's review

liked it

you know that ‘second book slump’ that series sometimes get? this book is guilty of that. it wasnt necessarily bad, it was just too slow (it took about 250 pages before anything even happened). however, when it picked up, it really picked up. i still think the premise of these books is interesting, but i feel like it hasnt captivated me as much as i wanted it to. the characters are likeable, the plot is unique, the world building is excellent, and the writing is fine - its just something, some ‘it factor,’ is missing to make me love this. i will most likely read the next book to see if my opinion of this series changes.

message 4: by Aleksandra (new) - added it

Aleksandra I tried picking this book up, but I was SOO confused since page 1... totally cant get into it.

jessica ashleigh - hahaha. same, girl. same.

aleksandra - that was totally me when i read the first book. i had made it about halfway and thought 'i have no idea whats going on, but i might as well finish it.' 😂

Melody Sams I liked this one even more than 1! I can definitely see why you were a bit skeptical towards the beginning though. I’m curious to know what you’d think of 3 if you read it!

jessica thank, melody! im really happy you enjoyed this!! :)
