The first half of the book was painfully slow… I know why it was slow, it was because of the world building and the preparation to understand the world before we get to the real plot but I almost dnf'd it! Buuut the other half of the book straight up convinced me. We finally had the characters there and I cared for them. That half was full of action, emotion and character. The plot twist was amazing and I just know the next book will hurt me!
