I got sucked into this book right from the start. There was no preamble, and the story got moving from page one, which I enjoyed. From there, we got to know many of the central characters and could see the power dynamics that would take place throughout the book. As the book progressed, we met the rest of the main characters and many other secondary characters. The author does a great job of giving life to the secondary characters just as well as the leading group.
There were times that I felt like I was watching a movie instead of simply reading a book as I was transported into a different world. There was enough description to visualize each setting without going overboard. I became invested in the quest taking place, and with each turn of events, I wanted to know more.
The build-up was immense in the final chapters (don’t worry, no real spoilers), and I couldn’t put the book down. Even though there was strategically placed foreshadowing when the twist happened, it was still had to take. The only downside I had while reading the book was the last page – ‘To be continued.’ I wanted to know what happens next, but I will need to impatiently wait until the next book is released.
