I thought the story was pretty interesting. It was so exciting and fun but the writing was pretty difficult to get through. The sentence structuring was really rough and didn't seem all that polished. Granted, it was an arc but the writing was distractingly bad in my opinion. I think the hype for the book is a little more than what it's worth but at the same time I'm not the biggest fantasy fan out there. I'm super picky about it so I wasn't he targeted audience. I would recommend reading it if you are really interested in the plot line because I truly believe some of the distracting sentence structuring will get fixed in editing or that the overall story will pull you through and it will still be enjoyable.
