This book was good. Do I think it is way over hyped? Absolutely. I feel like when a book is talked about as much as this one is, it sets the bar at an impossible level. I have started this book 3 different times and I had a hard time getting into it. I was just expecting more I guess. BUT it was a great book. The world building was superb. Seriously some of the best I have ever read. Once I got about halfway into the book I felt like I was in the book but I was a tad bored until then. I also think that some of the characters switched sides too much… Not sides exactly. But I guess the way they felt about magic. It’s good, bad, too powerful, destroy it, spread it around.. There was just a lot of flip flopping and the Prince was the worse one with the flip flopping.
Don’t get me wrong. It was a fantastic book and I am looking forward to the next one.. although I will probably forget it by next year.. But it just wasn’t all everyone said it was.
