β€œA 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.


  1. I’m actually in the process of reading this one right now and I’m struggling with it so hard. I love the concept of the world, but nothing else has hooked me like I was hoping for ☹

  2. Great review, Hamad! The struggles you had with this one, honestly reminded me a lot of how I felt about my first book by Rin – The Bone Witch. The pacing was inconsistent in that one, and I frankly found myself bored more often than not. But, I did love everything about the sequel, The Heart Forger when I read it earlier this year. I’ll definitely have to come into the Never Tilting World with only moderate expectations. Haha!
