I came into this book with little hopes or expectations. And 1 hours into it i was simply in love. The main character is somewhat "blank" as the author puts it (Thru a dialogue with another character) But everything else about this book is simply superb.
The concept is great. Truly great twist on the whole time travel business.
The plot is Okay. Very engaging.
The EXECUTION is like no other. Claire North takes this story and twists it in such a lovely way that the reader cant help but love it.
Also, the wordsmithing is beautiful. Sometimes i would hit the rewind 30 seconds bottom just to go thru certain phrases again, so well crafted they were!

All in all. Just get this book. Its great and now on my list of favorites!

Marvelous cast.
Witty and relatable character.
Great plot.

No lover of fantasy could possibly be bored with a Brandon Sanderson book as this one proves.

Fantasy for adolescents..

The magic system is cool.
The conflict is okay, although i am 4 hours into the book and only now does the plot begin to unfold. The main character doesnt really seem to have a major arch in the story, leaving her brother Miro to steal the show. That might change later on, if i manage to talk my self into finishing this book. It has being quite boring as the development draaaaaaaags. The dialogue is very cliche and there is to much focus on love stories. There are several sex scenes so far and a lot of heavy sexual tension and nudity, which is fine, but i dont see how it helps the story. Which brings me to my headline, its a book for adolescents telling the story of adolescents figuring out this whole new world of sexuality and their new urges and desires. I just so happens that these adolescents can do magic and use swords (no puns intended!)
The writer is a great wordsmith. I really enjoy his phrasing and structure, which gives a very poet spectrum to the narrative sometimes. But still, the story itself does not please this reader.
However, that is just MY opinion. I came here to leave a review because i always read these before i pick out book. Hope this helps.
