*I was sent an e-arc of this book in exchange for my honest review*

I really wanted to like this book. I really truly did. It just wasn't happening for me. I was so excited when I got the notification from Netgalley that I was going to be able to read it but I was very disappointed. I DNF'ed this book at about 40% because I had no desire to read it and I had other things to read.

I thought that a lot of things happened too easily or quickly. The pacing felt wrong, the characters felt flat, and I just didn't care at all about what happened. I wish that I could say that I connected to this story, but I didn't. There were plenty of info dumps for things I didn't really need to know but there wasn't enough explanation for things that needed it.

Maybe this is a book that a lot of other people love, but I could not get past these things and enjoy it at all. That's really all I can say on this book: I just didn't enjoy it at all.


Thanks for reading! I'll catch you guys next time!
