  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I was expecting the plot to take a pattern similar to the hunger games, with the races taking place around the mid point. As instead the race only happens at the end, I felt like the plot dragged a bit. But in the end I also feel like the slow village life and romance made for proper worldbuilding and atmosphere setting, so if you’re into that this may be the book for you.
