First of all, I love the way Marissa Meyer writes. She's one of my favorite authors. Her characters are always distinct and memorable. But...along with Winter, I have issues with this book. While Winter struggled with an improbable plot and to a lesser degree, pacing, the core of this book's issue was slow pacing. I found myself getting bored with the descriptions of artifacts. I wanted action in this book and it disappointed me how much of it was devoted to description. So I'd say the book was flawed but overall enjoyable. What I loved was: 1. The Characters. They come to life. Each different than the next. 2. That ending. Set up well, you can tell Meyer is a good writer and where she's going (hopefully, please don't be another Allegiant). I don't want to be too critical, because I enjoyed it, but it does have its struggles. I'm still not used to Audiobooks so I like the female actor doing female voices and the male actor doing male voices. A lot. The problem is when they do the opposite gender. It distracts me by how fake they sound. I don't know if that's common in Audiobooks or not, so I'm not going to knock the book for it. Overall, I would recommend, but definitely the second book in a series. I hope it ends well, or else I'd say this story could've been told in two books.
