“A demoness is what men call a goddess they cannot control.”
🌟 I have always wanted to read something by this author and when I saw this awesome cover on Edelweiss (Thanks for them for providing an ARC in exchange of an honest review) I did not think twice and requested it. I have been reading less YA recently and changing into adult fantasy and maybe I am not being fair to this book because of that.
🌟 I decided to give this a chance as I thought it was a standalone but obviously it is a part of a series. That being said, this is not a bad book, I gave it a good rating which is 3 stars. but in a world full of good books, I am looking for something very good, extraordinary, something that stands out between all those books out there.
🌟 The Never Tilting world was good in all aspects but I felt it could have been better, some of the potential was lost somehow. The writing was good but I was bored every now and then.
🌟 The characters were okay, I would have preferred 2 instead of 4 POVs, I rooted for 2 of them and did not care about the other two. Their voices were not the same but it was not so distinctive either. I always say that writing multiple POV is very hard and it could make or break the book. In this case, it was more of the later for me!
🌟 The world building was unique and I liked the magic system but I also wanted more. I think there will be more in the next book but I won’t probably continue this!
The pacing was inconsistent, I felt it was slow sometimes and fast sometimes. The plot was kind of predictable for me.
🌟 Summary: I think The Never Tilting World was a good book that could have done better. I may have picked it with different expectations so you can take this review with a grain of salt! I just thought that all the elements of the story were constricted and had more potential.
