I lost interest in this by page 400. I guess it was just written in a way that was far too long and at the same time lacked any charming narrator to make this work.
Nona was intriguing, but that was about it. I didn’t care for her, as she didn’t really have any interesting personality or even quirks that made me like her remotely. She was okay, but I didn’t find her memorable at all.
As for the world, which is well developed and unique. I just did not get sucked into it. Well developed, but doesn’t mean that I will be immersed. Something was just lacking.
I guess I just prefer books with a certain amount of wit added into the story rather than just purely fights, passing narration, or growth. Those are what makes me remember a book, and this certainly doesn’t.
Sad to say, this just wasn’t for me but perhaps it is for you.
