This was a fun and intriguing introduction to a new series about a girl who discovers she has magical powers, and gets transported to a new world which needs her help. If that sounds like something you enjoy I think this may be for you.
I liked the magic system, and the world building was great! I also really enjoyed how realistic this was, particularly concerning Jette (heroine). Her reactions and thoughts are exactly what I would be thinking if I found out about magic and new worlds.
While initially I really liked and appreciated Jette’s honest reactions, at times it felt repetitive. For example, she’s new to the world of magic but has travelled through a portal, seen magic with her own eyes and yet still says things like “I’m not sure I believe you/in magic”. I get she has doubts, and part of her being so real and relatable was great, but it just got a little too much for me in the later half of the book. That being said, other characters acknowledge this and are irritated by it so I’m hoping for some character growth in the next book.
With regard to the writing, for the most part it was great. My only issue was that some of the sentences seemed to be missing a word in front of it. Mostly this is for Jette’s inner monologue but I found my brain was adding the words at times because it didn’t really make sense or flow.
“Hell, I wasn’t even sure if I was okay. Felt like the bones in my shoulder and back were shattered into a thousand pieces.” - IT felt like, makes more sense to me in this case.
Overall, I enjoyed this and I’m interested to see where this goes.
