Good story but

I did enjoy listening to this book, there are parts that irked me but overall a good story that was rarely too dull. However the writing seemed a bit forced, the dialogues didn't feel very natural and the way the emotions are described, it almost feel like it is been forced down your throat.

There can be a 3-5 min gaps where they are just explaining their mood and emotions, it is the same thing over and over again between same characters. It was also very confusing sometimes when it switched between characters. X looks at Z and suddenly we're in Z's perspective. With that said, it is a good story and engaging.

Boring, predictable, and found wanting.

This novel is slow, boring, very predictable and repiticious. There are others that grasp magelore with humorous and realism.
