There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My only beef was in trying to keep track of the characters' names - they are quite unfamiliar and I found myself getting off-track trying to decide on a pronunciation. I found the pronunciation and descriptive guide at the back of the book, and would urge the reader to go to it first to help learn the lay of the land.
I liked how this book started out: a new world to be built with interesting characters. A new pantheon to explore. A new adventure. After Riwenne encountered her second 'companion', the story started to become redundant and predictable. I almost put the book down at that point. I was bored. I decided I had made a commitment to writing a review so I pushed myself through to the end.
The last few chapters the pace definitely picked up. The story gained a few twists that added interest to the tale. Other than that, the action was already feeling beyond jaded. Yes, yes, Riwenne would figure it out and she and her merry band would move on leaving some casualties in their wake but with the promise to return and set it all straight.
The world building was good. I could picture the city in the clouds and the temple well enough. The characters were fleshed out about as well as they needed to be and held the promise of growth. This would be a great read for middle school age. The story, however, just did not distinguish itself in any way. If I had put my mind to it, I might have even figured out the twists. At that point, I just didn't care. I won't be reading any subsequent novels.
Are you a fan of anime? Do you enjoy a good steampunk novel? Then this is the book for you. The author blends steampunk with my favorite anime – Sailor Moon. Once I realized this in the way the author develops the story this book truly became hard to put down. I had to read more and see what was going to happen next. I see the wonderful blending of favorite characters brought to life in new ones. This story is full of fun surprises and some predictable moments, but I can’t complain, because it’s honestly how I wanted it to go. Now! I will say this…there is a HUGE twist the author throws into this book. My jaw dropped and my heart broke.
There honestly isn’t anything that I can really complain about concerning this story. The author has done a pretty good job telling this unique blending of a story. The characters are well-done and make this an enjoyable story.
I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. You get so much with this book. You get romance, drama, steampunk, danger, thrills, surprises, and heartbreak. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and learn what happens next and really hope for the best! If you’re a fan of Sailor Moon and looking for a fun new twist on it then this book is a good choice! Just make sure you check out the pronunciation guide in the back first so that you can get their names right. LOL!
