This book felt really pointless to me, and I already dislike V.E. Schwab's writing style so this book was a recipe for disaster for me.

Wow I l loved this book! It was genre bending (fantasy / sci-fi / thriller) and was so easy to get into. All the characters are so flawed and there’s so many morally grey characters and situations that keep you on your toes and make you unsure who you should root for (the answer is probably no one but the characters are so murky that there’s no clear line for so much of the book.)

Really well written, but the characters are largely unlikeable, I didn’t find myself rooting for anyone so the tension dissipated.

The pacing at the beginning of the book was pretty slow. It seemed as though the author was trying to avoid writing just an origin story and instead telling that origin through flashbacks. But this led to every single thing that would have been mysterious, such as whether they will actually become ExtraOrdinaries or what certain character’s powers are, being easily spotted chapters before the big “reveal.” The ending was great, going from about the middle of the book onward, but the beginning was underwhelming.
