Apesar de ser um ótimo livro, a sua aparência EXTERNA não é das melhores, não sei se ele veio assim pq comprei na pré-venda, por 20 reais,mas pela estética do livro eu nunca pagaria mais de 40 reais, por melhor que fosse a história.
I was so excited for this book...until I actually started reading it past the sample. It took until 39% of the book before it actually picked up pace, before then it was a whole lot of sitting around in Nor's head, or talking about how pretty everyone and everything is...just very redundant, and then the instalove. Oh god, the instalove was just awful in this one. The author also could've done some great stuff subverting our expectations with Ceren, who I found myself liking way more than the heroines Insta love interest. And the last 8% was just bad. Especially for all of Nor's actions prior to. That's just my thoughts on the plot, and story. If you're a fan of Sarah J Maas, and you're hoping for something similiar to Feyre, and Rhys, or Aelin and Rowan, you're going to be disappointed. Unless she switches it up later in the series, but that seems really unlikely. The writing itself wasn't bad, but the imagery was lacking in areas. She also told the readers a lot rather than showed us, and that is a pet peeve of mine as it pulls from the story. Two stars because I'll probably read the other books just to see if she does end up switching it around, but I'm not going to be holding my breath for that, or eagerly counting down the days until the books are released.
I really liked the introduction to this world, there was character building, dynamic relationships, etc. However, when the setting changed it lost a lot of its detail and believability and felt rushed. The supposedly fiery leading lady become increasingly wishy-washy and spineless, feeling pity for the villian, and then being shocked, AGAIN, when he does something evil. The hero is likewise pretty useless, and the villian is one dimensional. There's a lot of wringing hands and declaring someone should do something, but no one ever DOES. By the end I was bored and uninvested. Its far from a bad book, infact a pretty typical YA read, but disappointing in the end.
Too much time spent on how horrible it is to be beautiful... doesn’t really ring true when the heroine at the same time loose her heart after 2 seconds of conversation to a very handsome man. Doesn’t manage to surprise at any time.
