Teenaged. Clinomaniac. Caffeine Addicted. Fangirl. Bibliomaniac. Introverted.
I'm a bit on the fence about this one. On the one side, there's great world-building, with appendixes and maps and monsters and wicked-cool occupations with some amazing thought put into it. On the other side, there's about the blandest characters I've ever seen. Potential is definitely there but it's not quite showing its colours yet. Europe is probably my favorite character, simply because she's kinda a badass, but even she needed more. And backstory, oh my gosh!
So it was actually a bit of a chore to get through. I didn't really care one way or another about Rossamünd and it was slow-moving to boot. But I had to finish it and once I settled in, it started moving along a little quicker. Or at least it seemed that way.
Here's to hoping the characters live up to their amazing world in the rest of the series!
