What readers are saying:
Very creative. I was able to immerse myself into the fictional time and place without difficulty. Author was able to make it relatable, but unique at the same time.
I enjoyed both the primary and secondary characters. I probably would have understood them more had I read the first book. So a bit more backstory would have been helpful.
Good use of imagery. Language appropriate to setting and characters. Good balance of showing and telling.
