โ€œWhat an unequaled gift for disaster you have.โ€

๐ŸŒŸ After a bad experience with Spinning Silver, I decided to give the author yet another chance and I even put SS on hold to take the final decision which I took after finishing this: Naomi Novik’s writing style is just not for me.

๐ŸŒŸ I feel like you won’t know until you try, and it won’t take long according to my experience with those 2 books, after a few chapters you would either be in love or you will feel that it is a recipe for disaster as the above quote says!

๐ŸŒŸ The beginning of this book was actually good and I thought that I am glad I am giving her another chance! A few chapter ahead and I was struggling to move on…

Ahmed, who was doing a BR with me, gave up after 2 chapters because he thought it was so boring and slow which I agree with.

๐ŸŒŸ The characters were also not to my liking, Agnieszka is the typical YA “Special Gurl” that turns suddenly from zero to hero and “The Dragon” is not a dragon and the rest is history. The romance did not work for me too.

๐ŸŒŸ The synopsis was good, but the pacing did not help at all, the over descriptions were killing me! I looked up a summary after finishing this book and it was a good one but short which confirmed that not much happens in this dense book and it could have been like 50% smaller!!

๐ŸŒŸ Summary: I gave this book 2 stars although I didn’t like most of it, but there were a few moments were it would capture my attention and then lose me with the overzealous writing. The plot was OK but other than that it was just not for me. I am sorry Naomi, but I am glad you have many fans which I am not one of!

  1. Yup, I feel like “what’s wrong with me”
    I always give each author 2 chances before taking a major decision. I learned that by reading Agatha Christie’s books. the first one I read was bad, the second and third are on my fav list!
