"4.5<br/>First of all, lemme just say that the cover is so well done!! So gorgeous!<br/><br/>The story was pretty full of cliches. I found them enjoyable most likely because of the events that they created. This is about a girl (apprentice librarian) who is discovering who she really is and how she fits into the world. I think it was fairly well paced, maybe a little slow. <br/><br/>The characters were cool. They each had a lot of character development which I totally appreciated. <br/>-Vhalla is your typical female YA fantasy character. At first I couldn't stand her, but as the story progressed, I learned that she's kinda awesome. <br/>-Prince Aldrik is your typical bad boy/misunderstood soul. He's described by many characters in the book to have a 'silver tongue' which I could see sometimes. <br/>-the rest, although cool, didn't really show up and play a HUGE part like these two did. <br/><br/>The writing was decent. It did its job. It isn't my favorite but it flowed (mostly) so it was good. There were spots where I honestly was so confused. Maybe four spots. They just didn't provide enough information for me to realize what was going on. <br/><br/>The cliffhanger at the end is brutal. Cannot wait until book 2!"
"😭🥰 I am ENTHRALLED WITH THE SERIES"
"this was so freaking good. i LOVE aldrik. one of my new favorite love interests in any book ever omg. great romance. although i wish the MC was a little older to avoid it being slightly creepy. that is my one and only complaint. besides that, the book is like everything i look for in a fantasy romance."
"I think this could have used quite a bit more world building. I was happily reading a long but a few things crept up. Why did everyone hate sorcerers? The Crown Prince was a sorcerer, he fought on the front lines of the war. The Prince has fire. Why was everyone more scared of a girl who could wield air? What was it about people who could control air that made them much more dangerous than those who could control water or fire? <spoiler>Why send an untrained girl to the front lines? Even if it was to die? Why not give her the training to make sure the tides turn and the North falls? Why just kill her off? That is one lousy senate if they can't even bare to have her live to give them the success they've been working towards.</spoiler><br/><br/>The secrecy over why air was dangerous didn't bother me much, since there hasn't been a windwalker in 140 some odd years. It would be natural for that to be a mystery as texts were confiscated. Everything else was left unanswered. Why were the sorcerers hated? What made them isolate themselves in the Tower? Why weren't they prized since they had the power to make everyone else bend to their will or fear being burned or drowned?<br/><br/>There is a part of me that wants to know what happens in the rest of the series, but there is a bigger part of me that was too frustrated with too much to make purchasing the next book a risk. What happens if my questions never find answers? There seems to be a pile of plot holes and no guarantees that the next book will start to plug some of them up."
