Very political and was very slow. Took me forever to get into it. The writing was good, but political books aren't for me.

I had some issues with the pacing and wish the magic system was clearer but overall I really enjoyed this! Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Elite. I will say, the first half had me interested and curious, but not necessarily obsessed.

That second half tho?? Couldn't tear myself away. In fact, I finished the second half in one night.

Soooo yeah. Highly recommend.

DNF. i’ve read over 50% but I cannot get into it. I had really high expectations and it did not live up to them. The lore is absolutely incredible but in 250 pages basically nothing has happened. Alas i couldn’t finish it.
