Pretty slow paced - not my type of book
Reviewed in Canada on February 7, 2022
This book was very slow. There were hints at this being a wider world with deeper mystery and magic, but none of those hints really came to fruition - maybe they do in the sequels, but I'm not sticking around to find out. The pacing was slow and never quick and I did not become invested in any of the characters. They all seemed fairly shallow without any development throughout the story. For the last 1/3 of the book, I was struggling to get to the end and was happy when the last 20% was a sample chapter from another book so I could stop reading it and move on to something else.
