Originally posted at My Rating 3 and a half starsAs always, with this author, I adore the world building She does a fantastic job at making this magical universe a realistic and believable one My one problem with everything is the overall pacing, which I ll elaborate on later in this review.Maggi has had a crappy life so far at 22 years old and it just got so much weirder I like how sassy and stubborn she is She doesn t accept everything right away but she doesn t turn into a hysterical mess either Given time she adapts quite well to her new life Her relationship with Asher takes a long while to start but after that things take a turn with lots of impossible problems with no solutions.Asher and all his friends seemed like awesome guys I don t understand why they re so standoffish to most everyone in the school except the new girl and her friends, but I can let that slide He seems to like and be intrigued by Maggi just as much as she is by him They seem like a great couple.I ve been unofficially taking a break from YA for a few months I ve been having the worst luck when it comes to picking out books in the YA section So I liked how this book took something that would usually be in the 15 17 age bracket and put it into a new adult adult form I can t say this enough, the world building is amazing The map at the beginning of the book was awesome.The only problem I had with this book was the pacing of the story The first half was way too slow It took over 18 chapters for Maggi and Asher to have a full conversation The second half felt rushed for no apparent reason because some obscure things started connecting the dots out of thin air and then it ended If there was one thing this author would benefit in improving in future books it would be developing streamlined pacing for a book series.The end wasn t what I was expecting it to be I was on the edge of my seat waiting for a lot of things to possibly happen but what actually happened wasn t it I m interested in what happens next and maybe even getting a series of spin off books for Asher s group of supernaturals.My Favorite QuotesThis year there would be light, because I d had my damned share of darkness, Music moves everyone in different ways and it s magic even humans can access Sorry, I sometimes talk without thinking It s a problem I m not working on
