I am honestly not sure what I read, haha. I probably should have ended up DNFing but I wanted to see what I would be missing if I did. Unfortunately it didn’t get better for me.
The book is told from two point-of-views. One comes from Quell Marionne and she is the daughter of a Headmistress in some magical order. I wouldn’t say I ever connected with her or her story. She felt immature for her age and I wasn’t sure why she would make certain decisions. The other point-of-view, which is the first one, pulls you into the story but doesn’t give you much to go on after. Everything moves so quickly with little-to-no context.
I wish there would have been more about the world-building and the magic. I didn’t understand a lot when it came to both of these and still don’t get it after finishing the book. The book is on the longer side and so there was definitely room for better explanations. On that note though, I feel like the book could have been shortened as well. There were some lulls and some parts of the plot that didn’t really add to the story overall.
Overall, it was okay. I just don’t have much to say about this one. I didn’t connect with it in any way and because of that I have already forgot a lot of what happened.
