I am very torn about this book. It was a very fast pace read but the story did just not wow me. I did enjoy the story but the main character was just not my favorite character and she annoyed me throughout the novel. The book was also a bit too predictable for me and I was not shocked by any of the events of the book. It reminded me a lot of the selection series by Cass and I had similar issues with that book as well. The author is such a good fantsay writer and I keep hopping for some more fantsay elements to be included or even any. It needed a pop and the story just did not have that for me. This book was in theory a stand alone and the other books will follow the other jewels and I hope I am more invested in their stories then I was with this character.
