. She just made so many poor decisions, and was so selfish and -_- She did get slightly better in the end, and I do hope she gets better in the sequel (which I'll definitely be reading because there are so many mysteries yet to be revealed...)

Overall: 7/10
Plot: 4/5
Romance: 2/5
Writing: 4/5
World Building: 4/5
Characters: 2/5
Cover: 2/5 (Aus)
4/5 (US)
