I absolutely enjoyed diving into this read! I’m so happy I set time aside to sink into the novel, it was most definitely worth the wait!
Read the story now
I really enjoyed the plot pacing for the novel, it was comfortable enough to get a feel of all the characters being introduced along with a small glimpse into their back stories! We, the readers, got an understanding of who the main character is as an individual, a sense into her personality and thought process. Along with a back story to both the main character and those important to her in her life. It was very clear and easy to absorb.
When I tell you the transition into the magic within this world was unexpected and a true joy to witness, it’s because it was! I was taken aback for a moment when Kathryn released her ability in one of the first chapters, not telling you exactly what cause ~ well ~ spoilers! But the introduction to the magic and the set rules for said magic was absolutely perfect! We got another glimpse into the past, a perfect way to explain without it being information dumping! Excellent work in that respect.
Overall, I really enjoyed this read! It was such a joy to sink into. The characters we very real and believable, and the magical world was introduced wonderfully. The author has a distinct and beautiful writing style, very oriented around detail, thus bringing these characters to life with her attention to detail.
