The first half of the book, I despised her seemingly immature personality (guess there are two kinds of 16-year-olds) and sassy way she acted. What I also didn't care for was the way she meekly- and even obediently -did things for the people she was suspicious of, and yet on the other hand challenged them to no end. She was almost like a dog with all bark and no bite. That, my darling, is extremely frustrating to me as a reader.
Johai was great mostly because he annoyed the hell out of her, which again, only reminds me of how many times she assumed so many things without proper weight to give them any merit. Her beliefs were very fickle and even when things were a bit obvious, she refused to believe them because of pride or fear of being hurt. You've no idea how many times I shouted at her to grow a pair and deal with the title she kept reminding everyone she was due. Yeah, DUE.
Another character I liked was Adair because of how great he was. That's all I will say. The other characters were alright but because of my state of annoyance, I couldn't very well enjoy them, let alone remember their names and motivations.
So to sum this up, the good points: Jo; Adair; any other murderer and disgusting character in this book; the details; the plot twists; the setting.
And for the bad parts: the main character whose name I won't bother straining to remember; the lengthy plot that never seemed to end; the predictability of the second half of the book.
I'm giving this three stars because I do see that this author has a style of writing details and a imagination of worlds that I do love, and it's only because of that, that I'd bother to read the second book and recommend this. I wouldn't recommend this book if you really hate annoying young characters because frankly, this book could do without irrational raters. Otherwise go for it and enjoy the wonders of politics and teenage girls.
Due to her memory issues, I am not sure if we got to know the real Maea at all. I was intrigued by what little we learned about Johai, but it wasn’t enough. I really liked the princess, but again feel like there were layers to her that we never got to explore.
I am never fond of a love triangle; and also have a slight problem with the age differences. Maea is 16; Johai is 27; and I don’t think we are told how old Adair is, but he doesn’t seem young. And I have a real problem with Maea having any kind of a relationship with Adair when she knows, because she walked in on him, that he regularly meets women at parties and then has casual (lift their skirt) sex with them in back rooms. [Note: the scene isn’t explicit, just disturbing]
What really killed it for me is that I absolutely can not understand how anyone would think that the plan which led to this whole mess was a good idea. All I can say is, “knowledge is power.”
Summary = There are the seeds of interesting characters here and maybe, with the “plan” and love triangle potentially out of the way, I might give Book 2 a chance.
Narration: It was mostly ok, but there were multiple mispronounced words + at least 2 places where a short phrase was repeated -- Also, I don’t like between chapter music (I feel that it pulls you out of the story)
Readers who enjoy a mystery, a thriller, a romance, and a medieval setting all in one story will find what they are looking for in this book.
Now I can not wait to get started on Volume 2.
