I may be in a reading slump, or maybe I was that underwhelmed.
This story was nothing new in the fantasy YA world. I found it took me til about half-way through the book before I was more intrigued and encouraged to finish the book. The plot thickened and characters a little more mad that gave some different sides to the book.
The characters were one-dimensional. I often found myself trying to figure out which POV (of the two) I was reading because the narrations sounded the same. They lacked depth.
Without going on too much more because at this point I’m going to get on a soap box, there was no language, only a few kisses and some violence.
I feel my real issue is that the book is for a younger crowd, I think pre-teen and teens would enjoy this book and find it more deep than I did.
