I quite liked the novel. The pacing is just a bit on the slower side, as the events are rather tamer than those in other fantasy tales. Despite this, the pacing wasn't an issue at all, since the writing flows well and pulled me along. Still, young readers expecting dramatics or just amateurs of event-driven novels may not really appreciate this book; it is much more character-driven. I loved that the protagonist is a quietly strong *and* humble young woman with enough self-awareness to admit her flaws without languishing in self-flagellation and angst. She rises to the occasion, establishing and relying teamwork intelligently; a positive depiction of female leadership. Strongly recommended.

The writing has way too much unnecessary detail and the action is not very exciting. the style of the writing almost has a juvenile quality to it and treats the readers as if they were younger than the target audience. The book is written more like a tv script than a novel.
I often found myself skipping over entire paragraphs and still being able to follow the plot points.
