The plot of the book was very, very slow-paced and although the writing was simply gorgeous there were lots of things that happened that just felt a bit unnecessary and could have easily been missed out without affecting the understanding of the story and characters.

Also, many parts of the book were really confusing and even when I reread the same bit again and again I still had no idea what was going on! The magic was barely explained and the ending happened so quickly I barely understood what was happening.

I appreciated that the main character, Fatima, was a young woman who struggled and then persevered and became fierce and someone who take her life in her own hands. But that was about all I really came to like. I'm sure this is the perfect book for someone out there, it just wasn't the perfect book for me.
