The story does pick up at the end and I really enjoy Pinmei as a heroine, but I found the story slow to start and I kept being confused by who some of the characters were. Everything comes together nicely in the end, for sure, and I love the focus on the importance of stories. I am also glad to know that immortality does not equal invincibility. However, all in all, I just found this okay
