I tried to like this work. And well, the writing was good enough to keep my attention and the world fascinating. But once again, the plot felt all over the place and the main character barely had a presence.
I like when main characters are prominent. Not just buried into the cast with little to distinguishing factor to tell them apart. I read this story with a very little idea who is the main character, and that is just putting this lightly.
While the plot could certainly be better, as the worldbuilding did interest me. Such as how gender roles are perceived, as well as the different mages.
Alas, this simply failed because of the characters and plot. Which is completely normal when it is with me, since there is so many books that I have dropped because of it.
I received an e-ARC in exchanged for an honest review.
