It took me a bit to get in to this book, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. The world building is very very involved, and there are a lot of characters that are introduced. For me, it was a little overwhelming. About half-way through the book I got a little disconnected from it and wasn't sure I was liking it, but once I pushed through, I discovered I was thoroughly enjoying it, and felt connected to the heroine. Once I finished, I was definitely a fan, and am definitely moving on to the next book in the series!!
