Hi everyone, I'm a 23 year old fangirl from le Canada. I'm just transferring from GR and I blog reviews on incompletetales.tumblr.com. I enjoy vast genres and am indeed a Hufflepuff, so don't be afraid to say hello :)
A very intriguing start to a fantasy series, I found myself engrossed with Gen’s character. I absolutely loved reading from his perspective and his playfulness was refreshing from other angsty narratives in other YA stories. I just wish we had more of a view of his surroundings since we get to know the other characters quite slowly which meant getting interested in other characters took a relatively long time.
A tie between 3-4 stars simply because the middle parts got a bit tedious, and not a lot of female characters until the end of the story. I feel we don’t really regret certain character’s deaths because they felt very detached and we hardly got to know them.
I’d probably recommend it to people looking for a quick fantasy story, a bit on the light-hearted side.
I look forward to reading more in this series from Megan Turner (Everyone says the next few books are much better)!
