Incredibly well performed
- Lyndsey T.
Flawless fantasy heist
This was one of my favourite books that I have listened to in a while. I bought after reading a few review on a whim, and found that it was engaging, fun and original.
It is hard to pick one as they are all so well developed and have such complex motivation. I loved the wraith and nina, but they were all great
The story switches perspectives, although it is narrated in 3rd person, and each character has a different narrator, giving the performance texture. This also helps to make it easier to follow and remember who you're listening to! In other books, I have found that this technique can be gimmicky, but it adds to the story and enables the author to reveal and hide different aspects of the story well, building suspense and adding depth.
I don't know... the plot is too unique and interesting to be summarised in one line.
The narrative is great, the plot is original and the characters are full. The author has not had to resort to using old tropes and, although some of the romance involved is a bit unoriginal, it added to rather than detracted from the story as a whole. I really enjoyed this book!
