I was not sure what this book was really going to be about but it was interesting at the start but I could tell from the listing of all the different areas and skill that it might get confusing along the way but really it was not but the world building seemed to take up too much and got a bit boring around the middle but once the action started it was very addicting.
First we have to get to the part where Cuinn and Blaize don’t kind of hate each other a bit . There was a bit of insta-love but not anything overwhelming but it was there so some of the romance is skipped over a bit.
The action and the secondary bad guy/girl were not that scary but our heroine had a bad case of TSTL but at least she would own up to it after she had screwed things up. The romance angle was really done lightly and the action was more of the story other than the world building and the introduction of some secondary characters that future books will revolve around.
All things considered I was not that impressed with the book as a whole until we got to around the last 25% when it got a lot more interesting and the action picked up and some real emotion was evident. I give it 4 Stars but it was a near thing but I did enjoy the ending and of course we don’t know who the Big Bad is but looked like a hint makes me curious but I doubt we will find out for several more books. There are 6 couples laid out in the “prophesy” that this series will revolve around and this was couple 1.
