It’s kind of unfortunate that this book I’ve been looking forward to reading, and had expected good things from, is letting me down a bit. I’m nearly done, but about halfway through I realized the only character I liked was Clara. She’s a friend who pops up occasionally, so I’m a bit out of luck.
The two MCs and their primary sidekicks are all their own kinds of annoying. Fickle, painfully naive, cruel, despicable… it’s hard to really root for anyone here. Maybe Zareena. We’ll see where this one ends up in the end, but I feel like this is trending towards “meh.”
