I hope that wasn’t too disappointing of a statement because as predictable as I found this story I was also intrigued by it. An entire world was crafted alongside the realm that we as humans live in, allowing for a more in depth plot.
I did enjoy the whole evil step mom queen and over bearing father aspect to the book. It was completely unexpected to have her be accepted in to the fairy world as well as be discovered to be powerful. I was not a huge fan of Meg, she was just mehhhh for me. I did like her way of being, if that makes sense, she was a very selfless character, always putting others in front of herself. She was willing to put those she loved above herself and that is a quality that I liked in her character but I just didn’t love her.
I felt that there was too much of summary, too many other species that honestly do not matter. The reader was just bogged down with facts about the realm that were so irrelevant in the first 80% of the book that it was hard to enjoy it.
The story really picked up for me when Ash entered because who doesn’t like a hot ice Fairy?! I think that he is what makes the story interesting (finally). There is another obvious love triangle which I find just redundant.
Anyway, I didn’t dislike this book enough not to try the next one (which I already started reading) I just found this was too realm building based, so I hope the next one is different.
