I felt that the characters were still well developed and the writing is really good. The world building the author does is amazing.However, I felt like 80% of this book is just filler. The book is so slow in pacing and it takes so long to get to the final battle scene, which is then a disappointment. I also felt very angry and upset about how Lia turned out in this book. The book also didn’t have a real end. It just kind of ended without a resolution.Verdict: I say to read this series, just to see if this fits you.
