“Do you think, they’d ever let a woman study here?”


I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book felt like a third of a book. Like it was only the beginning of something – but not in the way a first installment of a series feels. It was just like someone had written a whole story, then chopped off two thirds of it. And that’s the reason why I felt this did not work for me. Even if it is a novella I still expect it to have a proper beginning, middle and end – and this one only had one of those three things.

The characters were interesting, the world was interesting, the writing was good – but the story felt chopped off. And then I can’t give it a higher rating.
