I have to admit- I was a bit reluctant at first, and I think the biggest minus to this book is that the world building was very slow and unclear. Only in the middle of the book I felt that I understood the main character (Nastasia) enough to care what happened to her.
It took a while and when I finally did- it was sudden, and beautiful. I immediately fell in love with her- she has so many layers, which made it harder to know her, but made me love her deeply, and much more than usual book characters.
The plot was fast- paced, interesting and engrossing. the second half of the book, I just couldn't put it down. I literally read it whenever I could, even in the middle of a lesson at school! more than once in the middle of reading in class (which is why I hate publicly reading) I gasped dramatically, made strange frustrated noises, and had huge goofy oh-my-god-this-is-so-adorable smiles.
I can really say I loved this book, but I had to give it 3.5 stars because of the beginning and the slow character and world building.
Anyway, read it and let me know what YOU think!
