dark emotional tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I thought the concept was beautiful, but I found the plot too rushed. The description made me think there would be more
SpoilerMore rebellion and actually plotting by both Remi and Cadence
. I found Remi a little annoying, and Cadence was alright but I did not love her. The romance was cute but could have been more developed in my opinion. And the ending was even more rushed than the rest of it. 
It’s an interesting world and enjoyed reading about it, but the world and magic system were the best part.
