Going into this book I was fully prepared for it to be a very slow paced story that focuses on the political aspects than the fantasy elements due to some of the reviews I've stumbled upon While at first I thought I was going to be bored it actually managed to keep me entertained The story wasn't too bad and while I think the characters could've used a bit depth I didn't mind themOne gripe I have is that Aurora herself can be very passive most of the time There were many moments where I was tempted to light a fire under her ass Wake her up so to speak Har dee har Me maek an j0ke lawlz Throughout a huge chunk of the book she's pretty much like a puppet that's constantly getting her strings pulled by multitudes of people For someone who clearly didn't want to be controlled she kept letting herself be controlled from my observation So that was pretty frustrating for me Granted the author didn't totally make her lack a backbone There are a few moments where she grows some girl balls and takes action stands up for herself But they were just that few I needed And regarding the love interests as far as I can tell there are three possible choices Yeah a love suare for once That's different not in a good way mind you I guess you could argue that one of them isn't supposed to be a love interest but I don't know There's a lot of moments in this book that make me think otherwise There's the asshole the sweet one and the one in between that has both ualities For those of you who have read the book I'm pretty sure you can match all those traits with their names respectively I kinda didn't really care for any of them though to be totally honestOverall I guess I'm a bit disappointed at how much this book screams HA I BET YOU THOUGHT I WAS A STANDALONE BUT NOPE I'M TOTES THE FIRST BOOK OF A SERIES TROLOLOLOLOL BTW HERE'S A CLIFFHANGER BYE with how little plot development happened in it I still don't know if I'd pick up the seuel when it comes out Not that I don't wanna read it I just somehow doubt that this book would leave much of an impression on me in the future
