I feel like I would have LOVED this book when I was 13 As a fair warning not a lot ie nothing is explained or described The author expects you to implicitly understand the layouts of buildings and magic dealings without any explanation The main character is imperfect and that is likable but that is pretty much the only likable aspect of her personality She is rude impatient whiny and ignorant of everything around her Every other character treats her with kindness and respect OK maybe not EVERYONE but most and she is frustratingly stupid back at them over and over againThe world also relies on nonhuman creatures and expects you to just happily stay in ignorance like the protagonist of what their abilities are and what they look like It wasn't until the END of the book that I figured out that the Aeriens or however you spell it weren't gryphons but angels Huh Okay So you have cat people lizard people elves and angels Right The author barely gives you ANY tidbits about what should be FASCINATING races and again expects you to fill in the blanks or not careThis book really vaguebooks the entire story through I'M VERY UPSET the book shouts You say oh no What is wrong and it responds I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT ITEven the author's EXPLANATIONS of the story don't make sense They consist of basically saying She now understood She knew what she had to do Gee thanks for keeping your reader in the loop The IDEA of the plot supernatural murders with nonhuman characters oh YES and the races and the world are interesting But it's written like terrible fanfic The author expects you to already know the characters world and races so she doesn't bother describing it Unfortunately it's not fanfic It's a published novel Not planning on pursuing the rest of this YA series
