If you are a lover of fantasy, then you should definitely give it a try. I purchased the ebook version of it.
And you know how you sometimes start reading a book and think it won’t be good, before you’ve read even a single page, because of some person or review? Yeah, that happened with this book. I absolutely hate when this happens. It makes me doubt every opinion, especially the bad ones, I have about the book. I have to second guess everything because I don’t want to be biased. It sucks.
I think that was one of the major reasons I had trouble finishing the book (overthinking can be very annoying). That’s not to say there weren’t other reasons. This is a good book but it’s not flawless. The world that the author created is certainly interesting. And we got a great introduction to the villain. I liked the best friend, Mal. He was one of the best characters of the book. Though I think my favourite character is the Darkling. He was the most well constructed. Both “best” and “most” being relative terms, because the character development could have used a little work.
For example, I wasn’t very happy with our protagonist, Alina. She was way too naive, and quite silly. And she annoyed me a lot. Not to mention the whining and constant talk about how being pretty somehow made you (meaning other girls) better and stronger. I’d start to like her, only for her to do something stupid and I’d want to yell at her again. She did grow up a little by the end, though. Only a little.
My main concern with the novel had to do with the world building; the names of the categories based on abilities, to be specific. There were squallers, heart-renders, Corporalki, Materialki, etc. I have a decent enough idea now, but that’s because I’ve read five book now (this Trilogy and the Six of Crows Duology). When I’d only read this one book, I was so confused. It’s like the author just expected us to get the terminology immediately. I still don’t know it very well. And I know I’m not good at remembering stuff but, after five books, this can’t possibly be all on me. The world-building was rushed and insufficient.
The last concern I had with the book was that it was… predictable. I couldn’t guess everything but I had a general idea about how things would go and they did go that way.
Overall, this was a novel that could have been better. Hell, add in 50 more pages for some proper world-building and a finale, and this could’ve been a fantastic standalone. Still, I liked it. It had promise and I (at the time of reading) was very interested to see what would happen next. And since I’ve finished the series already, I can say that I’m very glad this wasn’t a standalone.
