Just meh

The idea of the story was really great, and the whole plot is super engaging, but the story fell short and ended up being really boring to me. I completely lost interest and had to push to finish it. I’m bummed because it could have been great!

Overwrought and breathy

Not bad, but the constant overwrought and breathy tones of the wild wind plastering your hair against your tingling body while you draw on power you didn't even know your budding intellect possessed, surrounded by forces intent on your complete and utter subjugation...well...it gets a bit much. 12 year old girls should love it.

Interesting book

There were times where I was concerned the book would be darker than I would have liked but it balanced out and became more than I was anticipating. Original twists on often seen themes that will leave this book standing out in your memory.
