Did not receive what was listed

I ordered a hardcover like-new edition. I received a beat-up paperback ARC copy. Not impressed.

Exceeded expectations

You will not regret purchasing this book! From chapter two (which takes no time to get to) it was hard to put down. S. A. Chakraborty has a gift for vivid description without overusing words to make you see into her world. The world building was amazing, the pacing perfect, the action fast paced, and a few times I found myself laughing out loud, cringing at the naivety of Ali, or gasping at something totally unexpected befalling a major character. Although it does not end on a cliffhanger (in my opinion), there are several questions posed that need to be answered in the sequels. I look forward to finding out! What I also liked is that, without trying too hard, the author makes you care for the characters without knowing everything there is to know about them just yet. Things I disliked: there was some “tell instead of show” regarding the development of relationships between characters. We’d be in a moment and then told in so many words that weeks have gone by and now they care for each other when it would’ve been cool to see that slowly develop throughout the book. I did like how strong the female lead is, how human-like Dara was, and how the plot was not easy to predict. Can’t wait to devour book two!
