2.5 starseh... I have been really looking forward to reading this book and while I didn't dislike it, I didn't really like it either. To say it was disappointing is putting it mildly.Thankfully wither is a very quick read because if not for that I think I would have eventually put it down and not bothered to pick it back up. It is full of a lot of waiting around, big talk and very little action. And the authors dystopian world is never fully realised or as interesting as she would like it to be because you never truly get to see it, it is only ever spoken about, as 99% of the book takes place in a secluded manor house.Beautiful cover, intriguing premise, lack luster execution.
