⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5
Waaaaay too much boring backstory in the first few chapters... doesn't really get going until chapter 12 which is 56 pages of boredom.
There could be a lot more speech (or at least thoughts) by the main character to explain the things that are just boring text right now. It's a reasonable book so far, but there is already a lot that can be improved which is on the verge of another star being knocked off, but I'm in a reasonable mood this afternoon so it's at 3.5 stars instead of 3 right now ;-)
Chapter 14 is a lot better, so I'm gonna promote it back to the 4 stars again. Chapter 15 was good too... the author is really getting into her story now, which is great.
I'm really enjoying the novel now... I've read ten chapters without stopping to review any of them 🤣 Still a solid 4 stars... would have been the full 5 if it hadn't been for the first few chapters!
What a great ending! If you can forgive the first few chapters this is a great read when the author gets into her stride. A solid 4 stars before I head to bed.
