I’m indifferent to this book. The story was alright and I liked it enough to finish it but that’s all this was to me, a story. I didn’t get sucked into it, I wasn’t connected to any of the characters. There’s a reason my blog is called “Fiction – A Separate World” and it’s because, to me, that’s what books are, a different world for us to get lost in. This book just didn’t do it for me.
Honestly, the most I’ve felt while reading this book was when I watched the winter finale of Once Upon A Time last night, I almost cried and I refused to accept what happened but that’s getting off the book.
I would have loved to know more about the Imnada and Fey but the readers only get a glimpse of the history.
Also when it was getting intense, it would skip it all and go to the next morning or what have you and tell the readers in a little flashback. I really didn’t like it, it was frustrating.
The writing was alright but it just didn’t have any umph for me. Usually when books are set in old times, I lose interest really quick but the beginning was exciting enough to hook my attention but it just seemed stuck after it slowed down.
Maybe if the author didn’t skip over the intense parts and make them into little flashbacks it would have been better. Even the excitement of defeating the bad guy was a little dull.
Thank you for reading my review.
