    "Short but interesting"

    Shorter than I expected, but still an interesting plot. Wishing for another in the series!

    "Meh"

    Listen to the series in the series order, not the publication order. This book is worth a listen because it finished the story, but as her first published, it lacks the polish of the other three.

    Story
    "Great imagination, thin plot."

    The story was interesting even if it was a little thin. I struggle to say anything that's not complimentary of the queen, Ms. Butler so I'll just say it was good and not great.

    There's great imagination in the premise & the story shows a lot of potential for a hook-you kind of series. I'm looking forward to reading the other books & exploring this world.
