While I can certainly say I liked some aspects of this book, the overall story fell flat with me. The women in this story enjoy far more autonomy than most other stories in this genre show, the follow through of this book's plot just didn't unravel well. The characters were introduced well, the world the author created seems interesting but the plot of the story and certain aspects of the writing just made it seem like a bit of a slough. I definitely wanted to like it more than I did. I'm still glad that I got a copy of it though. The author definitely shows promise in the writing. I've never read anything by E.K. Johnston before but I'll definitely read more of her work in the future. Thank you for the opportunity.
