Well I'm halfway up this book so far. But I'll definitely be going back to it as soon as I write the review. Starting from the things I loved about your book, I loved the plot, which is the most important thing in any story. It's quite unique and you've added a touch of mystery and adventure here that captivated me right from the start.

The writing style is good but I feel that it could do much better with some editing. I felt like some phrases could be said better than what you've written. Like, for example, it would sound better if you used 'told', 'answered', 'announced', 'commented' and such similar verbs instead of the verb 'said to' as used in multiple places.
Story wise, like the other readers have commented, I, too felt like there were some 'blank spaces' in the first few chapters. However, things started making sense as I reached further. I found some grammar errors regarding tense and sentence structuring and a few typos.
Another thing I want to add (forgive me if I'm coming out as too harsh but I just want to give an honest review) is maybe you might want to shiw the characters' emotions more openly. Personally, infect like there were a lot of dialogues between the characters but quite a few sentences indicating their internal thoughts and feelings. Those internal emotions can help the readers truly feel the characters and what they're going through.
Anyhow, I know that this story has a great potential with it's unique and intriguing storyline and captivating plot. So it's definitely a five star for me. I'm going to restart my reading from here and binge read it till finish. I hope my review helps!
Overall, kudos to the author! Keep writing! Best wishes!❣❣
