Okay, so, positive feelings first; the characters, the world, the magic – just a lot of awesome things that were written so well and made me love this book as much as I loved the first book. The audio book recording of this is also really nice because they have different people reading the different POVs – and since this book has three POVs there were three readers and they all did a really good job with their characters.

But I did not enjoy this book as much as the first one.

Why? Because I found this quite slow. For more than half of the book the POV that I kind of only looked forward to listening to was Helene’s, because at least she saw some action. It picked up in the second half and got a lot more interesting, but then the ending was just meh. It felt almost like the author had started to write this as a duology but then, halfway through wrapping this up, decided that there would be more books, so she had to leave some loose ends.

I am looking forward to continuing the story mainly because of Helene’s storyline, but Laia and Elias’ has to improve in the next installment.
