- eventi raccontati senza fluidita
- lack of characterisation -> quite flat characters and not remarkable setting
- world building confusion
- non mi hanno minimamente coinvolto né la storia, né i personaggi :( ( )

The voice is smart, sassy, and fresh. The world is new and has potential.
There were just two problems that nagged at me. 1, could we not pay an inordinate amount of attention to his bare chest?And, 2, the narrative was jumpy. Cleverly, the chapters did what good chapters do: they ended in the middle of action. However, when the next chapter began it was confusing because it would often jump forward in time, switch locations, reference previously unmentioned locations etc. It required a lot of reverse reading.

Everything about this book screams "you will love me!" to me and my tastes but for some reason I just could not connect with it. I adore the setting, the lore and mythology, but I just didn't empathise or connect with the characters and I can't pinpoint why. I think I need more family/friendship dynamics in my books, lately. That's something I've found myself really enjoying.

Adventure-wise, this book was non-stop. I don't feel as though a single page went by that something new and exciting wasn't happening. It's a pretty quick read, may be good if you're looking for something light and adventurous!

Unfortunately, I don't think I will continue with the series. ( )

Winner of the 2016 Best Debut Author (on Goodreads), I was interested to read this one. A combination Western/Arabian story, the book has its strengths and weaknesses. The world building was strong, especially so in respect of some of the magical, deity and cultural elements and also the various settings: villages, cities, caravans. oases, caves, etc. The main characters were solid: Amani, whose goal in life is to escape her dreary life and lecherous adoptive father and the mysterious Jin. I think their relationship was cemented well within the first 10 pages at a sharpshooting competition. At points, I found the book drifted into unnecessary and uninteresting detail, and I had trouble distinguishing the brothers/sisters of Jin as well as their talents. I think a listing would be a good addition for future printings (and the e-book.) Like most of my GR friends, I think this is 3.5 stars. ( )

3.5 Stars

This book wasn't terrible. I did find myself rolling my eyes every few times Jin and Amani interacted, but the plot definitely had potential. I didn't know what the plot was half the time because it kept changing and was as wishy-washy as the main character-- but it was okay.

I agree with most people who have done reviews of this book: wasn't great, wasn't awful.

I will disagree with them about it being boring, though. It was slow at some points, but that didn't bother me. I usually find myself drawn to the journey/adventure stories where they are on the road for long periods of time. I feel like those books have the best character development and drag out like the journey does. It brings me into the story a little bit more, so that didn't bother me.

What did bother me was that the character development on said journey seemed so forced. Maybe it's because it's a YA novel, but I didn't like being explicitly told about the character development again and again.. and again.

Overall it wasn't bad. I might pick up the sequel. Hopefully the cover is as pretty as this one was.. ( )
