Im so tired of being promised an awesome fantasy book, with a strong female and male lead ....they get trained all their lives and should be able to handle any situation.....but no....when the danger finally come about in the book...all of a sudden they turn into sobbing, weak messes who need someone else to save them...or they get out with dumb luck......**sigh** 😑😧..... The world building in this book is really good and the traits of all the races are fantastic, which is the only redeaming feature in this book for me...the characters wernt well rounded enough to live up to what they were meant to be and didnt even get stronger or grow in any way by the end of the book.....which really discourages me from bothering to pick up the next one.
I really wanted to like this book, which is why i pushed to finish it...thinking it might get better and the heroin will stop crying for 2 seconds and actually live up to whatbshe keeps saying...that crying is weakness and you should never give up until victory blah,blah, blah.....but no!...someone came to save her in the end when she was supposed to get herself out.....not cool
Any book that I don't want to put down is worth atleast 4 stars :) Loved the story. Nicely written, the only reason I didn't give it 5☆ is because I'm super picky when it comes to spelling etc. and expect a finished product to be near on flawless in that regard.
This was beyond anything I could've hoped for in a favorite type of book, the particular type you search for desperately and rarely get. The journey and adventure kept me entertained, as did the complicated romance amongst all the characters. Then there's the characters themselves and the secret roles they all play in the grander scheme of things. I loved the way it was written, hated the way it switched off to different povs as soon as I was hooked to one story, and felt absolutely devastated at the end. I'd complain about unfinished business but it is an epic fantasy novel, so I can only blame myself for thinking everything wouldn't leave me completely heartbroken and nearly emotionally traumatized!
I've found another author to stalk- I mean read from -and this is an absolute must read for fantasy lovers with romance and intense details with the graphics.
