Easy to read and entertaining, but... not that good, to be honest. And I say this as a fan of coming of age YA fantasy.

The worldbuilding was kind of generic and superficial. The magic, without being particularly original, was more interesting. The characters were kind of likable but at the same time also generic and superficial, and they often reacted in ways that did not rang true.

Interesting enough for me to finish the book, but not to continue reading the series.

This opens an opportunity for Jai to enjoy freedom for the first time in his life. The adventures ensue.

Good. Comprehensive. Readable. Interesting characters. Interesting world. All good but TOO FREAKING LONG. Who advises these authors? This should have been split at an obvious place, which I will not spoil here.

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.com.
