I really couldn’t get into the book for at least quite some time. And again, I just couldn’t connect with any of the characters.
I didn’t like any character apart from Trynne. And that I really did not care about any of them. They weren’t particularly very interesting at all, and they just lacked spark with me.
But the world was indeed interesting, and I was rather intrigued with it. Since it appeared to be like plenty of epic fantasies but it was about kingdoms, and I’m always a sucker for those as long they have complex politics. Which they somewhat do, but it is just way too shallow to draw my interest.
It was readable, since I really liked Trynne and her struggles which I found to be quite real. She was the only character whom I really connected to, and all the others including the villains just faded.
I guess it’s another case of it’s not you, it’s me.
