So, I was really excited to pick up this book because I only heard good things about it (and still do!). I haven’t read her other trilogy yet but I’m looking forward to do so!
I don’t want to say too much about the characters because that would spoil far too much!
But let me tell you, each and every character in this book has a function and it doesn’t seem like someone is unnecessary, which I really appreciated!
I could distinguish between each person and every person has it’s own story that they tell, which I think is really nice and also gives the story and the whole “character sytem” more depth.
Such badass characters that you would enjoy reading about and it’s also very funny sometimes because they’re all having something insane and ironic about them.
At first it wasn’t that easy to get into the book because I needed some time to get into the whole fantasy system but afterwards I had no problems at all!
I could immerse into the story and forget everything else, i was just magic!
And those plottwist OMG! 😀 Really mean, but also very addictive!
If you like cliffhanger, you’re going to enjoy this book. Most of the time plottwists and cliffhanger are very predictable for me but this book really caught me off guard at some points 😀
I can’t complain about Leigh Bardugo’s writing at all! She has such a wonderdul writing and she knows how to create certain atmospheres!
Also, I coould imagine each and every character,place or house but still, I wouldn’t recognize if she describes something, it’s just magical! 🙂
