The world-building leaves a lot to be desired; the reader is just dropped into the story without much explanation of how the systems work or why. I had a hard time finding my bearings. The characters are a little flat, but are ultimately in a story interesting enough for me to read to the end. Won’t continue the series, though.

Where’s the world building and explanation of the magic system bro??

Lots of toxic family relationships in this and a rather bland romance.
The hints we got about the different species and magic piqued my interest but nothing is elucidated about them. I was left confused over so many things. The writing was very average.
I will not be continuing the series.

Canada Reads Shortlist 2021

If you want a book about oppressed women in a magical realism historical fiction, there are several much better books to read than this one: The Young Elites trilogy by Marie Lu; The Queen of the Tearling trilogy by Erika Johansen; Graceling (first in a trilogy) by Kristen Cashore; The Riddle of the Wren by Charles de Lint; Mistborn quadrology by Brandon Sanderson... just for starters.

Neither the writing, (un)engaging characters, nor world-building were adequate to make this an enjoyable read.… (mais)

It was short and sweet. A nice start to what could be nice little series
