I kind of have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I really did love the story line. On the other, the writing was way too floaty for my taste. My tastes in writing are very direct. Tell me what the characters are doing, describe the setting but leave out all the flowery wording and pointless descriptions.
I enjoyed it enough that I will definitely finish the duology, I’m just not sure about reading anything else the author writes. Her character growth was fantastic, the story was smooth and very interesting. Honestly, I loved it. But I don’t think her writing is for me.
After reading the synopsis, I knew it was going to involve music as well, but I didn’t think it would be used in every single aspect of the book. It kind of got on my nerves after a while.
This rating is definitely closer to a 3.5 than a 4, but I would definitely recommend this if you like fantasy/mythology and you enjoy flowery writing.
Until next time,
