I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads program.I have mixed feelings about this book First I m not sure how to classify it Science fiction There is a weird mix of made up kingdoms, historical customs, and modern language and convenience The story itself is intriguing, bit slow to capture my attention Once I became fully interested and invested in the story it ended, leaving me to either buy the next installment or be left in wonder. Legalese I won a copy of this book via Goodreads.I found this story to be okay There are a lot of plot holes but I have faith they will be filled in the next book.The writing if good The descriptive could use a bit sprucing up The characters almost feel one dimensional until you read deeper in to the story This book just didn t grab me or whole my full attention. DisappointedThis is a cliffhanger I do wish authors would earn readers in the synopsis I am truly disappointed to have read the book only to be left unfullfilled.
