Interesting premise but the whole story reads as one traumatic event after another with no catharsis in sight until the very end of the book. Not really what I want from my fantasy. 
 
Spoiler The only thing that kept me invested in the story was Sloane's friendships with the other recruits, especially Amiyah. So when they're pitted against each other my interest died along with her.

I have mixed feelings about this book. Overall, the writing was good. The world building and magic system was well thought out and I didn’t have a problem with it. What I did have a problem with was the plot and pacing. I didn’t really feel a connection to any of the characters until the last few chapters. The romance caught be by surprise, I wasn’t rooting for them at all. The plot twists were good, didn’t see it coming it saved the book for me.
