Hey there! I try to be completely honest with reviews, so here it goes.
Don’t be weirded out by the first chapter. I know it’s a bit out there, but it makes so much more sense later.
Overall the book was really good. This isn’t your typical fantasy book. I loved the fresh view on magic and its cost, very thought provoking and deep.
This book is interesting, it’s borderline laugh out loud funny at times but also deals with real topics and issues. Not what you would expect from something like this.
It is well written and definitely worth reading if you are into any kind of fantasy 🙂
The characters are great, Jason is the best! HE IS SO FUNNY!
Read the book, it’s worth it. The second book is really good too, but prepare to cry 😭😭😭😭😭
Anyway, read the book!
