This book was good not great. It was fairly well written. Very descriptive, decent character development, and after I think about it - a lot did happen. I was just bored by this for the most part. There were definitely some really good moments where I didn't want to put it down. Overall, I think it was just sort of boring. Nothing really happened. There was a lot of predictability and I didn't find Sira to be an amazing character that I wanted to know more about. I think I was just let down -all reviews made it seem like the AMAZING book of the year. Don't avoid this book, I would just say don't go out of your way to read it.
