What I thought: 

Okay my summary is really vague, I’m sorry.. I have no idea how to describe this book.. 

But besides this book being hard to describe, it is really good! 

Since my move I was not really in a fantasy mood, so I kind off forced myself to read it, and now I’m back into fantasy! Yay! 

This book started of really interesting, and immediately pulled me into the story and I did not want to stop reading anymore 🙂 Also the ‘magic system’ is really interesting and original. (magic system is between quotations since I would not really call it magic but I don’t know what else to call it).  

There were quite a lot of predictable things, which I can understand if they annoy people, but I actually quite enjoyed it. Especially because sometimes I did not go the way I expected, and then it was quite a surprise! 

The only real down thing about the book is that the beginning of the second part was really confusing, and I had such a hard time getting through it. I had to reread quite some pages, to understand what really was going on. 

But since that was the only negative thing I have to say, I only took one star 🙂 


Advise for: 

Fantasy lovers, who do not mind often used plot twist.  

Someone who would like a new series, with original magic!
