However, I felt that the ending was rushed and the character development just wasn't up to par with what this story had the promise to be. I stayed up late reading and got up early to read, but when I turned that last page, I felt disappointed. I get that the main character is supposed to be the antagonist to another, but I felt like once she started focusing just on leveling up her own abilities and had few actual encounters with the "protagonist" that the story lost its footing. She stopped fighting for herself actively and just focused on gathering power. Everything felt rushed to reach that climax. 40 years pass in a chapter (when the characters live for thousands, this isn't quite the same as in the real world) and this felt like just a way to get to the end. Several of the side-characters were vastly underutilized and underdeveloped. I kind of wish this book had been in third person instead of first, so we could have followed the journey of others. I know the first person makes it far easier to sympathize with Shann, which is important since she's an antihero, but... I would have liked more on the others.
The main character Shann was quite likeable, even when she made decisions that were selfish. She even started caring about this "book world" as much as her previous life, but then in the end, it felt like she just disregarded it. She doesn't act logically about solving the problem of her death as there seemed to be a lot of obvious paths that weren't even explored in the story. I would be fine with her still making the wrong choices and doing evil things if I felt they were guided by better intentions. This story had so much potential.
So, in the end, I'm probably going to buy the next book. Why? Well, I did love so much of this story and it sounds like the blurbs for the others may point to some of the development I was hoping for for this book. I'm hoping that the full arc will redeem this part of the story. I may be wrong, but I'm hoping since there are some reviews that indicate it gets better from here.
I especially love the ending, it is unexpected in an understandable way, like many other instances throughout the novel where you don't see things coming until it unfolded. Looking forward to reading the next book.
