There were parts of this book that I loved, but many parts that I felt missed the mark. A lot went on and I wonder how much of it was really important. I understand there are going to be sequels, but it the novel felt bogged down with information and somewhat all over the place.
However, I loved the setting and she did a great job with characterization. Evie is one of those characters who you sort of love despite her many flaws. I will most likely read the next book.
