so so

To be honest, I downloaded the first book in this series as something to try to get into whilst i wait for the next book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas of which i enjoyed to come out, and the synopsis of first book of this series kinda felt like a similar theme.. strong female character battling a bigger political issue, lives at stake, promises of romance blossoming, all that, but i was a little disappointed that it just didn't seem written very strongly. But it does sometimes take me a book or two to get into a series so i persevered on with this book.

I don't know, the story is just missing a little bit of something for me, it seems a bit like it was a draft or two short before being published and should have been revised and refined a little more before the final cut. I feel like massive story potential has been a little wasted by too little effort on the technical writing side as nothing is descriptive enough for me to create any interesting visuals in my head as i listen. Also not a mega fan of the 1st person thing. It makes me not engage with the other characters around as much because everything about them has to be said as the opinion of the character talking.

Also, I got to this book and they have swapped the narrator of the first book to the same narrator as the Throne of Glass series! Part of me enjoyed that series so much because of such a skilled narrator in engaging the audience and the voices but now all the characters are merging in my head listening to the same voices and tones, especially as some of the characters even have the same names - i do think that each major book series should have one defining narrator and stick to it rather than swapping them about, and not let the same narrator narrate very similar storylines in which readers that like that theme will possibly listen to both. It just becomes confusing and makes the experience less enjoyable having to get used to a different narrator every book.
