Meh, unlikable characters, jumpy plot and average at best
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2019
I nearly gave up on this one after reading the sample but gave it a go anyway. The beginning is jumpy and by that I mean it starts telling a bit of the story and just jumps forward without explaining what the girl actually did. That stops after a while but then you have to deal with this pretty unlikable heroine and all these other characters that are just as flawed.
I found the world building, or the way magic is used, to be pretty bland and stale. This has all been done before in other books that are way better. The familiars are the most interesting characters but the writing is so obvious that you know where this is all leading all the time. Might be ok as a book for bed time reading to the grandkids. Can't really recommend this one as I just could not like the characters or get interested in the story.
